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.

Awesome news :)
Stephen Fry and Jason Isaacs are amazing actors and totally deserve their award nominations, so I dont know the shows they’re nominated for but, if their performances are anything like we know & love, I just know they’re totally awesome.

Jason deserves it. He’s a fantastic actor. My favourite villain-actor, I think. :)

Thanks for the heads up about Jason’s appearance of Wossy! Can’t wait to see that. Jason is incredibly funny and sweet in interviews. And congrats to him for his Bafta nom. The Curse of Steptoe was one of my fave dramas from last year. Also congrats to David Tennant, he has Doctor Who AND Einstein and Eddington (he starred in both) nominated.
