Lately, I’ve been thinking about the ways that I could improve the annual I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards, and today I am announcing one new category that will hopefully make the annual awards lists complete. On top of that, I am also retiring (or discontinuing) a related television award that has been a part of the IJR Awards the last two years.
Best Supporting Performance by an Actor in a Television Show
Again, I must stress that actor, in this case, is not gender-specific. I had been thinking about a way in which I could honor these actors. I think this was a noteworthy blindspot in the television awards.
Best Guest Performance by an Actor in a Television Show
Finally, this is the award that I am discontinuing. You see, I think that the supporting performance category can honor the noteworthy guest performances as well. I don’t think you need a category for guest performers, but the supporting performance award is necessary, I think.
And that’s all for now. Check back in late November or early December for the Television nominations.
