I’m actually thrilled I got 76% right. Really happy.July 10, 2014 at 7:33 am #321923
69% right, down 1% from last year.July 10, 2014 at 7:35 am #321924
2014: 73 %
2013: 73 %
2012: 68 %July 10, 2014 at 7:36 am #321925
I’m sad that I changed some of my nominations last minute. I made some poor changes. </3July 10, 2014 at 7:38 am #321926
69% but I got more full categories correct than ever! I almost always miss at least one everywhere, so I’m happy about that.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJuly 10, 2014 at 7:40 am #321927
With all the curveballs this year, I still got 75% correct!July 10, 2014 at 7:40 am #321928
79% this year, which is far higher than I ever could have expected. It looks like I’ll end up second overall among users.
2013: 73% (Top 24 User)
Weird, I’ve gone up 6% every year.
Upset nominations that I called:
Reg E. Cathey
Best Categories (where I had perfect 5/5 or 6/6):
Comedy Supporting Actress
Worst Categories (where I had 3/6):
Comedy Guest Actor (mad about this one as I was back and forth between Christopher Meloni and Gary Cole for Veep)
Overall, I learned that I’ve become fairly good at predicting what odd snubs/nominations the Emmys are going to throw at us.July 10, 2014 at 7:42 am #321929
Much better than 68% in 2013 and 67% in 2012.July 10, 2014 at 7:46 am #321930
I made it right in Drama Series & Movie/Mini Actress and Actor
I’m proud of my inclusion of Kristen Wiig very much and really happy for her.
To fullfill my 5/6’s I missed Lena Headey in Supporting, Jeff Daniels in Actor, Jon Voight in supporting, Fred Armisen in supporting, Melissa McCarthy in Actress and Silicon Valley in Comedy SeriesJuly 10, 2014 at 7:49 am #321931
72%… Not as great as before…July 10, 2014 at 7:51 am #321932
Before yesterday I actually had Fred Armisen in my predictions, but I got scared and swapped him last minute! Would’ve had 6/6 in that category and would’ve been proud for taking a chance 🙁
The only category I got perfect is Variety Series.July 10, 2014 at 7:59 am #321933
Everything in variety series correct. I never thought Letterman would get in and stuck with Bill Maher. Everthing in reality. Kept SYTYCD over Survivor. I wish i had not bought into the Return to Zero hypeJuly 10, 2014 at 8:07 am #321934
74% but I always shoot myself in the foot with Guest Acting nominations and anything to do with reality TV since I don’t watch Reality TV and don’t have the pateince to sift through all of the guest candidates.
