The 4th Annual Whopper Awards - Nominations Part I

Welcome to the 4th Annual Whopper Awards for 2009 where the best and... well the best achievers of the entertainment industry get the accolades they so richly deserve. You've all seen the travesty of the big Awards ceremonies where trash like Milk, The Reader, Slumdog Millionaire and Benjamin Button were showered with awards. Well you won't find any of those movies get awards here because 1. They're only coming out in this part of the world now and have passed the 2008 deadline for inclusion in the 4th Whoppers and 2. They all sound like utter boring shite and probably wouldn't be considered here anyway. The only proper movie the big Awards ceremonies nodded to was the Dark Knight probably only because they couldn't very well ignore the movie making $1Bn as of time of writing.

@ Civvy: It's like you're saying that The Whopper Awards are less important than the end of every life on Earth! Shame on you.

@ Bruce: Seriously. It's brilliant. I'm even singing it now.

@ Vaughan: Can you think of any better way?

Of course not, My dear Colonel, I would never say the Whoppers where less important than every life on Earth, just less important than mine. ;)
