    We tend to zoom in on those small, local events. I haven’t heard of LN winning any awards in Germany, France, or Italy. Or in India. Or in Japan. Or in Russia. Or in Brazil, Argentina, or Bolivia. Or in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya or anywhere else on the African continent. There are just a handful off corrupt jurors in the UK and USA, and that’s pretty much it.

    Reed and his doc. team are all British, as are his originating 'sponsors' (Channel 4 TV). It's unlikely that an English-language, largely British-made TV programme would win any TV awards in Europe- especially given Brexit this year- or indeed anywhere else unless they have awards for 'international TV programmes' (where anything British is generally viewed as 'colonial' or worse). Most TV award systems seem to concentrate on their home-grown industries.

    That’s true. So it’s a very local issue that the rest of the world doesn’t care about. Some corrupt Brits patting each other on the back. These people like to pretend they’re the center of the world, but that’s far from the truth.

    BAFTA is now a joke! Interesting to know what's the eyeball statistics are!

    Figures!........ Having a "Factual" category purely created just for the Greed 3
    Factual ? Geez!..
    Who does the fact checks,
    Who's there to verify if the facts were correct?
    Who does the checks & balances?
    No need to answer..

    Yep, things are much calmer here on the continent.

    I think, one of the reasons for some of the vicious attacks is that in the eyes of the white British establishment, MJ was hanging out with the wrong people. His friendship with Mohamed Al-Fayed certainly didn’t win him any bonus points.

    If you’re an anti-racist like MJ, you’re automatically calling out the elephant in the room, just by who you are and the people you hang out with. People with racist tendencies will feel attacked just by your presence.

    But that’s taking it a bit offtopic, I guess. Just a thought that I had with my morning coffee.

    Awards shows are a joke now. they mostly all rigged now. that why me and my mom don't watch them anymore. i think actually winning something days are gone. really sad.

    You are correct. It is like MJ is their bread and butter to talk about in order to stay afloat and make money; otherwise, they make much of nothing. This is going to backfire on them.

    This was going on way before MJ was around him in the UK media even before the accusations. I remember 1986 when it became known MJ brought the Beatles catalog.

    I didn’t mean to say that’s the only reason, of course.
