So, over the past two weeks, I made Emmy predictions in 10 of the major categories. I didn't really think about how well I expected to do, but in retrospect, averaging 83% (5 out of 6) would have been nice, and below 67% (4 out of 6) would have felt lousy.

Here are the results (mistakes in bold):

Drama: 5 for 6
One man's best guesses: "The Americans,"
"Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," "House of Cards."
Missed on: I took a gamble leaving "Mad Men" off the list and paid for it.

Comedy: 6 for 6
One man's best guesses: "30 Rock," "The Big Bang Theory," "Girls," "Louie," "Modern Family," "Veep."
Missed on: None. Easy-peasy lemon-squeezy.

Drama actor: 5 for 6
One man's best guesses: Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Jeff Daniels, Damian Lewis, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey.
Missed on: Hugh Bonneville. The Emmys didn't exactly abandon "Boardwalk Empire" (10 nominations), but I thought their love for Buscemi would be stronger than it was for bonny Bonneville.

Drama actress: 4 for 6 (seven nominated)
One man's best guesses: Claire Danes, Julianna Margulies, Tatiana Maslany, Elisabeth Moss, Kerry Washington, Robin Wright.
Missed on: Connie Britton, Michelle Dockery and Vera Farmiga. I thought Washington would take too much of the soapy broadcast vote to permit Britton's nominations, that Dockery's tame plotline would undermine her, and that the power of Margulies and a showstopper performance by Maslany would sideline Farmiga. I don't believe any single Emmy candidate was more deserving this year than Maslany.

Comedy actor: 4 for 6
One man's best guesses: Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Don Cheadle, Jon Cryer, Jake Johnson, Jim Parsons.
Missed on: Jason Bateman, Matt LeBlanc. I didn't think Bateman's return on "Arrested" would resonate as much as it did, and I just never hear anyone talk about "Episodes." Turns out, Cryer's days as an Emmy favorite have gone on sabbatical, and Johnson's move into the "New Girl" male spotlight wasn't enough.

Comedy actress: 5 for 6
One man's best guesses: Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler.
