The Tubeys

Forget the TCA awards. Take the Emmys and stuff them in your hat. It’s time for the real television awards, the ones everyone’s clamoring to win: the 2005-2006 Tubeys (official slogan: Relatively Few Awards for Two and a Half Men.) These are the awards given out by the readers of televisionwithoutpity.com, so you know they’re the best and most prestigious in the industry.

Today and tomorrow is when the “vetting” process take place. Each of the 53 categories has a raft of nominations, and in these two days members get to whittle that number down to 10 official nominees for each. Then the actual voting starts Saturday and is open for five days. The results will be announced sometime next week.

With such exciting categories as “Most Overlooked Show”, “Worst Stunt Casting”, “Biggest WTF Moment”, “Worst ’Improved’ Show”, and “Best Performance by an Inanimate Object”, the Tubeys are always a crowd pleaser. And better yet they get at the intricate little details that we, the TV obsessives, really care about. At the Tubeys, the awarding of “Best Show” is almost an afterthought, pushed aside for “Most Ludicrous Plotline”. And that’s the way it should be.

So head over to the official TWoP boards, sign up if you haven’t yet, and place your votes. Your opinion really can make the difference!
