May I Have the Envelope, Please? 2008

It’s the most wonderful tiimmmmeee of the yeeeaarrrr…The 3rd Annual Marty Awards!

Unlike those other awards broadcasts, our show was never in any danger of being canceled thanks to some ingrate writers! Writers, pah! You think we pay our writers?!? AND we bring you all the awards that matter a week before our competition!

As always our show comes to you from the beautiful Raymond Chandler Pavilion. The carpet is being unfurled, the excitement is building! Who will win? Who will get snubbed? Who will show up so coked to the gills that they puke all over their Balenciaga gown in the ladies room?? Will any of the celebrity ladies NOT be pregnant?? There’s only one way to find out….

Our host this year is the much-awarded Mr. Jeremy Irons…we still think he’s hot, plus his voice will lend an air of legitimacy to the proceedings, don’t you agree? Let’s get on with it, Jeremy!
