According to Gold Derby’s racetrack odds, this year’s quartet of guest acting winners are going to be a pair of “Saturday Night Live” hosts — Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon — and a duo playing a troubled married couple on “Masters of Sex” — Allison Janney and Beau Bridges.
But are these four really slam dunks to win Emmys in the guest categories, or could we have a surprise or two?
In the video below, Gold Derby editors Marcus James Dixon and Rob Licuria come out swinging to defend their predictions in these top four races: Comedy Guest Actress, Comedy Guest Actor, Drama Guest Actress and Drama Guest Actor. They also compare their choices to the overall combined predictions of Gold Derby’s Experts, Editors and Users.
Amongst the possible upsets, they warn you to be on the lookout for surprises like Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black“), Brad Garrett (“The Crazy Ones“) Lisa Kudrow (“Scandal“) and Robert Morse (“Mad Men“).
