Because Ugly Betty fans are all feeling down right now (some of your comments about the show’s cancellation are heart-breaking), I thought I’d periodically post something that brings to mind the many good times associated with Ugly Betty.
This is one of my favorite moments:
It’s funny – I used to joke about America Ferrera automatically winning every award she qualified for, but the 2007 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series was her only Emmy.
America was so gracious (as I recall, that particular Emmy broadcast was awful – the “in the round” setting was so distracting).
Seeing the happy looks on the Ugly Betty cast and staff really brings home the fact that the show really had / has a family atmosphere, and the cast and crew truly like one another.
Which, unfortunately brings up another sad fact: the cast and crew had been entirely uprooted with the move to New York. I would imagine that some of the cast will stay in NYC, and others will move back to LA) . You would guess that Michael Urie would stay in NY, with all the stage opportunities. I’m not sure about Becki Newton, though. It will be sad to break up Marc and Mandy, if that happens.
I’ll be posting more great moments from the show (both on-screen and off) in the coming weeks.
