    Welcome to the 1st Golden Gormaganders! Special Thanks to @XCV330 for coming up with the name! We'll be holding the Golden Gormaganders every year. In the future we'll start on July 1st, but this time we'll go early and start accepting nominations on June 27th. It's close enough and it's our first go-around the block. ;)

    You can nominate something or someone for each category, but you can only vote in each category once.

    You also don't have to vote for every category at the same time. Just so long as you vote for everything you intend to vote for by the July 14th @ 11:59pm EDT.

    After July 14th, we'll hold the actual Awards Ceremony where people will be able to vote on the Top Five Nominees for each Category.

    Any category that didn't receive at least five nominations in this thread will not be part of the Awards Ceremony. It doesn't matter if five people nominate the same thing but five people have to nominate something.

    In the event of a tie: @Succubint, @Orac, and I will decide what will become the final five nominations for each Category.

    To Recap the Rules
    1. You can only nominate ONCE per Category.
    2. You don't have vote for every category all at once.
    3. Once you make a nomination you CANNOT change your Nomination. What does that mean? If I see that whatever you nominate has been edited, then ALL of your nominations will be disqualified. If there's a typo, leave it.

    With that out of the way, have at it, and have fun!

    Thanks! It's better this way too. Forward compatibility. With all the new productions coming up on the TV end, we want a title that's broad enough to eventually accommodate more than just Discovery.
