    I plea to all users when making ur predictions, Predict the nominee you think DESERVES to win for now. Not the nominee who you think will win.

    Why do this? Because as everyone knows, the industry visits this website. They see who this site is predicting. They are influenced as most people have not seen all the nominees.

    Last year, nearly every acting winner predicted on this site WON. It didn’t matter if Judith Light and Tituss Burgess had better episodes than Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin. It didn’t matter if many BLL fans though Shailene Woodley was more of a standout than Laura Dern. It didn’t matter if Lange stans thought she was better than Kidman. Or that Donald Glover is not funny. Or SKarsgaard character was too unlikeable. Or Riz Ahmed too reserved. If our site put them out front, they won with a popular vote now in play.

    I am convinced this website steered voters in certain directions with our frontrunners!

    Literally the only 2 acting categories where there was an “upset” was the one category where there was no consensus from our users. Experts/editors were evenly divided between Metz, Newton, and Brown. Dowd of course won.

    So it’s simple, if you DON’T think Sterling K. Brown, Elisabeth Moss, Donald Glover, Kate McKINNON, Ann Dowd, Alec Baldwin, etc etc etc are the most deserving this year, DON’T PREDICT THEM YET. You can always change ur predictions after voting ends. If u put who u feel is the most deserving perhaps the industry which can see whose out front everyday on here will be persuaded. It’s worth a shot! Let’s face it most of these people do not deserve to win again and it sucks this website is steering people in that repetitive direction due to the lust to be right about “predictions”. Well, be right after voting ends! For now, PUSH FOR UR FAVES! Stan for Yvonne! Vanessa! Thandie! Sandra! Claire! Matthew! Whoever! Shake up the hierarchy!! Even if you don’t think they will end up on top. F’ CONFORMITY!! TOWANDA!

    ALSO, EDITORS- Please put the Short Form acting categories in the predictions center! They are actors too and some of us are invested!

    Though i think you might be overestimating this site’s influence a tad bit, I somewhat agree with you. It’s partly why I’m not in a hurry to make my predictions, if i do ever actually get around to it.

    I do wish people here were a bit more creative with their predictions; I was surprised by how many people actually thought Anthony Hopkins was a lock for a nomination when we found out he was going supporting. Mind-blowing stuff…

    Edit: forgot to add that that’s not really what this site’s about so probably not gonna happen. It’s all about getting it right.

    Funny, I never see you win anything so maybe u should stop being so robotic and mix it up a bit.

    Besides, as I said, u can change to who you think WILL win after Emmy voting is done.

    That’s funny as I came in second place (percentage-wise actually tied for first place) for the 2018 Emmy predictions, out of 3,1k people. So yeah

    Short Form actors are people too!

    Riley, Daniel, Amanda, or Chris “Boomer” Beacheum please write an article to bring attention to short form nominee on her 7th Emmy nomination with no wins, LEGEND Christina Pickles! She was the Sandra Oh of the 80s, losing 5 times for a medical drama in Supporting actress. She than lost for Friends. She lost her supporting category to her own guest star Doris Roberts who was in 1 episode! And to her co star Bonnie Bartlett 2 times! This is HER TIME!

    SHORT FORM FOR THE WIN! You just know this is how Jane Kazcmarek will win an Emmy someday. Someone get Angela Lansbury on the Short Form actress ballot!

    LOL!  I like the passion Montana.  I too think most voters are lemmings and just go for the front runner.  This site has awesome power and can play a role in that.  I predict who I want to win anyways.  It’s better than just jumping on the train of rubber stamping.

    Only a strong, vibrant, opinionated, and against the grain Goldderby can save these awards shows from themselves. Record low ratings for the Oscars and Emmys. Something’s gotta change!

    My scores are already low enough. I don’t need to make them lower by adding my hopes into there.

    The Gold Derby predictions center might have a minimal effect on nominations, but I doubt we can do anything to say who the winner should be.

    The rest of this thread notwithstanding, you make a good point that this site has the power to influence some voters. However you organize your rankings doesn’t affect your points until the game is terminated (evening of Sept. 17 for Emmys). I’ve changed my top choices to personal favorites and will revert them to predictions when voting ends the evening of Aug. 27.

    You sir, or Madam, are truly going the Lord’s work!

    We have the power!
