    When we hear Bobby flatline and Pam's astute reaction to it; that there should have garnered Victoria an Emmy win. During its course Lorimar Dallas had some brilliant scenes but that one gets me every time.

    I'd like to have seen a rare Double Emmy for Sandy Ward and John Ashton as Jeb Ames and Willie Joe Garr

    I think this guy, Jerry Hardin, deserved an award as Elroy Askie for his brief shots in MAKING OF A PRESIDENT.

    Big awards, no matter their name, are all a recognition from the fellow actors which, sometimes, maybe also be two other things:
    a) A big FU to others who are making a lot more than the other nominees (probably Larry´s case);
    and b) A random winning because two others presumably had it in their pocket, and voters decided to go for somebody else (the "third candidate" win).

    For the rest of the world, awards are just something to gossip about. To report about, to discuss, to criticize about. I love the glamour of the galas just because I don´t have it in my world and it´s fun to watch it, even if they are two-days long. But they attract negativity from the media (social or not) like few other things from showbusiness. Many people think it´s something that tries to impose their opinions about the quality and what not. That´s foolish.

    In the case of the supersoaps, I think "Dallas" was the luckiest one because at least got the Emmy for Barbara and 3 other awards for music and Travilla´s gowns (as "Dynasty" got one for Nolan Miller). It also got a few more nominations for the actors and technical categories. But "Dynasty" and, very especially "Knots" and "Falcon Crest", weren´s so lucky and got only one for best music.

    On the other side, the Golden Globes were kinder to both "Dynasty" and "Falcon". They were more popular than the Emmys and more precise for distinguishing between genres and show form. But it was like the ice in the cake. The best was what we had: being able to watch them on a regular basis (some countries more fortunate than others regarding that...). At this time of the run, I don´t really care if they treated "Dallas" badly because it´s not my problem, it´s the frekking "Atas"´s (the Academy...).

    With those shoulder pads, maybe Swellen and Pam could've tried out for the NFL.
