SDCC and Lionsgate Planning New Comic Con Awards Show

Now geek culture will have another meaningless ceremony to pat itself on the back.

According to the latest rumors, San Diego Comic Con is thinking about teaming up with Lionsgate to create a Comic Con awards show that would honor achievements in geek culture. There's no info on what the awards would be called or what the categories would be, but we'd like to be first on the record in calling the awards a total sham and pointing out that the committee in charge of picking the nominees, if such a committee will exist, did a terrible job in choosing them. For instance, why wasn't The Outhouse nominated in the journalism category, if there is in fact a journalism category? This is an outrage, and we won't stand for it.

Unless, of course, The Outhouse is nominated for something. In that case, these awards are a breath of fresh air and we're glad someone is finally taking this seriously.

Either way, you heard it here first.
