  1. Ready the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The MTV “Fandom Awards” Are Coming to San Diego Comic-Con

    Via Hero Complex: "MTV is heading to Comic-Con International in a big way, with a new awards show designed to honor fan favorite programming. Set for July 24, the mtvU Fandom Awards will pay tribute to the best offerings in genre film and television from the past year, with musical act Linkin Park headlining the ceremony at San Diego’s Petco Park. The awards will also celebrate fans themselves and will take place as part of a larger fete — the MTV Fan Fest, a free party at the stadium open to all Comic-Con badge holders." The notion of an event like this, combined with the general insanity of San Diego Comic-Con, makes me feel like breaking out in hives, and I'm not even going to San Diego Comic-Con. Jill is, though. Everyone pray for her. Previously in

  2. Orphan Black Fan Starts Crowdfunding Campaign For Tatiana Maslany Award

    Fans Do Cool Things

    Because Tatiana Maslany is an amazing actress and did not win an Emmy or Golden Globe for her depiction of EIGHT FREAKING CLONES on BBC America's Orphan Black, one fan has decided to do something about it. Sarah Evans sent me a link to the Indiegogo campaign she started to get the actress her own special award - a Clone Club Award! "I want Maslany to have an award specifically from her fans," she writes. "I am commissioning an artist to create a unique awards statue specifically for the fans of Orphan Black to give to her." Evans is looking to raise just $2,000, which I think is an easily attainable goal for the series' many dedicated fans. There will be one actual award statue for Maslany and up to three replicas for fans willing to shell out $500. Evans is also asking fans not directly send the actress info about the award, she'd like to surprise her with it. Check out more details and perks at the Indiegogo page.

  7. “Who are you wearing?”

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    It's awards season, so in those moments where you can't believe the tv guide said the broadcast started at seven and that meant an hour of actors being interviewed about their roles and actresses being interviewed about their dresses before you actually stand a chance of finding out who won best Hair and Makeup (it's The Hobbit, seriously, thirteen dwarves), just repeat Madéleine Flores' comic to yourself. You can see more of her stuff here, and even buy it here. Yes, even her take on dressing for your body type. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
