    Emmy ballots were released on June 9, but the awards voting that really counts begins today. You can now vote for nominees for the 11th Annual Gold Derby TV Awards.

    If you’re already registered at Gold Derby, cast your ballot by clicking here and then clicking on the Gold Derby TV Awards Nominations 2014 button in the “Choose an Event” box. To vote in each of our 28 categories, select your top three candidates and move them from the left to the right column in order of your preference.

    If you’re not registered, do so for free here. Or log in with your Facebook account. And click here to see the complete history of our awards.

    Breaking Bad” won last year’s Best Drama Series prize for the second time in a row and competes again this year for its final batch of episodes, which aired last summer. A third win for the AMC drama would tie the record currently shared by “Lost” and “Mad Men,” which also won three Drama Series prizes.

    All of “Breaking Bad’s” 2013 rivals are eligible to compete again this year: “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Homeland,” and “Mad Men.” Will that leave room for freshman shows like “Masters of Sex” or “True Detective“?

    Parks and Recreation” is the defending champ for Best Comedy, which it won for the first time last year on its fourth nomination. To retain its title, it will have to defeat its returning 2013 competitors “Louie,” “Modern Family,” and “Veep.” Last year’s remaining nominees “Arrested Development” and “30 Rock” are both off the air.

    Could 2012 Best Comedy-winner “Community” capitalize on the available slots? It fell out of favor at the Gold Derby TV Awards last year after NBC ousted showrunner Dan Harmon, but Harmon returned for the series’s fifth season, which turned out to be its last on NBC.

    The open slots might also favor hot newcomers like “Silicon Valley,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” or “Orange is the New Black.”

    Last year marked the return of two popular categories to the Gold Derby Awards: Best Drama Episode and Best Comedy Episode. And like last year, a preliminary vote by our forum posters has narrowed down the best episodic achievements of the television season to 30 titles apiece. The top six candidates after this stage of voting will be the final nominees.

    You can vote for your favorites now and edit your ballot until July 4. Nominees will be announced on July 8, two days before Emmy nominations.

    You can campaign for a very small number of your favorites in this thread. More than that, and we’ll delete your post.

    Working on trying to fix the comedy supporting actor category. Give me a little while to find out the trouble.

    Very few problems.

    • Why is True Detective not also available for Miniseries?
    • No American Dad! for Animated Series?

    Because the producers and HBO decided it was a drama series. With the only exception being variety performers (which receive their own category with us), we go along with whatever placements are on the Emmy ballot.

    BTW, the comedy supporting actor category is now active. I have also added a few names/titles that were accidentally left out.

    Since Continuum is on the Emmy ballot, Boomer, and since it’s been nominated for 57 awards up north with 18 wins, please add its name to Drama Series and the following to your Gold Derby categories:

    Victor Webster-Actor
    Erik Knudsen -Actor
    Rachel Nichols-Actress
    Roger Cross-Supporting Actor
    Simon Barry-Writing (Second Time)
    Pat Williams-Directing (Second Time)
