Names out of a hat! Emmy 2014 predictions for the Miniseries and Movie Categories

Yesterday I decided I’d get into the Emmy predictions game what with everything that’s going on. I’m going to do actual predictions for the drama and comedy categories, but since I haven’t seen anything in the miniseries or movie categories, I thought it would be fun to pull names out of a hat. And then on Tuesday (which is when the Emmys air in Australia), we can see how my serious predictions went compared to me pulling things out of a hat. Critics seem to be predicting that the big winners for these categories will be Fargo and The Normal Heart, although Sherlock: His Last Vow did win a few awards at the Creative Arts Awards last weekend. Here are my scientific predictions as to who these awards will go to. Special thanks to my brother for holding up the hat, as well as anyone who actually reads this for indulging my silliness.
