Breaking Bad” won last year’s Best Drama Series prize for the second time in a row and competes again this year for its final batch of episodes, which aired last summer. A third win for the AMC drama would tie the record currently shared by “Lost” and “Mad Men,” which also won three Drama Series prizes.

All of “Breaking Bad’s” 2013 rivals are eligible to compete again this year: “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Homeland,” and “Mad Men.” Will that leave room for freshman shows like “Masters of Sex” or “True Detective“?

Parks and Recreation” is the defending champ for Best Comedy, which it won for the first time last year on its fourth nomination. To retain its title, it will have to defeat its returning 2013 competitors “Louie,” “Modern Family,” and “Veep.” Last year’s remaining nominees “Arrested Development” and “30 Rock” are both off the air.

Could 2012 Best Comedy-winner “Community” capitalize on the available slots? It fell out of favor at the Gold Derby TV Awards last year after NBC ousted showrunner Dan Harmon, but Harmon returned for the series’s fifth season, which turned out to be its last on NBC.

The open slots might also favor hot newcomers like “Silicon Valley,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” or “Orange is the New Black.”

Last year marked the return of two popular categories to the Gold Derby Awards: Best Drama Episode and Best Comedy Episode. And like last year, a preliminary vote by our forum posters has narrowed down the best episodic achievements of the television season to 30 titles apiece. The top six candidates after this stage of voting will be the final nominees.

  1. Julia Roberts deserves an Emmy for her portrayal of any early AIDS researcher. Mark Ruffalo also plays Ned the protagonist without being too preachy or sanctimonious. I am rooting for anyone associated with “The Normal Heart.”

  2. Any chance of you guys including the 3-part Pamela episodes of Louie that aired Monday night for best comedy episode? I just gone done watching them, and they were fantastic! They were definitely on par with last season’s 3-part finale The Late Show. Louis C.K. is so good at making his season finales this beautiful, weird combination of humor, happiness, and lovely sadness. I would also love to see if you could include Pamela Adlon in your guest actress category for comedy. She was great in that episode.

  3. Why is is that The Legend of Korra is not listed in the Animated Program category?? It’s the best animated TV show I’ve seen of the past year and deserves to win Emmy Awards.
