While our Users are overwhemingly predicting that “Modern Family” will win a record-breaking sixth consecutive Comedy Series award at the upcoming Emmys, they are backing “Parks and Recreation” and “Orange is the New Black” when it comes to filling in their dream ballots. The disconnect between what our Users predict will win Best Comedy Series and what they think should win is startling. “Modern Family” has four times as much support as “Transparent” as the predicted winner but ranks only fifth among those laffers that our Users like the most.
On the drama side, our Users like the runner-up for the Emmy, “Game of Thrones,” over the predicted winner “House of Cards.” And the long-running “The Good Wife” and newcomer “Better Call Saul” make the grade with our Users ahead of likely Emmy contenders “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey.”
Cast your own Emmy Dream Ballot starting below with Best Comedy Series. And be sure to predict who will make it onto the real Emmy ballot as well. Best predictions of those will win $1,000. And the 24 Users with the best scores advance to a team to compete against our Experts and Editors next year. Meet the guy who won our contest to predict the Emmys last year — and learn how he did it and how you can be our next Gold Derby superstar.
