2016 ACCA TV Nominations: FX’s ‘People v O.J. Simpson’ Leads with 10 Nominations, Sophie Turner and Bruce Campbell Surprise Too!

3

If you listened to the latest episode of Circuit Breaker, you heard the announcement of the Awards Circuit Community Awards for Television.  FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson” led the fray with ten nominations including Best Limited Series.  Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” was 2nd in nomination tally with seven including a double dose in Supporting Actress for Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane.  HBO’s “Game of Thrones” landed six nods including a Best Supporting Actress mention for Sophie Turner who missed out on an Emmy nomination earlier this month.

The Awards Circuit readers also gave mentions to Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” Netflix’s “Jessica Jones,” the CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” and HBO’s “The Leftovers” in various and surprising places.

The official ballots will open later today and will remain open until Sunday.  Winners will be announced on the next episode of Circuit Breaker.

The Awards Circuit Community Awards have been a staple of the website for more than seven years.  Each year, the readers vote on the very best in film and television.  During the Oscar off-season, we get the opportunity to go back in time and vote on past Oscar years.  Next in line is ACCA 1994, which will open by Tuesday next week.  That was the year of “Forrest Gump” vs. “Pulp Fiction” vs. “The Shawshank Redemption.”  Our own Alan French gave some recommendations and places to do your homework as ballots get ready to open.
