We used to give away annual awards. That was fun. Here are some of those.
The North American* Genius Monkey Comedy Award is given to a comedy writer/performer who is on his or her way up. It would be impossible -- or at least incredibly short-sighted -- to try and come up with the "funniest" comedian every year. (Besides, we'd have to just call it the Louis C.K. Award and be done with it.
Tonight, the music industry descended on Los Angeles to hand out Grammy Awards to some of the most popular music acts of the last year. But we know what you all look forward to every Grammy weekend -- who ShowbizMonkeys.com thinks put out the best albums and songs of 2010! You won't find Bieber, Eminem, or GaGa on our lists.
Last night may have been Emmy night in Hollywood, but we all know the internet was clamouring for the real winners of the past season in television: The Crafty Monkey Television & TV Achievement Awards! As the last awards to make their official debut on ShowbizMonkeys.com (after the Melodic Monkeys and Read More Comments (1)
Tonight the film world came together to celebrate the best in motion pictures with the 82nd Academy Awards. We love the Oscars here at ShowbizMonkeys.com -- the movie stars, the spectacle, the whole thing -- but we also like picking our own favourites in movies. Since this site began under our old name in 2001, we've been choosing our own top movies of the year.
The North American* Genius Monkey Comedy Award is given to a comedy writer/performer who is on his or her way up. Because comedy is not at all objective (despite how much we wish it was), ShowbizMonkeys.com figured that coming up with the absolute funniest comedian each year would be an impossible task.
Tonight, the music world celebrated the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, which we covered on our site. But as we did last year, we're pairing up our annual awards for the best in music along with the industry's awards. Last year, we just gave you a list of our favourite albums, but from this year onward, we're breaking things down into categories, complete with our nominees and winners, much like the awards shows themselves.
Deciding on only ten favorite films over the course of ten years is an arduous task. While my selection criteria relied on a variety of factors, in the end, my ultimate guide was personal preference. Undoubtedly, many will feel certain films were unfairly left out, but there truly is no objective way to make a list of this nature. Please feel free to comment and share your opinions regarding the best films of the decade.
Aren't you excited? A totally trivial list of the top 3 shows/hosts in 5 different categories, picking from a genre of no more than a dozen total shows. So while 2009 was the year that talk shows seemed to dominate the airwaves (Really? 3.5 hours of talk every night on NBC? Really!?), it's still a pretty limited game, especially in late night.
Last night was the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards -- hosted by the hilarious and talented Neil Patrick Harris -- and of course there's coverage of that show and its winners here on our site. But just like we did earlier this year right around when the Grammys and Oscars were handed out, we're using this opportunity to give you ShowbizMonkeys.
It's Oscar time again! The 81st Annual Academy Awards are taking place this weekend -- and ShowbizMonkeys.com is in Los Angeles covering the event. We'll have some great video coverage from our time on the Red Carpet this year, but this post isn't about the Academy Awards. It's about OUR awards -- our own picks for the best movies of the year.
