'Glee' and 'Modern Family' lead Gold Derby TV Award nominations

June 29, 2010 |  7:37 am

Over the past few weeks, our forums posters have been nominating their favorite TV shows and programs from the 2009-10 season for the Gold Derby TV Awards. Voters have until Aug. 6 to vote for the final winner in each category.

Two freshman shows lead the pack: "Glee" with 13 nominations and "Modern Family" with 11, followed by the final season of "Lost" with 10 and "Mad Men" with 10. Fired NBC host Conan O'Brien received three nominations (variety series, variety performance and performer of the year). Although eligible, two of last year's winners ("The Office" for comedy series and Neil Patrick Harris for comedy supporting actor) were not even nominated in those categories this year.

We have been holding these awards since 2004.  Special thanks to Chris "Boomer" Beachum, Andrew Pickett, Robert Licuria and Matt Noble for helping to count ballots.  Below, this year's nominees. To vote for the winners, register in our forums by clicking on the link marked "Login/Join."  After registering, go to Boomer's profile here, then click the link to "send a private message" and send him your votes that way.

Modern Family is awesome!

Two nominations from the same show for "BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMER OF THE YEAR". That really says something.

Eric Stonestreet to win, Ty Burrell to place.
