The Gold Derby Film Awards
are decided by users of this website like YOU. Never mind what those
voters for other awards say is the best film or performance of the year.
Nobody knows the truth better than Gold Derby readers, who are such award nuts that they insist upon bestowing their own kudos.
They were launched in 2002 when winners included “Chicago,” Julianne Moore (“Far From Heaven”), Daniel Day-Lewis (“Gangs of New York”), Meryl Streep (“Adaptation”), and Chris Cooper (“Adaptation”). The awards have continued annually for the past decade, with last year’s winners including “12 Years a Slave,” Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”), Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”), and Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”). For a complete list of all past winners and nominees, click this page in our forums.

technical categories (like film editing, cinematography, original score,
production design, and more). We even ask your opinions on the top
ensemble and best breakthrough performance of 2014.
22 categories will be announced on February 2. You can then vote on the
final winners, with the ultimate results announced just before the
Oscars on Thursday, February 19.January 4, 2015 at 4:16 pm #171148
You can campaign for a SMALL number of favorites in this thread, maybe 5 or 6 total.
If you campaign for more than that, your post will be deleted.January 4, 2015 at 4:20 pm #171149
Boomer, I seem to be running into a slight issue with the voting center. The instructions state to choose three nominees for every category, but when I try to save, a pop-up appears that says I’m only allowed to vote for one nominee in each category. Do you know what the issue is there?January 4, 2015 at 4:44 pm #171150
Thanks for letting me know. All categories should now allow you to select three nominees each.January 4, 2015 at 4:51 pm #171151
Ben Mendelsohn for Best Supporting Actor in Starred Up
Jenny Slate for Best Actress in Obvious Child
Tom Hardy for Best Actor in LockeJanuary 4, 2015 at 4:54 pm #171152
I did notice a slight issue in the Best Actress category. The second Shailene Woodley mention lists the film in question for “The Descendants”, I assume this was supposed to be “The Fault in Our Stars”. I have it there under the assumption that’s so.
FYC PLUG: Also, I’d like to campaign for Stranger by the Lake and Pierre Deladonchamps in Breakthrough Performer, and Ellar Coltrane in Boyhood for Best Actor.January 4, 2015 at 4:55 pm #171153
