I'd love to know your thoughts. Will anyone be watching?

  1. I'll probably watch, just out of curiosity, although it really sounds bizarre! How can they have an awards show when there really aren't that many of them? I envision it being like a high school yearbook- you know, "Cutest Host", "Most likely to open another restaurant in the next year", "Most likeable", etc.!

    1. How will they arrange it so that Emeril can give an award to Emeril? I guess just greenscreen him.

        Yeah, I'll probably watch, too. BTW, I think that "cake award" looks big, awkward and stupid.

      2. It seems very self-congratulatory to me.

        1. I have to give FN credit. Just when you think they couldn’t get any more inane they manage to surpass themselves. The red carpet is full of corporate mascots, Charlie the Tuna Toucan Sam, and The California Raisins. The awards are for things like best drink, food delivery and comfort food. Not to mention the same tired faces that are broadcast several times each and every day.

          1. i'll probably watch. the burger joint (burgermeister's) in my neighborhood is nominated. gotta root for the home team.
