The Awards?

tv_com_awards_470.jpgI received an email this morning from a friend who said:  "Jill, OMG, you have to click on this link and vote for my show!" 

"Vote for what?", I said. 

"The Best Of 2009 Awards!  My show was nominated!" 

Are you fucking kidding me?  The Best of 2009 Awards?  What?  What I mean say is... huh?  The fuck? 

I was wondering why everyone here at Manka Bros. is running around so excited.  I thought it was because it is Friday - but no, IT'S BECAUSE THE BEST OF 2009 TV.COM NOMINATIONS ARE OUT(And this is not to be confused with the 2009 Awards which were announced a month or so ago - I think.) 

I am soooo nervous.  Will "30 Rock" finally break out and beat "The Big Bang Theory" for their first ever Best of 2009 Award?  Will "The Big Bang Theory" finally emerge from its "Two and a Half Men" shadow and beat "30 Rock" to win their first ever Best of 2009 Award

Actually, everyone who wins will win their very first Best Of 2009 Award.  Because this is the first year of the Best of 2009 Awards

entertainment_awards.jpgSeriously, this town has got to stop giving out meaningless awards.  I know we thrive on it and need these awards desperately to boost our egos (even more) but enough is enough.  As a multi-year winner of the BLOGGY for Best General Media Blog, I know how it feels to have your name called.  But we really need to stop it. 

Woody Allen said it best in "Annie Hall":  "What's with all these awards? They're always giving out awards.  Best Fascist Dictator: Adolf Hitler."

And I have certain questions for the people at (owned by CBS).  Have they only nominated shows from companies that have agreed to license their content to  Are any shows nominated that can only be found on competitor site, for instance?  It makes you question the legitimacy of The Best of 2009 Awards.

However, the lawyers and executives at CBS don't have to worry.  I'm not going to poke around too much, because I really don't care.  I just wanted you all to know that, if I had to, I could blow the lid off this scandal and bring down The Best of 2009 Awards!

Everybody complains about awards and act like they don't care about them - but everyone wants one and everyone shows up at these things.

About Medea

Medea Medea was a real bitch from classical mythology - as most famously dramatized by Euripides.

She was a sorceress and wife of Jason, whom she assisted in obtaining the Golden Fleece. When Jason deserted her, she chopped up their children. One could say, Medea acted as rationally as a major media company.
