Took phylly3's 'nose for news' remark seriously and skulked around in the current barren desert for something/anything new about RA. In my quest, stumbled upon the following website. It's completely new to me - has anyone else already been there?...a few of the commenters have a familiar ring to their posts:)
The awards are a combination of US & UK tv programs. Two of my favs '24' and 'Burn Notice' (which are about to start new seasons) are mentioned there AND most importantly, our luscious Lucas received an award. HOORAY! Obviously people of fine taste populate that website. The list of awards and a link:
>It’s now time to announce the results of the 2009 Unpopcult Awards.
And the winners are….
Best Drama – Mad Men
Beating off some stiff competition from BSG’s final season and Lost’s penultimate one, the gloomy, gorgeous and generally great period advertising drama wins it. Well done, Sterling Cooper, we salute you.
Best Comedy – 30 Rock
The TGS crew walk away with the prize despite a banner year for Chuck and a strong showing for newcomer Modern Family. Congratulations to Tina, Alec and co for keeping the unpopcult massive in stitches.
Best Ensemble – Mad Men
Chuck and How I Met Your Mother were the main challengers, but Sterling Cooper made it a double and took the trophy here too, maybe going some way to console a certain member of the cast who never seems to get the awards everyone thinks they’re going to get…
Best Performance By a Boy – Hugh Laurie, House
I guess Jon Hamm just can’t catch a break. Er, I mean, well done Hugh, who put in a fantastic performance all year, and massively outshone much of the material he was given.
Best Performance By a Girl – Hermione Norris, Spooks
All the ladies in this category put in superb performances, but first-time nominee Hermione stormed away with it. Small consolation if Ros does turn out to be dead, but I suppose we can’t have everything.
I Would Hit That (Male) – Lucas North (Richard Armitage, Spooks)
Beating hot (in both senses of the word) favourite Pierre Clement of Spiral, Lucas (aka Richard Armitage) cemented his position this year both in Section D and in unpopculters’ daydreams. National security is in very attractive hands.
I Would Hit That (Female) – Liz Lemon (Tina Fey, 30 Rock)
So guys do make passes at girls who wear glasses? Hurrah!
Most Annoying Character – President Allison Taylor, 24
In perhaps the most hard-fought category of all, last year’s winner Mohinder Suresh and young pretender Allison “Cameron” Cameron came very close to taking the crown, but with her unshakeable faith in her appalling daughter, her complete lack of judgement and her constant, stupid faffing about, UOTUS just shaded it. And she’s in season 8. Be afraid.<
New season of BURN NOTICE (Jeffrey Donovan) starts on Jan 21 - here's a promo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCChP8zxQ0U&NR=1
