Zap2it’s Tv Gal Awards - Results (angel mentions)

Tuesday 29 June 2004, by Webmaster

TV Gal Tears Open the Envelope (Monday, June 28 08:02 AM) By Amy Amatangelo LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - In retrospect, they probably should have been called the TV Gal Reader Awards. Sure it’s not as catchy (or as self-indulgent) as the Amy Awards, but it is a more accurate description. Because, remember, in the 2004 Amy Awards, you picked the categories, you chose the nominees, and you decided the winners. I, because I love you, take the heat for your decisions. And, let me tell you, some readers are mighty cranky that Adrianna’s death on "The Sopranos" didn’t make the cut for Best Death or Character Exit (perhaps, like me, you’re not completely convinced she’s dead). Others are stunned by the organized effort of those fans who really, really, really (they’re not kidding) want Carter and Abby back together on "ER." Even I’m confused that "The O.C." is considered a guilty pleasure, not just a pleasure.

But that’s okay, for you, my people, I will take any and all complaints.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2004 Amy Awards. I know many of you had trouble voting and I appreciate your perseverance and your efforts to get out the vote. I love you like Donald Trump loves his pompadour, like Aaron Spelling loves nepotism, like NBC loves remaking British sitcoms. Here (insert your own drum roll here) are the 2004 Amy Award Winners:

Quotes of the Week

"I’ve made a lot of enemies through the years Ruth. You take the back-stabbing world of academia, throw in a controversial field like geology. You’ve got real trouble." George on "Six Feet Under" after he receives a second package full of excrement.

"You’re playing for charity, and yet you recently lost your job." Dave Foley to Matthew Perry on "Celebrity Poker Showdown." Thanks to TV Gal reader Rob for the quote.

"I bet you say that to all the boys you slept with at your daughter’s wedding." Christian to Julia’s mom on "Nip/Tuck."

Best News of the Week

TV Gal reader Steve was the first to remind me know that the July 22 episode of "Celebrity Poker Showdown" will feature the cast of "Arrested Development" — Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, David Cross, Judy Greer plus Peter Facinelli (who we made his first appearance as Claire’s friend on "Six Feet Under" this week).

Where Have I Seen Them Before?

That was Hallee Hirsch, Mark Greene’s daughter Rachel on "ER," as the girl who died at the beginning of "Six Feet Under." Amanda Michalka, Shannon on "The Guardian," played her friend.

Highlights of the Week Ahead All times listed are Eastern Standard Time for June 28 to July 4

I don’t love "The Division" (Monday, Lifetime, 8 p.m.), but when it comes to television I’ve learned to take the good and take the bad. And let me tell you there’s no way I’m missing Kim Fields reunite with Nancy McKeon (who you might recall missed the "Facts of Life" reunion movie) in the season finale of "The Division." I believe I’ve already told you that I cried the day Jo and Blair graduated from high school. That was the moment that I realized perhaps, just perhaps, I took TV more seriously than the other children.

If you haven’t yet joined the "Last Comic Standing" bandwagon, NBC is going to make it extra easy for you. New episodes will now air on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. and then repeat Wednesdays at 8 p.m. This week Norm Crosby, Phyllis Diller and Rich Little stop by to give a few words of wisdom. Don’t forget that this is the episode of "The Jury" (Tuesday, FOX, 9 p.m.) that reunites the cast of "Oz" including George Morfogen, Eamonn Walker, J.K. Simmons, Jon Seda, Betty Buckley, Scott Winters, Mums, Stephanie Pope, Carlo Alban, Elain Graham, Natascia A. Diaz and Jenna Lamia.

In a summer filled with bad reality TV, there is a whole lot to love about "Summerland" (Tuesday, WB, 9 p.m.). This week, I’m loving that, in true Aaron Spelling tradition, the child actor guest stars are such bad actors. Did they all attend the Adam LaVorgna School of Acting?

Perhaps responding to critics who accused the series of wallowing in stereotypes, everybody’s favorite quintet decide to help one of their own in a special "Queer Eye for the Gay Guy" (Tuesday, Bravo, 10 p.m.)

If you missed any of this season of "Six Feet Under," HBO repeats the first three episodes this Sunday beginning at 8 p.m.

That’s all for today. Have a wonderful July 4. I’ll be back next week to talk about the return of the best reality show ever "The Amazing Race." Coming soon, my picks for the Emmy nominations and a look at returning series like "Dead Like Me," "Missing," "Wild Card" (which has a couple new faces) and new series like "The Grid," "Rescue Me" and Marky Mark’s "Entourage." Have question, seen a familiar face, have an inside scoop or want to nominate a quote of the week? Write me at amytvgal@zap2it.com by clicking on my byline at the top of my column.
