TV Critics Association Awards- Predictions

The nominees for the  2015 TV Critics Association Awards have been announced and it is an interesting selection. It’s different to the Emmys as it celebrates achievement in Drama and Comedy without separating it into Best Actor and Best Actress, just naming 5 nominees overall in both, as well as celebrating new shows with Best New Series and older shows with the Heritage Award. This has meant some snubs, with big names such as Kevin Spacey, Terrence Howard, Kyle Chandler, Robin Wright and Julianna Margulies all missing out for Individual Achievement in Drama and Jim Parsons, Louis C.K., William H. Macy, Matt LeBlanc, Ellie Kemper, Edie Falco and Amy Poehler all missing out in Comedy. Also, in the Outstanding Achievement (Best Series) categories, Modern Family, Veep, Louie and Silicon Valley all are missing in Comedy, while there were snubs for House of Cards, Downton Abbey, Better Call Saul, The Affair and Orange is the New Black in Drama. Overall, it’s interesting, with underdogs such as Constance Wu and Justified getting in, and here’s my predictions:

Individual Achievement in Comedy: Jeffrey Tambor- Transparent

Individual Achievement in Drama: Viola Davis- How to Get Away with Murder

Outstanding Achievement in News and Television: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming: The Amazing Race

Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming: Sesame Street

Outstanding New Program: Transparent

Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Mini-Series and Specials: Olive Kitteridge

Outstanding Achievement in Comedy: Transparent

Outstanding Achievement in Drama: Mad Men

Heritage Award: Late Show/Late Night with David Letterman

Program of the Year: Mad Men.
