The Best in TV This Year, as Chosen By You Guys

The Best in TV This Year, as Chosen By You Guys

We'll always remember this television season as the year of the sleeper hit—the year a wacky mole-girl comedy burrowed its way into our heart; the year the Girl most likely to flail turned things around; the year Empire came out of nowhere to make the world its, well, empire. And that was just the beginning of the surprises, twists, hookups, and performances that made TV a true joy to watch—and to analyze endlessly with you guys. Read on to find out whom you chose as the best, brightest, and ballsiest of the 2014-15 season[1].

The Girls' Girl We Related to Most This Season: Shoshanna
Well, of course! Who wasn't right there cheering for/crying for Shosh as she swallowed her lingering feelings for Ray and ran his campaign like a pro? Speaking of which: We wouldn't be mad at Shosh's eventual destiny involving her becoming a mini Olivia Pope. We'll see what Japan holds. By the way, season four's might've been our favorite finale[2] the show has put on yet.

The Best TV Show That Isn't On TV: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Tina Fey's follow-up to 30 Rock, starring Ellie Kemper as a spunky cult escapee, beat out the other streaming options (for what it's worth, Netflix owned all three of the top spots, with Orange Is the New Black coming in second and House of Cards coming in third). If you haven't watched Kimmy yet, you need to put it on your summer to-queue list. To catch you up, here's our recap of the pilot and here's our Q+A with Fey and Kemper.[3][4]

The Supporting Girl We Love: Hannah Simone, New Girl
New Girl's Cece just beat out Sophie Turner of Game of Thrones—and considering the following race's results, we can see how Simone might've gotten a storyline bump.

Hookup of the Year: Cece and Schmidt on New Girl/Cookie and Malcolm on Empire (tie)
You guys couldn't choose between the star-crossed reconciliation of New Girl's No. 2 couple and Taraji P. Henson and Derek Luke's bearskin rug romp. We get it: a little sweet, a little spice. (P.S. More on what Cece and Schmidt's engagement means for next season of New Girl here[5].)

titus-burgess

The Supporting Guy We Love: Titus Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Titus Andromedon's real life alter ego ran away with this prize—nearly 35 percent of you voted for Kimmy's beloved roomie/Times Square's most overqualified Iron Man.

Craziest Twist of the Year: Lucious will live, Empire
How to Get Away With Murder's elaborate assignment of guilt surprised 17 percent of you. Mindy Lahiri getting knocked up caught 10 percent of you off guard. But nothing could top the WTF factor of Lucious's diagnosis being undid.

Most Shocking Death: Derek, Grey's Anatomy
We know. We never thought we'd live to bury McDreamy. Lest your brain has blocked the traumatic events that went down, click here[6] to read our recap of Patrick Dempsey's final episode. Shonda, you really know how to keep us on our toes.

Crush of the Year: Chris Messina, The Mindy Project
Killer dance moves, endearing Bruce Springsteen loyalty, and, now, that particular dad-to-be air of hotness? Yeah, we don't see anyone reclaiming this crown from Danny Castellano soon (though Scandal's Scott Foley put up a solid 29 percent to Messina's 31). Here's Chris on Mindy's sweet finale[7] and what's ahead for Danny.

Crush of the Year, Lyon Brothers Edition: Jussie Smollett
Not to give Empire's Bryshere Y. Gray and Trai Byers inferiority complexes, but our hearts belong firmly to Smollett, to the tune of 73 percent of the vote. You can keep your money.

Coolest Feminist TV Moment: Everything Amy Schumer does on Inside Amy Schumer
"Last F*ckable Day."[8] Bill Cosby defenders.[9] Doggie daycare supermoms.[10] Schumer can do no wrong.

"Too Far": Sansa's rape on Game of Thrones
A few thousand zombies aren't going to distract us from the fact that this was undeniably GoT's most over the line moment yet.[11]

Favorite Reality Show: Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelor/The Bachelorette (tie)
Considering how amped up you guys get over the comings and goings of the Chmerkovskiy brothers[12] and the uninterrupted s—t show that is Kaitlyn Bristowe's room full of potential husbands[13], this tie is no surprise. (Southern Charm came in third.)

The Show We'll Miss the Most: Parks and Recreation
An overwhelming 40 percent of you are still tearfully humming "Goodbye, Lil' Sebastian" to yourselves as you drift off to sleep at night. We can relate.

Funny Girl of the Year: Mindy Kaling, The Mindy Project
We can't see the acknowledged queen of single girl soundbites take on mom culture. In the meantime, here's Mindy Kaling and Mindy Project costume designer Sal Perez on their big plans for the little guy's wardrobe.[14]

andy-samberg-99

Funny Guy of the Year: Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
He's got our vote and an Emmy under his belt; now it's time to close the deal with Santiago, Jake!

Drama Heroine of the Year: Taraji P. Henson, Empire
The Cookie Monster is unstoppable right now. And your votes echoed TV's diversity renaissance; all of the top three spots went to African-American lead actresses. Henson got 30 percent of the vote, while How to Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis notched 19 percent and Scandal's Kerry Washington won 17 percent.

Drama Hero of the Year: Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Thirty-five percent of you must be super stressed over all the Tyrion tumult going down this season—but deep down, we know he'll emerge triumphant. Right? Right? HBO, we swear, if you kill him off, we'll make like a Wildlings mob and take down your headquarters.

Favorite Comedy of the Year: The Mindy Project
Take that, FOX. We shall follow Shulman & Associates wherever it relocates, to Hulu, holograms, and beyond.

Favorite New Show of the Year/Favorite Drama of the Year: Empire
Empire took both of these categories, which is the equivalent of a freshman winning prom queen. How to Get Away With Murder and Jane the Virgin rounded out the top three new shows you loved, and Game of Thrones was your second-favorite drama of the season.
