    I’m a UGA Alumnus and I’ve seen some of the Peabody master class presentations. I’ll have to see who is coming from this batch of awards. All well deserved!

    The Leftovers deserves the Peabidy. The best show in television.

    So Beasts of No Nation gets a TV recognition then? Does that mean it will be eligible for the Emmys?

    I love all of the shows mentioned especially the fantastic The Leftovers which I’m trying to persuade people to watch. (actually I haven’t seen Wolf Hall or Deutschland 83 or actually BONN either)

  7. jakis says:

    Very happy to see The Leftovers recognized. It’s absolutely the best show on television (when it’s on) and deserves recognition.

    YAAAAAAYYYYY! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that The Leftovers continues its nomination buzz and gets every Emmy nomination (and, hopefully, award) it deserves.

    If only this would convince HBO to give Leftovers more than one more season. One of the best dramas on TV.
