Actually, I got 44 of 61 nominees in the categories I predicted, which is a respectable 72 percent. I got all six of the Lead Actor Comedy nominees and six of seven Lead Actress Comedy nominees (and I shouldn't be responsible for not anticipating a tie.
As I guessed last night, one of my mistakes was underestimating the chances for "Downton Abbey." Joanne Froggat was, I believe, the only nominee who I didn't even place in my "Some other notable candidates" slide. Big ooops there. I also assumed xenophobia would give Elizabeth McGovern the advantage over the far more deserving Michelle Dockery, so... Yay!
A lot of the nominees that I missed -- folks like Jared Harris, Kathryn Joosten and Hugh Bonneville -- were relatively high up among contenders, but I know why I didn't predict them.
Anyway... I think that makes me both a Winner and a Loser on Emmy Nomination Morning.
