Last year our user Chancey Plagman (screen name “Chanceman”) did so well at predicting the Daytime Emmy nominations — 14th place out of hundreds of predictors — that he’s now featured in a league along with the other Top 24 Users to predict this year’s noms.

The Top 24 Users did the best at predicting last year’s Daytime Emmy nominations (62.78%) when competing against Gold Derby’s Editors (60.56%), our Experts (58.33%) and All Users (58.33%). Which group will come out victorious this year? (See all prediction accuracy rates here.)

Will Alison Sweeney finally earn Daytime Emmys love for ‘Days of Our Lives’ farewell?

Plagman is 19 years old and hails from Harlan, IA where he’s a full-time student at Minnesota State University Moorhead. We sat down with Plagman to get a feel for what he’s currently predicting at the Daytime Emmys. See Plagman’s early predictions below, and resist the urge to copy or steal them as your own.

“I am saying right now that ‘The Young and the Restless‘ will win Drama Series, but ‘Days of Our Lives‘ is a very close second,” predicts Plagman.

“I think they’ll award Alison Sweeney for sure for Best Actress, and that will be a big way of awarding it this year. ‘General Hospital‘ will win a few I think, and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful‘ has a big vote, too.  So I think they’ll turn to ‘Young and the Restless,'” he explains.

Among his other predictions, Plagman thinks that Anthony Geary will triumph as Best Actor, Blake Berris will take home Best Supporting Actor and Amelia Heinle will earn a trophy for Best Supporting Actress.
