Globe voters were scattered this year with their approach. For the comedy categories, they showed once again how much they like to honor new programs with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and its star Andy Samberg both winning. On the other hand, they rewarded “Breaking Bad” and Bryan Cranston with drama trophies for the final season, although they had never once rewarded the show before.
Even so, six of our Users — GMC, johnnygc, GCT1899, nkb325, Lindsey, and Stephen — scored best with an impressive 73%. Because GMC earned the most game points (7032) wisely using the 500 and 200 point bets, he establishes himself as winner of our reader contest. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Certificate.
