Aaron: How's work today?
Alice: Eh, it's okay. I'm doing Emmy™ research.
Alice: Do you have any idea how many Emmys™ Cloris Leachman has been nominated for? I've got a hand cramp now.
Aaron: I can only imagine.
Alice: Oddly, there seem to be no nominations for her time on "Facts of Life".
Alice: I can't imagine why.
Aaron: That's blasphemy.
Alice: I know! She was such a support to Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Jo after Mrs. Garret left. Who'd have thought that she wouldn't be rewarded for such stellar work?
Aaron: Goddamn Charlotte Rae stole all the friggin limelight.
Alice: I know. She's so selfish.
Alice: SHE was nominated for "The Facts of Life"
Aaron: Of course.
Alice: Didn't win though.
Alice: Carol Kane did for "Taxi"
Aaron: Whatever. She really only had to deal with Latka.
Alice: Ah, 1982. What a year for comedy.
Alice: All five nominees for best supporting actor in a drama that year were from "Hill Street Blues"
Alice: Was it the only drama on tv?
Aaron: Someone at the Emmys™ thought it would be a funny joke.
Alice: Probably. Those wacky kids at the Emmys™ have such a sense of humour!
Aaron: Yeah, like saying nuts to Cloris Leachman for instance.
Alice: Well, she has had an impressive 19 nominations. Just none for "Facts of Life"
Aaron: Well, screw them anyway.
Alice: Hee hee! In 1987, "Facts of Life" was nominated for outstanding achievement in hairstlying for a series.
Aaron: How many awards do they give away?
Alice: Apparently a kazillion
Aaron: Award for outstanding achievement in placing marks during blocking.
Alice: An example of 1987 "Facts of Life" hairstlying:
Alice: Indeed. What a dashing hairstyle!
Alice: Oh, scary!
Aaron: I hope to god Cloris doesn't see it.
Alice: I think she's selling it
Aaron: Think she's trying to drum up publicity for a Leachman resurgance?
Alice: Damn skippy.
