Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Buffy beats Alias in the Tater Tops Awards

You’ve got excellent taste, home fries.

The results are in for this year’s Tater Tops Awards, where tube fans and couch potatoes get the chance to weigh in on TV’s best and worst. Nearly 50,000 of you voted, and once again, you’ve proven you are masterful tube connoisseurs—not to mention that you have an affection bordering on obsession when it comes to a certain fair-haired Slayer and multicolor-haired spy.

This year, Buffy the Vampire Slayer received the most wins—eight total, including Breakout Star, Favorite Funnygirl and Show You’ll Miss the Most. Coming in at a close second is ABC’s Alias with a total of six wins, including Best Fight and Best (mmmmmm) Kiss. See, told ya you had good taste.

You also gave big props to newbies like Everwood and American Dreams, paid homage to now gone Dawson’s Creek and wisely panned the likes of A.U.S.A., Mr. Personality and (shudder!) Are You Hot?

We can only hope Emmy voters take notice of what we fans want this year—since, much to our dismay and hair-pulling angst, many of the viewer faves get jilted on the Emmy ballot year after year. Nominations are coming; they’ll be announced bright and early on July 17, and in my next column, I’ll run down my picks for who’s likely to go the distance.
