OK it’s obviously pretty lame, I mean Bluebird gives themselves an award for Bluebird film of the year?   But here’s the real question I have.

What fucking genius over there said you know what porn doesn’t have enough of?  Awards.

Seriously  we now give out more awards than there are movies released every year.
