Globe voters really threw some curveballs this year with several of the television choices. Our winner Ryan Lapierre had some of those impressive predictions, including “Transparent” for Best Comedy Series, Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin“) for Best Comedy Actress, “The Affair” for Best Drama Series, Ruth Wilson (“The Affair”), and Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Honorable Woman“) for Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actress
Our most impressive score by an Expert was from Ken Tucker (Yahoo) with 64% accuracy. Way behind that rate in second place was Thom Geier with 46% correct.
