Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as Kathy regaled the crowd with tales from last night's Streamy Awards at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Billed by the event organizers -- The International Academy of Web Television -- as "the first and most prestigious awards ceremony devoted to honoring excellence in original web television programming," the event apparently sent most of the audience streaming towards the nearest exit. Said the Hollywood Reporter, "technical difficulties plagued (the event) ... which is somewhat fitting for a ceremony that honors web series." Tech Tremor was more blunt: "The Streamy Awards sucked (up a lot of time)." The big winner of the evening was Zach Galifianakis whose "Between Two Ferns" took top honors in the Comedy and Acting categories ... but most folks would have gladly traded-in the Ferns for a couple of Fig Leaves. Midway through the ceremony, two insiders (pictured above) stripped off their clothing and streaked back and forth across the stage. Poor Kathy. I'm sure by that point she was about ready to say, "The Envelope Please" ... if only for something to vomit in!

Sounds as if Kathy may have needed something larger then an envelope.

Yeah we're (TechTremor) hoping for a little bit more class next year. As I'm always down for some good fun, comes a point were things get drastically out of hand. This was unfortunately one of them.

Thanks for the link Marty! Cheers.
