Help Eric Choose the TV Critics Awards!
I'm sure you've probably watched awards show in the past and felt a rising sense of frustration as the wrong folks walked away with the big honors.
What follows is the ballot circulated to our more than 200 members today, with two of my own choices filled in for every category. I've got two weeks to fill this puppy out and get it back to the TCA powers that be. If I get a decent consensus in the comments on this space, I will give you guys the third spot in every category!
