The 2003-2004 Tubey Awards, Part Five

by The TWoP Staff August 13, 2004
The 2003-2004 Tubey Awards, Part Five If you're appearing on 7th Heaven and you're actually somewhat talented and/or respected in certain circles, then something is very wrong. Nominees for the award include Meredith Baxter-Birney, Richard Lewis, Bryan Callen, Debi Mazar, and the Sudanese Lost Boys, who probably don't even have an agent and appeared on this show with the very best of intentions, but still should have known better. The winner, once again, is Eileen Brennan, because if you're an Oscar-nominee and an Emmy-winner, this show does not deserve you. -- Sara M

Best Argument Against Adoption
For the first time ever, 7th Heaven's Ruthie Camden does not win this award. Instead it goes to Jeffrey, the child RevCam twisted Chandler's arm into adopting. Jeffrey's one shining moment (when he turned a hose on half the Camden family) was quickly outweighed by his constant and annoying complaints about being hungry and his overly-full head of "adorable" moppet hair. But when he made Chandler dump out the extremely expensive cognac his dad gave him when he died, Jeffrey's win of this award was guaranteed. -- Sara M

Stupidest Way to Get Fired
It's close race, what with George Eads "oversleeping" and Jorja Fox not mailing a letter in time, but Jeremy London wins for "vandalizing" his girlfriend's cell phone. Congratulations, Jeremy! No, seriously -- congratulations. -- Sara M

The "You'll Have a Great Career, But Not On This Show" Award
To Sam Jones III, who tried to make a go of it on Smallville but was never given enough to do on three seasons of the show as Pete Ross. Even when Clark Kent's secret was revealed to him, opening up the possibilities for their friendship's dramatic pitfalls becoming show fodder, Pete was still relegated to "background black buddy" status, and all of the angst that holding such a deep secret must carry was barely addressed until Pete's final episode. And that didn't save him from the ludicrous episode where he was suddenly a drag-racing enthusiast. As Sam showed in the unseen gem Zig-Zag, he can act. Just not on this show. For Sam Jones III, the Pete-centric episodes were just 2Little, 2Late. -- Omar G

The Holding the Show Together With Both Arms, Strained Muscles and (Until Recently) Great Hair Award
Is given to ace actor John Glover for his scaly portrayal of Lionel Luthor, a character who has grown and deepened over three seasons unlike, oh, say, every other character in the Smallville universe. On the show, his character still maintains highly bastardous and simply magnificent traits while staring down the barrel of a prison sentence, and a death sentence in the form of terminal cancer. The day Glover leaves the show is the day many fans who've held on through too many thin episodes will jump ship forever. -- Omar G
