Missed the show myself due to work - so unfortunate for me!

Thanks for writing this up.

Take care!

This list must've taken forever to put together. Thanks so much!

I watched Jesus Camp last night. And again this afternoon. Thanks for letting me confirm that it was nominated. Much deserved.

Furkids:
You are welcome :) You missed the show but definitely not the results!

Later.

Phoenix:
You are are welcome :) This list took me a week to finish. A very tedious job coupled with my busy schedule.

Bye for now.

Owlhouse:
I'm glad that I could be of help.
Take care and thanks for stopping by :)
