brought in as special monitors despite the first nomination earlier:
9.1.20 Sid, nominated by Mike, Brritski, Sally…
Sid: If I were Meghan Markle, I wouldn't be driving through any Paris
underpasses for a while.
4.6.20 Nick Odell nominated by Steveski
On Georgette Heyer
Vicky: A Blunt Instrument is just wrong. Having the police constable do
it is out of order.
Nick O: Yes, but how did he do it? Was the blunt instrument a knee in
(Plus, on acceptance: Thank you Skeveski and Sid: the burning and
looting of all those American cities was not in vain.)
27.6.20 Brritski nominated by Sid
Brritski: You miss one opportunity and you get it in the neck...
Take the knee for the winner <FX: 1 minute silence with heads bowed>
A tie between Sid and Nick, well done both of you on your second awards
of the night.
Finally, the second annual Linda Tame Virtual Trophy for Mere Vulgarity.
This is entirely at the BTM's discretion, of course, so this year it has
been awarded to the whole of umra for the general level of vulgarity and
downright filth this year. This echoes the way in which the Nobel Peace
Prize is sometimes awarded to organisations and the George Cross was
awarded to Malta as a whole. (Not that those two awards come anywhere
close to the prestige of the Linda Tame Trophy, of course.) Well done
all umrats for your efforts that fully deserve this award.
And that ends the ceremony. Congratulations to all the winners. And also
thanks to all the individual producers of BT whether accidental or
cunningly crafted (who me ?), and to all those keen-eyed (or
dirty-minded) umrats who recognise these efforts and make the BT
nominations. This fine tradition of UMRA wouldn’t be possible without
you and so I’d like to note that the 3 most prolific Bad Taste posters
this year were Mike McT, Sid, Nick O and myself and the common
(de)nominators were Vicky and Sally tied in first place, closely
followed by Mr. McToodles and JPG. A fine effort, please take a bow. No,
not the one with the arrows please Mike.
Thanks again and a Happy and healthy 2021 to everyone.
