12 Years a Slave
August: Osage County
Dallas Buyers Club
Personally, I would've replaced Prisoners with August: Osage County. That movie just does not look interesting. At all.
Bruce Dern, Nebraska
Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips
Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club
Forest Whitaker, The Butler
I can imagine the Oscar lead category to look just like this. Dern is the wild card.
Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
Sandra Bullock, Gravity
Judi Dench, Philomena
Meryl Streep, August: Osage County
Emma Thompson, Saving Mr. Banks
I was hoping Amy Adams would sneak in. I still won't count out Adele Exarchopoulos. She could still get in there.
Barkhad Abdi, Captain Phillips
Daniel Bruhl, Rush
Michael Fassbender, 12 Years a Slave
Janes Gandolfini, Enough Said
Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
There was a lot of surprises in this category for me. Abdi being the biggest one. I wasn't expecting Bruhl or Gandolfini either. I can't imagine the Oscar, Globes of BAFTA nominations matching this category exactly.
Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle
Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave
Julia Roberts, August: Osage County
June Squibb, Nebraska
Oprah Winfrey, The Butler
I'm so happy for Lupita Nyong'o. Give her this award now.

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Jeff Daniels, The NewswroomPeter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards
Fuck yeah Bryan Cranston! I can't believe they chose Dinklage over Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. I love Dinklage, but NCW had the better story this season.
Actress – Drama Series
Claire Danes, Homeland
Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad
Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Kerry Washington, Scandal
I really hope Anna Gunn beats Claire Danes. I think Michelle Fairley deserves to be in here, but apparently only Lady Sati and I think that.

Yay for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Boo for Mayim Bialik. (I'm sorry, that actress just rubs me the wrong way)

I'm psyched for Breaking Badd, Game of Thrones and Boardwalk.
Ensemble – Comedy
The Big Bang Theory
I'm sure Modern Family will win this again, but I'd love to see someone new take it home. Like Veep or Big Bang Theory.
