What a send-off for a great show that could be headed back to the big screen, that in Friday Night Lights. And HBO’s rough and tumble Sean Bean’s ‘Game of Thrones’ was a winner among others at last night’s Television Critics Awards in Beverly Hills last night.
Friday Night Lights ends its five year run as Program of the Year with a purely spectacular effort that saw a limited audience yet was one of television’s best. The show, as we reported earlier this week, could be headed back to the big screen as producers look to continue working with a great cast.
