Gold Derby TV Awards 2019 nominations: ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Veep’ lead, while ‘Pose’ is the top new show of the year

Game of Thrones” didn’t get nearly as many Gold Derby TV Award nominations as it got Emmy nominations, but that’s only because we have far fewer categories. When our contenders were announced the HBO epic fantasy series still dominated with 13 bids, more than any other program. In fact, it’s the only program this year to score nominations in the double digits. Elsewhere, “Veep” was the top comedy with eight nominations, while “Pose” picked up seven noms, the most for any freshman show. Scroll down to see the complete list or watch our video announcement above. Then visit our predictions center to vote for the winners right now. You have until September 13 to make your picks. Then the winners will be announced on September 17.

These nominations were voted on by about 1,500 registered Gold Derby users who made their picks by ranking their top three favorites in each category with their top choice receiving three points, their second choice receiving two points, and their third choice receiving one point. The highest point-getters became the nominees. But when picking the winners, there’s no preferential voting. You simply have to pick your one favorite in each category. Whoever gets the most votes wins.

“Thrones” is nominated for Best Drama Series, and it picked up a whopping nine acting bids for leads Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke; supporting players Alfie Allen, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey and Maisie Williams; and guest Carice van Houten. That’s almost an exact match of the show’s Emmy nominees for acting; the only Emmy contender who was left out of our lineup was supporting actress Sophie Turner, who landed just outside of the top six in our voting.

“Thrones” is joined in the Best Drama Series race by the aforementioned “Pose,” “Better Call Saul” (five nominations), “Killing Eve” (five nominations), “This is Us” (five nominations), “Bodyguard” (three nominations) and “Homecoming” (three nominations).

If “Thrones” wins Best Drama Series, that would be its fourth victory, which would set a new record for the most wins ever in the top category. The show also has two nominations for Best Drama Episode (“A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” and “The Long Night“); if it wins that prize it’ll stand alone as the second biggest winner in that category with three victories. The show previously won for “The Rains of Castamere” (2013) and “Mother’s Mercy” (2015). The all-time record-holder is “Lost,” which took Best Drama Episode a whopping five times out of its six seasons.

“Veep” leads the way among laffers with eight nominations. It won Best Comedy Series the last two times it was eligible (2016 and 2017) and is looking to tie “The Office” for the all-time record of three wins. But it’s going to be a close contest against “Fleabag,” “The Good Place” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which are breathing down its neck with seven nominations apiece. Rounding out the Best Comedy category are “Barry” (five nominations), “Schitt’s Creek” (three nominations) and “Russian Doll” (two nominations).

There’s a three-way tie for the most nominated long-form program: “Chernobyl,” “Sharp Objects” and “When They See Us” have five nominations each; they’re up against “Fosse/Verdon” (three nominations) and “The Haunting of Hill House” (two nominations) for Best Limited Series.

The Gold Derby Awards also honor the overall best performers and breakthrough performers of the year. The nominees in those categories are nominated for their entire bodies of television work from the TV season and not for any one particular program, though in some cases there was just the one performance from the year that got them their nom. For Performer of the Year, the nominees are Amy Adams, Patricia Arquette, Bill Hader, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Billy Porter and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. For Breakthrough Performer of the Year, the nominees are Asa Butterfield, Hannah Gadsby, Jharrel Jerome, Joey King, MJ Rodriguez and Eliza Scanlen.
