Best Miniseries or Movie
"American Horror Story: Coven"
“Bonnie & Clyde”
“The White Queen”
xoxokellylee: I haven’t even heard of most of these. For that reason, I’m just going to pick a random one and say AHS.
callmechristinae: It probably will go to Fargo. I haven’t seen a miniseries with that much critical buzz in a while. But do yourself a favor and watch this final season of Luther. It’s some of the best television I’ve seen in a while.
Best Actress Miniseries or Movie
Jessica Lange, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Sarah Paulson, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Helena Bonham Carter, “Burton and Taylor”
Minnie Driver, “Return to Zero”
Kristen Wiig, “The Spoils of Babylon”
Cicely Tyson, “The Trip Bountiful”
callmechristinae: I think this one will go to Jessica Lange.
xoxokellylee: Yeah, what she said.
Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie
Chiwetel Ejiofor, “Dancing on the Edge”
Martin Freeman, “Fargo”
Billy Bob Thornton, “Fargo”
Idris Elba, “Luther”
Mark Ruffalo, “The Normal Heart”
Benedict Cumberbatch, “Sherlock: His Last Vow”
xoxokellylee: I’m torn because Mark Ruffalo was awesome in The Normal Heart, but….Benedict Cumberbatch…. I think it’s either going to Billy Bob Thornton or Chiwetel Ejiofor, though.
callmechristinae: My heart says Idris Elba, my mind says Billy Bob Thornton. I wish I could say Benefict Cumberbatch, but this latest round of Sherlock was probably the weakest (through no fault of the actors).
Supporting Actor, Miniseries or Movie
Colin Hanks, “Fargo”
Jim Parsons, “The Normal Heart”
Joe Mantello, “The Normal Heart”
Alfred Molina, “The Normal Heart”
Matt Bomer, “The Normal Heart”
Martin Freeman, “Sherlock: His Last Vow”
callmechristinae: Who should get it? Jim Parsons or Matt Bomer. There’s a risk of vote splitting here again, but I think Matt Bomer has a strong chance being a fresher face to the voters.
xoxokellylee: Jim Parsons DESERVES this win. Or Matt Bomer. He was also amazing.
Supporting Actress, Miniseries or Movie
Frances Conroy, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Kathy Bates, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Angela Bassett, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Allison Tolman, “Fargo”
Ellen Burstyn, “Flowers In the Attic”
Julia Roberts, “The Normal Heart”
xoxokellylee: Julia Roberts actually impressed me in her role in The Normal Heart. I didn’t see any of these other nominees so I can’t really judge them.
callmechristinae: Why no Ruth Wilson for Luther? Seriously? She is AMAZING. But I guess I’ll go with Julia Roberts.
Outstanding Animated Program
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Project”
callmechristinae: I just want to hear someone say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the Emmys.
xoxokellylee: I just…..I can’t judge this.
Outstanding Host: Reality-Competition Program
Betty White, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers”
Tom Bergeron, “Dancing with the Stars”
Jane Lynch, “Hollywood Game Night”
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, “Project Runway”
Cat Deeley, “So You Think You Can Dance”
Anthony Bourdain, “The Taste”
xoxokellylee: Betty White should get this because she’s Betty White.
callmechristinae: Betty White or Tom Bergeron.
"The Amazing Race"
“So You Think You Can Dance”
“Dancing with the Stars”
callmechristinae: The Amazing Race seems to be the default come awards season. I think The Voice gets less respect because it hasn’t churned out superstars, but it’s great television and that’s what this category is about.
xoxokellylee: The Voice is so much better without Christina and Cee-Lo. They should get this award just to reinforce that good decision making.
"The Colbert Report"
“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live”
“Real Time with Bill Maher”
“Saturday Night Live”
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”
xoxokellylee: I want Jimmy to take this home because I’ve loved him for years and am so proud of this impressive step forward, but I know it’s either going to Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert.
callmechristinae: Colbert won last year and recently announced the end of the show. I think he’ll probably take it home again this year. But Jimmy Fallon has been a breath of fresh air to late night television.
“Dog with a Blog”
“Good Luck Charlie”
“Nick News With Linda Ellerbee - Family Secrets: When Violence Hits Home”
“One Last Hug: Three Days at Grief Camp”
“Wynton Marsalis – A YoungArts Masterclass”
callmechristinae: Uh, Nick News? I have no idea, but I watched that as a kid.
xoxokellylee: I didn’t even know this was a category…..I remember thinking Linda Ellerbee was old when WE watched Nick News and that was 20 years ago!
