Picking up two nominations for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made For Television for Lady Gaga, American Horror Story: Hotel has had us talking about everything from the cast to the storyline and the quite out there characters. Lady Gaga delivers an incredible performance, showing us she’s more than capable to hold her own not only in the music industry but within the acting industry too.

His second nomination for his role in The Good Wife, will Alan Cumming take the award for Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series, Limited Series or TV Movie in 2016? Only time will tell!

Downton Abbey of course picked up a nomination, this time for Supporting actress in a TV series, limited series or TV movie for Joanne Froggatt. Downton Abbey is always a fan favourite with a dedicated following to rival any other.
Inside Out (currently available to rent on BoxOffice)
Fun for the whole family, Inside Out is nominated for Best Motion Picture – Animated and we’re not surprised. Delving into the topic of human emotions and how they effect us in day-to-day activities, this film delivers a heartwarming story of how we should be true to ourselves and that having varied feelings is normal. In our 2016 predictions, we tipped this movie off to win in the category.
