Aacta.s decision this year to combine the best TV comedy and best light entertainment series into one category has drawn fire from some of the leading lights of the comedy business.

Actor/director Josh Lawson describes the move as .baffling and insulting for both categories. and complains there is only one category for acting- best performance in a TV comedy- compared with four for acting in TV dramas. .What are we to take away from this - that comedy is somehow easier? That people who work on comedies don't work as hard? That actors who do comedy aren't as talented or as deserving of accolades,. asks Lawson, who stars in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (which opens in Australia on December 19) and in Us thriller Crave (which launches in the Us on Friday). .What a slap in the face for all the hard working, incredibly talented Australians who work »
