Have you voted for the Gold Derby TV Decade Awards yet? Unlike the Emmys, we give out prizes to the best achievements of the decade in addition to the best of each year as decided by Gold Derby’s registered users. As of this writing more than 1,200 savvy Derbyites have made their picks for the greatest shows and performances from 2010-2019. But you only have until Sunday, October 13, to submit your picks. After that the nominees will be announced on October 15, when you’ll get the chance to vote for the winners.
In our yearly awards for 2019, “Game of Thrones” made history by winning Best Drama Series for the fourth time, setting a record for the most prizes ever in the top category. That might be a sign that it’ll be our users favorite drama of the decade too, and the fact that it ended its run so recently keeps it fresh in mind. But “Breaking Bad” won three times this decade (2012-2014), and before that “Mad Men” won from 2009-2011, and they were just as integral in defining this decade of television.
“Lost” was named the Best Drama Series of the Decade for 2000-2009 after having won the yearly award three times (2005, 2007-2008). Meanwhile, “Arrested Development” won Best Comedy Series of the Decade despite its short-lived three-season run on FOX (it was revived by Netflix in 2013, so it’s eligible in multiple categories this decade too). But our voters spread the wealth over the last 10 years, giving two Best Comedy prizes apiece to “Modern Family,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Veep,” so the race to be the decade’s supreme laffer may be wide open.
