I just learned something interesting: The Andy Awards are an actual thing. Apparently, they’re given to honour the best in international advertising. Oops. Ah well, if you’ve come to this blog in search of information on the actual Andy Awards, as opposed to a lazily-named post series on some dude’s blog, I’m afraid you’re in the wrong place. But feel free to stick around, and read up on who I think should have been nominated and who should win awards for the best dramatic performances on television in the 2009-10 season. (And while you’re at it, go back and look at my picks for the best guest stars and comedy performances).
As a reminder, I don’t watch House, Damages, The Closer, or Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and gave up on Treme, so you won’t see any nominees from those shows. I did, however, watch 12 different dramas from whom I drew these nominees, which is pretty solid (and for those of you scoring at home, yes, I watch a whole lot of TV).
