Our odds predicted "Homeland" to sweep the dramatic acting races, but the Showtime drama ended up losing two of its three bids, winning only Best Drama Actress for Claire Danes.

We also failed to foresee the victories by "30 Rock" stars Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey, who won Comedy Actor and Comedy Actress honors.

Despite those surprises, one user managed to correctly predict all eight winners: TripleJ1988. Ten others predicted seven out of eight correctly.

None of our editors scored that well. Our best was Daniel Montgomery, with six categories correct. Four others correctly picked five: Chris Beachum, Marcus Dixon, Darrin Dortch, and Matt Noble.

One of our experts predicted seven categories correctly: Christopher Rosen (Huffington Post). Two others predicted five: Glenn Whipp (LA Times) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil.

Seven experts picked four out of eight winners: Thelma Adams (Yahoo!), Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Richard Horgan (Fishbowl LA), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), and Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan.

Two experts picked three out of eight: Thom Geier (Entertainment Weekly) and Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).
