You wouldn’t think it, but there is a significant different in the mind of an Academy voter and a Hollywood Foreign Press voter.  To end an excellent festival, “The Imitation Game” went home with the TIFF Audience Award. One of the runner-up films was “St. Vincent” another Weinstein film that should farewell in the comedy categories at the Globes.

We went ahead and updated everything, including television categories as we start seeking into a new Fall season for shows.

Last Update: 07/12/14

“American Horror Story: Coven” probably had the biggest audience out of all of these. In fact I guarantee it. Unfortunately it’s doubtful, even with a plethora of nominations, that “American Horror Story” wins any awards. The “mini-series” had a weaker season with lower critical praise. So I’m thinking they’ll give it to a veteran in Cicely Tyson. Still, it’s anyone’s game with Lange, Driver, Carter, and Wiig in the mix as well, depending on how the voters want to go.
