Oscar StatuettesAward season is in full effect and coming this Sunday is the biggest show of them all: The Academy Awards. I am not a big fan of award shows. Full of long winded speeches and lame tele-prompted jokes that try too hard to be funny but fall so flat when being read by a celebrity that clearly doesn’t get the funny…..

When it comes to the Academy, I especially tune out. I love the red carpet part but usually I have only heard of a handful of the movies that are selected. And chances are, I didn’t shell out the $10 to see those I heard of (unless He’s just not that into you or Confessions of a Shopaholic happen to get nominated next year, in which case, I will amend that sentence).

So instead of hyping up the movie awards that I know nothing about, I thought I would make up my own Academy Awards of Sports Stuff (that I also don’t know anything about but that’s besides the point!)

This series will run through Sunday and I’ll be announcing the winners at 12:01 a.m., Monday, February 23. Be sure to cast your ballots for your fave!

Awards will be given out for: Best Costume Design, Best Music (Soundtrack or Score/ National Anthem/ Original Song), Animated Film, Visual or Special Effects, Cinematography, Makeup, Film Editing, Documentary Feature & Short, Foreign Language Film, Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay / Original Screenplay), Best Actor (Lead/Supporting) Best Actress (Lead/Supporting) Best Movie Mini-Series, and of course Best Picture.

If you have suggestions for nominees, please email me asap! Just like the other Big Name Award Shows, we’ll be starting with the “smaller” categories and working up to the fan favorites Best Actors & Best Picture as the week goes on.

There will also be a Red Carpet Awards Ceremony to honor the Big Night and Fashion Week in NYC.

To be Qualified for Nomination: The event, photo, moment, commercial, highlight, clip etc. must have occurred sometime between January 1, 2008 and February 17, 2009 (because that’s when I thought of the idea!) unless I feel otherwise, i.e.–not all songs/soundtracks were produced in 2008 but it did not matter, I picked them anyway.

    Good call! Thank you so much for pointing that out! I had no idea the contact page was MIA. It’s back up and running now! Look forward to talking to you soon–especially because Fantasy Football is WAY over my head!

  3. Nic Said,

    Hey, thanks for the visit and the comments on the blog. I really appreciate them.

    I also like your blog as well… I’ve voted here on your polls (if KryptoNate doesn’t win, I’ll be sad), and I’m sure I’ll be back as well.

    Hi Jen,

    This sounds fun – I’m looking forward to what the results will be! (as in: this is much better than the awards shows on television!)
