    It’s not TV — It’s PBS !

    All the nominees are Emmy worthy. Great talent, produces great programming. We are truly blessed here in New York.

    In my opinion they forgot to include the great Dame Maggie Smith as Best Supporting Actress for Downton Abbey. All the actors in Downton Abbey are fantastic but she is unique.

  • Sandra Bromberg

    Congratulations! You deserve it. Thank you for presenting such wonderful programs.
