The 2005 "Skinnies" Awards
Honoring epidermal excellence in entertainment ...
The entertainment world constantly changes, so why should 2005 be different? To accommodate the evolving face of the Industry, awards shows continue to add or adjust categories. The Oscars now honor animated films, the People's Choice awards consider best smile, hair, and even meanest movie villain. Who knows what the irreverent MTV movie awards will come up with next. Yet one thing has remained the same. None of these prestigious ceremonies address one of the more compelling concerns of our time: celebrity skin conditions. So, twist our arms, let us fill the gaping hole strangely ignored by the SAG awards, the Golden Globes, the Razzies, and even our esteemed colleague Mr. Blackwell. To paraphrase Al Pacino in "Godfather, Part III:" They keep pulling us back in. And with that, adjust your monitor, warm up your mouse, crank up your iPod to eleven: It's time for the 8th Annual Skinnies awards!
