June 25 2009

Portal Awards 2009 are open for voting. Voting is open from June 25 to July 25 and you may vote once per day and email address. You can vote for Eliza Dushku, Olivia Williams, "Omega", Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Dollverse and Whedonesque.

Ugh! I didn't like having to chose between Jewel, Olivia, and Summer!
Jewel,Olivia,Summer?
Chris or Zach?
Star Trek or Watchmen?

so hard!

the choice of website was easy.
Some tough choices.

Why is Ian McShane up for best *supporting* actor? The show is called Kings and he's the king. He's obviously the lead (or co-lead with Chris Egan).
chance I second that! It was... just plain mean.
I love lists that are complicated with goodness. :)
Damn BSG taking up most of my votes! :P
Some of those were easy like best actor (Jensen Ackles, hands down) or best website (Whedonesque, what else?). Others were more than a bit tricky. Best actress was a pain; it came down to deciding between Eliza, Anna Paquin, and Catherine Tate. I ended up choosing Catherine Tate, who had a pretty phenomenal run on Doctor Who last season. Hardest was best episode, where I was choosing between Supernatural, Dollhouse, and Doctor Who. I ended up going with Doctor Who again, but if the other two entries had been different episodes (say "Yellow Fever" or "Briar Rose"), things might of been different.
This is not fair at all... why is Dark Knight still here? That was last year!

And some of it is hard choosing between Dollhouse and BSG... but Best Supporting Actress was easy (despite it putting people in the wrong place... no way is Cameron a supporting character!). Go Summer!

Best actor was easiest, Eddie James all the way!

Before last year I would have agreed with you; I was one of the people vehemently protesting her being on Doctor Who. But her performance was a welcome surprise and well worth the watch, IMO.
Catherine was amazing on Doctor Who.

I voted for her.
My votes were pretty varied amongst several shows - Dollhouse, Lost, BSG, Doctor Who, TSCC, etc... It was a good year for TV genre. :)

When it came to lifetime achievement, I had to vote for Gene L. Coon. Besides the fact that he created the Klingons and the Prime Directive (which I didn't know until today), my mother insists that he's a 2nd or 3rd cousin of hers so -- blood's thicker than water!

That was the choice for me too. I ended up voting Anna Paquin who was pretty amazing on True Blood, I thought.

For me it was the other way around. I now voted for Omega (my favourite episode of Dollhouse S1), but if another Doctor Who episode, one more to my liking, had been up there: Silence in the Library, Forest of the Dead or Planet of the Dead, it might have gone the other way around.

Also voted Dollhouse as best series and Alan as best guest star (that one was easy, he was astonishing)

Too bad Dexter wasn't genre enough to be included.
Sorry all, it's BSG all the way, for me. Except for best guest star, that one had to go to Alan.

Dollhouse has at least another season - and hopefully more - to garner awards, but BSG is not only over forever *sniffle* but IMO, the most deserving, in every category.

Dollhouse hasn't had four seasons to get to that level of awesome, plus it was hampered by network tampering, for the first almost-half of it's short life.
Onward and upward.
Almost all of my votes were confined to Whedony actors and projects (I was so happy to see 'Doctor Horrible' in there!). Where there wasn't a Whedonesque choice then I went for Doctor Who or BSG because they have been totally awesome, but nothing is as strong as my Dollhouse love at this point!
