So how did Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black“) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan“) beat the Emmy odds and pull off shocking Emmy nominations last month? To crack the case, we recruited Monty — our sassy, squeaky-voice investigative reporter — and a few other rascals to chat with us via video. And, for fun, we threw in clips from our recent chats with Maslany and Schreiber themselves. (Watch the lively mash-up below).

Both Maslany and Schreiber had lowly 100/1 odds to receive Emmy nominations, according to our predictions. But now that they’re in, can they actually WIN?
Monty and I examine the Maslany/Schreiber conundrum in our weekly episode of “The Gold Derby Show.” It’s a topic so big that Monty brings in a whole range of familiar-looking surprise analysts to help break it down.
We also feature excerpts from exclusive Gold Derby interviews with Maslany and Schreiber (watch them in their entirety in our contenders gallery). And we unpack the current Gold Derby odds for their races (see them here).
See Tatiana’s up-to-date Gold Derby odds for Best Drama Actress, where she’s in third place with 12/1 odds. See Schreiber’s current rankings for Best Drama Actor, where he’s tied for fifth place at odds of 100/1.
