Sometimes I give Hollywood awards ceremonies a hard time, mostly because I’m tired of horribly depressing films winning all the time. (The Queen’s win a few years ago was a breath of fresh air!) But I think the Emmys got it right this time. Hip, Hip, Huzzah! to all the wins that went to HBO’s John Adams series!! Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, and Actor/Actress wins to Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney, and Tom Wilkinson.
Man, I couldn’t agree more.
I’ve heard rumor of HBO doing David McCullough’s 1776 next. There’s a listing at the IMDB that says 2009, though that’s all the info they list. I sure hope it’s true!!
