Award Season is coming up and I want to share with you my bets for the television category. I won’t do the movie nominations, just because I saw few of the movie nominees. On the 23rd of January, Academy Awards will release their nominations and then I will try to watch all the movies and compare them having the other awards in account.
Here some of the categories that I’m most excited about!
Best Comedy Series
The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
Modern Family (ABC)
Both Big Bang and Modern Family have been decreasing its quality over the years, but they’re still on my top shows of all time when it comes to comedy. I didn’t watch GLOW, but I know everyone has been loving it and I won’t be surprised if it earns some awards.
Best Actor in a Comedy Series
Anthony Anderson, black-ish (ABC)
Aziz Ansari, Master of None (Netflix)
Hank Azaria, Brockmire (IFC)
Ted Danson, The Good Place (NBC)
Thomas Middleditch, Silicon Valley (HBO)
Randall Park, Fresh Off the Boat (ABC)
Best Actress in a Comedy Series
Kristen Bell, The Good Place (NBC)
Alison Brie, GLOW (Netflix)
Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
Sutton Foster, Younger (TV Land)
Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
Constance Wu, Fresh Off the Boat (ABC)
I feel Fresh Off the Boat is a little underated and I don’t know why, it is amazing! Both Randall and Constance’s work are fenomenal and they totally deserve this recognition.
Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
Walton Goggins, Vice Principals (HBO)
Sean Hayes, Will & Grace (NBC)
Marc Maron, GLOW (Netflix)
Kumail Nanjiani, Silicon Valley (HBO)
Ed O’Neill, Modern Family (ABC)
Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Alex Borstein, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
Betty Gilpin, GLOW (Netflix)
Jenifer Lewis, black-ish (ABC)
Alessandra Mastronardi, Master of None (Netflix)
Rita Moreno, One Day at a Time (Netflix)
Best Drama Series
American Gods (Starz)
The Crown (Netflix)
Game of Thrones (HBO)
The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)
Stranger Things (Netflix)
This Is Us (NBC)
This is one of the hardest to decide. I think the Crown is going to win, This is Us is the best in terms of “real life drama” and The Handmaid’s is the best “dystopic drama”. I don’t feel Stranger Things fits on this category, because it’s more like a cult show and doesn’t need this “attention seeking”.
Best Actor in a Drama Series
Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us (NBC)
Paul Giamatti, Billions (Showtime)
Freddie Highmore, Bates Motel (A&E)
Ian McShane, American Gods (Starz)
Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul (AMC)
Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan (Showtime)
Freddie Highmore did the role of his life in Bates Motel and I doubt he can surpass that.
Best Actress in a Drama Series
Caitriona Balfe, Outlander (Starz)
Christine Baranski, The Good Fight (CBS All Access)
Claire Foy, The Crown (Netflix)
Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black (BBC America)
Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)
Robin Wright, House of Cards (Netflix)
Anyone of this ladies could take the crown on this one, but Tatiana Maslany is the best actress of her generation and it makes me mad that no one in Hollywood gives her that credit.
Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Bobby Cannavale, Mr. Robot (USA)
Asia Kate Dillon, Billions (Showtime)
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones (HBO)
David Harbour, Stranger Things (Netflix)
Delroy Lindo, The Good Fight (CBS All Access)
Michael McKean, Better Call Saul (AMC)
Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Gillian Anderson, American Gods (Starz)
Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones (HBO)
Ann Dowd, The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)
Cush Jumbo, The Good Fight (CBS All Access)
Margo Martindale, Sneaky Pete (Amazon)
Chrissy Metz, This Is Us (NBC)
Best Limited Series
American Vandal (Netflix)
Big Little Lies (HBO)
Feud: Bette and Joan (FX)
The Long Road Home (National Geographic)
Best Actor in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series
Jeff Daniels, Godless (Netflix)
Robert De Niro, The Wizard of Lies (HBO)
Ewan McGregor, Fargo (FX)
Jack O’Connell, Godless (Netflix)
Evan Peters, American Horror Story: Cult (FX)
Bill Pullman, The Sinner (USA)
Jimmy Tatro, American Vandal (Netflix)
Like Freddie, Evan Peters did the best of his American Horror Story journey on Cult. It was his best role so far, and it’s the “Maslany effect” all over again – just give this guy the recognition that he deserves!
Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series
Jessica Biel, The Sinner (USA)
Alana Boden, I Am Elizabeth Smart (Lifetime)
Carrie Coon, Fargo (FX)
Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies (HBO)
Jessica Lange, Feud: Bette and Joan (FX)
Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies (HBO)
Best Animated Series
Danger & Eggs
Rick and Morty
If Rick and Morty doesn’t win this one, something is wrong with the world. I’ve seen every episode of each one of them so if Rick doesn’t win, I hope BoJack does.
Best Reality Competition Series
America’s Got Talent
Dancing With the Stars
RuPaul’s Drag Race
The hardest choice for me! I’ve seen all seasons of all the shows (except Chopped) and I’ll be reviewing some of them as you know. I want Project Runway and Rupaul’s to take the crown from The Voice, but I don’t think that is going to happen.
Best Reality Show Host
Ted Allen, Chopped
Tyra Banks, America’s Got Talent
Tom Bergeron, Dancing With the Stars
Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance
Joanna and Chip Gaines, Fixer Upper
RuPaul, RuPaul’s Drag Race
Rupaul’s is one of the best tv hosts I’ve seen in a long time, I hope he wins! My second bet is for Queen Tyra!
The 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards will be broadcasted live (CW) on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, from 8-10 p.m. PT. The show will again take place at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica and will be hosted by Olivia Munn.
