As of this writing 1,300 Gold Derby users have voted for the Gold Derby TV Decade Awards to decide the best TV programs and performances from 2010-2019. If you haven’t cast your ballot yet, you’ve only got a few days left, so visit our predictions center here and do it now. You need to be signed up for a free Gold Derby account to vote; if you haven’t yet, you can do so here using a Facebook, Twitter, Google or email account. The deadline is Halloween: Thursday, October 31. And even if you have already voted, you can come back to edit your votes as often as you like until the last day. None of your votes are final until the polls officially close.
Our decade nominations (see the complete list here) were decided by our users from lists of hundreds of shows and actors who competed at the Emmys, Gold Derby Awards, or both in the past 10 years. Winners are being decided by a preferential ballot: simply rank up to three nominees in each category. Your number-one choice gets three points. Your number-two choice gets two points. And your number-three choice gets one point. Whichever nominee gets the most points wins. You can vote in as many or as few categories as you wish.
“Game of Thrones” is the most nominated program at these awards with 12 bids including Best Drama Series of the Decade. “Breaking Bad” is close behind with 10, and then “Mad Men” with nine. Among comedies, there’s a four-way tie with “Fleabag,” “Parks and Recreation,” “30 Rock” and “Veep” receiving eight nominations apiece.
The last Decade Awards (2000-2009) were led by the supernatural thriller “Lost,” which was named Best Drama for those 10 years. “Arrested Development” won Best Comedy. And the late, great Mike Nichols swept the long form categories with his “Wit” taking Best TV Movie and his “Angels in America” winning Best Limited Series and all four decade acting awards. Will any show this year dominate just as decisively? That’s up to you.
