The Goldies 2015 Wrap Up

It was another great year for the Goldnerds Fan Awards! We couldn’t have done it without all of the fans and the thousands of votes that came through. Thank you for voting and for telling your friends to vote.

There was some confusion in the write-in portions and many people chose Season 1 events or characters, so next year we will definitely specify that the awards are specific to Season 3. Congratulations to all of the winners (listed below)!

Be sure to pick up The Goldbergs Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD to relive all the fun (if you haven’t already) before Season 3 premieres on September 23rd.

The Goldies 2015 – Week 4

It’s Goldies Week 4 and we have passed the halfway point. We wanted to give you plenty of time to pick your favorite episode. It’s hard to choose when there are 24 possibilities, so we just included a handful but you can write-in your absolute favorite. If it gets mentioned enough times we’ll move it to the main list! Vote, reblog, share, repost & vote again!

Just like last year, you can vote as many times as you want and you can go back to vote in previous categories until voting is closed at the end of August. Get out the vote!

The Goldies 2015 – Week 2

We’ve already had over 100 votes in our first two categories and this week we add 5 more! It’s Guest Star week on the 2nd Annual Goldnerds Fan Awards – The Goldies! This time around you have the option to vote for your favorite guest stars throughout The Goldbergs Season 2. We dove back into all 24 episodes to pull out the visitors who made the most of their short time on the show this season.

The Goldies 2015 – Week 1

Summer time for a fan of The Goldbergs means it’s time for the 2nd Annual Goldnerds Fan Awards; or as we affectionately like to call them: The Goldies! You can relive the excitement of last year by checking out our wrap-up post with all the winners. Our original explanation for The Goldies still stands, though the times and some categories will definitely change. We will release new categories every Monday for the next 5 weeks.

You may wonder if any of this makes a difference. Well, we’re not going to go so far as to say that these awards influence the show’s content, but when we asked what you guys most wanted to see in Season 2, you responded with an 80’s TV or movie star…cut to Charlie Sheen in “Barry Goldbergs Day Off.” Coincidence or Goldies Magic??

For the first week you will see some familiar categories, however the coveted f-bomb trophy will now have two winners because so many people got in on the action! As always, you will have an opportunity to write-in your favorites from The Goldbergs Season 2. Now, let the voting begin!

2014 Wrap-up

AKA – Goldnerds: Year One!

goldnerdsAs we look back on 2014 we realize it was a great year for both The Goldbergs and the Goldnerds! Anything that’s good for the show is great for its fans and that mean #1980something was awesome in 2014.

The Goldnerds launched back in May just in time for the Season 1 finale. The only thing we knew was that more and more people needed to watch this show and thus the fandom was born! Right out of the gate we got some fun followers on Twitter and the dream became a reality.

We were faced with the problem of launching a fandom in the summer between the seasons, but thankfully ABC helped us out with two episodes of The Goldbergs on most Wednesdays throughout the summer. Also, to unify the fans, we decided to create and rally behind #Emmy4Wendi. Oh, and we also instituted #FunFactFriday throughout most Fridays of the summer. And this was just what we started in May!

In June we hit full stride on the #Emmy4Wendi campaign and received some great artwork help from the WendiFanSite. Unfortunately an official nomination was nowhere to be found so it was up to the fans to take matters into their own hands. The Goldies was/were born in July!

The first annual Goldies (Goldnerds Fan Awards) was a smashing success and ran through August. With Season 2 in full swing some categories are already shaping up for next year! (You can see last year’s winners right here.) July was also the month we debuted our first series of Goldnerds membership cards. Towards the end of July the cast was back at it and gearing up for Season 2 and August brought more hints of what was to come!

September began the 23 Days of Goldbergs leading up to the Season 2 premiere. The Season 1 DVD was released to great acclaim and we launched our first line of Goldnerds clothing & accessories (which was quickly shut down due to the fact that we had no idea Sony was planning on doing something similar the following month). You can still believe in 1980something however, because our re-design was eventually approved for purchase. Click here to order!

October saw the release of the Goldnerds Downloadable Collectible (which didn’t get quite the traction we were hoping for, but contained brilliant almost minimalist designs from @comedy_girl that you shouldn’t have missed). Season 2 was rockin’ onscreen and in the ratings so it was time for a November surprise! That’s right – Goldnerds Cards: Series 2! The release of the new cards actually occurred in December, but the giveaway hasn’t quite gone as planned & we’re still stocked with new cards we’d love to give to you (see giveaway post for details).

Though we have come to the last day of the year it really only feels like the Goldnerds are just getting started. There’s obviously plenty of news to be shared for the rest of The Goldbergs Season 2 (more on that in a later post). It looks like 2015 holds a lot of promise for the fans.

Happy New Year Goldnerds! See you in 2015

That’s A Goldies Wrap!

After six long weeks of having to click a button for your favorite Goldbergs things, the Goldnerds Fan Awards have come to a close. We’d like to thank each and every person who took the time to vote for their favorites (or write in their favorites when the choice wasn’t there). You made this a success!

We had some odd & funny write-ins, including:

  • “Barry eating donuts out of the trash” as his best talent
  • Vic & Mr. Kremp as favorite single guest star appearance (they’re in multiple episodes)
  • Uncle Marvin as favorite multiple appearance guest star (he’s in one episode)

But the best write-in had to be in the Adam’s “real” Best Friend category – someone simply wrote “Pops,” which is all kinds of heartwarming goodness.

You may have noticed the image on our trophy was none other than the funny, beautiful & talented Goldie Hawn. Who better to represent the award than Goldie herself?!funGoldie

All winners are listed below so you can relive the excitement and the percentages are available on all polls so you can find out how much your votes won (or lost) by. We can’t wait to find out what’s in store for Season 2 so we can get ready for Goldies 2015!

Get your VOTE on!

The stars have aligned this week and we have THREE options for all fans of the Goldbergs to vote and allow their voices to be heard!

First, all of you Goldnerds know that the Goldies has been running since July and we are down to the last few days of voting. All awards will be virtually handed out next week so get your last minute votes in below (including the newest category – Favorite Goldberg) or at this link.

fb-nanner3Next up, and also ending this week, is the EWwy awards hosted by Entertainment Weekly (EW). This is of course in response to the GIGANTIC Emmys snub of Wendi McLendon-Covey, so they created a whole awards event just for her. They had to sprinkle the love around to other people and categories just to make it seem fair (I mean, we love Emmy Rossum, but Shameless isn’t even a comedy!!!!), but we know why it really exists. Enough reading, just go vote for Wendi over here! tumblr_na5xjohLej1raqesqo1_500 And then come back and get this badge! (both badge and poster were created by the wonderful and talented @comedy_girl) wendibadgeLastly, but not leastly, on our list is the Totally Awesome Goldbergs Marathon (or the TAGM) which airs on ABC September 3rd at 8/7C. Here you can vote for your favorite 80’s moment (sound familiar?) from everyone’s favorite show. It says the top moments (plural) will be featured so while “Call Me When You Get There” is way out in the lead, there’s still hope for our favorite “Goldbergs Never Say Die” to show up. Vote for the TAGM here.

It’s an exciting time to be a member of the Goldnerds! Keep sharing for your chance to get one of the limited edition Goldnerds Membership cards that everyone is talking about
