The winners this year were simply outstanding. The Best Skit winner presented a scene about Romeo and Juliet (in the original Klingon) featuring the Animaniacs as the chorus. Truly bizarre and extremely funny. It was only slightly edged out in fan favor and by the judges by the outrageous Star Wars and Austin Powers combination of the Sith Who Shagged Me.
Needless to say, a good time was had by all. We would like to thank our gracious judges: Cheralyn Lambeth, Jack Stauffer, Richard Hatch, Richard Herd, Grace Lee Whitney, Peter Jurasik, and Robert Trebor. Masters of Ceremony were George Perez and Peter David. Thank you to all of these outstanding and talented folks! See you next time.
