The Oscars! The Golden Globes! The Spirit Awards! The HO Awards?

That's right, it's OUR time! Every year we sit through awards ceremony after awards ceremony, honoring the same 8 movies or TV shows that are deemed 'worthy' of the attention. What don't you find? Dinosaurs. Star Wars. Stunts. Superheroes. Movie lines. We love independent films just as much as we love blockbusters, therefore the time is long overdue to reflect on the BEST in ALL cinema and television this past year, not just what the elite deem approved for consumption. Not only do we share our personal picks, we share our listener picks for the Top TV Shows and Films of 2015!

This is not classy enough for the Oscars. We are not drunk enough for the Golden Globes. And we aren't smart enough for the Spirits.

THIS is the 5th Annual HO Awards! 

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
