The Clios: John Michael Higgins Bombed Like Saddam

I have to give credit to host John Michael Higgins–he of Best in Show, DirecTV commercial fame–for trying (jeezus, what a stuffy room), but after a steak and potatoes dinner and ears/eyes open wide, the guy connected like Tyson on Buster Douglas. I truly feel sorry for the talented bloke; not sure if Bruce Vilanch wrote his jokes, but holy christ, I’ve seen a worse reception for Jesus in a Mel Gibson movie (*is this thing on?).

Anyhoo, TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris was a big winner, picking up a Clio Gold for “The Trillion Dollar Billboard” for The Zimbabwean Newspaper. See you at the interactive awards tonight! Full list after the jump..
