Siskoid Awards 2009 - Technical Achievement Ceremony

The tradition continues on from previous Siskoid Awards, and of course, from the Oscars themselves! The Technical Achievement Ceremony is a thinly veiled excuse to have a pretty girl hosted an awards show for the stuff I didn't fit in last Friday. At the Oscars, these would be for, you know, creating plane-through-earthquake software. Here, anything goes.

Your host, straight from the set of the canceled and then revived Primeval, is the luscious Lucy Brown. Take it away, Lucy! (Along with my heart.)




Character find of 2009 - Hans Landa. If Inglourious Basterds did anything right (and it did a lot of things right), it's birthing this character. Steals the show!

Best revamp of 2009 - Hank Pym. From discredited wife beater parading in the worst possible costumes to the Universe's Scientist Supreme. His book is the only Avengers book I read. I still refuse to call him the new Wasp however.





Best direct-to-internet musical superhero movie with a musical commentary track possibly better than the film itself - Dr. Horrible

Best Toy to land on my shelf this year - Any monster from the Classic Doctor Who lines of toys, but if I choose only one, it has to be the Sea Devil.






Most awaited RPG product - Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG. Most awaited in the sense that I'm still waiting for it (but at least it has SHIPPED!!!).

Smoothest come-back of 2009 - Outpost Gallifrey. Though the biggest Doctor Who forum in history shut down this summer, it was quickly replaced by a variety of communities, the most Outpost-esque being Gallifrey Base (and a shout-out to the art-only community over at Braxiatel.com).



Most absurd thing I got into this year - Cake Boss

Best move in martial arts - The Axe of Thor. Of all the Kung Fu movies I watched this year, this non-sequitur from Born to Fight as called by the little girl filled with blood lust has got to be my favorite. All I can find on You-Tube is the French version, but start watching a 2:30 for about a minute. AXE OF THOR!!!

Siskoid, I agree with you about Hans Landa and Hank Pym. Landa is the protagonist of the bastard. The only characters are only secondaries or simply cliches.

Pym has at last get some attention and self-estime. I also greatly enjoy Mighty Avengers and the Initiative. Why doesn't anybody remembers the Initiative?

Personaly, my more awaited RPG product is the A Song of ICe and Fire Campaign Guide.
