    Award-Winning Sci-Fi Series, Distributed on Home Video By ADV Films, Nominated For Outstanding Costumes for a Series

    The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced that Farscape, the acclaimed Jim Henson Television sci-fi series called "the best science-fiction series on TV" by TV Guide, has received its first Emmy® award nomination, for Outstanding Costumes for a Series.

    "We're tremendously excited about Farscape's Emmy® nomination," said ADV President, CEO and Founder John Ledford. "The extraordinary costumes that the Henson team creates for the show are an indispensable element of Farscape's seamless blend of seriously creative science fiction and deeply complex character development. We're exceptionally proud to be a part of the Farscape family."

    "Farscape's Emmy® nomination is a testament to the creativity featured in the series from costumes and writing, to special effects, makeup, and all other production elements," said Michael R.

    Hehe, well, more on the subject:

    That ROCKS! I was just watching Frascape a little while ago. What a great show. It seems to have taken well with the Sci-fi crowd also, so I'm sure it will be around for many more seasons. Ah...on a channel that only shows my fav. show on Saturday early mornings (Mystery Science Theater 3000...watch it, wont you?), it is nice to see that beacon of light that is, Farscape :D

    (Or is there still another "Hugbees" to go? It's been awhile since I've seen that episode)

  18. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    Heh, I cannot remember either. I haven't watched any F! in a while, being I've been busy with so much other stuff. I will review the episode (if I can find that tape) and let you know.



  19. EmmyMik

    EmmyMik New Member

    Yeah, it's been awhile since I've seen F! as well (I have a tape full of episodes, however it's buried under my mountain of Muppet tapes. I may never see that tape again!). BTW, I'm not sure if you've seen the Dark Crystal or not (if you haven't seen it, then just skip this sentence), but doesn't that episode sorta remind you of parts of the Dark Crystal (the whole essence stealing part)? It's just an observation I made.

    And now I am in search of that tape...

  20. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    Heh, Yes, many tapes a buried under other tapes in my room. I keep it pretty well organized though, so its all okay.

    Yes, I have the Dark Crystal. It is kind of similar, the whole essence thing and all. It would have been crazy if the Skeksis' were like that weird monster woman though! hehehe :D
