Emmys are known for their upsets, but the are a few years when the upsets prevailed in most of the ceremony. With that said, which do you think is the most unexpected year from 2005 until now? Mine is 2007 for these reasons:
-James Spader won over James Gandolfini
-Ricky Gervais won over Steve Carell and Alec Baldwin
-Katherine Heigl won over Aida Turturro and Lorraine Bracco
-Sally Field won over Edie Falco
-Jaime Pressly won over…everybody in that categoryMarch 12, 2015 at 1:21 pm #343510
I suppose Late Night with Conan O’Brien finally winning an Emmy for Writing also counts as a slight surprise.March 12, 2015 at 2:19 pm #343511
Definitely 2013 was a great year for shockers. I mean, Tony Hale, The Voice, The Colbert Report, Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney, Bobby Cannavale, Ellen Burstyn and of course, the crown jewel of them all, Merritt Wever.
I totally failed with my predictions that year.March 12, 2015 at 3:29 pm #343512
Cannavale and Hale were locks.March 12, 2015 at 3:59 pm #343513
Last year solely for the Mini/Movie wins. I don’t think anyone saw a Cumberbatch or Writing upset.March 12, 2015 at 4:00 pm #343514
Most beloved but unexpected, Jeff Daniels and Merritt WeverMarch 12, 2015 at 4:07 pm #343515
Cannavale and Hale were locks.
I want to give this a thumbs-up ironically.March 12, 2015 at 4:13 pm #343516
I’ll give you two. No one could’ve beaten Sunday’s best and Hale was way overdue for AD and voters knew that which was pratically half of his win. Jesus thedemonhog (not pun intented) you guys made a telecast about it -_-“March 12, 2015 at 4:26 pm #343517
I wouldn’t say LOCKS for either of them. Personally I thought Patinkin or Banks had better shots than Cannavale and I thought one of the Modern Family guys or Bill Hader could have won over Hale.March 12, 2015 at 5:31 pm #343518
According the GoldDerby odds that year, Cannavale was in fifth place (ahead of Carter only) with 50/1 odds and Hale was in third place with 9/1 odds, so they were in no way locks. The drama frontrunner was Patinkin at 5/4 odds, with Paul and Banks right behind him at 27/10 and 7/2 odds, respectively. Along with Dinklage in fourth place at 25/1 odds, I remember that race being a five-way one, with everyone except Carter having a shot. As for comedy, Burrell was far and away the frontrunner with 8/13 odds; the 2nd place nominee was O’Neill with 9/2 odds.March 12, 2015 at 7:17 pm #343519
Because most people understimate tapes.March 12, 2015 at 10:00 pm #343520
2011 delivered some shockers as well with Kyle Chandler winning best actor drama Jason Katims winning writing for the magnificent finale, Barry Pepper for “The Kennedys” and it should have been expected but Jim Parsons winning again and not Carell was kind of a shock plus the Melissa McCarthy win was a big shock.
