Click on the "Comments" link below and gimme your inevitable grief, screams of outrage and pleas for sanity in a lunatic world. The top five noted in each category below are listed in likelihood of winning, by the way. Below those, other contenders in each category are listed alphabetically, but, of course, you don't really need to keep them in mind because, as all kudosland knows, I'm never wrong.
