Humanitas has spoken…

Warathome2Congrats to all the Humanitas Prize finalists. The Humanitas honors some times are the subject of a little ribbing for focusing on feel-good and Explicitly Uplifting fare, but the truth is most writers covet these awards, if only because they are so focused on scribes. Plus, these laurels come with cold, hard cash attached, which never hurts.

There are some oddly pedestrian choices on the list this year and some interesting picks. The biggest surprise is the nod to Fox’s “The War at Home.” It’s hardly unusual for the Humanitas to shine a light on a canceled show, but it is in this case. “War at Home” wasn’t exactly a critical darling in its two-season run on Fox. I can’t really comment, having never watched beyond the pilot seg. I couldn’t find an image from the episode “Kenny Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” which earned the nom for series creator Rob Lotterstein, but I did find a shot, posted above, of an episode with a guest shot by George Segal. And since I’ve always loved “Where’s Poppa?”…A full list of Humanitas noms, or finalists in the org’s parlance, can be found here courtesy of Variety’s hard-working, TV-loving Stuart Levine.
