The award season is underway and precursors are flooding in. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s chosen nominations will be announced on Thursday December 11th.

On the film side of things we expect “Boyhood” and “Birdman” to get a lot of attention. “The Imitation Game,” “Selma,” “Gone Girl,” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” should make some appearances too.

On the television side of things “True Detective,” “House of Cards,” and “Modern Family” should all easily show up. “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Downton Abbey,” “Fargo, ” “Orange is the New Black,” and “The Big Bang Theory” are all strong possibilities in multiple categories as well.

You wouldn’t think it, but there is a significant different in the mind of an Academy voter and a Hollywood Foreign Press voter.  To end an excellent festival, “The Imitation Game” went home with the TIFF Audience Award. One of the runner-up films was “St. Vincent” another Weinstein film that should farewell in the comedy categories at the Globes.

We went ahead and updated everything, including television categories as we start seeking into a new Fall season for shows.

Emmys: Best Lead Actress – TV Movie or Mini-Series

04_wide-04bad0441c6565d9d3db6ae68a6f2b996d2ea6dfBest Lead Actress – TV Movie or Mini-Series

Cicely Tyson, The Trip to Bountiful
Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor
Minnie Driver, Return to Zero
Kristen Wiig, The Spoils of Babylon
Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven
Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story: Coven

Last Update: 07/12/14

“American Horror Story: Coven” probably had the biggest audience out of all of these. In fact I guarantee it. Unfortunately it’s doubtful, even with a plethora of nominations, that “American Horror Story” wins any awards. The “mini-series” had a weaker season with lower critical praise. So I’m thinking they’ll give it to a veteran in Cicely Tyson. Still, it’s anyone’s game with Lange, Driver, Carter, and Wiig in the mix as well, depending on how the voters want to go.

Emmys: Best TV Movie

The Normal Heart
Sherlock: His Last Vow

Last Update: 07/12/14

“The Normal Heart” is pretty far ahead here. “Sherlock” and “Trip to Bountiful” might surprise us, but it is very unlikely.
