Is this really our second awards show season since starting this website? As always, we’re excited to share with you our picks. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until next year to complain about Star Wars getting snubbed.
Best Motion Picture - Drama
Christina: Who knows, maybe Star Wars will be next year’s surprise pick. With the number of blockbusters coming out they’ll have to nominate at least one. I’m going with Spotlight. It has all the elements of award show bait and is low enough profile to be a good sleeper pick. Because we know voters like to be snooty about films few people have seen.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama
Kelly: All these women are strong competitors, but I’m going to predict the person who I’d most like to see win and that’s Saoirse Ronan. I love her and I want her to win and watch the presenter struggle with her cool Irish name.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama
Christina: DiCaprio. Remember, this isn’t the Oscars. He’s already won two Golden Globes (The Aviator, The Wolf of Wall Street).
Kelly: I said one step CLOSER.
Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Kelly: I don’t know why, but I’m inclined to say The Martian.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Christina: It will be Jennifer Lawrence or Amy Schumer because that’s how these award shows work.
Christina: I think I need to go with Schumer though, because I’ve heard Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t quite a fit for Joy.
Christina: If I were voting though it would be Lily Tomlin all the way.
Kelly: Good girl.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Kelly: I just want Matt Damon to win this and I can’t give a good reason why.
Best Motion Picture - Animated
Christina: I saw Inside Out and it was great. It was surprisingly deep for a kids animated feature. Plus I love me some Arizmendi pizza.
Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language
Kelly: I never know what to predict with foreign films because I don’t know anything about them. I’m going to just randomly pick one and say Hungary.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Christina: Alicia Vikander is having a good year, and I think this is her best shot at taking home a trophy. I really need to see that movie.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Christina: Is it because you love The Beach Boys?
Kelly: I do love The Beach Boys. I didn’t even know that was their movie.
Christina: He plays Brian Wilson. But I’m going with Stallone because he has the sentimental vote. And I want Harrison Ford to get that next year.
Kelly: My love for Harrison Ford knows no bounds.
Best Director - Motion Picture
Christina: Ridley Scott. And you’ll take credit for any of them? That seems like cheating…
Kelly: It’s my podcast and I’ll do what I want.
Best Screenplay - Motion Picture
Kelly: I think at this point, it’s pretty obvious that I haven’t seen any of these movies and so I’m just picking randomly. I choose Quentin Tarantino because the HFPA seems to like him and his last name is similar to mine.
Best Original Score - Motion Picture
Kelly: I’m almost embarrassed to say that I loved the Twilight music, but I did and that’s why I want Carter Burwell to win this. Also, because of Christina’s reason. That makes me sound less ridiculous.
Best Original Song - Motion Picture
Kelly: I just can’t say anything about Fifty Shades of Grey deserves any sort of award ever. That being said, even though I love “See You Again”, I think “Writing’s On The Wall” is going to take this home. Good job, Sam Smith!
Best Television Series - Drama
Christina: Mr. Robot!
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama
Kelly: I’ve heard some amazing things about Outlander so I’m going with Caitriona Balfe because that show deserves some love.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama
Christina: Rami Malek DESERVES this. There really isn’t a performance like his on television today.
Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy
Kelly: I don’t know why I’m picking it, but I’m going with Mozart in the Jungle.
Christina: Probably because Amazon is running commercials for it nonstop.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy
Christina: I think it will be Julia Louis-Dreyfus. But I want it to be Lily Tomlin.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy
Kelly: After the Transparent craze at last year’s awards, I’m thinking that Jeffrey Tambor will probably take it again. However, Aziz Ansari’s show has been killing it and I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see him come out from behind and win this.
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television
Christina: Fargo. Can we just stop with American Horror Story already?
Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television
Kelly: I’ve seen Felicity Huffman in a few things and seem to always like her work and since I don’t know much about this category, I’m just going to choose her
Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television
Christina: Idris Elba. The new series of Luther was epic mostly due to his performance. But I spent the night it aired at the theater watching Oscar Isaac fly an X-Wing. So who’s the real winner here?
Kelly: Christina, I’m truly shocked by your choice. </sarcasm> Also, I was also in the theatre watching StormPilot blossom and I think that makes us BOTH winners in that situation…..well, us, Poe Dameron, and Finn.
Christina: At least we’ll get lots of Oscar Isaac red carpet interviews.
Kelly: Can his new nickname just be “The Hair”?
Christina: He does have a fabulous head of hair.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture made for Television
Kelly: I’ve heard that Joanne Froggatt is great in this show and since it’s their farewell season, I’m going with her.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture made for Television
Christina: Christian Slater. But Tobias Menzies definitely would get the award for most talked about scene on television this year.
