Let’s Just Call it the Whedonverse Streamy Awards

The first annual Streamy (not steamy Joss) was a star-studded event with a level of professionalism not seen for web series in the past. Whedon fans who have been following the success of Dr. Horrible won’t be surprised that it seems that main stream is starting to understand the value and importance of the web industry. To hear more of my thoughts about that check out the post I did on Social Media World.

Whedon fans will be happy to know not only did Felicia Day, Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Neil Patrick Harris and Jane Espenson make off with awards, they also hit a huge nerve with the rest of their peers. My favorite was Blake Calhoun, who won best directing for a dramatic series for his show Pink, who said in his acceptance speech, “thank goodness The Guild or Dr. Horrible wasn’t in this category.” And John Stern, who accepted best guest star for Paul Rudd called the Streamys, “the first Dr. Horrible Awards.”

So what did our Whedonverse Alumns (and Joss) win?

Jossverse Actress Comes to the Dollhouse

Felicia Day is coming to “Dollhouse.”  Okay everyone, settle down.  The former potential slayer Vi and Dr. Horrible love interest Penny, will be a guest star in an upcoming episode of “Dollhouse,” and will be playing a different role than she has played before.  Unfortunately she cannot give us too much information until the air date gets closer.  Day also states that she is a ‘nerdette’ (one of my new favorite words) as well as a Joss Fangirl, but she doesn’t want to tell him because it would be awkward at parties.  She also talks about Twitter and “The Guild” so it is definitely worth a read.  I have posted the link to her blog below.

What are the Streamy Awards? They are not for who fogs up the mirror the most, but rather a kind of Oscars for Web Television. Accord to the Streamy Awards website it’s hosted by “a consortium of leading new media companies — Tilzy.TV, Tubefilter, and NewTeeVee — to recognize outstanding achievement for shows produced originally for broadband distribution.”

Given the great production, writing and acting values of the Guild they sure do deserve at least your nomination – if not an award as well.

Felicia and the Guild have asked for your help in getting them nominated. For that entry please visit the Guild’s website.
