    What I got right:

    Best Comedy Series (Modern Family)

    Comedy Directing (Modern Family)

    Comedy Writing (30 Rock)

    Drama Series (Breaking Bad)

    Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Anna Gunn)

    Drama Directing (House of Cards)

    Drama Writing (Homeland)

    Miniseries/Movie (Behind The Candelabra)

    Lead Actor in a Miniseries/Movie (Michael Douglas)

    Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Movie (Ellen Burstyn)

    Miniseries/Movie Directing (Behind The Candelabra)

    So I failed almost every single acting category and this is my first year predicting the Emmys here at the GoldDerby. Is this good overall? (what I got right)

    Of the 23 I predicted, I only got 8 right loooool. They were: Drama Series, Drama Actress, Drama Supporting Actress, Drama Writing, Drama Directing, Movie/Miniseries, Movie/Mini Actor, and Comedy Actress.

    I was persuaded to go with FX’s Louie instead of ABC’s Modern Family for best comedy series. No offense—I need to stop considering some of what others @ GoldDerby.com suggest.

    I may be one of a precious few who correctly predicted lead actor in a drama series to Jeff Daniels in HBO’s The Newsroom

    Where I was correct:

    —DRAMA—
    Drama Series: Breaking Bad (AMC)
    Lead Actor: Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom (HBO)
    Supporting Actress: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad (AMC)
    Guest Actress: Carrie Preston, The Good Wife (CBS)
    Directing: House of Cards (Netflix)
    Writing: Homeland (Showtime)

    —COMEDY—
    Lead Actress: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep (HBO)
    Guest Actor: Bob Newhart, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
    Guest Actress: Melissa Leo, Louie (FX)

    —MINISERIES/MOVIE—
    Miniseries/Movie: Behind the Candelabra (HBO)
    Lead Actor: Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelabra (HBO)
    Directing: Behind the Candelabra (HBO)

    I got Comedy Actress, Comedy Actor, Comedy Guest Actor, Comedy Writing, Miniseries/Movie Actor, Miniseries/Movie Directing, Miniseries/Movie Supporting Actor, Miniseries/Movie, Drama Series, Drama Actress, Drama Supporting Actress, Drama Writing and Variety Special. Oh well.

    I had a lot of the winners in second, though: Tony Hale, Laura Linney, Carrie Preston, House of Cards, Melissa Leo, Colbert Report, The Voice, Heidi Klum/Tim Gunn, Ellen Burstyn… damn. Should’ve gone with my gut with these.

    Note
    to self: Next year when you predict the Emmy winners, take whatever you
    have in third or forth place and move it up first place.

    I sucked! I got 4 comedy categories (JLD, Parsons, Directing, Series) right, 3 drama (Gunn, Writing, Directing) and 3 miniseries (Douglas, Directing, Series). I also didn’t predict The Voice and The Colbert Report. Shouldn’t have switched from Cromwell to Bakula in the last minute.

    Overall, I’m happy with the winners, it’s more refreshing and better than what I predicted. Well, except for Ellen Burstyn’s win.

    All 9 drama categories
    Comedy Actor
    Comedy Guest Actor
    Mini/Movie
    Mini/Movie Actor
    Mini/Movie Directing
    Mini/Movie Supporting Actor

    Total of 15 wins predicted.

    Comedy really hurt my end result. I knew this was a transitional year and therefore more prone to surprises. I just didn’t expect all of the suprises in Drama to be correct and none of the surprises in Comedy I was expecting to happen.

    EDIT: Would’ve been 16 if I hadn’t changed my prediction from the Voice yesterday. i didn’t feel right about it, but figured people were right about Amazing Race winning again. Boy was I wrong to do that…
