    I still don't understand why this group that only appeared three years ago couldn't be troubled to do supporting categories for movies and miniseries (unless they were following the dumb idea that even the Emmys have since abandoned) or felt they had to go unisex in the guest performers in comedy and drama series instead of having a guest actor and guest actress as they do in the acting races among the regulars. From their name, are they some sort of spinoff from the BFCA since they used to do TV movies along with their film awards?
