Best Drama Series
“Game of Thrones”
“House of Cards”
callmechristinae: This is a showdown between “Breaking Bad” and “True Detective.” Everyone else can just go home.
xoxokellylee: ….Game of Thrones? Ah, let’s be honest: Christina is right.
Best Actress in a Drama Series
Lizzy Caplan, “Masters of Sex”
Claire Danes, “Homeland”
Michelle Dockery, “Downton Abbey”
Julianna Margulies, “The Good Wife”
Kerry Washington, “Scandal”
Robin Wright, “House of Cards”
xoxokellylee: Four for you, Janis Ian. You go, Janis Ian! And none for Gretchen Weiners. Bye.
callmechristinae: I’ve heard great things about Robin Wright’s performance, and Julianna Margulies and Kerry Washington are always amazing. I think this category might be the biggest toss up. Interesting that Tatiana Maslany, who won the Critics Choice Award, doesn’t even score a nomination here for Orphan Black.
Best Actor in a Drama Series
Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”
Jeff Daniels, “The Newsroom”
Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”
Woody Harrelson, “True Detective”
Matthew McConaughey, “True Detective”
Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards”
callmechristinae: I think Harrelson and McConaughey could split the vote, giving Bryan Cranston the chance to win for his final performance as Walter White. I was really disappointed that neither of the “Hannibal” leads made to final cut. They give flawless performances of flawed characters.
xoxokellylee: I think it’s either going to go to Bryan Cranston because it’s his final performance as Walter White or Matthew McConaghey so he can get one step closer to EGOT. But can I point out the major snub to Michael Sheen as Dr. Masters on Masters of Sex?
Supporting Actor, Drama Series
Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
Jim Carter, “Downton Abbey”
Peter Dinklage, “Game of Thrones”
Josh Charles, “The Good Wife”
Mandy Patinkin, “Homeland”
Jon Voight, “Ray Donovan”
xoxokellylee: I think this is going to go to Jon Voight just because, hey, he’s Jon Voight. I also wouldn’t mind Josh Charles taking this home.
callmechristinae: Jon Voight is really amazing on Ray Donovan. His performance is effortless. But I expect some votes to swing Aaron Paul and Josh Charles’ way for their final performances in those roles. xoxokellylee: Mandy Patinkin, holla!
Supporting Actress, Drama Series
Anna Gunn, “Breaking Bad”
Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey”
Lena Headey, “Game of Thrones”
Christine Baranski, “The Good Wife”
Christina Hendricks, “Mad Men”
Joanne Froggatt, “Downton Abbey”
callmechristinae: I’m calling Maggie Smith because she’s Maggie Smith, but Lena Headey probably has an outside chance.
xoxokellylee: My vote will always go to Maggie Smith.
callmechristinae: Five points for Gryffindor.
xoxokellylee: Endless points to Granny Wendy.
Outstanding Guest Actor in Drama
Paul Giamatti as Harold Levinson in “Downton Abbey”
Dylan Baker as Colin Sweeney in “The Good Wife”
Reg E. Cathey as Freddy in “House Of Cards”
Robert Morse as Bertram Cooper in “Mad Men”
Beau Bridges as Barton Scully in “Masters of Sex”
Joe Morton as Rowan Pope in “Scandal”
xoxokellylee: Beau Bridges’ character was such an interesting one on Masters of Sex, but I haven’t seen all these other men.
callmechristinae: I like Dylan Baker?
Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series
Margo Martindale as Claudia in “The Americans”
Diana Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell in “Game of Thrones”
Kate Mara as Zoe Barnes in “House of Cards”
Allison Janney as Margaret Scully in “Masters of Sex”
Jane Fonda as Leona Lansing in “The Newsroom”
Kate Burton as Sally Langston in “Scandal”
callmechristinae: I think Allison Janney, but I’m not sure why…
xoxokellylee: I liked what a conniving person Lady Oleanna was. I kind of want her to take this just for her awesomeness, but I have a feeling it will go to Kate Burton. Allison Janney was funny on Masters of Sex. I wouldn’t mind her taking it home either.
