The Envelope Please...

And the winners are...

Best Supporting Actor

Harvey Keitel as Gene Hunt, Life on Mars

This was a toughie. Although Sanchez was obviously the dark horse and not even really on a show in the last year, the choice between Michael Imperioli and Harvey Keitel was brutal. In the end, though, Keitel had more range. He could be sympathetic every episode and still be a dick in the next without missing a beat. And who else can take a bullet in the whiskey flask and not be sure which flask was hit?

Best Character

Commander Felix Gaeta, Battlestar Galactica

The last great martyr of the last great revolution. After all the bullshit that Adama got them into, I'm surprised there wasn't a mutiny earlier. Gaeta represented everything that every fan of the show saw and called "bullshit" on. What goes around comes around, Adama. It's just too bad they fumbled in the final quarter.

Best Show on Television

Life on Mars
A foregone conclusion by most standards, Life on Mars was the best show on television during its run, with the finest supporting actors and the best writing at the time, an original plot (sorry, Great Britain) and probably the best science fiction on network television in a long time. This show will be missed and I predict it will become the next Firefly.
