Enterprise Emmy win

Trek saves face in woeful haul for cult programmes.

It's a disappointing awards year for cult tv fans this year - at last night's 56th Annual Emmy Awards, only four awards were won by genre programming - and even those weren't exactly in the most exciting categories.

On a board swept by HBO's slightly fantastical, but not actually fantasy mini-series Angels in America, Star Trek: Enterprise (as we must now learn to call it), did manage to hold its head up with two awards. They were Best Music Composition for a Series, for the episode Similitude, and Best Visual Effects for a Series, for Countdown.

The only other awards claimed by cult programmes were, unsurprisingly, Best Animated Programme, which went to Star Wars: Clone Wars, and the thrilling Best Stunt Coordination, won by 24.

Still, better luck next year, eh?
