Lisa Christine Svenson is a non-viewer (of soaps and virtually all television). She is a writer and student who lives with her child, her grandmother (who she cares for), and a variety of pets (who have been known to be somewhat helpful in assisting her with her selections, although her older cat generally refuses to cooperate entirely). As in most years, she has no idea who to vote for, and risks brain damage to find interesting, and ideally (but rarely) accurate, ways of making predictions. These methods are described below, after her prediction in each category.
Based on my previous Emmy prediction experience, I have opted to read the information provided (the briefest summary), and use my own intuition, or gut feelings, or whatever you want to call it (basically, it is what I have that isn't knowledge of the subject), and make my best predictions. My pets, while they have been willing, have yet to predict accurately. While tossing bits of paper down the stairs might be entertaining, and might actually simulate some sort of experiment, in truth (based on previous years' experience), it is a very inaccurate indicator of who the Emmy winners might be. It is noteworthy, however, that the well-informed experts aren't always much better at this predicting than I am!
While I am the "person on the street" opinion for this, I confess to making the predictions from the comfort of my own home (and one of my dogs is here to consult with me, should I reach a rough patch in the decision-making process).
