The Academy Awards were this weekend, and while many have commented on the awards themselves, I would have thought more blogs would be giving their own awards. A little late, but I offer you my own Blogger Academy Awards.
Best motion picture of the year
Not sure I could give this award to only one blogger. So I will give this award to two different bloggers, one male and one female. The female blogger is Shannon, and she deserves the award because of the pictures of her on her blog. It seems like every other comment she makes on my blog has a different picture associated with her profile. And she takes such lovely pictures. In fact, recently, she took some really nice pictures of her, um, pussy. Cutest pussy I have seen in quite some time. You see, she got a new member of the family, a cat. Boys, what did you think I was talking about?
For the Male Picture of the Year, the award goes to Joe. Forget HNT (Half Naked Thursday), Joe gives us "The Week in Pictures" every Friday he is not jet-setting it across the country. The premise is that he takes funny pictures and makes up captions. Really, pee-in-your-panties funny. He even allowed mere mortals to try their luck with captions one week. Really, really funny.
Honorable mention goes to Mark. His blog is a real picture blog, not with the naked kind either. Real artistic pictures. My favorites are of snow and winter (B&W). I don't like the cold stuff in real life, but it is really nice to look at in a picture. And he knows about aperture, F-stops, lighting, all that camera stuff. I know, some people will "catch lightning in a bottle" every once in a while, snapping a great picture. He knows the technical stuff and is much more likely to take a wonderful picture. So he wins the Technical Achievement Award for his picture. You know, the Academy Awards Ceremony that happened before the other Academy Awards Ceremony.
Performance by an actor in a leading role
For his very unusual blog, I would say that Ddot wins this award for sheer volume of comments. The Academy Awards seems to be a popularity contest anyway, and who is more popular than Ddot? He was nearly eliminated from competition by his own IT department, which tried to filter the Internet sites he could reach. And we all know what that means, little Miss Leesa and her smut don't get through. Plus he can't post.
Performance by an actor in a supporting role
For his job in setting up Just Walking, the award goes to Prata. We thought it would be fun to start of collaborative blog to write a story; we called it doodling. And prata was the main reason for this – supporting so many others. Now, we have only had about ten posts to date, but it is a fun experiment to be part of. Anyone interested should go over there and make a comment in the comments section. Prata will respond.
Performance by an actress in a leading role
The winner of this award is Monica. I get the feeling that Monica is a supporting role kind of gal, but deserves to be a leading role lady. The only complaint I have is that she uses a blog hosted by MSN, and more than half the time, I can't post a response. Darned IT folks blocking me. They know I say bad things about Microsoft, and they lock me out.
Honorable mention would go to Goddess. I love just reading her, listening to streaming music, wondering about this chick. Her prose is so poetic. I introduced Ddot to her – one of my achievements in blogland. Plus she is a Southern woman, and I tend to see things similarly to her.
Performance by an actress in a supporting role
For this, the award goes to Georgia Peach. And this has little to do with her blog as well. Her blog is funny, sometimes serious, sometimes just a cool place to hang out. But she supports so many other bloggers, giving them encouragement, revealing parts of her life that many of us would want to remain hidden. You know, the parts of your life when you are growing up, making mistakes. Okay, I have a soft spot for GP, you know that, but she has made some wonderful comments on others' blogs.
Okay, in the Academy Awards, this is one of those awards that does not have the glamour. But this is an important award for me. The Oscar goes to our very own ~Deb. If you read her, her best posts are her stories. Oh, how I love her stories. Funny stories, touching stories, stories that matter. At least to me. Now she comments well as well, but she is at her best when writing. But what can you expect from a professional writer.
Achievement in visual effects
The Oscar goes to Video X for some of her posts. VX has a way of painting a picture that you don't forget. To this date, I remember her story about her peeing herself while on a trip with so many witnesses.
Okay, this award goes to someone who probably wants to be a recluse. Touch tushie. The award goes to Muse. Musie has had such an original life. Thus, she wins this award. I absolutely love the way she writes. She also won a Hottie of the Month/Year award – and I can't remember what the site is. Sorry. But that is just icing on the cake. She writes what she feels – and take it from a gal who sometimes shields my most personal thoughts. That is hard to do.
Best live action short film
I am not sure if Kathi still reads me, but I love reading about Kathi's life. Her life seems so real, so American Pie lovely. She has handsome boys, a sense of humor and gives us a glimpse into the sanity that is her life. If you want to live vicariously through the life of a normal person, visit her. Okay, I think I have officially offended all of the other award winners. Crap, crap, crap.
Best foreign language film of the year
This is one of those awards where the winner ran away with the award and hid. The winner goes to Grant, who has such a different voice. Not a good voice or a bad voice, but a terribly unique voice in the world.
Honorable mention would go to Trappend In Colorado. Just yanking his chain – since he works for the Department of the Interior, I figured it would be ironic for someone working for that department winning a foreign award.
Best animated short film
The winner is Mallory. Ms. Mallory writes about all sorts of things – nice short entries about chemical stuff, finance stuff (when the CFO or whomever steals tons of cash), occasionally wonderful family stuff. Really interesting, very different stuff. And I pretend to understand by saying stuff like, "I understand that more than 80 PSI will cause stress fractures in the . . . ." I am a complete fraud.
Achievement in makeup
Okay, I would guess most of the ladies would guess this one. And the winner is Mike. I just like to tease Mike. Probably because he seems to enjoy making fun of himself. But he recently was reviewed by a blog site and it turned out rather well for Mikey. He has a wonderful blog, and if you don't already visit him, don't. I just don't want to share. Actually, you are sharing with ~deb, his virtual significant other. And it makes me a tad jealous.
Of your name is not on this list, consider this: this is a list of award winners, and it sometimes is better to look upon them than to win one yourself. Besides, if you win such an award, you have to find a place for it and dust it regularly. However, I have been told that they make excellent doorstops.
