2014 Tyler's Choice Television Awards

Have not really posted as much as I want to, but I am definitely going to make more of a habit of it for at least the rest of the next Oscar season as I will be taking a semester off from my college course. For now, enjoy my choices for the best in television for 2014, and oh man what a great year it was. I went back and forth on whom I want nominated for my awards. So after much deliberation, and without any further ado, here they are:

(Rules: Only 6-7 nominees per category for drama and comedy, 5-6 nominees for Miniseries/TV Movie. Both those categories are conjoined for mine. In addition, True Detective will say in miniseries because I consider it an anthology show, and as such stays in miniseries like American Horror Story.)
