  1. These awards shows really should be on a network everyone can watch. They could show it the next day on 7 or 9 or one of their affiliates. Same with Golden Globes. Ch 9 better never stop showing the Oscars.
    I’m glad to see The Americans finally getting recognised. I hope they win some awards.
