We’re wrapping up another Emmy season, but we’re not quite done with television awards yet. Today is the day for you to vote on the Gold Derby TV Decade Awards nominations for 2010 through 2019! Jump into our event now, where you can make your selections in 30 categories. You can come back as often as you like to edit your ballot until nominations voting closes on Sunday, October 13. Pick up to 5 contenders per category and rank them from 1st to 5th place in order of preference. Your first place choice gets 5 points. Second place gets 4 points. And so on until your 5th place choice gets 1 point.
Every single TV show and performer from the past decade couldn’t become options on the ballot, so here is how it works. Any nominee at the Emmy Awards or our own Gold Derby TV Awards for each of these years is eligible. Because there are several anomalies, let’s discuss those below:
Shows are eligible that aired from January 1, 2010, through May 31, 2019. Be warned, though, that some exceptional programs aired just a few episodes or maybe one season in this decade (like “Lost” or “Desperate Housewives”), so they had many nominations and wins in the prior decade.
Some programs were nominated in multiple genres. For those that became regular series after originally competing as limited or miniseries (like “Downton Abbey”), we moved them there.
We decided to place “American Horror Story” in limited series, but for the anthology series as a whole and not for any one particular season. We also left “Luther” in the limited category. We moved “Sherlock” into the limited category from Best TV Movie, since the series will be considered its entirety and not for one specific film. Each anthology show is listed as a limited series (e.g. “True Detective,” “American Crime”). However, “Big Little Lies” has already competed as a drama at the Producers Guild of America Awards after announcing its second season during its inaugural awards run in December 2017, so we decided it should only be eligible as a drama (even though its second season is not eligible for these awards).
A performer who competed in multiple categories for the same role was bumped up in almost every case. If they had been guest and supporting, they are now supporting. If they had been supporting and lead, they are now lead. If they became a regular cast member (despite a guest nomination), they were moved into supporting.
Episode of the Decade candidates are strictly from our own annual Gold Derby TV Awards nominees. The same rule goes for Performer of the Decade and Ensemble of the Decade candidates. We did add in several of the talk show hosts as performer contenders since they have had lengthy careers throughout the past 10 years.
There is a separate Variety Performer category that removes those previous Emmy and Gold Derby nominees from the comedy categories. It also includes the main hosts and stars from top variety sketch and variety talk contenders.
And if you’re wondering, here are some of the winners from our previous Gold Derby TV Decade Awards from 2000-2009:
DRAMA SERIES: “Lost”
DRAMA ACTRESS: Edie Falco (“The Sopranos”)
DRAMA ACTOR: James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”)

Me seeing Dexter “The Getaway” as an option for Drama Episode and having to relive that heartbreak all over again…
For clarification, we should be considering the seasons of said show that aired in this decade, correct? For example, just the revamp of Arrested Development would not get my vote, but the entire series would. The same goes for the seasons of the Office airing post 2010 rather than considering the entire series.September 20, 2019 at 10:35 am #1203088969
