Spike, what you said was very clear but I just wanted to add that SMG once was nominated for the Globe.
Starbuck, I think Buffy is mostly thought of as a show for teenagers and this is why no-one really paid attention.
X-Files, this was a huge hit show world wide and seen by viewers between let's say 16 and 60...and was considered to be a clever show...hence the many awards, I think.
It's the producers who decide about putting a show up for nomination. The X-Files was in its way original and popular. The producers pushed for nominations. The producers of Buffy and Angel, Gareth Davies, The Kazuis, and the others just didn't think it would work. A lot of money goes into these award shows. I don't agree with the system. It's just ironic to me how Hollywood which always seems to always hate greedy rich people are all about the cash themselves.
I am a hypocrite. I buy DVDs of TV shows because I despise commercials, some can be funny and inventive, but mostly they are just annoying. Without the commercials, no shows. However, pretty sure that Fox makes a good deal of dosh off my purchases. In the USA, Buffy and Angel retail price is 59 dollars. You can find it cheaper, no doubt, I have. But that is the "suggested" retail price. 24 goes for over 60 dollars. Star Trek TNG goes for 80 bucks! Ok, off topic once again.
Oops. Didn't see Christine's post about SMG and The Golden Globe award. I am glad for that, that she was nominated. The Golden Globe's are based on popularity so no wonder.
Ah, thanks for the clarification Christine and Spike.
I think this is the best post wot i ever did wrote! I even managed to insult French people , what a result!
