    I’m curious to see where they place Fargo, Orange Is the New Black, Shameless, and True Detective. Also, how those shows do overall with nominations.

    Are they adding any new categories this year? They don’t have a cast award yet like the film version.

    I expect Extant, Flash, and Gotham to make the CCTA Most Exciting New Series list.

    I expect an increase in nominations for TGW, Breaking Bad and The Americans, and probably Mad Men too. I can surely see many nominations for OITNB and Fargo, and Masters Of Sex too. As for True Detective I think if compared to Fargo, the latter has greater critical affair though the former is more emmy friendly, so I see it performing as HoC did last year. I can see Brooklyn Nine Nine do well, as well nominations for The Mindy Project, Mom and Sillicon Valley (in supporting actor), and a Veep bump too. I see a drop in nominations for New Girl, Homeland, Parks and Recreation and TBBT.

    How many nominees per category?
    If it’s only five, is gonna be fun to see which one is left out of the drama.

    They do 6 per category, but unlike the Emmy’s are capable of letting go of the unworthy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3rd_Critics%27_Choice_Television_Awards

    I think they will place those shows in the same fields as the Emmys in an effort to remain relevant and be able to say “see? we predicted correctly”. So “True Detective” will be in drama, “Orange Is the New Black” in comedy and “Fargo” in miniseries/ tv movie.

    However, I expect them to keep “Shameless” in the drama field, since they’ve already nominated William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum.

    Of course, they’re not above doing crazy things like nominating Sarah Paulson and Sienna Miller in supporting actress last year.

    Those are good predictions for New Series. The list will probably include “The Strain” and “Red Band Society”.

    They should start doing writing and directing categories.

    Oh, I see. Then I’m pretty sure the six will be BB, TD, HoC, GoT, MM and TGW.
    Unless they kick HoC to the curb and put Hannibal there, that would be awesome.

    Why Mad Men? They already dropped it last year. Why would they bring it back?

    Last year’s nominees:

    The Americans (FX)
    * Breaking Bad (AMC)
    Downton Abbey (PBS)
    * Game of Thrones (HBO)
    The Good Wife (CBS)
    Homeland (Showtime)

    Downton Abbey and Homeland will be dropped. True Detective and probably Masters of Sex will replace them.

    For the most part, the Critics’ Choice brand exists to predict the bigger awards.  They seem to have far more of a personality on the television side, but I expect them to adhere to Emmy categorization for the most part.

    I think newer shows like “The Americans” and “Masters of Sex” have a better chance than “Mad Men” which has already been dropped and is airing a truncated season.

    “House of Cards” was left out last year despite huge hype and nominations for Kevin Spacey and Corey Stoll, so I think that’s not a sure bet either.

    Critics have been raving about Season 7 thus far.
    My guess would be that they have more of a clean slate mindset coming into each year of nominations than the Emmys.

    What about the supporting categories in comedy? Last year none of the 12 nominees went on to receive an Emmy nomination (and only Max Greenfield is an Emmy nominee). I liked their willingness to spotlight underappreciated performers, but some of their choices were strange. They went to a lot of trouble to leave Ty Burrell out and they managed to nominate two actresses from “The Big Bang Theory” without including Mayim Bialik.

    This year, I think they will nominate at least one Emmy nominee. Allison Janney has to make it, right?

    Should be exciting to see their nominees.

    FYC: Rick & Morty for Animated Series. Make it so!
