'30 Rock,' 'Mad Men' lead Gold Derby TV Award nominations
The posters in our message boards aren't content just to dish awards bestowed by others -- they insist upon doling out their own. Monday, they unveiled their nominees for the newest batch of Gold Derby TV Awards, and you are invited to join them to determine winners. Voting continues until July 31.
Winners in the comedy lineup in 2008 included "30 Rock" and lead stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, Kristin Chenoweth (best supporting actress, "Pushing Daisies") and Neil Patrick Harris (supporting actor, "How I Met Your Mother"). Drama honorees: "Lost," Glenn Close ("Damages"), Michael C. Hall ("Dexter"), Chandra Wilson (supporting actress, "Grey's Anatomy") and Michael Emerson (supporting actor, "Lost"). All of last year's winners were nominated again in 2009, with the exception of Chandra Wilson.
