  • World’s Finest Comments

    Did not expect double nominations for Hellen Mirren, didn’t even expect one.

  • Rics

    I like Nicole Kidman, but for role of Grace Kelly … really?!

  • JohnT2B

    No nomination for best cast ensemble for Parks and Rec? Come on, really? The last season was one of its strongest and it’s easily one of the funniest shows in the past few decades. Amy Poehler better win her category.

  • Justin Pitts

    Was hoping for a Stallone nomination for Creed. Surprised it got shut out.

  • GerradDowns

    No love for Fargo? disappointing.

  • GreenLakeT

    Ray Liotta in “Texas Rising?” That was a horrible series and his acting was just as bad or worse than the rest of the cast. Hard to take these nominations seriously when you see stuff like that.

  • Bradly Martin

    I heard Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchette would try to pull Supporting and Main lead even though Rooney is clearly the lead in that film. It’s so funny when award shows bullshit this way.

    • Vits/Vicente Torres

      I haven’t seen the movie, but I hate it when they do that too. I also read that Alicia Vikander will compete for THE DANISH GIRL as lead and supporting in different ceremonies.

    Surprised to see Sarah Silverman and Helen Mirren among the best actress noms. Surprised even more to see Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffallo shut out of Spotlight and Straight Outta Compton receiving ensemble cast nod. Trumbo raking in a lot of nominations, who would’ve thought? And no The Martian for movies or Empire or Fargo for TV? Huh interesting.

    Anyway, here’s my prediction:
    Actor: Leonardo di Caprio or Johnny Depp
    Actress: Brie Larson or Saoirse Ronan
    Supp actor: Idris Elba
    Supp actress: Alicia Vikander or Rooney Mara
    Ensemble cast: Spotlight
    Stunt ensemble: Furious 7 or Mad Max

    Actor – drama: Peter Dinklage
    Actress – drama: Viola Davis
    Actor – comedy: Jeffrey Tambor
    Actress – comedy: Uzo Aduba
    Actor – TV movie/miniseries: Idris Elba
    Actress – TV movie/miniseries: Susan Sarandon
    Ensemble cast – drama: Game of Thrones or Downtown Abbey
    Ensemble cast – comedy: Orange is the New Black or Modern Family
    Stunt ensemble: Game of Thrones

  • Vits/Vicente Torres

    BEASTS OF NO NATION and A VERY MURRAY CHRISTMAS were both made for Netflix. Why are they competing in different groups?
