Gilmore Girls

Feeling sad - no more Gilmore Girls!
- finished watching the final episodes of 7th season,
the last one
.
Gilmore Girls received an American Film Institute Award
and two Viewers For Quality Television Awards,
and was named New Program of the Year by the Television Critics Association.
The show won an Emmy for its only nomination:
2004's Outstanding Makeup for
a Series for the episode "The Festival of Living Art".
The show's actors have received many awards for their work on the series.
Graham won two Family Television Awards
and she won Teen Choice Award for Best TV Mom twice as well.
Alexis Bledel has won a Young Artist Award
and a Family Television Award.
The series also won a Family Television Award for New Series,
and was named Best Family TV Drama Series by the Young Artist Awards
.
Music plays a large part in the show.
Most of the main or recurring characters on the show
have had their musical tastes revealed at one time or another.
Lorelai famously likes '80s music including
The Bangles, XTC, The Go-Go's, David Bowie, Metallica, U2, and Brian Eno,
and her old bedroom at her parents' home has
Duran Duran posters on the walls.
.
Lane is a music enthusiast, and her band,
Hep Alien (which is an anagram of producer Helen Pai's name),
plays rock with different influences,
and Sebastian Bach, formerly of Skid Row, plays Gil, the band's guitarist.
.
In 2002, a soundtrack to the show was released
by Rhino Records, entitled
Our Little Corner of the World: Music from Gilmore Girls.
The CD booklet features anecdotes from show producers
Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino
covering the large part music has played in their lives.
