There was a lot of great stuff to choose from this year, but I have a special request.

You must watch and tweet and social media the sh*t out of the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!

It's a part-musical, part-fevered dream about the obsessions of a Harvard-trained lawyer, who is majorly depressed and bumps into a long ago crush, that leads her to reject a lucrative New York law firm partnership and move to West Covina, California, to pursue her fantasy.

Rachel Bloom and the entire cast are wonderful!

And we can't let it get cancelled.

Now, here's some of the categories, those nominated and some of my picks via Vox.
