Most Imaginative Use of a Cardboard Box
— The Drew Carey Show‘s cheeky take on The Full Monty
The Baby? What Baby? Award
— To Melrose Place, for cleverly disguising (and brazenly ignoring) Heather Locklear’s pregnancy. Hunter Tylo who?
Best New TV Theme
— The Refreshments’ King of the Hill instrumental (with Nerf Herder’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer jam a close second)
Best Use of Nudity
— NewsRadio‘s Andy Dick stripping to his Skivvies on The Rosie O’Donnell Show
Worst Use of Nudity
— The gratuitous overexposure of Jimmy Smits and Kim Delaney that seems to end every episode of NYPD Blue
Most Gracious Loser
— David Letterman, for his Times Square ”#3 in Late Night!” billboard — right down the block from Jay Leno’s ”#1 in Late Night!” sign
Least Gracious Winner
— The X-Files‘ Gillian Anderson, for not mentioning costar David Duchovny in her Golden Globe or her Emmy acceptance speeches
Best Guest Spot
— Emma Thompson on Ellen. We knew all along that accent was fake.
Worst Guest Spot
— Homicide‘s Detective Munch (Richard Belzer) traveled needlessly from NBC to Fox’s The X-Files to interrogate a Lone Gunman.
Most To-Die-For TV Character
— Angel (David Boreanaz), Buffy’s vampire boyfriend
— South Park‘s delightfully subversive ”Oh, my God, they killed Kenny! You bastards!”
