Emmys for Kevin Costner (Actor, Miniseries or Movie), Tom Berenger (Supporting Actor, Miniseries or Movie) and Don Cassidy (Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Miniseries or a Movie)!

I wish there was some sort of “Best All-Cast” category, because everybody involved with “Hatfields and McCoys” did a fantastic job!

I’m curious how the series will be received in the UK. Last thing I heard, Channel 5 will show it in October.

You can already pre-order the DVD on amazon; it’s scheduled for release 0n 12 November.

Look who’s at the Emmy’s…

Noel Fisher campaigns for the Emmy Awards. And Beards. Beard Awards?

While I think beards are for wizards and Rangers of the North only, I fully support Noel Fisher in this. And all Beard Awards should go to Hatfields & McCoys.

Beard Award for the win!

Then again… maybe not.

“New” as in “just turned up”; I think it’s from last year?

Damian O’Hare

In other news: the “Hatfields & McCoys” DVD/Blu-ray is now available; however, it’s Region 1. No news yet on when we can expect the Region 2 DVD. The complete series and Damian O’Hare as Ellison Hatfield aside, you’ll also get some extras: a 30 minute “making of” featurette and the “I Know These Hills” music video, featuring Costner and his Modern West band.

And as you’re already here, why not helping us to meet our target for our 5th anniversary “Magic Breakfast” charity drive? Up to 700,000 children arrive at school too hungry to learn every day. Magic Breakfast works with primary schools across the UK with the aim to make sure every child has access to the right fuel for learning to reach their full potential.
