As the summer sun begins its descent towards the horizon for the final time in 2010, let us take a moment to reflect on the hilarity we were bombarded with over the last year through media, music and life in general. Welcome to the first ever 'Simon Says Humorous Awards'.
Best Political Moment Winner: Julia Gillard.
One night in June we went to sleep under the leadership of a white male that resembled a duck, aka Kevin Rudd. We awoke to the new dictatorship of Female Ranga Rule. Yes, Ms Gillard pulled a swiftly and fought her way to the top of the Australian Political ladder. Apparently her chin didn't get the memo though - it seems to still be on vacation.
Most Unsurprising Celebrity Secret Revelation: Ricky Martin
Looks like She didn't Bang hard enough, eh? Ricky Martin un-shocked the world by announcing his homosexuality, aka the worlds worst kept secret. He has two surrogate children, has only ever been photographed with 'male friends' over the last decade and has an apparent leather pant addiction. Sorry, Ricky - you weren't fooling anyone. But kudos for coming out.
Best Unreal Television Fail: The 2010 Aria Awards
Awkward from beginning to end, but just like a car accident - unable to tear your eyes away from. This blunder of a production had more cringe worthy moments than an episode of Jersey Shore. Jessica Mauboy couldn't pronounce basic words (de-butt, anyone?), Angus and Julia Stone considered their cat worthy of a shout out, and someone double booked the Opera House; cue strange, celebrity-backyard-bbq-style event on the forecourt. FAIL.
