    Just terrible. Terrible. 45% is one of my worst scores. I’m usually better at predicting the writing/directing categories than the acting ones but still went with Jodie Foster even though I kept going back and forth with Gail Mancuso. Got everything else right though.

    In the comedy acting categories I only got Louis-Dreyfus right with Parsons and Janney occupying the second place in their respective categories. Didn’t see Ty Burrell coming this year and while he’s the best thing about the show, he did not deserve it this year.

    Regarding the drama acting categories, I KNEW Aaron Paul was going to take that goddamn Emmy and I wish I could “slap” the naysayers that tried to bring me down. Gunn and Cranston were easy to predict. Margulies was a lazy choice but I’m not mad. Let’s hope Caplan wins next year (at least she killed it on the red carpet, I want her to marry me and do bad things to me).

    And let’s not talk about the mini-series/tv-movie categories. Only got The Normal Heart/Fargo and Freeman in second place. Everything else was a disaster.

    What about you mates?

    ^ I’m with you. 48% is just terrible, but it was a year that had upsets I wasn’t expecting and favourites winning when I was predicting an upset.

    I got 12 winners right on the money and had 11 of the winners in second place. As usually, so close to greatness and yet, still so far from greatness.

    I had Jessica Lange winning Best Actress in a Movie or Mini!! I knew Tyson would suffer the same fate as Rashad. I wish I hadn’t sucumb to peer pressure and switched from Bates to Roberts….thank goodness I kept her in second.

    Normal Heart
    Directing, mini/movie 
    Writing, mini/movie
    Directing, drama series
    Writing, drama series
    Aaron Paul
    Anna Gunn
    Bryan Cranston
    Breaking Bad
    Colbert Report

    got 3/5 on the guest acting/reality host awards

    I had a sort of a vague theory the Emmys default to film stars so I was predicting Robin Wright & Matthew McConaughey wins. Didn’t pan out.

    Was expecting to score better, but I ended up in 57th place (55th if you count only users) which is the closest I ever got to the Top24. Some of my choices were stubborn, like sticking with Veep even knowing they wouldn’t win (fangirling took the best of me) or making last minutes changes with The Tonight Show, Cicely Tyson and Claire Danes.

    Correctly predicted: Drama Series, Drama Actor, Drama Supporting Actress, Drama Writing, Drama Directing, Comedy Writing, Comedy Directing, Comedy Actress, Comedy Supporting Actress, Mini/Movie Writing, Movie, Minisseries, Reality Host, Guest Actress Drama, Guest Actress Comedy, Guest Actor Comedy.

    Had Martin Freeman, Jim Parsons, The Amazing Race, Julianna Margulies, Colbert Report and Jessica Lange in second, Aaron Paul, Joe Morton, Modern Family in third and the rest were lost causes.
