Will this year bring the Gold Derby TV Awards full circle? 2013 marked the long-awaited return of “Arrested Development,”
which won Gold Derby’s first two prizes for Best Comedy Series in 2004
and 2005. Its return could face off in the top category this year
against a pair of recent farewells: “The Office,” which holds the record for the most Comedy Series victories (three: 2006, 2007, 2009), and “30 Rock,” also a previous winner (2008).
Every winner of Best Comedy is eligible to compete in this year’s race:
in addition to “Arrested,” “30 Rock,” and “The Office,” “Community” (2012 winner) and “Modern Family” (2010, 2011) are in contention. Last year’s nominees “Happy Endings,” “Louie,” and “Parks and Recreation” could also return.
hopes to defend its Best Drama title for the first half of its final
season, which aired last summer. The gritty AMC series won for the first
time last year, ending the three-year winning streak of fellow AMC
drama “Mad Men,” which is tied with “Lost” for the most Best Drama victories at the Gold Derby Awards.
All of “Breaking Bad’s” rivals from last year could also return: “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” and “Homeland” as well as “Mad Men.” Do new shows like “House of Cards,” “The Americans,” or “The Newsroom” also deserve to break through?
This year you can also vote in two additional categories: Best Drama
Episode and Best Comedy Episode. A preliminary vote of our forum posters
narrowed down the best episodic achievements of the 2012-2013
television season to 30 titles apiece. The top six candidates after this
stage of voting will be the final nominees.
Vote for your favorites now and edit your ballot until July 12.
Nominees will be announced on July 16, two days before Emmy nominations.June 14, 2013 at 9:58 am #280682
In the predictions center, it is now in the drop-down menu. Look on the left side of your screen where it says Gold Derby TV Awards with a blue star.
Feel free to campaign for a very small number of your favorites in this thread.June 14, 2013 at 10:01 am #280683
We decided to only allow you to vote for 3 nominees in each category to reward passionate support. It happens way too often that we have some people or shows we really want to make it and fill out the other slots with ones we just like (not love).
This should provide us with an even better slate of nominees across the board. Every category will ulitimately still have 6 nominees, but they will now all be nominees with a lots of passion behind them.June 14, 2013 at 10:06 am #280684
Boomer, thank you thank you thank you, for only allowing us to vote three per category. The Gold Derby TV Awards back at The Envelope produced some excellent results, but the nominees at GoldDerby.com have been quite lame. No one wants to have space on their ballot, so people just fill them with people that are in the Emmy conversation, even if those people are not the most deserving.
If I could make a suggestion: no ties, please. Six people category is more than enough.June 14, 2013 at 10:23 am #280685
“Derek Luke deserves a shout out for his excellent
guest work on The Americans. It’s a shame he has practically no chance
of recognition for it.” — A Person in the guest acting watch thread
“2) Derek Luke, The Americans (FX)”
— Teproc’s fantasy nominees in the guest actor category
“Was Derek Luke submitted anywhere?”
— Cobalt Blue asking about the Emmy ballot
“Ciaran Hinds had one scene, ONE SCENE, what in hell is
he doing on this ballot? If he is nominated and take the place of
someone like The American’s Derek Luke I’m gonna be so pissed,
—Denis reacting to the Emmy ballot
National Board of Review/Independent Spirit/Satellite award winner Derek Luke would be at the top of my guest actor ballot for The Americans and I think that others would vote for him too; can he be added to the predictions center? Feel free to delete this post.June 14, 2013 at 10:38 am #280686
I honestly thought Derek Luke was in our Emmy predictions center and also eligible for our TV Awards. He will be added within the next few minutes.June 14, 2013 at 10:53 am #280687
Please include Adventure Time in Animated Series, please.June 14, 2013 at 11:21 am #280688

It’s a good thing we only had 3 choices cuz there were a number of categories with multiple of my personal choices missing. Like only half of my T6 comedy supporting actors were choices.
I found it weird that the 3 MM choices included 2 unaired, and the 3rd is only my 3rd-favorite of the eps aired so far.June 14, 2013 at 11:31 am #280690
Pass. There’s no opportunity to vote for nominees from Continuum. So Gold Derby will stay in lockstep with the Emmys’ discriminatory practice against international productions that nevertheless air on American TV networks.June 14, 2013 at 11:40 am #280691
I just noticed “Two Imposters” from Boardwalk Empire isn’t on Drama Episode. Wow, how did that happen? How did that not get in the top 30? Weird. I know a lot of people here don’t like (or even hate) the show, but I still thought it had enough support for the episode to get at least top 30. I’m schocked, I’m not even a fan of the show usually, but that was a truly great epsiode.June 14, 2013 at 12:08 pm #280693

Do you watch anything besides Continuum? There’s so many great shows now . . .June 14, 2013 at 12:09 pm #280694
Is Tatiana Maslany not in Performer of the Year while the likes of Bill Hader is? Urm.
