Derbyites, what is your all-time best TV prediction that you’ve ever made at Gold Derby? Did you call a longshot that no one else did? Did you foresee any jawdropping upsets in recent years? Start bragging!October 26, 2015 at 12:40 pm #364173
Everyone was going with Steve Carell for his final season of The Office, but I stuck with Jim Parsons for TBBT. I’m not often right, but I was right about that :D!October 26, 2015 at 1:07 pm #364174
I was very happy to have been one of the 32 to correctly predict Maggie Gyllenhaal for her Globe win last year. I didn’t think she’d win anything else, but figured the combination of her previous Globe nominations and the Globe win for Sundance’s Elisabeth Moss the previous year in the same category would net her the win.
I’m also pretty pleased to have been one of the 74 to predict the Ellen Burstyn Emmy win in 2013, as veteran status in a scene stealing performance often goes further than people think it will.October 26, 2015 at 1:27 pm #364175
- Kathy Bates
- Jon Cryer
- “Full Measure”
- Not Cicely Tyson
And at SAG: Elisabeth Moss losing.October 26, 2015 at 1:36 pm #364177
I was 2nd place in the finale of Game of Thrones’ 5th season, in fact I had all the categories correct but another person got more points with the bets.October 26, 2015 at 1:43 pm #364178
Homeland winning Drama Series and Laura Linney’s win for The Big C are my top 2.October 26, 2015 at 1:53 pm #364179
I didn’t really predict it on GD, but on my awards, I gave Fred Armisen a nomination last year for Portlandia, and I was just brimming for the entire rest of the day when he actually got a real nomination at the real Emmys. That made my life.October 26, 2015 at 1:54 pm #364180
Tatiana Maslany getting in this year. Knew that SAG nom meant something
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.October 26, 2015 at 2:16 pm #364181
Predicting Bobby Cannavale winning for Boardwalk EmoireOctober 26, 2015 at 2:35 pm #364182
The Homeland, Lewis & Danes wins, which marked my favourite Emmy night!October 26, 2015 at 6:10 pm #364183
Steven Moffat (Sherlock: His Last Vow) beating Larry Kramer (The Normal Heart) for Mini/Movie Writing in 2014. After Sherlock got a bunch of wins at the Creative Arts ceremony (and the show’s first Emmys ever after being completely blanked for the first two years), I figured it would get at least one major award. Since the writers branch often goes their own way (e.g. The Hour beating Behind the Candelabra in the category the year before) and loves British series (e.g. Prime Suspect: The Final Act (2007), Little Dorrit (2009), Downton Abbey (2011)), this seemed like the logical place to reward the show.
Of course, the voters went even more in for Sherlock than anyone anticipated, and I was so close to switching to Benedict Cumberbatch in Lead Actor and Martin Freeman in Supporting Actor. Oh well, getting at least one of those three predictions correct was very satisfying.October 26, 2015 at 7:21 pm #364184
For the win, Jon Cryer’s lead actor win. Just like the voters, I felt his episode was the standout in a blah lineup. Very well deserve. For the nominations, Ben Feldman and Mark Margolis. Ben had that amazing debut on a show the voters loved/watched and Mark was part of a game changing moment on a show that was continually on the rise at that point. Also, Kate Burton’s nod for “Scandal”. She benefited from the “ABC theory” and a great description of her dazzling episode.October 27, 2015 at 4:12 pm #364185
coming in 9th place out of 1363 people predicting the Globes last year for TV! It almost made up for how terrible I did on the film side LOL!!!
My proudest picks were Kevin Spacey for House of Cards over Clive Owen for The Knick, and having the balls to The Affair would not only WIN Best Drama Series, but also WIN for its breakout star Ruth Wilson! 🙂
I was actually regretting picking Matt Bomer over Bill Murray as the ceremony was going on, I’ll never forget it. Then they announced Matt as the winner and jumped for joy, I was so proud of myself and of Mr. Bomer’s well-earned recogniton for the great actor that he is.October 27, 2015 at 4:40 pm #364186
It’ll probably be in December when the Globe nominations get announced and Jussie Smollett is nominated for Supporting Actor. Not many people are predicting him.October 27, 2015 at 5:31 pm #364187
Not big shockers at all, but I predicted these because they simply had the best tapes, when everyone was 100% sure of someone else:
– Julie Bowen´s first win. I remember nobody was taking her seriously with Lynch there, but I hadn´t the slightest doubt in my mind she was the best of the bunch.
– Damien Lewis. The moment I saw his tape, I knew Cranston was out.
– Tony Hale. The moment I saw his speech, I just knew and never even doubted. Burgess who?
