Hey everybody, welcome to the 2008 Darkies. I'm your host, Willis. It’s great to see everyone out there. Who’s here tonight? Oh wow look everybody, it’s the admin. Hey bro, your suit looks tragic. Luckily your date’s dress is really fancy. Man, I’m glad so many people were able to make it out here. Gigi and Dear Dairy, nominated for best pairing. They were going to be here, but it was the same day as bingo night. We invited newfoundlandtim and dragongirl too, but they mysteriously didn’t show up. There are so many nominees here. Some of the awards are impossible to predict. There’s BSam, nominated for several awards. Before the show I asked him what he thought his chances for winning something was and he said 'who?' Wow, I’m just still impressed about how many people showed up. Some even brought dates. Wasabi arrived with Sora, but it appears he’s sitting next to Kyle now. Look theres shruti, and she brought herself as a date. One of the most exciting awards of the night is best moment. So many good moments are nominated. It’s a shame that my birthday got looked over.
Now that my terrible stand up is over, it's time for the awards to be presented. Celebrities from 667's history will be presenting them throughout the day. Thanks to everybody who voted, your choices will finally be revealed. Get ready for the 2008 Darkies.

Hey guys - I'm here to present the award for Best Moderator
The moderators are the cogs in 667’s administrative machinery – essential, hard-working, and often complained about. Yet though we may rant and rave about certain mods, there are many worth appreciation, who do their jobs with dedication and don’t look for any appreciation or glory. In the spirit of giving these invaluable people their due respect, the nominees areall well-recognized and well-respected. There was, however, one among their number who was the most looked-up-to, the keenest of them all – the victor. The nominees are
It's vaguely unsurprising that there are literate people on a message board about a book series. Tokens of this literacy are evident in some of the most popular boards, Fearsome Fiction and Chaotic Creativity, where people can--and do--write stories about anything, from Harry Potter to 667 members, Kwanzaa or a godless killing machine's trip to Washington. It's my honor to present an award for Best Story, which goes to...
The nominees (which are all good reads) are:
The Shed 667 Dark Tournament Supers Mr Bear Goes To Washington Kwanzaa Kraze The Bloody Pen

Congratulations to my friend Gigi!
Congrats also to Willis for Best Story!
Cyber, those banners are fantastic.
Wish I'd thought of it sooner -- We could've had a red-carpet arrival thread for a few days before the awards presentation, interviewing 667 celebs and showing off our glamorous evening clothes. I'll have to remember this idea for next year's Darkies.

Hey everyone! *waves* So, I'm here presenting 667's Most Unfortunate Member award. Let's get this thing rolling, shall we? Ehem. *clears throat*

And so, in honour of all this alluring calamity, we present to you 667’s Most Unfortunate Member. Following the typical process of nominations, where the superlatively miserable, were nominated, the voice of the people decided who, in the end, would away with this most emo of titles. The nominees for most unfortunate are Dante Antenora Sixteen Gigi quagmire44
And the Darkie goes to… *dramatic drumroll*
Congrats Dante!!! Of all 667ers, you are the most dedicated to the works of Lemony Snicket.

Violent Bun Fortuna: As a fan of the 101 Dalmations books as well as the original films (animated and live action) I really dislike Cruella, it's just totally out of keeping with that series & that character. And I love so many Disney films so that's not the problem

urbanletteropener: "bear" — you make a fair point. At this point it honestly wouldn't surprise me if Disney as a company was physically incapable of inventing new intellectual property.

GlitteryMisery: As a fan of the Chronicles of Prydain who was disappointed by Disney's previous attempt at adapting them, I'm still waiting for news on the new supposedly truer-to-the-text version they're planning.

GlitteryMisery: Disney isn't my first choice of company to film the books, but it's better than nothing.
