It's that time again: we are collecting suggestions for Tubey categories. Last year's Tubeys are here for context. Please post your suggestions for categories here -- you shouldn't include individual nominations within a category; we'll get to that later.

Since people ask every year: you should not expect that every suggestion is going to be taken. The editors ask for these because you all definitely have good ideas, but please don't take it personally if your suggestion doesn't wind up in the polls. There are typically 80-90 categories, and every year we add a few new ones and drop a few that seem played out or that don't apply.

We want categories that are broad enough that there can be at least 10 nominations, so please don't suggest a category that's too specific.
 
The polling schedule is still being finalized but once the editorial folks have decided on the categories, we'll start asking for specific nominations in each category.

Instead of Best Drama, or Best Scripted Show, I'd like to see a breakdown of Drama, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and Action, so we won't see Mad Men up against Game of Thrones, for example.

I know they're not as fresh in our minds at this time of year, but how about best/worst season premiere in addition to the finales?

 

- Series with the best worldbuilding/continuity.

 

- H!itG award: Favorite actor or actress who's played multiple roles on various shows during the season.

 

- Best recurring animal character. (I can think of at least ten on the shows I watch alone - and not just dogs.)

 

- Nighttime drama that needs to stop acting like a daytime soap.

 

- Best summer show.

 

- Better-than-expected new series.

 

- Most significant character death.

 

- Best import.

 

I could never figure out the villain categories. 'Least Villainous' seems like it's talking about the level of evil, not whether they're an enjoyable character. How about just favorite/least favorite, like it works in other categories?

 

Also, it seems like there's a lot of overlap between 'Least Improved Show' and 'Most Disappointing Season of a Previously Awesome Show'.

  There should also be separate categories for soaps. Besides Best Actor/Actress, there should also be Most Ludicrous Plotline, Most Favorite Character and Least Favorite Character.
