You don’t have to be an Emmy voter to feel like you’ve been undulated by For Your Consideration ads the past few weeks. There are many, many great TV shows vying for the attention of Emmy voters, but they often don’t get the recognition they deserve from the TV Academy.
Therefore, we decided to come up with our own Emmys Dream Ballot, recognizing the shows and performances we’ve enjoyed the most this past season. Twenty-two of the Young Folks staffers took a survey voting for what they considered the best shows and performances. Those with the highest number of votes made our dream nominee list. As with anything voted on by a small group of people, this is just a general reflection of an eclectic group’s taste in television. There are shows like Orange Is the New Black, Rectify, The Americans, Outlander, and many more that almost edged their way in but didn’t make the cut. That doesn’t take away from how much several of us love those shows and wouldn’t mind seeing them nominated.
