Winner of Globe for Best TV Comedy...The Office?


Recommended Posts

Was quite surprised to hear that The Office had won the Globe for best comedy as I didn't realise it had been released over in the US yet. Apparantly tho it has been shown as it was here on BBC America, with an American version with different actors being made this year.

Personally I'm glad, because the Office is brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. So clever, spot on timing and acted to perfection. Silence has never felt so awkward. Its a shame that sometimes it goes way to far with some of its humour, but....

Has anyone else here seen it ?

Yeah, I haven't been able to find a BBC-A schedule, but at Blockbuster yesterday, I noticed an "Office First Season" DVD forsale. I was broke and on a particular misssion, or I would have snapped it up just to have it.

"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."
