Predictable though this may be, Farscape still remains ahead
of the pack, constantly taking chances to remain fresh and exciting.
Dennis Haysbert for his incredibly rounded and likeable portrayal of scientist
Theodore Morris in Now and Again.
Michelle Trachtenberg for a series of stunning performances as Dawn in
Buffy that really made the Season Five arc work.
A new category this year to give credit to casts who work
well as a team. Third place: The cast of Buffy The Vampire Slayer,
particularly showing its skills in The Body.
Second place: Andromeda, surprising us all with how well it all came
together. Winner: The Invisible Man. They could sit about in the office
drinking tea and ad-libbing and it would still be superb.
Andromeda, from some
decidedly dodgy early episodes it's rapidly evolved into an excellent show.
The Most Useless Channel of the Year
Channel 5. We loved them, then they took all our
programmes away. Runner-up: Channel 4, for refusing to buy the second series of
Angel, poor scheduling and sudden removal of telefantasy shows.
The `What do we pay you for, exactly?' award for
the most underused cast
Dark Angel. If you're
not Max, Logan or Lydecker, the guest cast get more screen time. Two of Max's
friends have been lost for Season Two; the campaign for more Original Cindy,
Sketchy and Normal starts here.
The Cancer Man award for the biggest
Mutant X. Look, we all know it's the X-Men, so just admit it.
The Farscape award for surrealism above and beyond
the call of duty
Farscape, for pretty much any scene Crichton is involved in, especially
those with Harvey in Infinite Possibilities and
The Douglas Adams Tribute `On no, not again' award
for a show that should have finished by now
Second place: Urban Gothic. They made a second series?
Winner: The X-Files. They're making a ninth
