Battlestar, Office and Heroes Among the Best in ’06

December 11, 2006 by  

The American Film Institute (AFI) just announced its selections for the best television of 2006, and a few of GMMR’s favorites were among those honored.

AFI will honor the creative ensembles for each of the honorees at a luncheon on Friday, January 12, 2007

More information on The AFI Awards after the jump.

AFI AWARDS is the only form of national recognition that honors the film and
television creative ensemble as a whole—those both in front of and behind the
camera—acknowledging the collaborative nature of film and television.
Unlike any other film or television award currently given, the AFI AWARDS
2006 selections were made through AFI’s unique 13-person jury process in
which scholars, film artists, critics and AFI trustees discuss, debate and
determine the most outstanding achievements of the year, as well as provide a
detailed rationale for each selection.
“AFI AWARDS brings the community together—not as winners or losers—but as
artists who have enriched our cultural legacy.” commented Jean Picker Firstenberg, AFI’s
President and CEO.

    I am so, so, so happy to see Friday Night Lights on that list. It is a wonderful show, and I hope more people will start watching.
