Uma, Oprah

Echojournal is collecting nominations for 2004 Medical Blog Awards. It should be interesting, because there are slightly fewer categories than medical bloggers.

I hope Dr. O goes all-out with this, Oscar-style: Excerpts from each nominee, Joan Rivers-style interviews, Lifetime Achievement awards, In Memoriam for defunct blogs... If he really wanted to, he could announce one winner every twenty minutes, dragging the proceedings well into the wee hours...

And how about a MTV-style version of the awards, with categories like Best Post or Best Flame War?
