‘Mrs. Browns Boys’ was nominated for best sitcom at the BAFTA awards. For US readers it’s the equivalent of the Emmy’s/Oscars. It was beaten out by a show called ‘Rev’. Which, to be honest, I’ve never heard of until I read the nominations.
From what I’d been reading online about ‘Rev’, it seemed to be a safer bet then Mrs. Brown. Mrs Brown seemed to ‘risque’ for the curmudgeons who voted in that category. Brendans show had walloped every other show in the ratings in his time-slot. It seems that ‘Rev’ was a strange choice to win.
Oh well. Congrats to them and hopefully next year Mrs. Brown will be holding that golden trophy.
