What’s the difference between them? Just don’t get it.
– If you are one of their creators, what’s the difference in concept?
– If you are one of the useres, how do you vote differently?July 11, 2014 at 4:57 pm #322889
this is probably arbitrary but the way I look at it is that dream ballot is what I really want to win, and goldderby award is what I think probably should win. For example, I have Parks and Rec first on my dream ballot. I am fully aware that this was not near its best season, it was a little off actually, but during its prime it was so good and it deserves at least one series trophy imo, even if it’s for its worst season. But as I said I’m fully aware it was not that great a season, and even though I think a show like Veep at its best is not as good as P&R at its best, the current 3rd season fo Veep is better than the 7th season of P&R, so I have that first for the GoldDerby awards. I don’t know if this makes sense, but its how i rationalize it to make them a little differentJuly 11, 2014 at 5:26 pm #322890
^An editor might jump in an answer this, cause I think many people don´t know and each goes with their own way to look at it. I personally have no idea…July 12, 2014 at 3:14 am #322891
I see them as the same, just with different categories/category placement.
With the Goldderby awards, they get to put things in the “right” categories, whereas the Dream Emmy is all about simulating the Emmys, just with different voters.July 12, 2014 at 4:08 am #322892
yeah basically for the dream emmys is how you would vote if you are an emmy voter. and also if you see how the nominations and winners are determined is different for both the dream emmys and goldderby award. so for dream emmys, it’s people who you want to see win the emmys probably. amy poehler has already won a goldderby award so you might be inclined to spread the wealth but maybe you might want to see her get the emmy in the dream ballot.
at least, this is how i interpret it. hehJuly 12, 2014 at 8:08 pm #322893
In my case, I think is more strategic. In the Goldderby Awards, I vote for my favorites, even though it’s maybe impossible that the show I’m putting is nominated. In the Dream Ballot, I combine that with more real possibilities. For example, I had Clark Gregg for the Goldderby Awards, but not in my Dream Ballot.July 13, 2014 at 6:07 am #322894
I just vote for my personal favorites in both….. If I were an Emmy voter (a boy can dream), I think I would do the same thing… Simply vote for what I watch, what I love, and the performances that I find most moving.
The difference (for me) is that the Dream Ballot is more like a ‘Fantasy Football League’, where this message board community can literally go whichever way WE want, and it’s just fun with no boundaries really…and based on the real categories at the Emmys.
I think of the Gold Derby TV Awards as a bit more prestigious than the Dream Ballot as it technically is a real award…… And when voting for nominees, we (the voters) have to be choosier, narrowing it down to 3. Also with different categories like episode, breakthrough, performer of the year….. it really is an entirely separate thing. But I vote the same way.
They both differ than how we vote for predictions of course…. which is about trying to get inside the head of actual Emmy voters and guess what the hell they are going to pick…… Occasionally predicting shows/performers I don’t even watch or understand the acclaim at all just to say…….. I WAS RIGHT!

I understood the difference between the Dream Ballot and the Gold Derby TV Awards during the nominations phase. For the Gold Derby TV Awards, you could only vote for three because the goal was to put out our own awards as a collective. The Dream Ballot was about what you specifically wish were the nominations. What I do not understand is why the second round of the Dream Ballot uses the results of the first round instead of doing what the Oscars Dream Ballot did and allow you to rank the actual nominees.July 14, 2014 at 2:54 pm #322896
Interesting. I was thinking of the difference primarily as just that you can vote for only three in the Goldderby Awards but with the Dream Ballot, you were allowed to fill up the category. Well, that and I was more inclined to vote for the Goldderby Awards because it’ll lead to a real award, versus the Emmy Dream Ballot, which I missed the deadline for but didn’t really mind.
