It's officially spring, the weather is starting to improve (somewhat) here in the US, and so this editors thoughts turn to...Jason Isaacs ;)  As such, I gladly herald the news that Jason has been nominated as Best Actor for his role in the UK program "The Curse of Steptoe" today by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Also nominated was UK audio book narrator (and twitter blogger extraordinaire) Stephen Fry in the "Entertainment Performance" for his work hosting the QI quiz show program on the BBC. Finally the popular series "Doctor Who" which stars David Tennant (Barty Crouch, Jr.) has been nominated in the best "Drama Series" category.  The BAFTA Television Awards will be presented on Sunday, April 26th in London England. Congratulations Jason and Stephen!

On a related note, actor Jason Isaacs will be the guest on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross program on Friday, April 3rd. He is mentioned as "Harry Potter actor," but we do not know if he will discuss his return appearance as Lucius Malfoy in Deathly Hallows or what the topics of discussion will involve. Anyone who can capture video of the show which airs in the UK on BBC One at 10:35pm, please send it in.

Jason will be amazing on Ross’s programme. I need to figure out how to take a video from my Sky+ box to the leaky.

And Steven Fry is a total LEGEND as host of QI – he needs a BAFTA just for the episode that Emma Tompison appeared and talked about Alan Rickman!!! That was FUNNY!

I always knew Jason was a terrific actor. He plays villians so well long before he became our Mr. Malfoy.

Congrats to all our nominees!!! They all deserve a great big BAFTA. Can’t wait to see the lovely Jason with Jonathan Ross :-) !!!!!!!!!! David Tennant has been my favourite Dr. Who, and I’m going to miss him a lot. As for the amazing, incredible, wonderful Stephen Fry, QI is the BEST show ever done in the history of television, and I’m not exaggerating :-D, ha, ha! That recent episode with Emma Thompson, and John Sessions doing an impression of Alan Rickman, has already become legendary.
