The 2006 Geiger Awards, Day 2

Best Comedy Character: Barney, How I Met Your Mother. Eminently quotable and dripping with awesome.

Best Drama Character: Hiro, Heroes. If you hate Hiro, you must also hate kittens, rainbows, and Christmas.

Best Sidekick/Hero Support: Ando, Heroes. Not only is he a good, snarky foil to Hiro, but one gets the impression that without Ando, Hiro would probably have died in some stupid way, like preparing his own fugu, long ago.

Most Deserving of a Spinoff: Kenneth the Page, 30 Rock. In five years, we'll all be watching his show or dead by his hand.

Character We Most Want to Kick in the Teeth: Kirk, Gilmore Girls. The last time Kirk was funny was when he made that short film. That was four years ago. Shut up, Kirk.

Best Heterosexual Life Partners: J.D. and Turk, Scrubs. It's guy love, between two guys.

Who Knew?: Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock. Did you have any idea, in January of this year, that Alec Baldwin would be picking up a sitcom every week and walking off with it? Put your hand down, Tina Fey, you don't count.

Foxiest Silver Fox: Tim Gunn, Project Runway. Yeah, we're in the Tim Gunn Caucus.

Best Reality Contestant: Daniel V., Project Runway. Smart, friendly, funny, talented, and he gave us those immortal words, "It's a motherfucking walk-off."

Worst Reality Contestant: Jade, America's Next Top Model. The undiscovered supermodel for a reason. Girl is crazy, and not even the awesome Janice Dickinson kind of crazy.

Person We Most Love to Hate: Santino, Project Runway. The sort of reality villain you can actually feel good about hating, because he doesn't seem to be in desperate need of a psychiatrist. He's just loud and cocky. But tremendously entertaining as well, as his eerily perfect Tim Gunn impression and subsequent Red Lobster Saga demonstrate.

Best Death: Jack Bristow, Alias. We always knew that if Jack was going down, he was going to take someone with him. He didn't disappoint.

Ditto, ditto, and ditto, except for the Top Model part only cause I dont watch so have no idea what you are talking about. Plus not sure if I like Daniel post Project Runway now, especially after what our beloved Tim Gunn had to say about the new Daniel, but whatev.

Ando is GREAT and underloved and Go jack bristow. Im not sure I like the rise of Kenneth the Page only because I foresee a duel in 5 years and me losing because he's a comic genius.

True, but the combination of Daniel and Santino totally MADE that season of Project Runway. So they deserve props for that.

Speaking of Kenneth the Page/future serial killer, I was watching an Arrested Development rerun the other day, and the actor who plays Kenneth was playing a waiter at the country club! Awesomeness.

Jack Bristow should also win for Best Badass. I want him to be my daddy.
