    The TV nominations are crazy town all over the map. No Mad Men but The Newsroom and SMASH?! Hayden Panetierre? What is going on.

  • Scott M

    The smash nomination is a misprint right?

  • marcos

    shocked at hayden panetierre nomination

  • CenterGravity

    Louis C.K. (“Louie” is the name of hi FX show)

  • CenterGravity

    his

  • THE OLD MAN

    Maggie Smith in multiple cat’s for film, also nominated for DA–nice

    Julianna & Archie actress/sup act + Jessica Lange–double nice

    No noms for GA? Well I’ll be!

  • Steven

    The days of “Mad Men” having all the top nominations… I believe is over!

    With 17 nominations at the Emmys (this year) and didn’t win a single one… that tells you something.

    The new shows like “Homeland”, “Smash”, The Newsroom” are pushing “Mad Men” out of the running.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Best Original Song For Motion Picture

    ADELE “Skyfall” which has now sold over “1.9″ million stateside

    GO ADELE!

  • JR

    In the USA, “Skyfall” has sold almost 1.1 million- not sure where the 1.9m figure comes from. In any event, good for a Bond theme.

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ JR

    In today’s Billboard

  • ABCFanatic2012

    Way to go NASHVILLE!

  • Networkman

    I believe Kerry Washington should of gotten a nomination for Scandal as well. IMO, that is a snub. And once again Revenge is shut out. Madeline Stowe should of been a lock over Hayden Panettiere for best supporting actress. And Smash being nominated for best comedy is a joke. Once again, there is no love for Community. Lastly, John Noble for Fringe is not given the recognition he deserves as well.

    The movies category is tough this year. There were alot of excellent films making the competition stiff. It is going to be hard to predict winners, even in the acting categories. I have so much love and respect for Sally Field. It would be great to see her as the frontrunner even though I feel it may be Anne Hathaway’s year.

  • Dan

    I dont what some of you are talking about. Hayden is fantastic on Nashville. She deserves the nomination.

  • Khan

    so damn predictable, honestly

  • Nick

    Yes!!!! Someone finally realized how good The Newsroom is!
