Use your votes to tell us what you loved this year on television.

HOW IT WORKS: 

Never participated in the #GoldenTrioAwards? Here's how it works: Based on a fun, interactive game called #Top3 that our assistant editor, Chelsea, created years ago, these awards don't just have one winner — they have three!
