'Fringe' actors accept their EWwy Awards -- VIDEO

The actors on Fringe may have gotten teary at Comic-Con talking about the end of the series, but on set last week, they sang a stronger tune. They’re about halfway through filming their final season, and the end game still seems like a distant future, most said.

But when EW handed Anna Torv a pair of tiny golden Ewes — her awards for winning Best Actress in a Drama and Best Drama in EW’s 5th annual EWwys — that’s when she began to tear up. And who can blame her? 1) The sheep are adorable. And 2) as you’ll hear her say, the statues come from the people who kept the show alive for five years.

Click below to watch Torv, John Noble, and former executive producer Jeff Pinkner accept their bounty. (Note: We made sure Josh Jackson got his as well!)

UPDATEFringe executive producer/showrunner J.H. Wyman also shared some kind words! “On behalf of everyone involved in Fringe, I want to take a moment to thank all of our incredible fans who voted and have made Fringe the winner of Entertainment Weekly’s Best Drama Series EWwy Award for the third year in a row,” he tells EW. “We are honored to have had such a dedicated and loyal fanbase supporting this show over the years, and we are working overtime to deliver an unforgettable fifth and final season.”

Anna Torv thanks 'Fringe' fans for EWwy repeat

On Friday, we announced the winners of our 5th Annual EWwy Awards, which honor the shows and actors that EW and its readers felt deserved to be nominated or an Emmy but weren’t. More than 250,000 votes were counted in this year’s 10 categories. While Community dominated the comedy side (snagging Best Comedy, Best Actor for Joel McHale, Best Supporting Actor for Danny Pudi, and Best Supporting Actress for Alison Brie), Fringe was the clear favorite in the drama categories earning Best Drama for the third year in a row along with second wins for Best Supporting Actor John Noble and Best Actress Anna Torv. “What can I say that I haven’t said before?” Torv says in a statement to EW. “Our fans are aces and EW readers are no exception. Their support has been invaluable, and I’ll be cradling my EWwy Award as Fringe crosses the finish line.”

We’re making plans to visit the Fringe and Community sets to hand-deliver their EWwy trophies later this month, so stay tuned for actual EWwy cradling.

Entertainment Geekly: The fascinating, flawed 'Fringe' season finale

Last Friday, the fourth season of Fringe ended with an action-packed finale. There was a shocking special guest star, a shocking near-death, a shocking pregnancy…and, in the end, a shocking lack of closure on a season that began with a controversial timeline reboot. On today’s episode of Entertainment Geekly, we analyze the finale in the context of the ambitious season, and offer some thoughts about what lies ahead in the final 13 episodes. Topics include: The crucial narrative importance of the alternate universe, a theory about the origin of the Observer-centric “Letters of Transit” episode, some totally expected praise for John Noble, some perhaps-less-expected praise for Lincoln Lee, and a tangential exploration of the specific anxiety felt by fans of low-rated TV shows.

Leonard Nimoy 'talking' about returning for 'Star Trek' sequel?

Leonard Nimoy has been talking retirement for a couple years now. And why not? His 2009 appearance in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot felt like a valediction for Nimoy’s most iconic role and for his entire era of Star Trek history — not to mention an implicit assertion that, in modern geekdom, Spock/Nimoy has probably become a more important and popular figure than Kirk/Shatner. Then, in 2010, the season 2 finale of Fringe featured a send-off for Nimoy’s mysterious William Bell that seemed like an appropriately cosmic exit. The problem is that, like Jay-Z before him, Nimoy just keeps on working through his retirement. And although his output lately has been limited to voice roles — on Fringe, in Transformers: Tokyo Drift, and most recently on The Big Bang Theory — Nimoy might be staging a full-scale return.
