And the Celebritology Honors Will Be...

By Liz Kelly

In what can only be described as a turnout worse than that of the last presidential election, we have declared a winner in the poll determining our inaugural Celebritology Honors.

To quickly recap: A couple of weeks ago I asked for nominations for an award that Celebritology will bestow on a deserving celeb on a yearly basis. Last Friday, you voted for your favorite ideas. Today, along with unanimous agreement from an in-house council, we have a clear winner -- or winners, rather. The ideas were so good, we weren't able to limit the fun to just one award.

The Yearly Celebritology Honors will be:

1. Celebrity most likely to be insignificant if it weren't for the paparazzi and celebrity tabloids/blogs. (29.1 percent of votes, nominated by reader Maybe Jones)

2. Most inane comment, demonstrating complete self absorption and cluelessness. (13.5 percent of votes, nominated by reader jmsbh)

3. Most fascinating and/or anticipated celebrity train wreck of the year. (12.4 percent of votes, also nominated by reader Maybe Jones)

And, in the interest of keeping the process as democratic as a clunky Internet poll will allow, voting for the above honors will open Wednesday, with winners announced next Wednesday, July 5. (If you have any must-include nominees, please e-mail


Tom Cruise said he wants 10 kids. The WRITER said that he would have to have 9 more. Tom isn't the one who discounted the two children he has with Nicole Kidman, the writer is (although I hate to cut Cruise a break on anyhting). -- TC comments on Tom and Nicole, Together Again

I need to plead innocence here. I am fully aware that Cruise shares custody of two children with Nicole Kidman. I -- apparently stupidly and naively -- assumed he meant he wanted 10 additional kids with Katie Holmes.


Comments of the Week:
whats wrong with you people you don't now why Paris is famous shes famous because her dad owns the Hilton hotels and because she is a model. Nicole's famous because her dads a singer and because they are the prettiest girls ever. -- Amanda comments on Forget Paris (and Nicole)

I don't think that is Britney -- she doesn't look crappy enough. Seriously... -- AKMITC on Friday Morning Mix (and Britney's new black hair)

Here's my question about Tom Cruise and kids:

As I recall, Tom and Nicole Kidman couldn't have kids, and I vaguely recall Tom saying it was because of him. (I may be wrong here.) So now he has a baby with Katie Holmes (where are the pictures?).

Am I the only one who things something doesn't quite add up here, especially considering the many, many rumors about Tom?

Paris problem - I hate her as much as you. I hate that she is famous and I think she isn't very attractive (not even inner beauty to help out).

So, Liz, why don't you be the first celebritologist NOT to write about her. If the Paris-ites want info, they'll find it. YOu don't have to promote her.
