The Canadian Screen Awards are like the Oscars and Emmys for Canadian productions. Maybe you've never heard of them but they are "big in Canada".
Winning one is proof of one's "notability" in Canadian entertainment, okay?

Look at all the red links and non-links. Hundreds of them:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6th_Canad ... een_Awards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5th_Canad ... een_Awards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4th_Canad ... een_Awards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3rd_Canad ... een_Awards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2nd_Canad ... een_Awards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_Canad ... een_Awards

The predecessor awards, the Genie Awards and Gemini Awards, looks very similar.
Guess Canada doesn't count for much, eh?

Have another British TV show that Wikipedia ignores. Mr. Renkow has cerebral palsy and apparently uses his disability to troll people. That might explain why the PC-saturated WP insider gang wants nothing to do with him or his show.

The LA Times article from 2014 has this bit of stupidity:

Quote:
...Les' story is intimately entwined with that of his mother country, where his mother became pregnant in an affair and bore him in 1954. (He would not learn his father's identity until he returned to Hungary years later, while researching his book.) Remember, Hungary fought on the side of the Axis and then was overrun by the Soviet "liberators."


What do you think the Red Army was going to do, Janet Fitch? Just bypass a country whose capital was used by the Wehrmacht as a key defensive point in 1944-45? The whole point of Soviet occupation after WWII was to make damn certain nobody could mount an "easy" invasion of the USSR again from Western Europe by building a defensive ring of Communist states west of it. This was the price of fascism in Europe, a fact that has been forgotten since 1989 and 1991. The dimness of Americans astounds me sometimes.

But to get back to why Les (Laszlo) Plesko doesn't have an article - Wikipedia is in utter decay when it concerns volunteers, and none of them know jack-shit about modern American fiction for all the reasons you pointed out on the Book Wiki. I could write something, but my IP is known.

YET ANOTHER tv show completely unnoticed on Wikipedia, this time an HBO "semi-mockumentary":

There is NO mention on Wikipedia of Stefan Mandel. He's not even mentioned in the Romanian-language Wikipedia.

Why?

I was told recently about this very obscure distributor of low-budget "exploitation" films and assorted TV shows. Some of their content is starting to appear on streaming tv channels, I'm guessing that's the "final frontier" for all this flotsam from the 1940s thru 1980s. Many of the shows and movies listed on this site are NOT mentioned on Wikipedia, except the more famous ones for obvious reasons (Gigantor as an early Japanese anime, the Bill Cosby Show from 1969, etc).
