AGtM Goes To The Geekie Awards – Always a Bridesmaid!

share on:

If you have been living under a rock, you might not know that AGtM was nominated for the 1st Annual The Geekie Awards in the Best Retail Store/Website!

Unfortunately we lost (more on that later), but it was truly a wonderful experience and it really is an honor to be nominated (even if that is corny to say)!

Editor In Chief, Tricia Ennis, Editor of Books and Comics, Monica Piluso, and myself, all hopped on planes this past Friday, said good-bye to the East Coast and hello to sunny Los Angles!

Of course we did some touristy stuff…

Sunday was the big day! And sure, we took almost the whole day getting ready in our hotel room but I think the end results were worth it…

The League of S.T.E.A.M entertained the crowd waiting to get into the venue.

Once we got into the venue we rocked the red carpet, took a picture with R2-D2, and did an interview! (I will share those pictures on Facebook and Twitter once we get them).

We were seated at Table 17, where we were greeted by our super cool 3D printer!

Alison Haislip (The Nerdist), did a kick-ass job hosting the show!

Stan Lee decided to become even more awesome with this epic song he sang, while accepting his award!

Our line buddy won the Geekie for Best Comic/Graphic Novel!  Here is Ken Pisani on stage accepting for Colonus!

I would like to say that Kristen is totally a badass Geek! She did a wonderful job putting together this award show.  It completely blew my mind, as well as everyone I talked too, how amazing the show went considering it was the first year! Snaps for Kristen!!!

So….like I mentioned before, we lost to The Nerd Machine

But you know what…I am cool with it! The whole show was such a great experience and totally amaze-balls!  Plus, we got to meet our peers and fellow losers, Wrong Button and Have You Nerd! New Friendships > An Award…right?
