Food Network Awards - I Somehow Managed to Sit Through The Whole Thing

Ladies and Gents [2], were you as disappointed in the Food Network Awards [2] as I was? For having all those big personalities, it was pretty darn dull, don't you think? This picture of Paula [3] pretty much says it all. I had it on in the background, otherwise I don't know if I could have sat through the whole thing. Although, I must say, as much as I was dulled-to-death by it, I was not nearly as irritated as our pal Anthony Bourdain [4].



The production itself--above and beyond the witless, ill-considered, just-plain stupid "concept" of an Awards show where most of the "awards" went to inanimate objects (accepting the award for Best Comfort Food is...Macaroni and Cheese!!), appliances or cities (Portland's mayor wisely did not bother to show),--the production values--were lower than whale shit. The food styling during the "Best New Appliance" looked like some kind of 1960's themed monkey effluence, dying, soggy, butt-ugly.

And yes, I know, Bourdain's "I totally hate on Food TV" schtick is a little off-putting and old-hat to some, however I still love every scathing word of it.

Did you watch it? What did you think? Tell me about it in the comments! Oh and did anyone else notice that they used the same music that Top Model [5] uses??

And finally, if you want to know who won the metal cake statuettes (even though most of the recipients are inanimate objects), or see more red carpet images

Here are the winners, visit Food Network for a full list of nominees [6]

And that folks, was honestly a waste of my time... I wonder what they'll do differently next year, because you know there's going to be a next year...
