Stana Katic, c0-star of ABC’s Castle, won Favorite Dramatic TV Actress at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards - and Castle won Favorite TV Crime Drama for the third straight year! Fans of all the shows work hard to get their favorites to win, and anxiously watch the telecast in the hope of seeing their nominee win the glass trophy Stana’s holding. Congratulations to all of tonight’s winners!
The show itself however had some issues. While all award shows have time concerns, major categories – like Favorite Dramatic TV Actress – usually get their due. The People’s Choice however, is an exception. Take a look at:
In comparison, this was last year’s best TV actress presentation:
The Ellen Pompeo thank you to her fans continues on for another minute and two seconds – which is fine and well deserved. The winners should be given a presentation and the opportunity for them and the fans to fully savor the win and moment. The 2012 Dramatic TV Actress award was a similar setup, as was 2011.
I can’t even say that this year’s change is because CBS only gives their own shows stage time because Grey’s Anatomy is another ABC Studio Productions show. This year they could have done a similar thing with Stana Katic and consolidated her win with an announcement for Castle, but instead they rushed her through her thank you, used her as a presenter, and later, announced that Castle won best crime drama – which is another strange thing.
Once again, no stage time for Castle? It’s the show’s third win in a row and the show has never been the show has never been allowed on the stage! Over the years other non-CBS shows have gotten full stage time – so what’s the deal about Castle? If the People’s Choice Awards are “for the people, by the people” why does how the winners are treated depend upon who wins?
I don’t have an answer for this. However, no matter how shabbily they treat Castle, Castle and Stana are the winners! It’s the fans way of saying thank you for such a wonderful show and for Stana’s six seasons of being Kate Beckett. Regardless of how much or how little stage time, fans can be happy that showrunner and creator Andrew Marlowe, the show’s writers, the cast and the crew have three crystal statues to remind them ow much their work is appreciated!
