Gold Derby - GoldDerby: Oscars Predictions

Watch our slugfest video below with editors Marcus James Dixon, Daniel Montgomery, Rob Licuria and Ralph Galvan, including what shows will be helped (or hurt) by the "Orange" category switch. We also ruminate over the fact that "Glee," "Jane the Virgin" and "Shameless" were all allowed to stay put in comedy, which essentially means the Emmys changed their rule book this year simply to get "Orange" out of the comedy fields.


"If you go into 'Survivor' and you think that you're not gonna rub heads or you expect not to ... you're not there to play hard," says "Survivor" castoff Lindsey Cascaddan to Gold Derby about her elimination. "Rodney Lavoie and I are both out for blood. We want to win. [But] I think it was the personal things -- the attacks at women, maybe the things that were too vulgar to even be aired -- that got under my skin."

"My family was proud about the fact that I looked so god damned hot," jokes "Survivor" castoff Max Dawson to Gold Derby about his penchant for walking around naked. "My mother is the biggest 'Survivor' fan of all time. She did not mind at all so long as it didn't hurt my game. And I don't think it did hurt my game. I never got any indication from my fellow tribe members or from the edit that my nakedness had anything to do with my downfall."

"There's a tremendous amount that happens on the show that you don't get to see," says "Survivor: Worlds Apart" castoff Vince Sly during our Q&A podcast. "My perception is that there's no reason for Will to have gone with any other decision than us against the Barbie Bots. I did everything I possibly could to set that up, including the reason why they chose to split their votes ... which was I faked an Idol."

"You can't really sum up how you feel after something like that happens," says "Survivor: Worlds Apart" castoff So Kim during our Q&A following her elimination. "Especially given the circumstances and everything that I feel like I've gone through to get there. It's heartbreak. It's opportunity lost. It's a what-if, could-have, should-have, would-have."
