Primetime TV Awards: Nominees 2004
The Freshman Award (Best New Series) Arrested Development, Joan of Arcadia, Nip/Tuck, The OC, Two and a Half Men
The Legacy Award (Based on the Entire Length of a Retiring Series) Angel, Frasier, Friends, The Practice, Sex and the City
The Stinker Award (Best Bad Show America Can’t Help But Watch) The Apprentice, Fear Factor, Las Vegas, The Simple Life, Still Standing
The votes have been tallied, and the nominations are now made for the 2nd Annual About Primetime TV Quality Television Awards.
This year’s nominees are not as surprising as last year, but they still present some pretty tight races in a variety of categories.
Easily the most difficult competition is found in the Legacy Award category which honors the best retiring series. With the amazing quality of all five nominees, it will be interesting to see what long-running program the voters ultimately decide to reward.
Even if one of those shows, Frasier, does not win that category it still has a chance in many other categories. The veteran series went out on a high note and racks up six nominations — as many as the top nominated program in the drama categories.
That multiple nominee is The Sopranos. With six nominations, including a nomination for best drama series and best individual episode of a drama series, the mob series proved it was still pleasing the fans.
While the surprises were few, some of the more notable shockers include multiple nominations for The OC and Everwood, nominations for both Bonnie Hunt and Katey Sagal in the comedy actress category, near shutouts for the once prosperous The West Wing and Will & Grace (although the latter scored a best episode nomination for "Last Ex to Brooklyn," an undeserved nomination in this columnist’s opinion), and some well-deserved love for a variety of series airing on Comedy Central.
Less surprising was the love for Alias and 24 (despite mixed seasons for both series), nods toward two of the more successful new dramas (Joan of Arcadia and Nip/Tuck), and support for the entire cast of Sex and the City.
A complete list of nominees follow. Return to this column next week for the beginning of the About PrimeTime TV fall preview featuring a countdown of the best networks to check out this fall.
