The 1999 Embie Awards

Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Imagine yourself at the Emmys, standing alongside the red carpet as the stars of your favorite shows promenade past you. Imagine the sequined dresses and the neatly-pressed tuxedos . . . the perfectly capped teeth and the perfectly coiffed heads. Now, imagine a rotten vegetable sailing out of the crowd in slow motion and splattering all over James Van Der Beek's forehead.

Thus, the spirit of the Embies.

The Network Executives have taken care of the nominating process. Now it's up to you Mighty Big TV users to dole out the Embies. You'll see a new Embie-related poll posted each weekday, asking you to choose the winner in each category. Vote early, vote often, start a betting pool if you like -- we'll post the final results right here when the Embies end.

Consider yourselves the Academy, folks. The viewers have spoken. Below, the winners...
