Cincinnati native Jay Moriarty, who wrote for The Jeffersons for seven seasons, can't wait to see ABC's recreation of a 1976 All In The Family episode on ABC's Live In Front Of A Studio Audience Wednesday (8 p.m. Dec. 18, Channel 9, ABC).

He and his partner Mike Milligan wrote it for creator Norman Lear.

If “Carol” wins any Academy Awards, it would be a big upset after all the film awards ignoring  the Cate Blanchett-Rooney Mara movie this month.

Blanchett and Mara, who starred in the 1952 love story shot here in 2014, again were shut out at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Saturday, as “Carol” was at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice awards.

Blanchett was up for best actress; Mara for supporting actress. “Carol” was not nominated for a SAG best picture award. The SAG winners were familiar faces from January’s award circuit:

In case you missed the 67th annual Prime-Time Emmy Awards on Fox Sunday night, you didn’t miss much.

With all the competition from Netflix, Amazon and other online services, the 2014-15 was one of the best TV seasons ever. And the Fox telecast hosted by comedian Andy Samberg was perhaps the worst, or at least the raunchiest with references to porn and oral sex in the first hour.

If you stayed around for the end, the best moments came in the final hour:

--Comedian Tracy Morgan walking on stage 15 months after the New Jersey traffic accident which took life of his friend James McNair, to present the best drama award to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the big winner Sunday night. (See full list below)

--Viola Davis (ABC’s “How To Get Away With Murder”) quoting former slave Harriet Tubman after becoming the first African-American woman to win the drama best actress award. She also said:  “Let me tell you something: the only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”
