    The new nomination procedure that includes the ability to vote for an unlimited number of candidates on your ballot has been casually mentioned but not discussed in depth and I think deserves its own forum topic. I am really struggling to reconcile how this might affect the nominations. Unfortunately, I feel that it will tend to favor more populist choices over passionate underdogs. Has anyone developed a theory as to how this play out? Will it even have any effect at all? Discuss.

    I haven’t yet developed a proper idea of what this might mean (and probably never really will) but what I do know is that people who are hoping for outsiders from little watched shows to scrape in are going to be very disappointed on nomination morning.

    I’m not wild about this system at all.  On my ballot for drama writing, I deliberately kept it at 5 choices.  These were 5 drama scripts about which I felt strongly, and I knew that if I threw in 10 more titles for the heck of it, my passion votes would suddenly have no value.

    Was this ever publicly announced by the Academy?

    Contenders I’m now predicting since this update:

    -Modern Family
    -Mayim Bialik
    -Andre Braugher
    -Laura Dern (such a shame I’ve taken out Sally Phillips who I thought had a real shot before)
    -House of Cards
    -Viola Davis
    -Vanessa Kirby
    -Cicely Tyson
    -American Horror Story: Roanoke
    -Felicity Huffman

    Contenders I’m very close to predicting:

    -Jim Parsons
    -Anthony Hopkins
    -Gillian Anderson
    -Timothy Hutton

    The editors are split on whether this means A) more mediocre nominees that have broad support, or B) more niche nominees that have passionate support. I guess we’ll see when the noms come out!

    I gunk this means more namecheck she and less passion. The passion votes do better with fewer because they are not diluted by extra spots. Extra spots means filler choices. Voters might now vote for there favorites as well as anything else they watch. Or anybody else they know. This probably means namecheck like Hank Azaria for Brockmire and Margo Matendal for The Americans. I could easily see The Big Bang Theory come back. I think this helps shows like the Walking Dead, 13 Reasons Why, and this is Us and hurts stuff like Louie Anderson.

    Hipefully all voters will now respond like Helmetz and only fill out the best. In an ideal world, people will see there isn’t a required amount and might do less. For example, if they were supposed to chose 5 and they don’t have 5 choices, maybe instead of resulting in filler name checks they will only vote for 3. Ideally this helps.

    sadly, I don’t think this will help obscure, niche performances like Issa Rae, Aisha Hinds, and Phoebe Waller Bridge,

    This is my thinking as well. Such a shame. I was really starting to believe Waller-Bridge would make it after TCA.

    I really don’t like this new rule, and I agree, shows with passion votes will likely not make it over more popular shows.

    This means more name checking. So Modern Family, Viola Davis, House Of Cards, Uzo Aduba, maybe Taraji have “good” chances. Maybe this is good for American Crime? Either way I’m not too crazy about it. I pray that this doesn’t include The Big Bang Theory.

    Now that I think about it, this system might have one VERY IMPORTANT bennifit. With unlimited spots, voters might have leftover votes. Literally. Since they can vote for as many as they want, and they might add Leftovers to the mix out of buzz. It happens all the time when the voters probably don’t watch the shows but nominate it because the buzz is to loud. With unlimited spots, that makes it even easier.

    Also, even though I think we’ll have plenty of bad nominees, I think this will result in a lot of 2% ties and we will see 8 nominees in a lot of categories.

    I also started wondering, with unlimited votes, that spreads out the namecheck, I wonder if passion votes can prevail. If voters can vote as much as they want Willy nilly, the votes spread equally to major shows and big names. But maybe those passion groups are strategic and that causes those passion votes to pull through. I like this theory more than the other.

    I honestly have no idea. So I’m either expecting the best nominees ever or the worst nominees ever.
