I hardly ever watch awards show programs but last night Hawaii Five-0 was up for Best New Drama. Not only did I want to see if the show won but I wanted to see the acceptance speech if it did.
The show DID win - YEA!!!!! The cast wasn't at the awards show because they are still filming in Hawaii. A pre-recorded acceptance message was shown instead. (Evidently all of those shows who were nominated taped a message to be shown in case they won.)
All 4 of the main Hawaii Five-0 cast were shown on one of the beaches. Daniel Dae Kim spoke first, then Scott Caan and finally, Alex O'Loughlin. What??? What about Grace Park? She was there. I kind of felt sorry for her. I don't mean to criticize and I certainly don't know the circumstances behind the taping but I thought Grace should have gotten to say something. Oh, well. Maybe the next time the show wins an award - and I'm pretty sure it will - Grace will get in on the acceptance speech.
Some of the other winners were no surprise to me -
Taylor Swift - Country Artist
Movie Actor - Johnny Depp
Comedic Star - Adam Sandler
Favorite Family Movie - Toy Story 3
There were some however, that really surprised me -
Comedy Actor - Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother). I was totally shocked that Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) didn't win.
TV Comedy - Glee. Again, I was surprised that The Big Bang Theory didn't win.
Favorite New TV Comedy: $#*! My Dad Says. Mike and Molly really should have won that category.
Movie Star Under 25 - Zac Effron. I really thought Robert Pattinson had that one sewn up especially because
Twilight: Eclipse won as the Favorite Movie AND the favorite Drama Movie plus Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart won as the Favorite On-screen Team.
Those are just a few of the winners. If you didn't see the show and are interested you can see who the nominees and the winners were for 2011 here.
