    I guess Girls will win the international award, the Brits seem to love it.

    BAFTA TV Awards: Olivia Colman Scores Two Prizes; ‘Girls’ Is Top International Show
    By NANCY TARTAGLIONE, International Editor | Sunday, 12 May 2013 21:42

    BAFTA handed out its TV prizes tonight in London with Olivia Colman taking two awards, one for supporting actress for BBC miniseries Accused and the other as actress in a comedy program for Olympics sitcom Twenty Twelve, which was also named best sitcom. Colman will soon be seen by U.S. audiences in ITV’s recent hit drama Broadchurch. Ben Whishaw was best actor for Neal Street Productions co-production with NBC Universal and WNET Thirteen/BBC Two, Richard II (Hollow Crown), and top comedy actor was Steve Coogan for Sky Atlantic‘s Welcome To The Places Of My Life.

    Really, BAFTA?  You try to submarine the Oscar results in February with your emergency choice of Emmanuelle Riva to deny J-Law her Oscar, and now you’re the latest to get snookered by the ‘Girls’ publicity machine? Perfect timing, then for Yahoo’s This Season’s Cable TV Winners and Losers: http://tv.yahoo.com/photos/this-year-s-cable-tv-winners-losers-1367535742-slideshow/loser-girls-photo-1735174135.html

    LOSER: “Girls” (HBO)

    For all the breathless media coverage surrounding Lena Dunham’s hipster
    comedy, you’d think there’d be, you know, some people watching. But
    Season 2 of “Girls” only averaged 661,000 viewers a week — or about one
    viewer for every dozen “Girls”-related tweets, by our measure. And the
    ratings actually dipped this year, which means some people have given up
    and stopped watching. (Which, having seen Season 2, we can’t exactly
    blame them for.) “Girls” is already set to return for a third season,
    but we’re starting to doubt that it’ll ever be the “Sex and the
    City”-level breakout comedy hit HBO is hoping for. 

    BTW, Continuum averaged over a million viewers a week on SyFy.

    ^ And you would consider Contiuum a ‘winner’? Interesting . . .

    The size of a show’s audience is hardly proof of its quality. 661,000 is likely an overnight number and doesn’t factor in viewers throughout the week or on HBOGo. Further, as a subscription channel, HBO is more in the business of getting more subscribers than a specific number of eyeballs to watch a half-hour block on its channel one night of the week. Also, this award may have been for its first and second seasons since its first season debuted in April 2012.

    Yes.

    • 2013 Saturn Award nomination: Best
      TV Production;

    • 5 2013 Canadian Screen Award nominations;
      Best Drama Series, Music, VFX, Writing, Directing;

    • 4 2013 Constellation Award nominations: Best
      Sci-fi TV Series, Best Actress in a 2012 Sci-Fi TV Episode (Rachel
      Nichols), Best Sci-fi Film/TV Script (the pilot) Outstanding
      Canadian Contribution to Sci-fi Film/TV;

    • 2013 Writers Guild of Canada
      nomination, drama series (for Endtime, the season finale)

      Saturn and Constellation honors handed out in June; they won VFX at the CSA (Flashpoint’s final season was too much for them to resist honoring. And an out of left-field decision to give the WGC award to “The LA Complex”.   This week, British Columbia’s Emmys, the Leo Awards, are likely to announce their class of 2012-13.   It is an awards nomination magnet, like it or not.

    ^ Okay then.

    Girls’ award wins include DGA for outstanding achievement in comedy, WGA for best new series, above mentioned BAFTA for best international show, Golden Globe for best comedy. Nominations abound, including Emmy nominations for series, lead actress, writing, and directing; two TCA niminations; and two Critics Choice nominations. You can see the full list here, which will only grow in the next few months.

    It is perfectly fine to have an opinion about a show but just because you hate it doesn’t make it trash.

    So happy for Falstaff/Simon Russell Beale. Wish Tom Hiddleston were also nominated at the very least.
