glenn whipp primetime emmys predictions

15 experts predicted 22 top races at the Primetime Emmy Awards, and Glenn Whipp (LA Times) proved the savviest pundit, scoring 75%. He correctedly predicted all nominees for Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Reality-Competition Series, and Best Variety Series. He was also one of the few to foresee the surprise nomination for Adam Driver ("Girls").

Following close behind him were Matt Roush (TV Guide Magazine), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), and Steve Pond (The Wrap) with 72%.

Gold Derby's own Paul Sheehan scored 71%, while Debra Birnbaum (TV Guide Magazine) and Ken Tucker both predicted 70% of nominees.

Pete Hammond (Deadline) was 69% accurate. John Kubicek (Buddy TV) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil followed with 68%, while Mike Cidoni (Associated Press) and Daniel Manu (TV Without Pity) came in at 67%.

Robert Bianco (USA Today) correctly predicted 64%, and Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly) got 58% right.
