Featuring standout entries from obsessive fans whose dedication to their craft is no less impressive than academy-award winning actors’ dedication to their roles—and certainly more impressive than James Franco’s dedication to not being a shitty host—the awards come in four categories:
MOST MUNDANE-SOUNDING STORY
LEAST-LIKELY TO HAVE FANFIC WRITTEN ABOUT IT(BUT DOES)
and everyone's favorite,
ABSOLUTELY CRAZIEST PREMISE
