3rd Annual GeekTown Awards : The Winners!
Golden Globes, Smolden Globes, that’s what I say… What you really need to know is who won what in the 3rd Annual Geektown Awards, as voted for by you – The lovely Geektowners! 😀
We announced a couple of categories last week as a tease, but now we have the full list of all the winners YOU voted for! Some surprises, some not so surprising, but overall I’d say a good reflection of just how good the past 12 months have been in tv, movies and gaming.
Best New TV Show
Nominees: Constantine, Fargo, Gotham, Penny Dreadful, The 100, The Flash, The Strain, True Detective
Sliver: True Detective
A great selection of shows, but Batman without Batman is proving the most popular with the Geektowners.
Best TV Drama
Nominees: Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, Downton Abbey, Peaky Blinders, The Walking Dead, 24: Live Another Day, Hannibal, True Detective, Fargo, House of Card
Joint Gold: Game of Thrones / The Walking Dead
You found it just impossible to pick between the 2 giants of geek tv from last year, so voted both to share the top slot for best drama!
Best TV Dramadey
Nominees: Elementary, Castle, Orange Is the New Black, Sherlock, Suits, Bones, and Girls.
Sliver: Orange Is The New Black
There’s a rule with these votes… If Sherlock is in a category, it’ll win…
Best TV Comedy
Nominees: Silicon Valley, The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, 2 Broke Girls, Episodes, Veep, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Bronze: How I Met Your Mother
Sliver: Modern Family
Gold: The Big Bang Theory
Big Bang didn’t just win this category, but crushed the competition in a landslide of a win!
Best TV Procedural Drama
Nominees: Elementary, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Bones, Person of Interest, NCIS: LA, How to Get Away with Murder, NCIS, Blue Bloods
Gold: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
It maybe on it’s 15th season, but the original CSI is still the daddy of Procedural Drama!
Best Fantasy & Supernatural Show
Nominees: Game of Thrones, Grimm, The Walking Dead, Penny Dreadful, Da Vinci’s Demons, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals
Sliver: The Walking Dead
Gold: Game of Thrones
Unlike earlier, there was a rather more definite split between Gold and Silver this time around with GoT nabbing the Gold.
Best Scifi & Superheroes Show
Nominees: The Flash, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Under the Dome, Doctor Who, The Last Ship, The 100, Defiance, The Strain
Sliver: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Gold: Doctor Who
Re: Doctor Who… Same rule applies as to Sherlock. If it’s in play, it wins!
British TV Show of the Year
Nominees: Peaky Blinders, The Fall, Line of Duty, Happy Valley, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, Derek
Bronze: The Fall
Sliver: Downton Abbey
Gold: Doctor Who

Bronze: Martin Freeman Fargo

The Dinklage walks away with the top prize, and well deserved too. Tyrion is awesome!
Best Female Performance in a TV Show
Nominees: Maisie Williams Game of Thrones, Taylor Schilling Orange is the New Black, Claire Danes Homeland, Robin Wright House of Cards, Anna Paquin True Blood, Lena Headey Game of Thrones, Tatiana Maslany Orphan Black
Bronze: Lena Headey Game of Thrones

So happy to see Claire Danes take this. It’s a stunning performance in an excellent show!
Video Game of The Year
Nominees: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age:Inquisition, Destiny, The Walking Dead Game: Season 2, Watch Dogs, South Park: The Stick of Truth, The Wolf Among Us
Bronze: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Sliver: The Walking Dead Game: Season 2
Although i’m disappointed Dragon Age:Inquisition didn’t rank (i think due to it being released so late in the year), Destiny is a fun FPS game.
Movie Of The Year
Nominees: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Gone Girl, Godzilla, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Lego Movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Edge of Tomorrow

I AM GROOOT!

Nominees: Spectre (James Bond), The Hateful Eight, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars : The Force Awakens, Assassin’s Creed, Jurassic World, Terminator: Genisys, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Ant-Man
Bronze: The Avengers: Age of Ultron
Sliver: Jurassic World
Gold: Star Wars : The Force Awakens
To be honest, I don’t think we needed to do this category, as it was fairly obvious what would win! Interesting to see Jurassic World take Silver over The Avengers though!
And that’s the lot! Thanks to everyone that voted this year, and I look forward to seeing what 2015 brings! If you have any comments on the winners (or losers) feel free to leave them below! 🙂
