TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Who needs prestige and industry respect
when you can have robots and excellent hair? TELETOON at Night's The Fannies is the ultimate awards season underdog, a show in which host Fred
Kennedy hands out trophies for things that are really important to
humanity - like man bums and swords. The third annual Fannies, taped in
front of a live audience for the first time in the show's history, will
air Friday, February 22 starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT during TELETOON at Night's Fred at Night programming block.
"What The Fannies lacks in glitz and glamour we make up for in mozza sticks and obscure
references to Greek mythology. No really, we actually make references
to Greek mythology. That's the type of high-brow humour our viewers
expect and once again we promise to deliver," said Fred Kennedy, Host, The Fannies on TELETOON at Night.
This year's categories and nominees are as follows:
Best Dramatic Performance by a Robot
Claptrap in Borderlands 2
David in Prometheus
Kristen Stewart in Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II
Best Use of Swords
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Best Man Bum
Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike)
Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike)
Channing Tatum (Magic Mike)
Best Use of Cleavage
The John Stamos Lifetime Achievement Award in the Category of Hair
Recipient to be revealed during the broadcast
As a nod to Seth McFarlane, the host of that other awards show, on February 22 the Fred at Night lineup will consist of alternating episodes of Family Guy and American Dad.
