TV on the Brain Awards 08

One reason to have your own blog, besides ranting, is you get to nominate people who don’t care for awards that mean nothing, simply for your own amusement.

So Welcome! To my awards for the TV Season 07-08 as made up and voted on by me.

Most laughs per half hourThe Soup. Bless you, Joel McHale and your cruel but clever sense of humor.

Best Product Placement – 30 Rock! For Tina Fey after discussing a Verizon phone, looked directly into the camera and said “Can we have our money now?”

Most annoying OTH moment – Jamie. Um, all of the times he mugs for the camera. Which is every time.

Best OTH line (yes there was one)– “Can I ask about you and Lucas or is that like saying Voldemort?”

Best Office Spittake- Dwight kills Angela’s cat…and all the inspired dialogue that was associated with this story line

Angela: Hey.
Dwight: Hey monkey.
Angela: Any problems?
Dwight: Well you left the TV on, and your cat is dead.
Angela: What!?
Dwight: Sparkles, the white one, is dead.
Angela: Sprinkles.
Dwight: That was the sick one, right?
Angela: Uh-huh. But I thought she had more time.
Dwight: No.
Angela: Did she look… When you saw her how was she looking?
Dwight: Really dead. Like a… just a dead cat.
Angela: [sobbing]
Dwight: So… Hey come on, don’t be sad, just… OK… just. She’s in a better place.
Angela: Alright.
Dwight: Actually the place that she’s in is the freezer, because of the odor.
Angela: [still sobbing]

Now, feel free to add ridiculous categories to my list or things I missed out on. Maybe next year this post won’t be so haphazard. I *might* even let other people vote, but don’t get to excited now.

  1. Let other people vote? Isn’t the point of having a blog to tell everyone else how to think?

    As for a ridiculous category to add: Best Strike Beard (Conan O’Brien)

  2. Oh! Second Best Strike Beard and Conan as winner! Good one, Scooter.
