Congratulations to the Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences on providing ample evidence their annual beauty pageant is not to be taken seriously.

Where’s the love for “The Wire”?

Speaking of which, if you’re in the Baltimore area next week and you’d like to commiserate with others over this gross injustice, you might want to consider the following event :

Michael Kostroff (unscrupulous gang attorney Maury Levy on The Wire) will be signing copies of his popular book, Letters from Backstage: The Adventures of a Touring Stage Actor. The book is a funny, behind-the-scenes chronicle of Kostroff’s two years on the road as an actor in The Producers and Les Miserables. He’ll be reading chapters, meeting fans and taking questions about his career, life on the road and his role on The Wire.
