Finally, Vance received an Emmy for his work on Lonesome Crow. Two years of filming in New Mexico with Robert Duvall and a host of others, Vance's dreams have finally been seen. The 38 hour mini-series came to the T.V. screen despite protests from animal rights activists. Tonight he received the highest praise by the public and his fellow actors, the elusive Emmy.
"It has been a long journey and I finally made it. All the hard work was worth every minute away from home and my family. At the last minute there were protests that my outfit was not authentic enough to garner an award. They said something about my cowboy hat not being completely accurate." Robert and I have plans for another made for television movie called Lonesome buzzard, this would be our triumphant triple crown in the "Lonesome" series. I'd like to thank my employer, Placido, for letting me take time off to make the movie. Meanwhile, Rick's career is about to skyrocket with the release of his new novel.....stay tuned.
