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.
Outstanding Comedy Series
Kai’s Prediction: Modern Family
Tyus’ Prediction: Modern Family
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.
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.
