    I’ve had this idea for the past couple of weeks, and been making notes about different suggestions for it, but basically, it’s a Gold Derby user vote for some different, fun categories for this years TV season. 

    I’m putting it out there a bit earlier so people can have their say on any other categories they can think of, or to remind people of different shows and actors to be considered for these ‘honours’. 

    Some ideas of categories I’ve had so far include:

    Biggest Emmy Category Fraud
    The ‘It Should Have Been Axed’ Award
    The ‘Why Was It Axed?’ Award
    Best Dramatic Performance in a ‘Comedy’ Series
    Best Comedic Performance in a ‘Drama’ Series
    Best Villain/Anti-Hero
    Best Exit 
    Best On Screen Partnership
    Best Upgraded Character (i.e. from guest to recurring/recurring to main)
    Best New Character in an Existing Series

    Any thoughts on this? I was thinking of having people private message me their ballots for these, with a nominations deadline at some time towards the end of May.

    This kind of reminds me of “The Tubey Awards,” from the old Television Without Pity site. They had tons of these. One of my personal favorites was “Best Performance By An Inanimate Object.”

    A couple of thoughts I’ve had for some of the categories:

    Best Dramatic Performance in a ‘Comedy’ Series:
     Jeffrey Tambor in Transparent – very touching performance, which isn’t comedic, but awards worthy nonetheless
     The Entire Cast of Looking in Looking – again, not comedic, but just a brilliantly written & acted series, full of fantastic performances
     Allison Janney in Mom – this is a comedy, but this season has allowed Janney to show that dramatic side of her, as well as the comedic aspect which shows just how diverse and brilliant an actress she is

    Best Comedic Performance in a Drama Series:
     Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey – sharp wit from Smith, as ever in this series.
     Dylan Baker in The Good Wife – he is just hilarious. Not there to be a serious character, just a wind up merchant, which Baker plays off to sheer brilliance
     Carrie Preston in The Good Wife – if you watch The Good Wife, you know why she deserves to be up for this award

    Most Improved Series
     Brooklyn Nine Nine – I really enjoyed Season 1, but BNN really hit its stride this year, a true ensemble piece where there is no lull in the laughs thanks to the writing & performances
     Looking – again, really hit its stride in a second run. Brilliant writing, one of the best shows on TV this season WHY CANCEL IT HBO??? (FYC for The Why Was It Axed Award too)
