Community Homeland Awards
NBC / Showtime

Ah, awards.  What, with all the major series taking their break for the season, what’s left to do but keep talking about the, or hurl awards at them?  While the Emmys slowly gear up, both the Television Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalist’s association have prepped their choices for their respective award ceremonies.  Who’s likely to be the big winners?
