The cast of Dr. Horrible was in a very good 2-minute video on the 2009 Emmys. Kristin Chenoweth from Pushing Daisies won the supporting actress Emmy, and Ben from Lost won supporting actor. Chenoweth was funny as she shilled for employment. Sheldon didn't win for Big Bang Theory, but Mad-Eye Moody and Jessica Lange from King Kong did, for dramatic things I did not see because they contained neither apes or wizards.

The RevSF boards are trying to work through this crisis now.
Jedi people, you're on your own with this one. We allow you to grow a beard, wear a bathrobe and carry a toy lightsaber and call yourself a Star Wars costume wearer. But oh no, you had to push it.
You don't see the founder of the International Church of Jedism wearing his floppy hat when he goes to the store with Granny.
