I am bad at predicting things. I correctly predicted 12 out of 26 awards that were given out tonight, bringing me to an accuracy of 46%. I did successfully predict that I would be a wreck during the Robin Williams tribute. Of course, the rest of the In Memoriam reel already had me in a weak emotional state because they included Don Pardo saying “It’s Saturday Night Live!” paired with reminding me of just how many people died this past year.
The voters really chose to latch onto a show in each genre and give it as many awards as it could possibly give. My optimism led me astray in comedy and instead of the Orange is the New Black sweep that I had hoped for, most of the honors went to Modern Family again. Also, Emmy voters, why didn’t you like Fargo? Fargo was excellent. And it’s not even like your weird FX aversion kept you from recognizing it because you totally gave Allison Tolman’s award to Kathy Bates for another, worse FX show.
A breakdown of the categories accompanied by my predictions from last week follows after the jump.
