Getting Some RespectJuly 19, 2007
Battlestar Galactica has been nominated for four Emmy awards. Surprisingly for a genre show, the nominations include nods in the directing and writing categories, as well as nominations for sound editing and visual effects.
Considering the jaw-dropping sequence from “Exodus, Pt 2” when the Galactica slammed into the atmosphere on New Caprica, I think the chances are pretty good our favourite show will actually win something.
I have always said that BSG is one of the best written shows on TV, period. However, in my opinion, entertainment groups with “Academy” in their titles don’t tend to be the most open-minded. I will be pleasantly surprised if Ronald D. Moore wins for writing “Occupation/Precipice” or if Felix Alcala wins for directing “Exodus, Pt 2” but I don’t think it is likely.
But it must be satisfying to be so damn good they can’t ignore you.
