Who actually won the Emmy Awards? (How accurate were our predictions?)

Last week, we did an article called “Biased 2015 Emmy Award Winner Predictions” (check it out here). It was uninformed, but as far as we’re concerned, we’re always right. Still, let’s compare the actual award winners against our predictions.

COMEDY

Outstanding Comedy Series

Kai’s Prediction: Modern Family
Tyus’ Prediction: Modern Family

Winner: Veep

We’ve never watched Veep, so it may be absolutely amazing. However, we have watched Modern Family, and that one is definitely amazing. So who knows what they were thinking.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

Kai’s Prediction: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Tyus’ Prediction: Amy Schumer
Winner: Julia Louis-Dreyfus

So, Kai was right (and correctly – I’m the one who’s writing this), however Amy Schumer is also very good, and could have won the award. Nonetheless, one to us!

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

Kai’s Prediction: Matt LeBlanc
Tyus’ Prediction: Jeffrey Tambor
Winner: Jeffrey Tambor

Apparently Jeffrey Tambor won a Golden Globe for his role in the same TV show, so that must be a good thing. One more point!

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

Kai’s Prediction: Julie Bowen
Tyus’ Prediction: Allison Janney
Winner: Allsion Janney

Mom is spelt wrong for Kai, so he’s not sure about that. Still, one more point!

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Kai’s Prediction: Ty Burrell
Tyus’ Prediction: Ty Burrell
Winner: Tony Hale

Veep is apparently a very popular show. Another award to them, but no point for us.

Drama

Outstanding Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Mad Men
Tyus’ Prediction: Mad Men
Winner: Game Of Thrones

I have never read any bad reviews of Game Of Thrones, so I guess it could win. Then again, I have never read any bad reviews about Mad Men either, so that could, and should have won. However, it didn’t (much to the distaste of my mother).

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Taraji P. Henson
Tyus’ Prediction: Viola Davis
Winner: Viola Davis

…good, I guess. Another point for us.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Jon Hamm
Tyus’ Prediction: Jon Hamm
Winner: Jon Hamm

My mother was very happy with me when I chose Jon Hamm, and especially happy with the awards when he won. ANOTHER POINT.

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Joanne Froggatt
Tyus’ Prediction: Joanne Froggatt
Winner: Uzo Aduba

THE SELECTORS DON’T PICK THE WINNERS BY THE HILARITY OF THEIR NAMES?! SCANDAL!

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Jonathan Banks
Tyus’ Prediction: Alan Cumming
Winner: Peter Dinklage

This time they pick the winner by the hilarity of their name. That’s scandalous.

Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Diana Rigg
Tyus’ Prediction: Margo Martindale
Winner: Margo Martindale

I’ve ran out of jokes. Another point.

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

Kai’s Prediction: Alan Alda
Tyus’ Prediction: F. Murray Abraham
Winner: Bradley Whitford

We didn’t end on a high note. Last and definitely least. No points.
That’s all. We guessed six out of twelve, which is pretty good considering a lot of our predictions were biased or uninformed.
