Congratulations to our User Jessica for a terrific score of 92.59% when predicting the 2017 Emmy Awards winners on Sunday. She is actually tied with Movieguy and James William at that score but has a better point score of 8,110 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 2,700 people worldwide predicted these Emmys champs in 27 categories for the ceremony hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS and held in downtown Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater. Our top scorer got 25 of the 27 categories correct.
