Our Thomas Jefferson Stephen Dillane Didn't Win --

Waaaa! I figured that Wilkinson's more flashy Ben Franklin might win, but we sure wanted the amazing Stephen Dillane to triumph for John Adams in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. But congrats to Wilkinson, of course!

Jay Roach just won as Outstanding Directing for Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special for Recount from HBO. Good exhortation to people to "keep your elections honest..." Expected...hoped...for John Adams win.

Outstanding Writing for Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special: Kirk Ellis for the Independence segment of John Adams. Well-deserved award, with a nice jab about politicians using complete sentences.... They cut him off for a commercial, unfortunately. Wanted Gervais and Merchant, but this is a great choice, of course.
