As we get closer and closer to Emmy noms being unveiled on Thursday morning, more experts are giving us their predix. See below -- we just heard from Robert Bianco and Mo Ryan, who both make some BOLD predix:
Even though I would really like to see Mo Ryan's predictions (i.e. no Modern Family, multiple Parks and Rec acting noms, Community) they just really don't seem like realistic predictions. Too optimistic for critically acclaimed shows, and not enough for Emmy favorites, who will be nominated.
As for Robert Bianco, his predictions are just dead wrong. Community and The Middle for Comedy Series although good is just plain wrong. As, to a lesser extent is Girls. Community in the acting races although nice to see, is again not going to happen. He absolutely snubbed Parks and Rec in all categories, when at the very least Amy Poehler will be nominated. He also has way too many nominations predicted for The Middle, which hasn't been on the Emmy's radar at all.
I really find it dissapointing, as both of their predictions are only going to serve to throw off what the odds really are. It seems they both based their predictions too much off of personal opinion.
EMMYOLOGISTS? REALLY? This why I don't like these critics and their predictions. Years ago something like this came up and I remember saying that these critics and incorrectly called experts should really go head to head with us users in terms of predictions and see how easily we end up winning those bets.
Robert Bianco...I mean he's predicting Yvette Nicole Brown, Alexander Skarsgaard and Emily VanCamp. I don't even know what to say because I will most likely be asked to apologize and bow down to "the experts". Please...Let's go over to Mo Ryan's predictions. Dan Stevens for Downton Abbey and Jason Isaacs for Awake? Jennifer Morrison, Jane Levy, Cougar Town for Series. Busy Phillips and Carley Chaikin of all people in Supporting Actress. Josh Hopkins for Supporting Actor. My God....
I know it's cool and means a lot that "real critics" from "real publications" are pitching in at The Envelope, but sometimes you just have to say "no, thanks". Is this even logical for when the moment comes to make odds from this chart? Is it even logical to the credibility you want to get for The Envelope?
Did anybody explain what they had to do with those "predictions". It sure seems as if they thought it was a wish list. Look at Matt Roush's list, for example, and compare it to Bianco and Ryan's...that's! a prediction list.
I'm sorry Tom, but "BOLD" is not the right word here.
I'm just going to say it, woah Mo. She has made some compelling points for nominees though : Andre Braugher for Men of a Certain Age Birdsong for Miniseries Adam Scott for Parks and Rec Casey Wilson for Happy Endings I'd love to see Cougar Town, or in a dream world Cox, but this year neither make the top 10 for my predix, here's hoping I'm wrong and she's right!
Let's see what these experts have to say after Gold Derby runs their scores. Next time they may pay more attention to the assigment they were given .... to predict, not to wish. Bianco used to be part of the original goldderby 10 years ago so you'd think he'd know better but maybe he just doesn't care?
There is clearly a lot of wishful thinking, playing favorites or hating with those predictions. Kristen Bell (from both), Lauren Graham, Sandra Oh, Jane Levy, Neill Flynn, Yvette Brown, Emily VanCamp, Jennifer Morrison.
Furthermore the fact that Bianco has no Amy Poehler in Lead Comedy Actress and Ryan has no Modern Family predictions whatsoever is ridiculous. Ryan's Comedy Supporting Actress predicts are pretty much a hot mess.
