Well, I wrote an e-mail yesterday to the main sponsor of the People’s Choice Awards, Procter and Gamble, expressing my concern that Supernatural, despite winning two awards, was not invited to the Awards Ceremony.

To their credit, they did respond, as follows, and I quote:

“From:  “"P&G North America" <pg_naconsumerrelations@mailnj.custhelp.com> (pg_naconsumerrelations@mailnj.custhelp.com)

Date:  Friday, January 13, 2012 9:34 AM  

Thanks for writing, Sandra.

We’re sorry you’re upset the cast of Supernatural wasn’t featured on The People’s Choice Awards.  The show is comprised of 43 categories and we made every effort to showcase a variety of categories on the network broadcast.  Unfortunately, only 14-15 of those categories can fit into a two hour television show. 

Peoples choice award nominees who express interest in attending are always welcome at the show.

Stop back anytime.

Karen
PCA Team”

So, regarding the second last sentence, does anyone have any thoughts?

Take care.

Sandra

Who did the cast have to contact to be invited? Wouldn't that be rude,hey I want an invite??

I'm not sure how it works, Laura.

I was thinking that once they were nominated, it would be up to the Public Relations department of the show to ensure they secured an invite through the PCA channels. But I don't know.

I just wonder, with all the other shows seeming to have such a presence, what actually did happen with our show?

It's such a shame.

I don't know Sandra...sounds like a pretty lame excuse. Cliff the bodyguard tweeted that that they weren't invited and I would have assumed that if you were nominated you would get an automatic invite. Granted, winners are notified ahead of time which is why you tend to see them there but not all the other nominees. Plus it was the best TV Drama category...I could understand if it was only for best Sci-Fi/Fantasy show but Drama is a big category that they always have aired before. It just makes me sad that Supernatural was again treated like a red-headed step-child.

It's so good to hear from you, Zo. *Hugs*

Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of it all either. I thought it was decent of them to respond though.

Drama is a huge one and I too was surprised that it wasn't aired.

I'm still so excited that they won two awards though. I think it's great. :) :) :)

OMG, I was wearing my flannel nightgown, high heels, feather boa and had a glass of white wine to celebrate the win. I was dancing around to Lady GaGa's Born This Way. I don't know how she does it in high heels. *grins*

My family just smiled. They're really good about it all. :)

Yesterday, I brought in Timbits to work to celebrate along with cappucino's. I work with great people who know my SPN passion - it was lots of fun.

I hope you're doing well and I'm sending all my very best for a Happy and wonderful 2012 to you and your family.

It's good to hear from you too! *hugs*

This irked me so much I actually e-mailed them. I've never done that but it just struck me a wrong. I'm glad they won but to have no acknowledgement for the Drama category doesn't even make sense.

LOL...I can just picture you dancing aorund in that outfit! Sounds like you had a blast...don't ever change!

Mmmmm....cappucinos sound yummy right about now! Glad you work with people who appreciate your SPN passion!!!

Thank you for the well wishes. I hope you're doing well also...best of luck in 2012 to you and your family!!!

Hi Sandra!!! *WAVES*

I understand that PCA might have tons of awards and only so much time so not every award is shown. BUT, this is like the Academy Awards not airing "Best Picture." Or the Emmys not airing "Best TV Drama."

If the PCA had to cut out a lot of awards, then they could have cut "Best NEW Drama" for time and announced SPN instead.

They also could have used J&J as presenters and left the two Vampire Diaries leads at home then have them be there to accept their awards.

I am so happy they won, but, our 'little engine that could' could have used whatever publicity the PCAs might have brought.

Take care and hope you are doing well!

Hello dear JoAnne *hugs*

*Waves*

I'm so happy they won too. :) And I agree, if they weren't going to televise the award, it sure would have been wonderful to have Jared and Jensen be there as presenters.

I hope everything is well with you and I sure do love the blue spider you sent me, it's so cute. :)

I hope you're still planning on coming to the LA Con. I'm really, really looking forward to seeing you.

Take care.

*Hugs*
