My proudest predictions:
Fleabag in series, actress, writing, and directing
Succession in WritingSeptember 23, 2019 at 9:49 am #1203098061
I feel pretty proud I didn’t switch out these three:
2)Chernobyl, Directed by Johan Renck (HBO)
3)ChernobylSeptember 23, 2019 at 9:54 am #1203098075
Patricia Arquette for “The Act”September 23, 2019 at 9:56 am #1203098079
I’m personally really proud of predicting Peter Dinklage. Drama Supporting Actor was an absolute mad house this year. Anybody could’ve taken it. I knew he was somewhat of an underdog in this race, but I just had a feeling he could pull off the upset.

Tony Shalhoub. I know everyone was predicting him but I called it the second he won the SAG award actors like him.September 23, 2019 at 10:08 am #1203098099
Fleabag in Series. It was unpredictable.
Additionally Chernobyl in Limited. At the end I had some hesitations, but I stuck with it.
The biggest regret is Comedy Directing. I had Fleabag for the whole time, but I’be switched it to Barry. I figured that the Acadamy regrets not rewarding the very buzzy Teddy Perkins and make it right with equally buzzy ronny/lily.September 23, 2019 at 10:16 am #1203098121
I had Fleabag winning series even since nominations came out.September 23, 2019 at 10:21 am #1203098136
Chernobyl dominance and wins in directing, writing and limited series.
Also, glad I switched to Jodie and was confident in Succession in writing.
I made dumb mistake with removing Julia Garner from my no.1 spot yesterday, and didn’t listen my final gut feeling that Fleabag will take directing (tho I would probably changed it if I had time, because I went to the cinema and kind of forgot.)
As always, I had terrible score, but I have terrible score pretty much everytime I play GoldDerby.September 23, 2019 at 10:27 am #1203098146
Never wavering with Julia Garner. I knew she had unforeseen actor support with that surprise SAG nomination.September 23, 2019 at 10:38 am #1203098165
Holding strong to Bandersnatch, despite the Deadwood drumbeats. But I am also glad that Black Mirror can’t compete in Television Movie next year, with none of the episodes reaching 75 minutes, as none of this season’s three episodes were as good as the three winners.September 23, 2019 at 1:04 pm #1203098410
Chernobyl in series. I thought it was pretty much the frontrunner since May and as time passed, it just became stronger in my eyes which was obviously not how the majority viewed it.
I am also proud of never buying into the Killing Eve hype for writing or for Supporting Actress. If anything was upsetting GoT in writing, then it was Succession.September 23, 2019 at 1:07 pm #1203098416
I’m pretty proud of getting wrong only directing in the limited series categories.September 23, 2019 at 1:50 pm #1203098478
Billy porter winning drama actor, And my last minute switches to fleabag for actress and seriesSeptember 23, 2019 at 2:36 pm #1203098551
I switched from When They See Us to Chernobyl for the last day but forgot to change Directing and Writing.
Also, Fleabag for Comedy Series was a finalization act.September 23, 2019 at 4:28 pm #1203098694
Top 3 predictions
1. Staying with Julia Garner for Drama Supporting Actress. I knew the Game of Thrones ladies would split the vote. Even though I would have loved to see one of them (Maisie Williams, in particular) win, four nominees from the same show with no obvious favorite among them meant they were doomed. Christie had an excellent episode and the self-submission story, Headey had the overdue & series achievement factors, and Williams had the best season and an excellent episode. Only Turner, who would’ve been my 2nd choice, was out of the running.
2. Switching to Fleabag for Comedy Series. After the Casting and Editing wins at the Creative Arts ceremony, plus all of the buzz this summer, the momentum was clearly on Fleabag’s side. I had Veep in 1st place for a while, but being shut out at the Creative Arts ceremony, plus having its nominations reduced to half of what it got in 2017, sealed its fate for me.
3. Staying with Ben Whishaw for Mini/Movie Supporting Actor. The same reasoning for Drama Supporting Actress applies here: Three nominees from one show (When They See Us) with no obvious favorite. Plus, Whishaw had a co-lead role, and this was the only place where A Very English Scandal had a shot. Even though the show didn’t make the Limited Series lineup, the fact that it got acting, directing, & writing nods indicated to me that it was probably very close (Sharp Objects barely edged it out, as it missed directing & writing).
