The 2017 Whiffie Awards Show Chat
« on: January 18, 2017, 11:32:19 pm »
Hi all,

Just to let you know that this years award show will be a little later than planned.

As you know I always try to get this all done and dusted with the results out on the Oscar awards weekend, but I have a number of things happening in my professional and private life at the moment and finding the time to compile all the information, set the polls and produce the show is not high on my list right now.

Don`t get me wrong, the show will happen.

But I`ll be looking to do this all after March so we are looking at a Spring/Summer Awards.

Again apologies.

Regards,

tc

We are all very grateful that you (and the academy) manage to do this at all!  Thank you!!  It will happen when it happens and we will contain our mounting excitement until the great day.

Will the airship aerobatic team be providing entertainment  at the ceremony once again, or are you planning something involving ornithopters?  If you can engage the services of a "Spackman International  Products"  development,  the "Wing Walking Half Marathon" would also be interesting.

Only possible if there's enough red carpet to cover the WHOLE wing. The Academy has certain standards to maintain after all.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Np TC, the Academy set the precedent to not always do it on Oscars night a few years ago.

I am looking forward to being a bit more active with the voting this year so take your time.

There is a real world?   :unsure:

zenrat industries is pleased to announce we have been awarded the catering contract for the ceremony and would like to reassure potential attendees that the bargain price raw prawns we have obtained will be fine in the esky until at least May as long as we remember to keep swapping out the ice packs.  Use by dates are just guidelines, right?

Ah. So it's Zenrat Industries who are really behind the return of Vegemite to Australia ?  ;D

Might I suggest each category has a different coloured envelope  :rolleyes: ? Either that or get Faye to wear her glasses  :angel:

I work with a 21 year old child.  I had to explain to her today who Faye and Warren are.
Do they teach them nothing these days?

I've a soft spot for Faye if only because Bonny and Clyde was the first "X" rated film I legally went to the cinema to see on my 16th birthday  ;D

I think it's rated PG now but back then we only had U, A,X and H (never really figured why the X & H differentiation was needed ?)

Hi fellow whiffers,

Negotiations with PwC have now been completed and we are confident what the 2017 Awards will be a non FUBAR event.

The Academy is now sifting it`s way through all the data and will over the next few weeks compile and ready the voting process.

Jack Daniels, (this years unofficial sponsor), have supplied the necessary crates of bourbon while the task of compiling everything takes  place so what could possibly go wrong......  :wacko: 

Watch this space.

Can you confirm or deny rumours relating to contacts between Narses2 and Putin?
