Once again, there certainly were surprises, but practically nobody anticipated the complete snub of “Homeland” and its two stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis since all of them won last year. That means the drama portion of the show will have a new set of three winners.

Netflix did well its first time out of the gates with nods for “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “Arrested Development.” Other new programs gaining nods were “The Blacklist,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Masters of Sex,” “Michael J. Fox Show,” “Orphan Black,” and “Ray Donovan.”

Somewhat expected were the unpredictable natures of both TV supporting categories, which combine performers from dramas, comedies, and movies/miniseries. Jacqueline Bisset (“Dancing on the Edge“) or Janet McTeer (“The White Queen“) that we did not even offer them as choices in our predictions center.

Even so, four of our Users — Buddy, lmarz, me123 and movieswithabe — scored best with an impressive 78%. Buddy breaks the tie because he earned the most game points (23,760), thus establishing himself as winner of our reader contest. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Certificate.
