Last year, Merritt Wever was responsible for one of the biggest jaw-droppers in Emmys history when she won Best Comedy Supporting Actress for “Nurse Jackie.” Why? Because heading into the ceremony, this industry favorite had disastrous 100/1 odds and was predicted to come in seventh place in her category.
So, who could be this year’s Merritt Wever based on their lowly odds according to Gold Derby’s overall predictions? Scroll down to find out the potential Emmy shockers of 2014. (Note: In some races there are ties for last place.)
Gold Derby founder Tom O’Neil polled his Editors immediately following Wever’s shocking victory last year. They all came to the conclusion that Wever overcame the worst odds because her category had no major frontrunner and that she was simply so well-liked amongst her peers that Emmy voters just couldn’t vote against her.
If any of the above performers or series win Monday night, it will be a huge shocker. Do you have a feeling that our odds are wrong and that some of these contenders can still pull off an Emmy victory? Sound off in the comments section below.
