Awards Buzz

It’s that time of year again, red carpets to be rolled out soon and shiny awards to be given away. In the meantime, we can look at the nominees list, discuss and share opinions, and even place bets. Here at FD we also got (slightly) swept away by the nominations tide and couldn’t resist the opportunity to throw in some food for thought.

Are there any surprise nominations? Has anyone been missed out? Can one make predictions from both nominee lists? (find the 5 differences game)
