The Bob Award winners!

21 Feb

It’s here. The biggest, most important movie awards ceremony on the planet that is named after a person whose name is a palindrome (Take THAT, Pip Awards!). There are no trophies, there is no red carpet, but there are gift certificates to Red Mill Burgers in Seattle at stake (recognized by GQ for having officially the Best Onion Rings in America). So please, allow me to save you three and a half hours that will ultimately lead up to an envelope kerfuffle. Here are the winners of the Bob Awards for the films of 2017. Enjoy!
