CarterMatt Awards 2017: This year’s categories, rules, and nominations / results schedule

CarterMatt Awards 2017Welcome to the Sixth Annual CarterMatt Awards! Over the years this has become an exciting, fun way for the CarterMatt staff to celebrate a fantastic year in TV and we have every intention of it being just as fun in 2017. The goal here is simple: To recognize some TV favorites across many categories — including many who don’t often get the recognition that they deserve. We’re talking here about everyone from shows, performers, showrunners and the fans. Given that so many of you are responsible for keeping the shows on the air, don’t you deserve some celebration here?

This article is going to be your one-stop shop for all things CarterMatt Awards related throughout the month. We’ve got for you below a full list of this year’s categories (including two new ones — Hero of the Year and Villain of the Year), plus also a schedule as to when some of the nominations for these categories are going to be announced. All nominations will be announced at 4:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Pacific) on the days specified. This way, there is no confusion and you know when a new set of nominations is coming online!

Voting Rules – As in years past, we keep things fairly simple — our polls are located at the bottom of our nomination articles and you can vote however often you’d like. We allow repeat voting, but you may need to clear your cache/browser or use a separate device in order to do so. If you are on mobile and cannot see the poll, scroll to the bottom of the article and click to view the non-AMP version.

Voting begins immediately after the nominations are posted and concludes moments before the results are announced. All results are announced on the days specified below at 4:00 p.m. Eastern. For example, voting for Underrated Show is open from December 1 until December 26, when the results are officially announced at 4:00.

If you’re ever lost for whatever reason, just come back to this page! We’ll add in hyperlinks for new categories and results articles as they are posted.

Happy voting! Thanks for reading CarterMatt over the years and celebrating some of the best that TV has to offer. We’re grateful that you come to us as a source for all of the latest television news and we hope that you will continue reading with us in the new year.
