Siskoid Awards 2007 - Technical Achievement Ceremony

You know the one. They get a pretty actress to hand out prizes to celluloid chemists and lense manufacturers and then they tell you about it real quick during the "actual" awards (which nonetheless spend time on documentary shorts). Yeah, so this is that bit of the Siskoid Awards. Who's available to host? Carey Mulligan?!

It's already better than the Oscars.

Best black and white reprint anthology of 2007 - Tough one, but the prize goes to the best damn high concept in the lot, Showcase Presents The War That Time Forgot: WWII soldiers vs. dinosaurs.

Best movie trailer moment of 2007 - Iron Man. Tony Stark builds his original armor in Osama Bin Laden's cave! While drunk.

Best DVD packaging of 2007 - Blade Runner 25th Anniversary Edition. I don't know about you, but I'm bringing that briefcase to work every day.

Best arty B-movie of 2007 - Death Proof. While 28 Days Later once won this award, 28 Weeks Later didn't quite measure up. Tarantino's Death Proof manages to compare/contrast exploitation flicks in the 70s and 00s AND feature a disturbing spinning wheel to face moment.

Stupidest politically correct move of 2007 - Bookstores banning Tintin au Congo from their shelves as racist. You know, someone should really mention that Asterix is demeaning to Italians.
Very close runner-up: So You Think You Can Dance appologizing to the U.S. Military for dancing a peace message.

Best fight move of 2007 - Jason Bourne beating a guy up with a rolled-up magazine.

Character find of 2007 - Martha Jones. I am astonished at how quickly I forgot all about Rose Tyler.

Worst character find of 2007 - The Mexicans on Heroes. First they run, then they cross a border, then they run, then they cross a border, then they run... Cutting their time short is the one good thing to come out of the writer's strike.

Best fake awards show host of 2007 (these are always pre-taped) - Carey Mulligan, who else?

This is just a transparent excuse to post pictures of Carey Mulligan, isn't it?

Keep it up.

I, sir, am a piece of glass.

Martha was great. It's a terrible shame she's gone.

I still thought about Rose while thinking about Martha - but that is best left for a Showtime After Dark special...

Martha'll be back in both Torchwood and Who, don't worry.

As for your Rose fix, try to check out Secret Diary of a Call Girl. "Showtime" indeed!
