"Freak Show" contends for Best Movie/Miniseries, Best Movie/Mini Actor (Evan Peters), and Best Movie/Mini Actress (Jessica Lange). It also swept the supporting categories, taking seven out of the 12 available slots, for actors Michael Chiklis, John Carroll Lynch and Finn Wittrock, and actresses Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson.

Next in line among longform programs are "Olive Kitteridge" with five nominations and "Bessie" with three. Rounding out the Best Movie/Miniseries contest are "American Crime," "The Honorable Woman" and "24: Live Another Day," all of which have two bids apiece.

"Parks and Rec's" nine citations include Best Comedy Series (which it won in 2013), Best Comedy Actress (Amy Poehler, who won from 2011-2013), Best Comedy Supporting Actor (Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt), Best Comedy Guest Actor (Ben Schwartz), Best Comedy Guest Actress (Megan Mullally) and a pair of bids for Best Comedy Episode ("Leslie and Ron" and the series finale, "One Last Ride").

Also well-represented among comedies are "Modern Family" and newcomer "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" with seven nods apiece. "Veep" follows with six. "The Comeback" and "Transparent" have three.

Though it was mostly snubbed by the TV academy, the CW's acclaimed freshman series "Jane the Virgin" receives a Best Comedy Series nomination from Gold Derby, along with Best Comedy Actress for Gina Rodriguez, who also contends for Breakthrough Performer of the Year.

There's an opening for Best Drama Series now that "Breaking Bad" is off the air. The AMC crime drama won the top prize for the last three years in a row, and now there are several shows jockeying for position. Tied with seven nominations each are "Game of Thrones," three-time Best Drama champ "Mad Men" (2009-2011) and last year's Best Comedy victor "Orange is the New Black," which makes a successful move to the dramatic races.

Those three face off in the Best Drama contest against "The Americans," "Better Call Saul," "The Good Wife" and "House of Cards."

Though Gold Derby's users agreed with the Emmys on several top contenders, we recognized some stars who were overlooked by the TV academy, including Sam Heughan ("Outlander"), Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins ("Justified"), Carrie Coon ("The Leftovers"), Constance Wu ("Fresh Off the Boat"), Jonathan Groff and Lauren Weedman ("Looking") and Cory Michael Smith ("Olive Kitteridge"), to name just a few.

Nominated for Performer of the Year are Viola Davis, Jon Hamm, Taraji P. Henson, Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer and Jeffrey Tambor. Poehler is the only past winner in contention, having won in 2012.
