Marcus James Dixon
Marcus James Dixon is a Senior Editor, reality TV enthusiast and an admitted Emmy snob who will occasionally debase himself to cover the Oscars at Gold Derby. He'll never forgive Emmy voters for not picking "The X-Files" as Best Drama Series (at least Gillian Anderson won Best Drama Actress) or Oscar voters for not even nominating "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" as Best Picture. He enjoys writing about reality TV, especially "Survivor" and "Big Brother," but he doesn’t think they deserve to be forgiven for anything – and that's okay.

Carol Burnett better not be in any more episodes. I desperately want “Better Call Saul” to win an Emmy! Don’t mess this up.ReplyMay 31, 2022 at 12:18 pm #1204968594
I binged all of “Severance” at once so I can’t remember specific episodes. What’s the best one for me to vote for? 🤔ReplyMay 3, 2022 at 9:18 pm #1204941390
I always liked Garner on the show, but felt her first two Emmy wins were undeserved. This time around, I’m fully on #TeamJulia. Heck, give her TWO Emmys for this season. She’s that good!ReplyJanuary 27, 2022 at 11:47 am #1204754586
DISCLAIMER: The Goldderby Awards do NOT reflect GD users predictions or state of the race. Like wow. Personal choices I guess but they could’ve at least made it a bit close… Those are GD Editor picks HUGE disclaimer there. I’m surprise No Way Home wasn’t included Lol the forums are better. Mess.

Anyone else feel like they should have been showing these lip sync rudemptions week to week? Grouping them all together in one episode lost any sense of anticipation.ReplyJuly 12, 2021 at 11:30 am #1204340200
