In a collaboration between Gold Derby—recently acquired by Deadline’s owner PMC—and AwardsLine, we are excited to share GD‘s odds rankings of six major Emmy categories: Best Comedy Series, Comedy Actor, Comedy Actress; Best Drama Series, Drama Actor and Drama Actress. These rankings are perfect companion pieces to Awards Columnist Pete Hammond’s Emmy handicaps, which you can read here. There should be no losing your office or Emmy viewing party poll with such pedigreed awards intel.
Here’s GD founder Tom O’Neil’s take on the rankings:
Tomorrow’s Emmys will be a milestone event for Mad Men according to several experts making predictions at Gold Derby. They give Jon Hamm 2-to-13 odds to win his first Emmy after 10 past losses (7 for Mad Men, 3 for 30 Rock). Eleven out of 18 experts predict Mad Men will also win Best Drama Series (4-to-5 odds), which would set a new record. Currently, the series is tied with three others for most wins with four—Hill Street Blues, The West Wing and L.A. Law.
See how the experts rank contenders side-by-side in each category here.
