The 2016-17 television season has been one of the greatest ever for anthologies and limited series. And now you can help decide what is the Best Limited Series of the year. It’s time to cast your vote for nominees for the 14th Annual Gold Derby TV Awards, honoring the best TV during the eligibility period of June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017.
At last year’s ceremony, we had a tie between “Fargo” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” for this category. They both took down nominees “All the Way,” “American Crime,” “Roots,” and “Show Me a Hero.” They joined these past category winners in the history of the Gold Derby TV Awards: “Olive Kitteridge” (2015), “Fargo” (2014), “Behind the Candelabra” (2013), “American Horror Story” (2012), “Mildred Pierce” (2011), “The Pacific” (2010), “Grey Gardens” (2009), “John Adams” (2008), “Prime Suspect 7: The Final Act” (2007), “Bleak House” (2006), “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers” (2005), and “Angels in America” (2004). Note that some years had movies and limited series/miniseries combined into one category.

American Horror Story: Roanoke
Big Little Lies
