Buffy The Vampire Slayer wins Television Critics Association’s prestigious Heritage Award

Tuesday 29 July 2003, by Webmaster

Similarly, the just-ended Buffy The Vampire Slayer won the TCA’s prestigious Heritage Award, given to a show that has transcended its medium to profoundly impact on society or culture. Something of an overstatement in this case, perhaps, but appropriate compensation for an excellent show that has been routinely overlooked at the Emmys, getting a single nod for visual effects for this, its final season.

The Buffy prize was accepted by actors Nicholas Brendan and Emma Caulfield - notified in advance of their winners’ status, the talent inevitably turns up in droves for the annual TCA presentations, a fact made fun of by Wanda Sykes in a hilarious introductory speech.

"Do you guys really vote for the shows that you really think are the best shows, or did you just pick the people you thought would show up? I was just wondering. Because I see the people are here. Instead of announcing `The winner is ...,’ y’all should just come up and say, `Here’s who showed up.’

"I’d like to thank you all for supporting me, and for inviting me here ... Congratulations to all the winners. And to the losers ... f—k ’em, they’re not even here."
