    Hey, for once an awards group who votes almost as I would! Congratulations to Alias, Ms Garner, and Mr Garber!

    I probably would have gone with Anthony Michael Hall, but Boreanaz has improved and the rest of the field wasn't particularly impressive. I really liked Frailty, but I've heard so many good things about The Ring that I expect that it was at least a toss-up.

    (BTW, you should bold the part about Alias winning--thanks! Eventually I'll get this post right . . .)
    :D

    Isn't it bizarre that there's an actual awards show that gives awards based on merit, not on ratings or undeserved hype? It's like an alternate universe or something...:LOL:

    woot woot woot...finally ALIAS seems to be gaining more industry momentum...ABC actually spent money putting together the spoof tonite and it's winning awards...as far as I can see the only affilliation (movie, tv series or dvd) that won 3 awards! Kudos to Jen, Victor and the entire cast...especially those who weren't named!

    It's about time that Alias is getting some attention & more
    to come. Especially for Jen & given what's she been enduring for the last few weeks, any emotion lift for her is
    a good one for receiving an award. ^_^
