While most award shows inadvertently celebrate steaming piles of garbage, this one purposely celebrates steaming piles of garbage, and we’re all better for it. The first annual (please be annual) Golden Probe Awards celebrate “Outstanding achievements in the field of sexism and anti-abortion extremism.” At last, these douchebags are finally getting the recognition they deserve.
Led by Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glaser, who announced the event via predictably charming video, the awards are a fundraiser for Lady Parts Justice, which aims to raise voter awareness about the injustices women face at the hands of our legal system. Jacobson and Glaser are joined by a who’s who of real life superheroes: Sarah Silverman, Samantha Bee, Jessica Williams, Lea Delaria etc. etc. etc. They will be hosted by hip-hop artist and all around badass Jean Grae.
While the nominees will not be announced prior to the show (as Jacobson and Glaser point out, “Each day, a new performance of epic douchebaggery emerges), they do announce the categories, and they are glorious.
Watch the announcement below and don’t miss the awards themselves on October 2nd, either live at New York’s (le) Poisson Rouge or streamed live online via the venue’s website.
