After this year’s Oscar broadcast (which I didn’t watch, but got the gist of from which jokes would trend on Twitter), I have come to the realization that nobody ever seems to reward the things that *I* find most entertaining: ‘Best Goofy Accent’, ‘Best Attempt To Approximate A Comic Book Costume In Basketball Skin’, ‘Best Use Of Gwyneth Paltrow In A Way That Makes Her Palatable.’  Indeed, the one thing that becomes clear after any and all awards shows is the fact that awards shows are inherently subjective, and that one man’s ‘Best Actor’ is the next man’s Matthew McConaughy.  Still, it makes me wonder what you, the Faithful Spoilerites, might consider worthy of shiny statues, which begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks a little bronze Orem with an exasperated eye-roll and a graduation cap would be interesting, asking: If you were in charge, who/what would you want to recognize with an award?

Matthew Peterson

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    A Razzie award to the countless screenwriters who butchered various classic SF novels while making their movie. “I, Robot”, “Star Ship Troopers” and “I am Legend” come to mind.

      I couldn’t agree more. Although I do technically like Starship Troopers as a movie (and I only mean the first one, not the sequels), I absolutely hate it as an adaptation of the source material.
