Art Directors Guild Awards 2014

Art Directors Guild Awards 2014

This year's Oscar winner for Best Production Design is all but certain to be found among the nominees announced January 5 for the 19th annual Art Directors Guild Awards. Over the first 18 years of these kudos, the eventual Oscar champ has always numbered among the ADG nominees in the various categories. The prizes will be handed out at the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 31. Period Film nominees are: "The Grand Budapest Hotel" "The Imitation Game" "Inherent Vice" "The Theory of Everything"  "Unbroken" Fantasy Film nominees are: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" "Guardians of the Galaxy" "Interstellar" "Into the Woods" Contemporary Film nominees are: "American Sniper" "Birdman" "Foxcatcher" "Gone Girl" "Nightcrawler"  The biggest snub by the ADG was "Mr. Turner," which sits in sixth on our chart of Oscar contenders. Also absent are "Maleficent" (#8), “Exodus: Gods and Kings" (#9) and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” (#10).  "Into the Woods" leads our predictions for Best Production Design at the Oscars. Also in our top five are two period picture ADG nominees -- "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "The Imitation Game" -- as well as another fantasy film, "Interstellar," and the contemporary contender "Birdman."  Last year, all five Oscar nominees first contended at the ADG Awards. Eventual Oscar champ "The Great Gatsby" won Best Period Film with the ADG over among others, Oscar rivals "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle." "Gravity" won Best Fantasy Film and "Her" won Best Contemporary Film.  Likewise, in 2012, all five Oscar nominees were cited first by the ADG. "Anna Karenina" won Best Period Film over "Les Miserables" and "Lincoln," but it was "Lincoln" that won Oscar. "Life of Pi" won Best Fantasy Film against the fifth Oscar nominee, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." In 2011, three of the five Oscar nominees first contended at the ADG Awards. "Hugo" won Best Period Film over, among others, "The Artist," before taking home the Oscar while "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" won Best Fantasy Film. The other Oscar nominees were "Midnight in Paris" and "War Horse." In 2010, all five Oscar nominees were cited by the ADG Awards: "The King's Speech" took Best Period Film while "Inception" edged out eventual Oscar champ "Alice in Wonderland" as Best Fantasy Film. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" contended in fantasy while "True Grit" was nominated in period. The Contemporary winner was "Black Swan." In 2009, one of the ADG fantasy film nominees -- "Avatar" -- won the Oscar while just one of the ADG period picture picks -- "Sherlock Holmes" -- also contended at the Academy Awards. Three films snubbed by the ADG -- "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," "Nine" and "The Young Victoria" -- filled out the Oscar roster. The 2008 Oscar nominees included only two of the five ADG choices for period production design -- "Changeling" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" -- and just one of the five fantasy nominees -- "The Dark Knight." "Benjamin Button" won with both groups. In 2007, the Oscar slate included four of the ADG period nominees and one from the fantasy front. "Sweeney Todd" won the Oscar while "There Will Be Blood" took the ADG period prize.

Producers Guild Awards 2014

Producers Guild Awards 2014

The Producers Guild of America announced its nominees for Best Picture on January 5: "American Sniper," "Birdman," "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Gone Girl," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Nightcrawler," "The Theory of Everything," and "Whiplash." These mirror our forecast for the Best Picture lineup at the Oscars with two glaring exceptions:  the PGA snubbed third-ranked "Selma" and "Unbroken" (#8 on our chart) in favor of "American Sniper" (#13) and "Nightcrawler" (#14). Among the other films overlooked by the guild were two big box office hits: "Interstellar" and "Into the Woods." That "Selma" and "Interstellar" were slighted could be down to voters not getting screeners from Paramount due to production delays.   The guild and Oscars have agreed on the last seven Best Pictures in a row (though there was an unprecedented tie here last year between eventual Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity".) Key to the import of this precursor prize is that it picks a winner using the same kind of counting as the Oscars -- the preferential ballot. The PGA also revealed the five nominees for Best Animated Feature: "Big Hero 6," "The Book of Life," "The Boxtrolls," "How to Train Your Dragon 2" and "The Lego Movie." This is our predicted line-up of potential Oscar nominees.  And while most of the TV nominees were announced on Dec. 3, the PGA unveiled the contenders for TV Movie/Miniseries on Monday:  "American Horror Story: Freak Show," "Fargo," "The Normal Heart," "The Roosevelts: An Intimate History" and "Sherlock."  Winners will be revealed during a Jan. 24 ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. When the Oscars expanded to 10 nominees in 2009, the Producers Guild of American followed suit. And while the academy shifted to a sliding scale four years ago, the PGA stuck with 10 contenders. That has helped it maintain a staggering success rate at predicting the eventual Oscars roster with it previewing 40 of the 47 (i.e., 85%) of the Best Picture nominees. Last year, eight of the PGA nominees made the cut with academy: eventual Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave," as well as "Gravity" (which had tied with it at the PGA), "American Hustle," "Captain Phillips,"  "Dallas Buyers Club" "Her," "Nebraska," and "The Wolf of Wall Street." The other two PGA contenders -- "Blue Jasmine" and "Saving Mr. Banks" -- were snubbed by the academy. Rather, Brit hit "Philomena" was the ninth Oscar nominee.  In 2012, eight PGA nominees also reaped bids for the top Academy Award -- "Argo," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln," "Les Miserables," "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Zero Dark Thirty." Rounding out the roster at the PGA were "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Skyfall." The guild snubbed the French-language "Amour," which netted a Best Picture nod from the academy. "Argo" prevailed with the PGA before taking home the Oscar.  In 2011, the PGA predicted seven of the eventual nine Best Picture contenders, including "The Artist" which won with both groups. The PGA filled out their slate with popular pictures "Bridesmaids," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Ides of March" while the Oscars went with "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and "The Tree of Life." In 2010, the PGA foresaw nine of the eventual 10 Best Picture Oscar nominees. The guild went for "The Town" while the academy opted for "Winter's Bone" for the tenth slot. Both groups chose "The King's Speech" as the Best Picture of the year.  And in 2009, the Oscars concurred with the PGA on eight of the 10 contenders. PGA nominated "Invictus" and "Star Trek" over Oscar choices "The Blind Side" and "A Serious Man." Both groups picked as best pic "The Hurt Locker."

Gold Derby Film Awards Nominations 2014

The Gold Derby Film Awards are decided by users of this website like YOU. Never mind what those voters for other awards say is the best film or performance of the year. Nobody knows the truth better than Gold Derby readers, who are such award nuts that they insist upon bestowing their own kudos. They were launched in 2002 when winners included "Chicago," Julianne Moore ("Far From Heaven"), Daniel Day-Lewis ("Gangs of New York"), Meryl Streep ("Adaptation"), and Chris Cooper ("Adaptation"). The awards have continued annually for the past decade, with last year's winners including "12 Years a Slave," Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"), and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"). For a complete list of all past winners and nominees, click this page in our forums. If you're already registered at Gold Derby, cast your ballot by going to your home page and clicking on Vote Gold Derby Awards in the left-hand column under Predictions. If you are not registered, do so for free here. You can also log in with your Facebook account.  Vote for your favorites for Best Picture, all the acting categories, many technical categories (like film editing, cinematography, original score, production design, and more). We even ask your opinions on the top ensemble and best breakthrough performance of 2014. Nominations in 22 categories will be announced on February 2. You can then vote on the final winners, with the ultimate results announced just before the Oscars on Thursday, February 19.

DGA Awards

Directors Guild Awards Nominations 2014

Directors Guild Awards Nominations 2014

Four of last year's five Directors Guild of America Awards contenders -- Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity"), Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave"), David O. Russell ("American Hustle"), and Martin Scorsese ("The Wolf of Wall Street") -- also reaped Oscar bids. The fifth -- Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips") -- was replaced in the Oscar lineup by Alexander Payne ("Nebraska"). Cuaron would go on to win with the DGA and at the Academy Awards. The year before, only two of the DGA nominees --  Ang Lee (“Life of Pi”) and Steven Spielberg (“Lincoln”) -- also reaped Oscar bids. The other three DGA nominees -- Ben Affleck (“Argo”), Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”) and Tom Hooper (“Les Miserables”) -- were snubbed by the Oscars in favor of Michael Haneke (“Amour”), David O. Russell (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Benh Zeitlin ("Beasts of the Southern Wild). Lee won the Oscar race. That disconnect between the DGA and Oscars was unprecedented. Affleck won over the DGA voters while his film, "Argo," became the third to take Best Picture at the Oscars without a corresponding Best Director nomination. The others: "Grand Hotel" (1931/32) and “Driving Miss Daisy” (1989). Affleck was the seventh DGA champ who did not go on to repeat at the Academy Awards, following in the path of these Oscar also-rans: 1968: DGA to Anthony Harvey (“The Lion in Winter”), Oscar to Carol Reed (“Oliver!”) 1972: DGA to Francis Ford Coppola (“The Godfather”), Oscar to Bob Fosse (“Cabaret”) 1985: DGA to Steven Spielberg (“The Color Purple”), Oscar to Sydney Pollack (“Out of Africa”) 1995: DGA to Ron Howard (“Apollo 13”), Oscar to Mel Gibson (“Braveheart”) 2000: DGA to Ang Lee (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), Oscar to Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic”) 2002: DGA to Rob Marshall (“Chicago”), Oscar to Roman Polanski (“The Pianist”)

Producers Guild Awards Nominations 2014

Something unprecedented happened at the Producers Guild Awards last year. There was a tie for the first time in the top category of Best Picture with both "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity" winning. The PGA and Oscars have agreed on 18 of the most recent 24 Best Picture champs, including the last seven in a row (discounting "Gravity" with its tie). Key to the import of this precursor prize is that it picks a winner using the same kind of counting as the Oscars -- the preferential ballot. Those past seven double champs are: "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008), "The Hurt Locker" (2009), "The King's Speech" (2010), "The Artist" (2011), "Argo" (2012), and "12 Years a Slave" (2013).

Critics Choice Awards 2014

Critics Choice Awards 2014

After topping the nominations at the SAG Awards and Golden Globes, "Birdman" continues its skyward trajectory by earning the most bids at the Critics Choice Movie Awards. Based on our predictions in 17 categories, we were expecting 10 nominations for the offbeat comedy, but it ended up with 13. The "Birdman" bids include Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), Best Actor (Michael Keaton), Best Supporting Actor (Edward Norton), Best Supporting Actress (Emma Stone), Best Original Screenplay, and Best Acting Ensemble. It also received citations below the line for Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Art Direction, and Best Score. Howeve, while its score, composed by Antonio Sanchez was also nominated at the Golden Globes, it was disqualified from Oscar contention. The big surprise is the 11 nominations for "The Grand Budapest Hotel," far more than expected, including Best Picture, Best Director (Wes Anderson), and Best Actor (Ralph Fiennes). This could help Fiennes steal some Oscar momentum from Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), who was snubbed despite six slots in this category. "Boyhood" picked up eight nominations. It was recognized in the seven categories we were expecting: Best Picture, Best Director (Richard Linklater), Best Supporting Actor (Ethan Hawke), Best Supporting Actress (Patricia Arquette), Best Original Screenplay, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Editing. Additionally, the star of the film, Ellar Coltrane, who comes of age before the audience's eyes, is up for Best Young Actor/Actress. "Interstellar" was cited in seven categories despite being shut out of the top races. It's up for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and Best Young Actor/Actress (Mackenzie Foy), in addition to five craft categories. "Gone Girl" is nominated for six awards: Best Picture, Best Director (David Fincher), Best Actress (Rosamund Pike), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Score. Also earning six bids is "The Imitation Game," which contends for Best Picture, Best Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), Best Supporting Actress (Keira Knightley), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Score. "Selma" and "The Theory of Everything" both received five nominations, including Best Picture. "Selma" is also up for Best Director (Ava DuVernay), Best Actor (David Oyelowo), Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Song ("Glory," by Common and John Legend). While "Theory" missed a Best Director bid, it was recognized for Best Actor (Eddie Redmayne), Best Actress (Felicity Jones), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Score. Rounding out Best Picture are "Unbroken" (4 nominations), "Whiplash" (4 nominations), and "Nightcrawler" (3 nominations). The Critics' Choice Awards have a strong track record of predicting the Oscars. Handed out by the almost 300 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, these awards have foreseen 12 of the past 19 Best Picture Oscar winners (including 7 of the last 10), 15 Best Directors (7 of the last 10), 13 Best Actors (nine of the last 10), 10 Best Actresses (6 of the last 10), 10 Best Supporting Actors (6 of the last 10) and 12 Best Supporting Actresses (7 of the last 10) – if you count Kate Winslet ("The Reader"), who won Supporting Actress at Critics' Choice but went on to take the lead prize at the Oscars. Last year, eight of the nine Oscar contenders for Best Picture were nominated at the Critics' Choice; only "Philomena" fell short with the BFCA. And these kudos previewed all but four of last year's acting nominees, missing one per category.

Golden Globes (Film) 2014

Nominations for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards were announced on Dec. 11 and, as expected, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association showered "Birdman" with seven nominations while "Boyhood" and "The Imitation Game" earned five bids each. Three films — "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Selma" and "The Theory of Everything" — picked up four nominations apiece.  Oscars frontrunner "Boyhood" contends for Best Drama as do "Foxcatcher," "The Imitation Game," "Selma' and "The Theory of Everything." Up against "Birdman" for Best Comedy/Musical are "The Grand Budapest Hotel,"  "Into the Woods," "Pride" and "St. Vincent."  "Birdman" also reaped three acting bids — lead Michael Keaton and featured players Edward Norton and Emma Stone — as well as two nods for writer/director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and its score. Likewise, "Boyhood" writer/director Richard Linklater contends in both those categories with Ethan Hawke and Oscar frontrunner Patricia Arquette picking up supporting bids.  "The Imitation Game" also earned two acting nominations — for star Benedict Cumberbatch and supporting actress Keira Knightley — as well for its screenplay and score.  The surprise of the day was the strong showing by spring release "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which could be the strongest rival to "Birdman" for Best Comedy/Musical. Writer/director Wes Anderson earned nods in both those races while Ralph Fiennes contends against Keaton for Comedy/Musical Actor.  Also in that race are Globe favorites Bill Murray ("St. Vincent") and Joaquin Phoenix ("Inherent Vice") and, in a surprise, Christoph Waltz who had been expected to contend in supporting for his scene-stealing performance in "Big Eyes."  Keaton's strongest Oscar rivals are all over in Drama Actor: Cumberbatch, Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), David Oyelowo ("Selma"),  Eddie Redmayne ("Theory of Everything") and a surging Jake Gyllenhaal ("Nightcrawler") who surprised us with a SAG nomination on Wednesday.  Likewise, watch out for Jennifer Aniston ("Cake") in Drama Actress; she also earned a SAG bid. She could pull off an upset against Oscars frontrunner Julianne Moore ("Still Alice"). The rest of the race includes three other formidable Oscar contenders: Felicity Jones ("The Theory of Everything"), Rosamund Pike ("Gone Girl") and Reese Witherspoon ("Wild").  Moore also earned a Comedy/Musical Actress nominations for her Cannes-winning performance in "Map to the Stars." There she faces off against Amy Adams ("Big Eyes"), Emily Blunt ("Into the Woods"), Helen Mirren ("The Hundred-Foot Journey") and Quvenzhane Wallis ("Annie").  Winners will be revealed in a kudocast airing live coast-to-coast on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 11, hosted for the third year in a row by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

"Fargo" leads the Golden Globe nominations for TV with an impressive five nominations: Best TV Movie/Limited Series, a pair of bids for Best Movie/Limited Series Actor (Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman), Best Movie/Limited Series Actress (Allison Tolman), and Best TV Supporting Actor (Colin Hanks). Thornton has four previous nominations and no wins, while these are the first Globe nominations for Freeman, Tolman, and Hanks. Following close behind is the HBO anthology series "True Detective," which was entered as a drama series at the Emmys, but competes as a longform program at the Globes in four races: Best TV Movie/Limited Series, Best Movie/Limited Series Actor (Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey), and Best TV Supporting Actress (Michelle Monaghan) McConaughey won a Globe just last year for his leading role in the film "Dallas Buyers Club," which subsequently won him an Oscar. This is the fourth nomination for Harrelson, while Monaghan is nominated for the first time. "Orange is the New Black" earned three nominations: Best Musical/Comedy Series, Musical/Comedy Actress (Taylor Schilling), and TV Supporting Actress (Uzo Aduba). "Orange" earned just one nomination last year (for Schilling) when it competed as a drama, but it changed course at the Emmys, where it was entered as a comedy and earned 12 nominations and three wins. Now it has made a successful switch at the Globes. "The Normal Heart" also picked up a trio of nominations: Best TV Movie/Limited Series, Best Movie/Limited Series Actor (Mark Ruffalo), and Best TV Supporting Actor (Matt Bomer). HBO's fall miniseries "Olive Kitteridge" fared well, earning three nominations: Best TV Movie/Limited Series, Movie/Limited Series Actress (Frances McDormand), and TV Supporting Actor (Bill Murray). Murray is a past Globe winner for "Lost in Translation," while McDormand won a special ensemble prize for "Short Cuts" but hasn't picked up individual honors. Netflix's dark political drama "House of Cards" earned three Globe nominations: Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor (Kevin Spacey), and Best Drama Actress (Robin Wright). The series was nominated in the same categories last year, and Wright was a winner. Meanwhile, Showtime's debut drama series "The Affair" picked up nominations in the same three categories: Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor (Dominic West), and Best Drama Actress (Ruth Wilson). It's the secomd Globe nomination for both Wilson and West. Wilson previously contended for the TV miniseries "Jane Eyre," while West earned a Movie/Mini Actor bid in 2011 for "The Hour." "The Good Wife" earned bids for Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actress (Julianna Margulies), and Best TV Supporting Actor (Alan Cumming). The CBS legal drama was nominated in all three categories last year – with Josh Charles receiving the supporting nod that went to Cumming this year – and though it has yet to win the top category, Margulies previously won her category in 2009. HBO's "Girls" is back in the races for Best Musical/Comedy Series and Best Musical/Comedy Actress (Lena Dunham) for the third year in a row. It won both awards in 2012. CW's "Jane the Virgin" had a big breakthrough. The series earned nominations for Best Musical/Comedy Series and Best Musical/Comedy Actress for its breakout star Gina Rodriguez. Another debuting comedy that picked up multiple bids was Amazon's "Transparent," up for Best Musical/Comedy Series and Best Musical/Comedy Actor (Jeffrey Tambor)  The period drama "Downton Abbey" scored a pair of bids: Best Drama Series and Best TV Supporting Actress (Joanne Froggatt). Starz made an appearance with two nominations for the miniseries "The Missing": Best TV Movie/Limited Series and Best Movie/Limited Series Actress (Frances O'Connor). Showtime's "Ray Donovan" picked up a pair of acting nods: Best Drama Actor (Liev Schreiber) and Best TV Supporting Actor (Jon Voight). Voight is the defending champ in his category.

SAG Awards (TV) 2014

The SAG Awards nominations were announced December 10, and ABC's sitcom "Modern Family" leads all TV programs with four nominations. Not far behind were "Boardwalk Empire," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," and "House of Cards" with three nods apiece. (Click here for the complete list of SAG film and TV nominations.) "Modern Family" earned repeat nominations for Best TV Comedy Ensemble, Best Comedy Actor (Ty Burrell, who won last year), and Best Comedy Actress (Julie Bowen). But earning an additional Comedy Actor bid was Eric Stonestreet, who has been nominated twice before but was snubbed last year. The "Modern Family" cast has won Best Comedy Ensemble four years in a row. "Boardwalk Empire" earned three bids for its farewell season: Best Drama Ensemble (which it won in 2010 and 2011), Best Drama Actor (Steve Buscemi, who also won in 2010 and 2011), and Best TV Stunt Ensemble. "Game of Thrones" earned nominations in the same three categories: Drama Ensemble, Drama Actor (Peter Dinklage), and TV Stunt Ensemble. "Thrones" has won the Stunt award for the last three years in a row. "Homeland" is nominated for Best Drama Ensemble, Best Drama Actress (Claire Danes, who won in 2012), and Best TV Stunt Ensemble. "House of Cards" is up for Best Drama Ensemble as well, and both of its lead stars picked up acting nominations: Kevin Spacey for Best Drama Actor and Robin Wright for Best Drama Actress. 2012 Best Drama Ensemble winner "Downton Abbey" returns to that top race. Its scene-stealing star Maggie Smith is also up for Best Drama Actress again after winning last year. Rounding out the dramatic contenders, HBO's anthology "True Detective" picked up a pair of Drama Actor bids for its leading men Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. And three women picked up the lone nominations for their shows in the Drama Actress contest: Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder"), Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), and Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"). Picking up two nods in the comedy races was "Orange is the New Black," which was snubbed completely last year when it competed as a drama. This year, it's up for Best Comedy Ensemble and Best Comedy Actress (Uzo Aduba). "The Big Bang Theory" was also nominated twice, picking up bids for Best Comedy Ensemble and Best Comedy Actor (Jim Parsons). The series has yet to win a SAG Award in any category. "Veep" is also a double nominee, returning to the same categories where it earned bids last year: Best Comedy Ensemble and Best Comedy Actress (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Louis-Dreyfus is the defending champion in her race. Also nominated for Comedy Actor are Louis C.K. ("Louie") and William H. Macy ("Shameless"), while Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie") and Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") return to the Comedy Actress lineup. HBO's "Olive Kitteridge" and "The Normal Heart" are the top contenders among movies and miniseries, receiving two apiece. "Olive" received acting nods for its two stars, Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins, while "Normal Heart" also showed up in both acting races with Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo. Also nominated for Best Movie/Miniseries Actor are Adrien Brody ("Houdini"), Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock: His Last Vow"), and Billy Bob Thornton ("Fargo"). And also in contention for Movie/Miniseries Actress are Ellen Burstyn ("Flowers in the Attic"), Maggie Gyllenhaal ("The Honourable Woman"), and Cicely Tyson ("The Trip to Bountiful").

"Birdman" leads the SAG Awards nominations with four bids while "Boyhood," "Birdman," "The Imitation Game" and "The Theory of Everything" each picked up three. All contend for Best Ensemble with "Birdman" up for three individual acting awards and the rest vying for two apiece. The fifth ensemble nominee is "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which was shut out of the individual acting races. Of these, "The Theory of Everything" did better than our Experts expected by nabbing that Ensemble nod. It bumped "Into the Woods" out and that tuner had to settle for a bid by Supporting Actress Meryl Streep. All of our Oscar frontrunners are in the running here: "Boyhood" as well as leads Michael Keaton ("Birdman") and Julianne Moore ("Still Alice") and featured players J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Patricia Arquette ("Boyhood"). Last year, all four Oscar acting champs first prevailed here. However, these kudos are not as prescient when it comes to Best Picture. Last year, the guild chose the cast of "American Hustle" while the Oscar went to "12 Years a Slave." Indeed, in the 19-year history of the Best Ensemble award, that winner went on to take Oscar's top prize only nine times. However, SAG did presage two of Oscar's biggest upsets: "Shakespeare in Love" over "Saving Private Ryan" in 1998, and "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain" in 2005. Among the surprises in this year's roster: lead acting nominations for Jennifer Aniston ("Cake") and Jake Gyllenhaal ("Nightcrawler") and a supporting bid by Naomi Watts for "St. Vincent." She is also part of the nominated ensemble of "Birdman."  "Selma" was shut out with David Oyelowo, who plays Martin Luther King, Jr. missing out on an expected Best Actor nomination. Also, MIA were SAG favorite Amy Adams ("Big Eyes") and second generation star Laura Dern ("Wild").  However, there is still Oscar hope for many of those snubbed. Historically, the SAG Awards, which began in 1994, offered an uncanny crystal ball to the Oscars. The two kudos usually agreed on 18 to 19 of their 20 acting contenders, but the overlap rate dropped dramatically two years ago after SAG merged with AFTRA. Since then, these precursor prizes have foreseen only 14 of the eventual Oscar nominees in each of the past two years and in 2012 overlooked eventual Oscar champ Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained") entirely.

Grammy Awards 2014

Last year, Jay-Z reaped a leading nine nominations at the Grammy Awards. This year it was his wife Beyonce who topped the list, albeit with only six bids but that was more than enough to break her tie with Dolly Parton as the most nominated female performer at 46 nominations each. Queen B now reigns supreme with a staggering 52 bids in all. Her self-titled disc contends for Album of the Year as well as both Best Urban Album and Best Surround Sound Album. In addition, her hit "Drunk in Love" earned for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance. And the video record of her "On The Run" tour with Jay-Z was nominated for Best Music Film.  Sam Smith, who also earned six nominations, was recognized in all four General Field categories: Album of the Year for "In the Lonely Hour," Record and Song of the Year for "Stay with Me" and Best New Artist. He also contends for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.  And Pharrell Williams also vies for six awards, including three separate bids for Album of the Year for his own disc"GIRL" as well as his work on Beyonce's platter and Ed Sheeran's "X."  The fifth Album of the Year contender is a surprise: Beck's "Morning Phase."  Also up for Best New Artist are: Iggy Azalea, Bastille, Brandy Clark and Haim. Of this quartet, Azalea did the best with four bids, including Record of the Year for her summer hit "Fancy." In that race, Azalea and Smith face off against Taylor Swift for her pop hit "Shake it Off," Meghan Trainor for the infectious "All About That Bass" and Sia for her shattering "Chandelier."  All of these tunes save "Fancy" are also up for Song of the Year. Replacing it in that category is Hozier's "Take Me to Church."

Critics Choice Awards Nominations 2014

Critics Choice Awards Nominations 2014

The Broadcast Film Critics Association will announce their nominees for the 20th annual Critics' Choice Awards on Monday, December 15. Over the first 19 years of the Critics' Choice kudos, they have proven to be the most accurate precursor prizes to the Oscars.  The 250 members of the BFCA have predicted 13 of the past 18 Best Picture Oscar winners, 13 Best Actors, 10 Best Actresses, 10 Supporting Actors, and 12 Supporting Actresses as Academy Award champs. Last year, they presaged all of those categories: "12 Years a Slave" as Best Picture and the four acting winners of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), and Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave").

Los Angeles Film Critics Awards 2014

Los Angeles Film Critics Awards 2014

The Los Angeles Film Critics will announce their 2014 winners on Sunday, December 7. Last year, the members of this Southern California group couldn't make up their minds in several key categories. "Gravity" and "Her" tied for Best Picture. Both films went on to contend at the Oscars but lost to "12 Years a Slave." The critics split the Best Actress prize between Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), who went on to win the Oscar, and Adele Exarchopoulos ("Blue is the Warmest Color"), who was snubbed by the academy.  There was also a tie for Best Supporting Actor between eventual Oscar winner Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club") and James Franco ("Spring Breakers"), who did not receive an Oscar nomination. "Gravity" director Alfonso Cuaron prevailed as Best Director with these critics and then at the Academy Awards.Bruce Dern ("Nebraska") won Best Actor but lost at the Oscars while eventual Oscar champ Lupita Nyong'o was named Best Supporting Actress. In this group's recent history, the Best Actress category has been a sore spot in terms of predicting Oscar success. Prior to 2012 with the tie between Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") and Emmanuelle Riva ("Amour"), the previous five winners were not even nominated at the Oscars: Yun Jung-Hee ("Poetry," 2011), Kim Hye-Ja ("Mother," 2010), Yolande Moreau ("Seraphine," 2009), and Sally Hawkins ("Happy-Go-Lucky," 2008). Indeed, only four out of the past 14 winners have won Oscars the same year: Lawrence (2012), Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose," 2007), Helen Mirren ("The Queen," 2006), and Julia Roberts ("Erin Brockovich," 2000).

Indie Spirit Awards 2014

Indie Spirit Awards 2014

While Oscars frontrunner "Boyhood" picked up five bids for the Independent Spirit Awards, it was "Birdman" that led with six when nominations were announced. Other films with five nods apiece were "Nightcrawler" and "Selma" while "Love Is Strange" and "Whiplash" earned four each. All but "Nightcrawler" contend for Best Picture at the 30th annual edition of these kudos; that film by writer/director Dan Gilroy is up for the First Feature award. Only American feature film nominees with budgets under $20 million were eligible for consideration. The domestic requirement ruled out "The Theory of Everything" while the fiscal ceiling kept "Foxcatcher," "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Inherent Vice" from contending. However, the committee that decides the nominations bestowed a Special Distinction Award on the cast and creative team behind "Foxcatcher" and the Robert Altman Award to those involved in "Inherent Vice." All four of our Oscar frontrunners for acting reaped bids: leads Michael Keaton ("Birdman") and Julianne Moore ("Still Alice") and supporting players J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Patricia Arquette ("Boyhood"). Last year, all four Oscar champs — Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") and Lupita Nyongo ("12 Years a Slave") — prevailed here first as did Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave."  Winners will be chosen by members of Film Independent. The prizes will be handed out on Feb. 21, one day before the Oscars during an afternoon ceremony on Santa Monica. For the first time, this kudocast will air live on IFC.

SAG Awards (TV) Nominations 2014

Use the menu to the left to read our overviews and handicapping of all eight TV races at the Screen Actors Guil Awards. And be sure to check out the charts that show the rankings and odds for all the possible nominees. After reviewing all the contenders, head over to our prediction center to log your forecasts for the eventual nominees. (Signing up for a free account takes just a minute.)  While the Screen Actors Guild Awards for film are typically an excellent predictor of the Oscars, the same hasn't always been true of SAG's relationship to the Emmys.  However, the SAG Awards last January did preview five of the six series winners at this summer's Emmys: "Modern Family," its supporting player Ty Burrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") first prevailed here on the comedy side while  "Breaking Bad" and its leading man Bryan Cranston were winners over in drama.  But while scene stealer Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey") won at SAG, "Breaking Bad" supporting player Anna Gunn repeated at the Emmys. With these guild awards not distinguishing between leading and supporting roles on the TV side, making predictions is never easy. For example, while Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") has four Emmys, he has yet to take home a SAG Award. That is because Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") had a stranglehold on the Comedy Actor category for seven years, losing for the first time last year to Burrell, who contends in supporting at the Emmys.  The three SAG comedy winners are all back in contention. Among the returning laffers and players looking to keep them from repeating are: "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Andy Samberg), "Episodes" (Matt LeBlanc), "Girls" (Lena Dunham), "House of Lies" (Don Cheadle), "New Girl" (Zooey Deschanel), "Nurse Jackie" (Edie Falco), and "Parks and Recreation" (Amy Poehler). Freshman contenders include "Bad Judge" (Kate Walsh), "Black-ish" (Anthony Anderson), "Mulaney" (John Mulaney), "Silicon Valley" (Thomas Middleditch), "Transparent" (Jeffrey Tambor), and "Vicious" (Ian McKellen). With "Breaking Bad" no longer in the race, three previous ensemble champs could make a comeback: "Mad Men" (2008, 2009), "Boardwalk Empire" (2010, 2011) and "Downton Abbey" (2012).  Other potential contenders among returning shows and performers are: "American Horror Story: Freak Show (Jessica Lange), "The Blacklist" (James Spader),  (Steve Buscemi), "Game of Thrones" (Peter Dinklage), "The Good Wife" (Julianna Margulies), "Homeland" (Claire Danes), "House of Cards" (Kevin Spacey), (Jon Hamm), "Masters of Sex" (Michael Sheen), "Orange is the New Black" (Taylor Schilling), "Orphan Black" (Tatiana Maslany), "Ray Donovan" (Liev Schreiber), and "Scandal" (Kerry Washington). Newcomers in the hunt include: "The Affair" (Dominic West), "Gotham" (Ben McKenzie), "How to Get Away with Murder" (Viola Davis), "The Knick" (Clive Owen), "Madam Secretary" (Tea Leoni), "Manhattan" (John Benjamin Hickey), "Penny Dreadful" (Josh Hartnett), "Red Band Society" (Octavia Spencer), and "True Detective" (Matthew McConaughey). Last year's SAG winners in the movie/miniseries categories were Michael Douglas ("Behind the Candelabra") and Helen Mirren ("Phil Spector"). Possible nominees this year include: Halle Berry ("Extant"), Adrien Brody ("Houdini"), Ellen Burstyn ("Petals on the Wind"), Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock"), Minnie Driver ("Return to Zero"), Anna Gunn and David Tennant ("Gracepoint"), Maggie Gyllenhaal ("The Honourable Woman"), Frances McDormand and Bill Murray ("Olive Kitteridge"), Bill Nighy ("Worricker"), Kiefer Sutherland ("24: Live Another Day"), Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman ("Fargo"), Cicely Tyson ("The Trip to Bountiful"), Christopher Walken ("Peter Pan Live"), and many of "The Normal Heart" cast (Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts).

Golden Globes (Film) Nominations 2014

Presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., the Golden Globe Awards honor the year's best in film and television. It is an important stop on the road to Oscars, with a slew of films and performers first prevailing at the Globes before going on to accept the film industry's highest honor. In recent years, the Globes' accuracy as a predictor of the Oscars has been hit and miss. The last three Oscar winners also took top honors at the Globes -- "The Artist" (Comedy/Musical Picture, 2011), "Argo" (Drama Picture, 2012), and "12 Years a Slave," 2013) -- but before that the academy disagreed with the HFPA all but once between 2004 and 2010: "Slumdog Millionaire" was the sole exception, winning Best Picture at both events in 2008. Who will be among this year's contenders when nominations are announced on Dec. 11? Visit our predictions center and make your predictions.

Grammy Nominations 2014

Last year's Grammys spread the wealth in the general field, with Daft Punk claiming Record ("Get Lucky") and Album of the Year ("Random Access Memories"), while Lorde took Song of the Year ("Royals"), and hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis claimed Best New Artist. Will this year's race be as wide-open, or will someone sweep as decisively as Adele in 2011? The biggest story of the eligibility period is Beyonce, who surprised fans by releasing her self-titled fifth album without any advance promotion. The "visual album" included 14 songs and 17 videos and won her critical acclaim (85 on MetaCritic) and three MTV Video Music Awards. Beyonce is one of the most awarded artists in Grammy history. However, while her staggering 17 trophies land her in the third spot among women -- only Alison Krauss and Aretha Franklin have more --  she has never won Album of the Year. Beyonce will have to overcome a slew of young stars who had major career breakthroughs in 2014, including Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, and Sam Smith. But will those hit-makers appeal to Grammy voters, whose tastes tend to skew older? Perhaps voters will favor relative veterans like Eminem and Beck, who have both earned multiple Album of the Year bids but never won. Neither have legends Bruce Springsteen or Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, both of whom have new records up for consideration. And what about past champs like Arcade Fire, Tony Bennett, and even the late Michael Jackson, whose posthumous set "Xscape" could be his last hurrah at the Grammys. Who do you think will prevail at this year's Grammys?

SAG Awards (Film) Nominations 2014

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are a peer-group award in which actors are honored by their collegeagues throughout the industry and is one of the strongest predictors of the Oscars' four acting categories. All four of last year's SAG film winners in the individual categories went on to Oscar wins a few weeks later. They were Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), and Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"). 14 of the 20 SAG nominees in those categories went on to repeat for Oscar nominations However, SAG is less reliable when predicting Best Picture. That was the case last year when "American Hustle" won for Best SAG Ensemble, while "12 Years a Slave" was the Academy Awards winner. In the award's 20-year history, the Best Ensemble Cast winner has matched Oscar's top prize only nine times. However, the SAG winner for Best Ensemble did predict two of Oscar's biggest upsets in recent years: "Shakespeare in Love" over "Saving Private Ryan" in 1998, and "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain" in 2005. Who will win this time around? And will SAG and Oscar go hand-in-hand for a 10th time? Visit our predictions center to make or edit your predictions for the 20th annual event.

Oscars 2014 Nominations

Oscars 2014 Nominations

Last year's 86th edition of the Academy Awards was historic as "12 Years a Slave" became the first film by a black director to win Best Picture. While Steve McQueen's biopic had been out front at the start of the derby, the lead changed hands throughout the season with the ascent and fall of, among others, "Gravity" and "American Hustle."  Will this year's Oscars race be equally eventful? Films inspired by true stories, such as "12 Years a Slave," are always popular with Oscar voters. Among this year's contenders are films from: Tim Burton ("Big Eyes"), Bennett Miller ("Foxcatcher"),  Tate Taylor ("Get On Up"), Phillippe Faladreau ("The Good Lie"), Morten Tyldum ("The Imitation Game"), Mike Leigh ("Mr. Turner"), Ava DuVernay ("Selma"), James Marsh ("The Theory of Everything"), Rupert Goold ("True Story"), Angelina Jolie ("Unbroken) and Jean-Marc Vallee ("Wild").   Directors who have previously helmed Best Picture winners and/or nominees back in the mix include Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu ("Birdman"), Ridley Scott ("Exodus: Gods and Kings"), Peter Jackson ("The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies"), Jason Reitman ("Men, Women and Children") and Stephen Daldry ("Trash"). Besides Jolie, two other actors turned directors are hoping for Oscar glory: Tommy Lee Jones ("The Homesman") and Jon Stewart ("Rosewater").  Among those auteurs looking to break through are: Richard Linklater ("Boyhood"), Ned Benson ("Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby"), Wes Anderson ("The Grand Budapest Hotel"), Michael Cuesta ("Kill the Messenger"), Ira Sachs ("Love Is Strange"), Justin Kurzel ("Macbeth"), David Croneberg ("Maps to the Stars"), J.C. Chandor ("A Most Violent Year"), Theodore Melfi ("St. Vincent") and David Chazelle ("Whiplash").  Adaptations of bestselling books looking for similar success at the Oscars include David Fincher's "Gone Girl" and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice." And two young adult titles with Oscar aspirations are Josh Boone's "The Fault in Our Stars" and Phillip Noyce's "The Giver."   While big-budget productions don't always turn out to be awards vehicles, among such projects this year with Oscar potential are David Ayer's WWII epic "Fury," David Dobkin's legal drama "The Judge" and Christopher Nolan's sci-fi flick "Interstellar." Several tune-filled films could reap bids including Will Gluck's update of "Annie," John Carney's charming "Begin Again" and "Chicago" helmer Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods."    And there are a slew of other potential contenders that lack distribution or release dates at this point. However, that could all change in the weeks to come.  To get started with your predictions, take a look at our previews for Best Picture, Director and the four acting races. Be sure to click on each film and person to read more about that contender. Then head over to our prediction center to log your forecasts for the eventual slate of nominees. (Sign in via Facebook or register for a free account in under a minute.)

MTV Video Music Awards 2014

Beyonce reaped a leading eight nominations for the upcoming 31st annual edition of the MTV Video Music Awards. Among these was a Video of the Year bid for her collaoration with hubby Jay-Z on "Drunk in Love" as well as Best Female Video for "Partition." Aussie import Iggy Azalea contends in seven categories and goes head to head against Beyonce for Video of the Year and Best Female Video with "Fancy." Eminem also earned seven nominations — including Best Male Video and Best Collaboration for "Monster" with Rihanna — but was snubbed in the top race. Ironically, he and Rihanna are the only two artists to have taken this top prize twice. He won for "The Real Slim Shady" (2000) and "Without Me" (2002) and has reaped a record six bids. She won for "Umbrella" (2007) and "We Found Love" (2012). Pharrell Williams reaped a Video of the Year bid for his Oscar-nominated tune "Happy" from "Despicable Me 2," as well as nods for Male and Pop Video. He competes against himself in Male Video as he features on Ed Sheeran's track "Sing." Miley Cyrus, who stole the show last year with her twerking, is up for Video of the Year with "Wrecking Ball," which also contends for Directing. The fifth Video of the Year contender is Sia with "Chandelier," which is also up for the Choreography award. Winners in many of the top categories will be decided by fan voting. This year's kudocast will air live across the MTV network of channels on Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. EST from the Forum in Los Angeles.

Emmy Awards 2014

"Breaking Bad" did exceedingly well in its last year in Emmy contention. As expected, it earned repeat nominations for Best Drama Series, Drama Actor (Bryan Cranston), Drama Supporting Actor (Aaron Paul), and Drama Supporting Actress (Anna Gunn). It received 16 nominations overall. For the complete list of nominees, click here. But lavish fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" is the year's most nominated show. Following last year's whopping 16 bids, it picked up an even more dominant 19 this time, including repeat nominations for Best Drama Series, Drama Supporting Actor (Peter Dinklage) and Drama Guest Actress (Diana Rigg). It returned to the Drama Supporting Actress race, but surprisingly Lena Headey replaced Emilia Clarke. "Orange is the New Black" scored highly among new shows, earning expected nominations for Best Comedy Series, Comedy Actress (Taylor Schilling), Comedy Supporting Actress (Kate Mulgrew), and Comedy Guest Actress (Uzo Aduba). They were joined by surprise nominees Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne (Comedy Guest Actress). The freshman Netflix series picked up 12 nominations overall, more than any other comedy. HBO's anthology "True Detective" is the year's top new drama, scoring bids for Best Drama Series, Drama Actor (Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey), Drama Writing, and Drama Directing. Including technical and craft races, it's nominated a total of 12 times, tied with "Orange" as the most nominated new series. Each previous seasons of FX's anthology series "American Horror Story" led the Emmys with 17 nominations, and true to form, "American Horror Story: Coven" picked up another massive haul of bids: 17 again, including Best Miniseries, Movie/Mini Actress (Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson), and Movie/Mini Supporting Actress (Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy, and Angela Bassett). FX's new anthology series "Fargo," inspired by the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning 1996 film, impressed the TV academy as much as the original film impressed the motion picture academy. It earned 18 total nominations, more than any other longform program, including Best Miniseries, Movie/Mini Actor (Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton), Movie/Mini Supporting Actor (Colin Hanks), and Movie/Mini Supporting Actress (Allison Tolman). The top telefilm was HBO's "The Normal Heart," earning nominations for Best TV Movie, Movie/Mini Actor (Mark Ruffalo), Movie/Mini Supporting Actor (Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Joe Mantello, and Alfred Molina), and Movie/Mini Supporting Actress (Julia Roberts). Activist and writer Larry Kramer earned a bid for his teleplay, while Ryan Murphy is up for directing. "Sherlock: His Last Vow" earned an impressive 12 nominations following the breakthrough success of "A Scandal in Belgravia," which earned 13 nominations in 2012. It's up for Best TV Movie, Movie/Mini Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), and Movie/Mini Supporting Actor (Martin Freeman). But it was shut out the last time around. Can it do better this time? "Modern Family" had another strong showing. After earning 12 nominations last year and winning Best Comedy for the fourth year in a row, it's back with 10 bids,including in the top category yet again, and in both supporting categories. But only three out of six adult members of the cast are in contention this year: Comedy Supporting Actors Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Comedy Supporting Actresses Julie Bowen. "Veep" continued its ascent through Emmy politics, gaining ground from its five nominations last year. It's up for nine, including Best Comedy Series, Comedy Actress (two-time defending champ Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Comedy Supporting Actor (last year's surprise winner Tony Hale), and Comedy Supporting Actress (Anna Chlumsky), in addition to a first ever bid for Best Comedy Writing.

TCA Awards 2014

TCA Awards 2014

The Television Critics Assn., which is composed primarily of print and web writers, announced the nominees for their 30th annual awards one day before the rival Broadcast Television Journalists Assn. announced the slate of contenders for the Critics' Choice TV Awards. (See complete list of nominations here.) "True Detective" reaped a leading four nominations: Program of the Year, Best New Program, Best Movie/Miniseries/Special, and Best Individual Achievement in Drama (Matthew McConaughey).  While the journos opted to classify this HBO hit as a miniseries, the paycaster has entered it as a drama series at the Emmys. We will get a preview of the showdown looming there as "Breaking Bad" defends its Program of the Year title while star Bryan Cranston is looking for his third win in Individual Achievement in Drama. It also contends for Best Drama Series. The other nominees for Program of the Year are "The Good Wife," 2012 champ "Game of Thrones" and "Orange is the New Black," which also vies for the New Program prize.   If TCA history is any indication, both "Breaking Bad" and "Game of Thrones" are underdogs in the top race. Over the 29-year history of these kudos, only one program has ever won Program of the Year twice: "The Sopranos" (1999 and 2001). "Game of Thrones" defends its Drama Series title against both "Breaking Bad" and "The Good Wife" as well as "The Americans" and "House of Cards."  Missing from the TCA lineup for the first time in its seven-year history is "Mad Men." This period piece won both Progam of the Year and New Program for its first season in 2008 and Drama Series three times (2008, 2009, 2011) as well as a performance prize for Jon Hamm in 2011.  The Comedy Series contenders are: two-time champ "The Big Bang Theory" (it won solo in 2009 and shared the award last year with "Parks and Recreation" which was snubbed this year), "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" which also reaped a New Program bid, "Louie," "The Mindy Project" and "Veep."  After finally achieving parity between the sexes in the performance prizes in 2012 and then having women outnumber men last year by six to four, the TCA has slid back with men earning six of the 10 nominations.  McConaughey and Cranston face off against Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), last year's winner Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black") and Matthew Rhys ("The Americans").  Reigning two-time champ Louis C.K. defends his Comedy performance prize against Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep"), Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project"), Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory").  Winners will be crowned by the TCA on July 19 during the summer press tour.
