Pop Culture Nexus Presents the FRIMMYS: Where ‘Fringe’ Is the Only Show Eligible for All the Awards

At this point, I think all of us Fringe fans are used to the disappointment following the announcement of the Emmy nominations. Every year the tiny bit of hope I have that Fringe will finally get nominated shrinks smaller and smaller. But after four seasons of fantastic acting, writing, directing, and overall quality TV, I think we can all agree that we don’t need any Emmy nominations to prove how great our show is. We appreciate Fringe‘s brilliance, and that’s what’s important. That, and the fact that the show got a fifth season. Still, it’s tough to see all the hard work by our beloved Fringe cast and crew go unrecognized. So since Fringe didn’t get any love from the Emmys, we thought we’d create our own awards to celebrate the most outstanding show on television. Ladies and gentlemen, we present the first annual Frimmy Awards…
