PiercingMetal Thoughts: Whew, now those are some winners and I think that I’ve said this before but if I didn’t let me say it now. This is my kind of awards show. As a bit of a geek Pop Culturist, I’ve seen a lot of the movies and television series that won an award but there are still some that I need to check out. One of the things that I like about this particular awards ceremony is that it helps spark the interest in these programs a little more. Let’s face it, a lot of what this audience enjoys doesn’t always manage to get an Oscar or Emmy nod. It’s great when they do but one cannot count on it happening. So wrapping this one up I wonder what you all think about the results. Did some of your favorite films and series win big or were they left out of the nomination process? Chime in down below and I will see you next time around. Please stay safe out there my friends.
