Almost 800 of you predicted who would win the Emmy races this year. In all, you entered over 15,000 predictions and the results of these have been tabulated. Our user Beau topped everyone, including all our experts and editors, by foreseeing 20 of the 25 categories. He was one of just 12% of our users who thought Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") would repeat as Best Comedy Actor while Julie Bowen ("Modern Family") would win Best Supporting Comedy Actress . 

Five percent of you predicted the two biggest upsets on Emmy night -- Kyle Chandler ("Friday Night Lights") winning Best Drama Actor and Barry Pepper taking Best Movie/Mini Actor. None of our experts or editors foresaw those surprises. By strategically betting on these races with big payoffs, Dolphin racked up 28642.67 points. 

Be sure to click through all three tabs: Summaries lists the accuracy for users, experts and editors; By Categories breaks down the votes for each nominee and By Users details all of your results.
