No awards for Props Divas?

Mutterings continued.

From The Stage: "Awards shows such as the National Television Awards (ITV1, Wednesday) are all very well, but they do have a tendency to concentrate on the visual figureheads of each programme — pretty much the only awards given out in terms of technical skill are the Actor and Actress gongs, and even then (especially with the NTAs) the award often ends up in the hands of the shows with the largest fan base. It’s no surprise that Doctor Who actors are in the running for the acting awards at the NTAs this week, of course, and there’s every possibility that they’ll replicate last year’s double, where Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper won.

For me, though, it’s the craft awards that really allow the true talent to shine out. For all our feting of the big name stars, TV is a highly collaborative medium. And the breadth of this year’s Royal Television Society (RTS) Craft and Design Awards nominations show the best of British telly talent." Dr Who is nominated for four awards - Costume, Make Up Design, Production Design, Digital Effects.

Temara the Orang is now in Indonesia as part of the pilot release program. Tomorrow she's off to Jambi and then a trip in a helicopter to Bukit Tigapuluh National Park.

has created some rather gorgeous Winged Nearcats that are sort of based on Milo and Gus. Haven't worked out which ones I want yet, but I will have some. Oh yes! I will have some!
