Erica: I’ve never seen Mad Men. In fact, I’ve only seen three of the nominees. For me, I’m gonna go with Game of Thrones.
AJ: I’ve seen Game of Thrones and Orange Is the New Black, and I’ve seen Homeland and House of Cards by proxy (my husband and mom were watching them while I was doing something else, so I only half paid attention), so I can only speak for those, but I think Orange Is the New Black could be a surprise win, though Game of Thrones does do quite well.
Erica: I don’t think Kimmy is a real contender, either. It’s cute and quirky more than it is smart comedy.
AJ: The same with Jane Krakowski’s performance. I don’t think she’ll get the win, and as much as I loved Titus Burgess in the show I think it will most likely go to one of the other nominees as well.
AJ: I just don’t understand why she was snubbed the first two seasons. Her talent is obvious. Each character has her (or in one case, his) own personality and mannerisms. There is no doubt which character is which, even when they “switch places” to cover for another one of them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such amazing range from one person.
Jenni: My pick for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series is a toss-up between Uzo Aduba and Joanne Froggatt. Joanne has amazing acting chops (hello, that rape storyline!) but I feel Uzo had a better arc.
Jenni: I hate that every single year Modern Family is predicted to win (and usually does) for Best Comedy Series. I’d like to see Louie or Parks & Rec win. And since this was P&R’s final season, maybe throw them a bone?
Erica: Honestly, what is so great about Modern Family that it always wins?
Michele: I like the show, but I don’t get it. The ensemble works well though. I would love to see Parks and Rec win!!! As for Best Supporting Actress. Hmmm. It’s a three-way to me between Uzo, Emilia and Lena. This is a tough one. I’m going with Lena. She has been so wonderful in this role. A close second to Emilia.
