Once again, the nominating committee didn’t embrace any brand new dramas or comedies (the only nominee from a freshman series is Kevin Spacey from “House of Cards“). Instead, they hung on to aging programs like “Boardwalk Empire” and “30 Rock” and welcomed a handful of contenders they had previously overlooked for their current roles: Don Cheadle (“House of Lies“), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones“), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep“), and Kerry Washington (“Scandal“).
Even so, two of our Users — me123 and OscarMan2.0 — scored best with an impressive 78%. Me123 breaks the tie because he earned the most game points (12,564), thus establishing himself as winner of our reader contest. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Certificate.
Another 12 Users scored above our best editor — Daniel Montgomery — who came in at 73%. I got 70% while Guru and Charles Bright were close behind at 68%. Marcus Dixon and Matt Noble scored 65%, and Rob Licuria earned 63%. Our in-house experts Tom O’Neil and Paul Sheehan both scored 68%.
Overall, we did best at predicting the lineups of Comedy Ensemble (87%), Drama Actress (80%), and Movie/Miniseries Actress (74%).
