The 2013 Academy Awards were handed out last February, and so were the Grammys. The Pulitzer Prizes came in April, the Tonys in June, the Nobel Prizes in October and the County Music Awards were earlier this month.
Which means the people of the world are holding their collective breath, chewing their fingernails, waiting impatiently for the final big awards of the year.
You readers help me, of course, and for that I am deeply indebted. I’m seeking your help once again in the nominating process. Click on the links above to get thinking in the right mindset.
One of the great and unique things about the Dano Awards is that you can tailor the category to the act stupidity.
Just for example, you could nominated Roanoke County Supervisor Butch Church for the “Job Seeker of the Year Award,” for the act of applying for the Roanoke County public information officer. Or perhaps you might want to title it the Dano Award in the “Keep Me Off the Dole, Please” category.
No other awards allow you to make the category fit the action, which is why the Danos are so beloved and superior.
So let’s have it, readers: In the comments, post your nominations, in categories that give it your stinging best! Keep them to Virginia, the more local, the better.
The column will run in a month or so — so don’t delay!
