We’re predicting 36 Emmy categories this year, and nine of them will be presented during this weekend’s two Creative Arts ceremonies. Have you made your picks yet? You only have a few hours to do as we’ll shut down the prediction center before the first winners are announced on Saturday (Sept. 10) at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
A staggering 91 awards will be handed out over the weekend, and we’re expecting that HBO’s epic fantasy series “Game of Thrones” and NBC’s long-running sketch comedy series “Saturday Night Live” will do particularly well. That’s according to the combined odds of the Expert TV journalists we’ve polled, Gold Derby’s Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Emmy winners and all Users who make up the largest and often savviest bloc of predictors.
But what do you think? Make your predictions right here. You’ll compete to win our contest prizes for best picks — $500 (first place), $300 (second place) and $200 (third place) in Amazon gift certificates — a place of honor on our leaderboard and a starring role in next year’s Top 24 Users (the two dozen folks who do the best predicting this year’s Emmys). Be sure to read our contest rules.
