Early Emmy predictions: See Gold Derby’s official racetrack odds

Just hours after Emmy nominations were unveiled, we already have initial predictions as to what will win on Sept. 20. Check out the forecasts of our seven Editors here and our Top 24 Users here (those two dozen folks who did best predicting the winners last year). Added to these are the predictions of hundreds of Users just like you. We combine all of these — plus those of our Experts who will be chiming in soon — to calculate the odds of winning for each nominee. 

Make your own Emmy predictions and you could win a place of honor on our leaderboard, a starring role in next year’s Top 24 Users and one of three contest prizes: $500 for first place, $300 for second place, and $200 for third place. Prizes will be bestowed as gift certificates to be redeemed at Amazon. See our contest rules for more info.
