You might have heard of the Golden Globes and how they award the best in television and film. Since that has come and gone, I have decided to start the Sliver Globe Awards for the best of shows that aired in 2011. Since I am not keeping up with movies, there will be no movie component to these awards. I figure that only TV shows get the award and most of these I've made up myself. The winners will be announced later, provided that they do not automatically win by being the only nominnee. I would also like to criticize some award shows for using presenters for uncoming projects as a way to promote them and for giving awards to movies that are still in theatres. Anyways, without further ado, the nominees:

Just for fun, I added a nominee that shouldn't be there if you listen to a person on that show. I wonder if anyone can guess it. Feel free to vote if you want to, but I already have the winners in mind.
