OK, I was behaving quite cheekily when I promised 100% accuracy with my Emmy nominations predictions, but I did score quite well: 79%. Of my 101 predix, 80 proved to be correct. There turned out to be two more nominations in these categories, thanks to accountants granting an extra slot in squeaker contests. Below is the breakdown. See the list of nominees here.
