Golden Clog Nominees Announced

2008_02_clog.jpg

Michael Ruhlman and Tony Bourdain have announced nominees for The Golden Clog Awards–food writers aren’t forgotten, and bad food writers especially.

THE DOUCHEBAG
For the best example of twisted, repressed, or compromised “I’d rather be making lemon bundt cake with My Cat, Mr. Mufflesworth” journalist who actually HATES food and hates the people who make food even more

Nominees:
Alan Richman for taking a big Dump on New Orleans at the worst possible time. And for his totally disingenuous piece on celebrity chefs not being behind the stove when Alan chooses to dine;

John Mariani for continuing to be John Mariani and do what he does so well. Which is–apparently–get free stuff;

Bob Lape–”Do I have to pay for that?”:

Regina Schrambling for her deranged, embittered–yet fascinating–gastropoda.com, where she raves and rags on her former employers–(and Mario Batali) like an ex-lover-turned-bag lady.

Artist/filmmaker Melinda Hunt adds to the Theresa Duncan/Jeremy Blake saga and challenges Frank Morales’ version.

Anjelica Huston to play Benazir Bhutto in biopic?

When Manuel Mollinedo ran the LA Zoo, animals managed to escape a number of times. Maybe he’s a PETA mole? Or just an incompetent bureaucrat?

Bonnie Fuller picks scandalicious celebs, but her readers like Lana Turner and Liz Taylor better. Maybe Britney can get one of the kids to stab someone.

Sean Penn is available, which means so is Robin, which means fans of The Princess Bride can rekindle their hopes.

Tony Bourdain is Eater of the Year, followed by the cleverly-named Joel Chestnut. Padme Lakshmi, a chesty nut, is third.

Jodie Foster wins the IMDB least screwed-up former child star poll.

AFI needs to stop with the lame-ass lists already.
