Dec 19, 2014

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Tis the season for end of the year awards. And in this year where geek fare is all over the entertainment landscape, it seems like a great year to hand out the Geekend's 1st Annual Geekies.

InformationWeek author, David Wagner, is handing out humorous and serious awards for the geekiest stuff of the year. From TVs and movies to internet memes and bad science, the Geekies have everything covered. Spoiler: He's giving Benedict Cumbatch the award for best photobomb of the year. Do you remember it? And Wagner is probably the only person giving out an award for proving men are stupid. The only thing missing is the red carpet.

Each week, Wagner looks at the intersection between science and popular culture so he's uniquely suited to make surprising and fun take on the standard end of the year awards. Who else hands out awards for epic rap battles and best scientific achievement in space in the same column?

Check out this week's Geekend to review the year in Geek and argue over the winners and losers. Join in the argument before he hands out another award for a movie that hasn't even been made yet.
