Not too long ago, the Emmy’s came and went and prompted me to write a blog about how much the Emmy’s sucked.
Well, now it’s time to move on to the People’s Choice awards. It hasn’t even been on yet, but I went to go help vote up Journeyman tonight (and everyone who loves Journeyman should at least go vote because maybe it will help save the show – it’s under Favorite New Show).
So as I’m there and I notice the other categories. The first of which is Best TV Comedy. The nominees:
King of Queens, My Name is Earl and Two and a Half Men
I’m sorry, I don’t watch any of those, but how on earth does The Office and 30 Rock not at least warrant a nomination? I’ve watched My Name is Earl and I’ve never found it that funny.
The next category turns the entire thing into an utter JOKE. Favorite Movie Comedy:
Knocked Up, The Simpson’s Movie and Wild Hogs
Ummm, Wild Hogs? Really? The movie that got a 15% on Rotten Tomatoes? Not Superbad? WTH is going on here? Who nominates these things?
If you answer “people”, then “people” suck.
Next up…Favorite Independent Film:
Becoming Jane, A Mighty Heart and Sicko
Anyways, there are some other puzzling choices that you can see for yourself if you want, but this is just another sign that these side-show award ceremonies need to go. Keep the Oscars and SAG Awards of course, but the rest are meaningless.
