What to think of those wacky Emmy Award nominations? Don’t fret: all is revealed by Gold Derby editors Tom O’Neil, Paul Sheehan, Chris Beachum, Daniel Montgomery and Marcus Dixon., who square off in this video slugfest and audio podcast (both of which are embedded below).

They point to the biggest Emmy shockers — like “Silicon Valley” eclipsing “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Girls” in the race for Best Comedy Series and Ricky Gervais (“Derek”) bumping Andy Samberg (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) out of the lineup for Best Comedy Actor. Hey, how did Melissa McCarthy (“Mike and Molly”) sneak back into the comedy actress lineup?
Our Editors have strong, passionate, oft-clashing predictions of ultimate winners. “Breaking Bad” apostles like Dixon can’t imagine any rival beating it for Best Drama Series, but O’Neil, Beachum and others come out swinging in this slugfest for “True Detective” and even “House of Cards.”
