First of all, I'd like to say thank you to the twenty two people who nominated and the twenty people who voted. Together we've generated a list of winners which are arguably more worthy than those the Emmys claim are the best of TV. Congratulations GRcade we're better than the Emmys! In fact there was literally only one category where we came up with the same winner as the Emmys did but after a late vote that's changed.


Now to the awards!




As a means to facilitate discussion (and because I'm still writing the winning posts), I'm not going to announce all the awards at once but I will include how many votes each winner got with each reveal. In the event of the tie, I will then declare winner whomever got the most nominations. If there is still a tie, I'll either choose my favourite of the two as winner or just make all of them joint winners.


EDIT:

The full list of winners:

Best Drama:
Breaking Bad
Best Comedy: Curb your Enthusiasm
Best Dramedy: Men of a Certain Age

I voted for Community because the sheer invention and quality over 24 episodes is incredible. Curb was the best it's ever been though and probably had a higher laugh per minute ratio
