    Just reached 501 posts. The last two posts were…

    American
    Horror Story is going to dominate the acting categories again next year. Its
    cast is stunning. Sarah Paulson might move into lead with Jessica Lange and
    Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett have the best chance at a supporting nomination.
     Maybe Gabourey Sidibe? Lilly Rabe and Evan Peters got snubbed twice
    already. Taissa Farmiga’s coming back (I don’t  think she’ll get nominated
    but her and her sister getting both getting nominated would be kinda
    cool).Frances Conroy who got snubbed this year but made it in last year will be
    back. Patti Lupone and Emma Roberts (do they purposefully cast younger
    relatives of Oscar winners/nominees) will have recurring roles. There’s even
    more cast members yet to be announced!

    Mad Men isn’t subtle this year. If anything,
    it suffered from making things too literal and redundant. It was the least
    subtle season of the show, actually. I mean, take those Don flashbacks, for
    example. They were pretty much like: WE GET IT, DON HAD A SHITTY CHILDHOOD, NOW
    STOP IT WEINER. 

    It
    really wasn’t subtle. The Martin Luther king sure as hell wasn’t subtle, that
    whole Bob Benson arc sure wasn’t subtle, the merge and where it was probably
    headed sure wasn’t subtle… Really, I don’t get where you saw sublety this
    season. And I usually agree that Mad Men can be very good at subtlety when it aims
    for that, but I really don’t think they were even going for that this season.
    The whole tone was supposed to be heightened, and I think even Weiner himself
    admitted it was the intention given how they were portraying New York at the
    time. 

    Oh, and Miss Frost would pay to see Jon Hamm take a bath. HAHA

    I think Behind the Candelabra will win Best Miniseries/Movie, Directing, and Actor (Douglas). AHS: Asylum will win Supporting Actress (Paulson). Top of the Lake will win Lead Actress (Moss), Supporting Actor (Mullen), and Writing.

    I’m predicting Asylum to Supporting Actor and Actress, and maybe something in techs (haven’t thought about those, don’t really care to be honest, not here in Movie/Mini).  Top Of The Lake I’m predicting for only Actress. The rest will be a Behind The Candelabra love fest.

    I hope that the only actor who’ll win for AHS:A Is going to be Paulson. Shame that Rabe was snubbed.

    I assume, Top of the Lake is getting more than Lead Actress, preferably writing.

    AHS leading in nominations, but ended with Paulson & some of the technical awards. Everyone in supporting category seems presumable, even Quinto. I guess, if voters fall in Lana’s story he’ll be in contention too.

    Would love to see Damon’s upset.

    Mullan winning is too good to be true, it’ll probably go to Cromwell, I don’t really see Quinto winning, this is really a weak year for supporting actor in a tv movie-mini, isnt it?? last year we had such  a good line-up, I can’t stop thinking if Sherlock had aired this year and Freeman got nominated, he would have this in the bag.

    AHS is not winning the top prize with no directing or writing nominations. This one is a complete lock for Candelabra.

    Yeah, Behind the Candelabra is probably the front runner. Voters love “historical” TV movies from HBO (Temple Grandin, Recount, Grey Gardens, Game Change). Cinema Verite had the misfortune of competing against Downton Abbey and Kate Winslet.

    Your totally right…. I didn’t think about that. Candelabra is winning.

    Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake should win Writing, but it just won’t happen. If only Movie and Miniseries were still split, both Behind the Candelabra and Top of the Lake would walk away with top honors.
