I’ve been torn between picking the favorite (Brown), and an upset win for Hugh Laurie. In the old format I think Brown would be a lock, but in this new format it’s kinda iffy for me. What do you guys think? Is Brown a lock or am I wise to make Laurie my money betSeptember 15, 2016 at 1:37 am #1201922765
It can go either way, actually. But my money is on Sterling.September 15, 2016 at 7:42 am #1201922863
My hunch is the voting will go…
I really think, however, only the first three are in serious play. If O.J. underperforms Sunday night, I can see Laurie upsetting but otherwise, if voters cast their ballots on quality, Brown prevails and if name rec wins the day, Travolta gets a career Emmy.

I’m sticking with Brown until the end.September 15, 2016 at 10:30 am #1201922904
I am betting on Laurie. He was my pick the second I watched The Night Manager so may as well see it through.September 15, 2016 at 2:53 pm #1201923038
GusCruz, Brown is still the favourite in the Gold Derby odds with fourteen of eighteen Experts backing him.

It should be Bokeem. But will be Brown.

I’ve had Brown all the way through until I realized this last weekend that vote splitting is going to become the new thing under this system. So I switched my pick to the one guy who doesn’t have a conflict in this category.

I don’t know what people see in Laurie, is such an empty performance.
The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.September 15, 2016 at 6:00 pm #1201923095
I was most captivated by Laurie’s performance, so my order is:

For me, it’s so obvious that Woodbine should win (since Joey Pollari wasn’t nominated). Then it’s Plemons, then Brown, after whom there’s a big gap. IMO, Hugh Laurie is actually the weak link here – there was nothing new or interesting in his performance (nor in the series, save for the always extraordinary Olivia Colman), Travolta and Schwimmer at least had a lot of camp value and/or sincerity.
Sterling K. Brown is probably going to win and I’m completely fine with that fact. Not only is he extraordinary, but the Emmy win would also boost his career.
