On the television side of things “True Detective,” “House of Cards,” and “Modern Family” should all easily show up. “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Downton Abbey,” “Fargo, ” “Orange is the New Black,” and “The Big Bang Theory” are all strong possibilities in multiple categories as well.

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.

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