Daytime Emmys prediction scores: Best performances by our Experts, Editors and Users

Congratulations to our User TWDanBeebe for achieving the impressive top score of 72% predicting the 2015 Daytime Emmy nominations at Gold Derby. In fact, he ties with User Joey_Valentino but has the better overall score of 24,585 by wisely using his 500 and 200 point bets.

While many of this year’s Daytime Emmy nominees were expected, some of our winner’s predictions list were considered longer shots. They include Christian LeBlanc (“The Young and the Restless“) for Best Actor, Peggy McCay (“Days of Our Lives“) for Best Actress, Jacob Young (“The Bold and the Beautiful“) for Best Supporting Actor, and Lisa LoCicero (“General Hospital“) for Best Supporting Actress.

You can see their scores and yours in our leaderboard rankings of all contestants, which also includes links to see each participant’s predictions. Or you can find your score by clicking on “My Award Scores,” which appears in the gold menu bar when you’re signed in to your account.

For his efforts, TWDanBeebe wins a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating his eligibility based upon our contest rules.

As Gold Derby Users just like you usually turn out to be our smartest prognosticators, it’s vital that you now give us your predictions. Make the best predictions and you could win our contest prize: $100 Amazon gift certificate and a place of honor in our famous leaderboards.

In order to win, you must have the highest accuracy percentage – and maybe more than that. If more than one player has the best accuracy, the winner is the person with the highest accuracy plus most game points. So, remember to place your three super bets when making predictions. Each player gets one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 points with all the other categories worth 100 points. Strategy is key. Place those super bets wisely and they could crown you our winner.

Get started by making your own predictions for Best Drama Series using our easy drag-and-drop menu found at the bottom of this post. You can continue to update and change your predictions until the weekend of the awards, starting Friday, April 24 with the Creative Arts ceremony and concluding on Sunday, April 26, at the live telecast on the Pop Network. Just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice. And remember to place your 500 and 200-point bets wisely.
