Derbyites, what is your all-time best TV prediction that you’ve ever made at Gold Derby? Did you call a longshot that no one else did? Did you foresee any jawdropping upsets in recent years? Our forum posters, many of whom are Hollywood insiders, have begun sharing their proudest TV predictions. Read some of their comments below and then join the discussion in our forums here.
FNLFan89: Steven Moffat (“Sherlock: His Last Vow”) beating Larry Kramer (“The Normal Heart”) for Mini/Movie Writing in 2014. After “Sherlock” got a bunch of wins at the Creative Arts ceremony (and the show’s first Emmys ever after being completely blanked for the first two years), I figured it would get at least one major award.
NateDoggg: I was very happy to have been one of the 32 to correctly predict Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Honorable Woman”) for her Globe win last year. I didn’t think she’d win anything else, but figured the combination of her previous Globe nominations and the Globe win for Sundance’s Elisabeth Moss the previous year in the same category would net her the win.
Josh Labron: Everyone was going with Steve Carell for his final season of “The Office,” but I stuck with Jim Parsons for “The Big Bang Theory.” I’m not often right, but I was right about that!
24Emmy: “Homeland” winning Drama Series and Laura Linney‘s win for “The Big C” are my top two.
TWNickPeek: Predicting Jessica Lange (“American Horror Story: Coven”) pretty much when everyone picked Cicely Tyson (“The Trip to Bountiful”).
joef123: Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) getting in this year. Knew that SAG nom meant something.
KevinDillon: Predicting Bobby Cannavale winning for “Boardwalk Emoire.”
