  1. The only thing more predictable than who are going to be nominated, are who are going to be the winners.

  2. I hope Hugh, Judi and Maggie will get awards. But majority of nominated seemd to be the same year after year.
    I find it very odd, every year almost all or all nominated are white. Why?

  3. I'm really glad Kidman is getting a lot of love for The Paperboy. She was phenomenal in it! I mean, the movie is trash, but I couldn't take my eyes off her.

  4. Minor correction: Hugh Jackman has been nominated for Best Actor (not Supporting Actor) in a Muscial or Comedy...Go Hugh!

  7. I take it back, I see Lange and Paulson were nominated in the best Actress and Supporting actress of a TV movie or Mini Series categories, which weren't included in this list. Phew and Yay!

  8. If it's Thursday, Towleroad must be littered with errors and misinformation.

  10. It's a damn shame Scandal was passed up, there is some truly remarkable acting in that show.

  11. No Paranorman! Boo! It was so good.

  12. Anyone else think the musical/comedy category is outdated? Les Mis should be nominated with Lincoln....not Silver Linings Playbook.
