Game of Thrones will rack up this year.
themidnightking - 7/10/2014, 2:29 PM
This was already posted, but this one looks better... I'm conflicted
charlie2094 - 7/10/2014, 2:34 PM
SO Breaking Bad has all of that, nothing else came close. Especially not to Cranston's performance, the most incredible one I've ever seen, especially for the final episodes. Got everything this year, Ozymandias is the most amazing episode of TV I've ever seen.
themidnightking - 7/10/2014, 2:35 PM
Jim Rash should've been nominated on that Freestyle Rap Apology alone!
weareanydaynow - 7/10/2014, 2:42 PM
Breaking Bad deserves so much in its final run, but I have a feeling that True Detective's gonna steal the show, as it did the year! I mean Luther was great, Breaking Bad was amazing, Sherlock deserves more attention, but nothing compares to what True Detective did.
McGee - 7/10/2014, 2:43 PM

With minimal effort... Marvel stomps on DC's non-animation/video game stronghold. Hahaha!
Abary - 7/10/2014, 2:44 PM
Great article :)
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/10/2014, 2:48 PM
BB will win every category it's in. Fargo will win best miniseries. Allison tolman will win best supporting actress. Best series- BB

Best miniseries- Fargo. Hands down best new show of 2014. Overwhelmingly excellent
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/10/2014, 2:49 PM
If you have not seen Fargo I HIGHLY recommend you check it out. Honestly it's breaking bad level of awesome
MercwithMouth - 7/10/2014, 2:52 PM
Ummm...posted hours ago by Pasto...

But, yours is definitely better.

Go AoS!

Outstanding Drama Series
"Game of Thrones"
* Breaking Bad's already got their much deserved emmy win for this category, last year, so..GoT's seems to be the CLEAR winner here..(by the way, which season is this show nominated for anyway..?)
as for Mad Men..i think 2015 WILL be their year.

Outstanding Comedy Series
"Orange Is the New Black" is the HIP new show everyone's been buzzing bout, and "Veep" seems to be the new show everyone seems to love.

Outstanding Miniseries
"American Horror Story: Coven" should win..but Fargo's been the latest big buzz online.

Outstanding Television Movie
"Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight" or
"The Normal Heart"

Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad" (it's his last hurrah)
Kevin Spacey, "House of Cards" (it's the most showy performance, after Cranston's Walter White)
Jon Hamm, "Mad Men" (if we're talking bout season 6..that Hershey pitch meltdown alone should seal the deal for Hamm's win)
Jeff Daniels, "The Newsroom" (overrated..and already won)
Matthew McConaughey, "True Detective" (overrated and DULL)
Woody Harrelson, "True Detective" (overrated and one dimensional)

Lead Actress in a Drama Series
For me it's really between THESE four:
Claire Danes, "Homeland"
Robin Wright, "House of Cards"
Lizzie Caplan, "Masters of Sex"
Kerry Washington, "Scandal"

Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie
Chiwetel Ejiofor, "Dancing on the Edge" (only if he's got that 12 Years a Slave luck with him)
Billy Bob Thornton, "Fargo" (a heavily buzzed bout show)
Martin Freeman, "Fargo" (a heavily buzzed bout show)
Idris Elba, "Luther" (the show's been mentioned a lot..and he MIGHT just get it this year)
Mark Ruffalo, "The Normal Heart" (it's a gay role in an disease movie..he's got a shot, as well)

Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie
Jessica Lange, "American Horror Story: Coven" (sure, Paulson's great too in this, but Ms Lange..she's in a league of her own, this third season)

Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Louis CK, "Louie" (enuff with the overrated Parsons, Louis MUST get it this time round)

Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
it's between these three:
Edie Falco, "Nurse Jackie"
Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation"
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep"
...personally, i'd want Falco to win.

Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Aaron Paul, "Breaking Bad"
(i think Aaron should get a win for his final season as Jesse, Dinklage MUST get his next year for his performance in season 4 of GoT..his trial speech and scenes with his dad, Tywin, and his mistress, Shae..all awards caliber performances)

Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Christina Hendricks might be underrated a lot, but..honestly, i think this category belongs to either Anna Gunn, "Breaking Bad" OR Lena Headey, "Game of Thrones". period.

Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie
Colin Hanks, "Fargo" (he should have his dad's awards-winning gene)
Alfred Molina, "The Normal Heart" (an role in an 'important' movie)
Jim Parsons, "The Normal Heart" (an role in an 'important' movie)
Joe Mantello, "The Normal Heart" (an role in an 'important' movie)
Matt Bomer, "The Normal Heart" (an role in an 'important' movie)
Martin Freeman, "Sherlock" (a win would be a compensation if he were to lose his nom for Fargo)

Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie
Frances Conroy, "American Horror Story: Coven" (i think that whole funky look alone should get her a win)

Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Adam Driver, "Girls" (his star's been rising, ever since that star wars casting)
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, "Modern Family" (a good chance)
Ty Burrell, "Modern Family" (another good chance)

Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
it's the battle of the MOMS..so, it's between Julie Bowen, "Modern Family" and Allison Janney, "Mom"

Outstanding Variety Series
"Saturday Night Live"

Outstanding Reality Competition Program
"So You Think You Can Dance" (PERSONAL fave)
Cles - 7/10/2014, 2:58 PM
Glad to see Kate Mulgrew get nominated. She kills it as Red. I almost think Breaking Bad is a sure thing for best drama, ala The Return of the King. Breaking Bad is one of my all time favorite shows, but it has some pretty stiff competition in all categories.
charlie2094 - 7/10/2014, 3:00 PM
Hope we get to a stage where we see comic book films and shows nominated for main awards, other than just "visual effects". Dark Knight is closest we've gotten yet
SuperCat - 7/10/2014, 3:01 PM
"Game of Thrones" for the win!
MrCBM56 - 7/10/2014, 3:02 PM
Don't worry @Nail, I got this.

Pasto article was deleted because he is a plagiarizing little twit. Or something like that.
gaikinger - 7/10/2014, 3:06 PM
Surprised Fargo isnt in there....it was really good
gaikinger - 7/10/2014, 3:07 PM
....oh....it is.
MsDarkPhoenix - 7/10/2014, 3:10 PM
I'm still not nominated for anything??

[frick] it, I'll wait for the Oscars then...
AsgardianHobo - 7/10/2014, 3:14 PM
AoS! Nice!

And GoT deserves everything it gets
TheAmericanPatriot - 7/10/2014, 3:16 PM
Lol! Where's every DC Commie Fanboys favorite show Arrow? This is what happens when your shows are on the CW! LMAO!
SpiderFraud - 7/10/2014, 3:16 PM
True Detective will rack up sh*t ton of awards. I'm rooting for Breaking Bad, though.

This years nominees are pretty damn good.

alecwright - 7/10/2014, 3:24 PM
@TheAmericanPatriot. AoS only got a nod for best VISUAL FX, you dweeb. Completely meaningless.
marvel72 - 7/10/2014, 3:33 PM
true detective should win everything its nominated for,the best new show from the past year.
OnePunchBaldy - 7/10/2014, 3:34 PM
Kinda bummed that Arrow wasn't nominated but there's really no category it qualifies for haha but man the competition is real this year.
McGee - 7/10/2014, 3:39 PM
Pasto stole my virginity Phoenix Suns mug....he's not even from Arizona!
Alfredo27 - 7/10/2014, 3:44 PM
If Breaking Bad loses at anything its bullshit, Where the fruck is Vikings that show is the shit.
McGee - 7/10/2014, 3:52 PM

Where were YOU when The Dark Knight was nominated and WON an Oscar?

SpideyQuad - 7/10/2014, 3:56 PM
LMFAO at DC Arrow trolls!

Let's see how they "spin" this :D
SpideyQuad - 7/10/2014, 4:01 PM
Gee McGee, in what... Lighting?

It certainly wasn't "Best Picture"

Wasn't it more of a sympathy nod towards "what's his name"
fettastic - 7/10/2014, 4:19 PM
Go Louis CK!
McGee - 7/10/2014, 4:26 PM

Oh Spidey...You're like that guy who claims Obama only won the Presidency in 08 because he was black, ignoring that...

1. He still won.

2. The guy you're telling this to only brought up Obama's win to smack hubris with mock hubris and doesn't really care or have a dog in this fight.
SpideyQuad - 7/10/2014, 4:31 PM
Dude I'm one of Obama's biggest fans! So I guess that backfired. Funny, and I took you as a Republican with a sense a humor. Well at least you won't call me a liberal :-)
McGee - 7/10/2014, 4:40 PM

MsDarkPhoenix - 7/10/2014, 4:51 PM
I'm MsDarkPhoenix

I have nothing important to say.

I just wanted to remind you who I am.

In case you forgot it.

I'm MsDarkPhoenix
McGee - 7/10/2014, 4:54 PM

BlackBolt72 - 7/10/2014, 5:04 PM
I know GOT would do well but I think The Normal Heart will get a few. Not the kind of movie I would normally watch but was to lazy to change the channel and even though the content was not in my desired watching It was a good movie. Convincing roles.
MakluIV - 7/10/2014, 5:08 PM
AoS should win this one. I keep reminding myself, the bus is not real.
MsDarkPhoenix - 7/10/2014, 5:10 PM
Lol :P

Ave moi

bronzetiger01 - 7/10/2014, 5:35 PM
Person of Interest not even considered? :(
Dandy - 7/10/2014, 6:04 PM
How the hell is Fargo, one of the best shows of the year, NOT up for outstanding drama. Miniseries?!!! It has more episodes than True Detective which was nominated as a series!

By the way True Detective was also awesome.
