If Facebook mentions mattered to the Academy, “Game of Thrones” would beat “Breaking Bad,” “House of Cards,” etc. for Outstanding Drama Series, and “Orange Is the New Black” would top “The Big Bang Theory,” “Modern Family,” et al. for Comedy Series.

Also, Kevin Spacey would upset Matthew McConaughey for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, with Kerry Washington besting Spacey’s co-star Robin Wright in the actress category.

Finally, Louis CK would bring home an Outstanding Comedy Actor trophy instead of Ricky Gervais, while Melissa McCarthy would take the gold over Amy Poehler.
