Goofy-Sounding Awards Dinner Tonight

WHT_JohnPhillips.jpgSome big D.C. names are judging The Reed Awards to be announced tonight at the Washington Marriott.

The second annual Reed Awards, sponsored by Aristotle, announces the winners of such “special” awards as “Best Campaign Comeback”, “Best Villain Used in Political Media” and “Most Explosive Collaboration of the Year”. (It’s hard to believe anything with the word “special” in it is going to be favorable.)

Judges include The Daily Beast’s Mark McKinnon, Christine Pelosi (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) daughter, pollster Mark Penn, newsman Bill Schneider, C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, GMA’s George Stephanopoulos, NBC’s Chuck Todd, former NJ Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and “dozens of other political celebrities for the more than 70 achievement categories.”

With Aristotle as the lead sponsor, CEO John Phillips will definitely attend (and he may be in this outlandish hat considering the chill). It’s no sure thing that these well-known judges will attend, a spokeswoman told FishbowlDC. But yes, they’ve all participated in the judging.
