I’d like to remind that Benjamin received a PRISM Award for his Performance in a Drama Multi-Episode Storyline for “The Cleaner” on April 23, 2009. “The Cleaner,” instead, was nominated for Best Drama Episode for episode “Meet the Joneses,” and for Best Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline for episodes “Here Comes the Boom,” “To Catch a Fed,” “Back To One” and “Five Little Words” (the second series of “The Cleaner” had yet to air when 2009 PRISM Awards nominees and winners were chosen).
