We did not get to see this, an ensemble that would have provided endless fodder throughout the live blogging. I could have thought of it when GH won for best drama series and smiled, instead of crying and throwing things. I mean seriously, Judith Chapman has a fan AND a parasol! While attired in black silk pajamas! Fantastic.
Also, our readers kindly pointed out that while Jason Thompson may in fact have been hotly absent, James Scott was very much present; he was just ignored by all camerapeople during both the pre-show and the ceremony. The only reasonable explanation is that including him would have made the other men feel bad about themselves; his exclusion was a self-esteem-building exercise. Well done, ABC!
