Recently I've been inspired by the wealth of awesomeness in our Pop Cultureosphere. Being a big believer in giving credit where and when credit is due, I'd like to hand out a few awards for achievement in awesomeness.
The Award for The Punk Musician that Most Emodies EVERYTHING That Punk's Founding Fathers Had in Mind: Avril Lavigne.
The Awesomey Award for Coolest Dude Possible: Jason Mraz
The Awesomey for Music Legend Who is Totally Still Pushing the Envelope, and REALLY Pissing off the Establish and Hasn't Lost her Edge Whatsoever: Madonna. -Who else would think to liken a Republican leader to Hitler? That is not vapid hyperbole. It's MegaGenius. Not to mention shocking. The only opinions that matter to me regarding American Politics are those of Khabbalists that live in England.
The Awesomey for Person who will Definitely be not Only Famous in 35 Years but a Business Titan as Well: That smiley blond poontang dude from the Hills. Total visionary.
(I'll forego the intros now and just get to the category and this year's Awesomey winner)
Three Chicks who I am Most Certain Have not had Lip-Injections: Melanie Griffith, Heidi Fleiss and Melissa Rivers.
Best Movie Actor: Nicholas Cage. -This win ends Josh Hartnett's impressive 4 year run in this category. You'll recall that Josh ended Matthew McConaghey's 9 year-run.

Currently Running Show That Never got Less Cool: Entourage

Reality Show Participant Who I've Grown to Respect and Admire as a Result of Seeing More of him: Hulk Hogan.
Actor Who Truly Resents Their Fame and Cares Only About the Craft of Acting: Lindsay Lohan. Better luck next year to: Hayden Panatierre, Josh Hartnett, Adrien Grenier, Wilmer Valderama, Jessica Simpson, Vivica A. Fox, Ashton Kutcher, Owen Wilson, Tara Reid, and Mischa Barton.
