The Emmy Awards - HubNugget Style

8:51 a.m. Commentator Enelle Lamb begins the HubNugget Emmy Awards broadcast

What a glorious day! Everywhere trees are beginning to sport their autumn colors, apples are showing their delicious red coats and parents are breathing a sigh of relief that summer is almost over.

Here, at the HubNugget clubhouse, the team is excitedly preparing for the HubNugget Emmy Awards celebration. The guests have been invited, categories chosen, and the nominees will soon be showcasing their wonderful selection of new hubs.

The presenters

It isn't often that we get a chance to get up close and personal with the celebrities that make the presentations. I know as a presenter myself, I'm absolutely thrilled to be here and I'm terribly excited to see who will be the lucky winner of the HubNugget Emmy for each of this week's categories...I can't seem to stop purring..."

Let's see if we can catch up with Patty Inglish MS...

Patty...Patty...do you have a few words for our voters?

*shoves microphone under Patty's nose*

"I am just thrilled to be a presenter for the HubNugget Emmy Awards! There is so much great new talent out there, it makes my head swim and my eyes bobble on the waves. But then, I always did like the ocean! "

Thanks Patty! Oh! There's RedElf! RedElf, do you have a moment? Our voters would love to hear from you!

*shoves microphone under RedElf's nose*

"It is such a joy to be one of the Red Carpet presenters at this year's Emmy Awards for HubNuggets Excellence as part of the team that promotes new writers. It's often difficult to narrow the field to just a few choices because there are so many great articles being written every day on HubPages, but it's always exciting to discover new works."

I couldn't agree more! Wait...I see Koffeeklatch Gals...Gals, Gals, can you tell us in your own words what this means to you?

*shoves microphone in front of Gals' face*

"I can't tell you how delighted I am to be here presenting the Books, Literature, and Writing category with the wonderful RedElf and and yourself Enelle Lamb. We have such a terrific group of Nominees I'm sure it will be a close finish!"

Oh Gals, you say the sweetest things!

...And there you have it folks! Stay tuned for the Official HubNugget Emmy Awards...brought to you by HubPages.com, the best online publishing company in the business!

Our first cagetory

The first category tonight is considered by many scholars to be exceptionally important when it comes to research and development. Education and Science encompasses a wide range of topics, and the Hubbers in "the know" utilize this category to improve their skills, knowledge and in some cases, earning potential!

So without further adieu, here are the presenters, Jason Menayan, Maddie Ruud and Patty Inglish.

*...hands Patty the microphone...*

"America may need more Education and Science skills all around, but we at HubPages have a fascinating group of HubNugget Emmy nominees - domestic and international - in this category, all of whom bring deep research and knowledge to the forefront. They are sure to become known around the world! I sense a Noble Prize in the offing!"

Our first nominees in this category are, drum roll please...

Why Homeschoolers Choose to Stay Home and Raise Money and Promote Wellness with a Gardening Based Fundraiser.

Here to present the next two Nominees is Maddie Ruud...take it away Maddie...

"When I was a little girl, I was told I should pick a good grad school before I chose a wedding dress. Well, I'm not married, and I don't have a PhD, so I guess in my family's eyes just about the only thing I'm qualified for is announcing awards. Good thing we have some great nominees in the Education & Science category..."

The next two Nominees are: Seashells by the Sea Shore and 10 Easy Ways to Prepare for a Hurricane - And Great Hurricane Photos.

Our final presenter in the Education and Science category is Jason Menayan. Although he seldom makes public appearances, we are thrilled to have him on our stage to introduce the final nominees in the Education and Science category.

Our final nominees in this category are: My Daily Struggle is My Labor of Love - Connecting with Reluctant and Struggling Readers, Part 1 and The Human Experience - Time and the Hope of Immortality.

And the winner is....

Moving right along, our second category, Books, Literature and Writing is a field that all of our writers, both new and seasoned, utilize with great zeal! This category can help all of us with virtually every aspect of writing and publishing, both online and off. Whether you are considering a career in writing, want to improve your skills, potential, or simply want to reach a wider audience, I would recommend you begin your research here!

Our presenters are eager to get started, so I will turn the microphone over to RedElf, Koffeeklatch Gals, and I, Enelle Lamb, will wait patiently for my turn!

*...hands microphone to RedElf...*

"It gives me great pleasure to introduce some fine new writers for your enjoyment in the Books, Literature, and Writing category. Books, Literature and Writing is one of my favorite categories. You can always find such wonderful books and articles about cats, and fish, and catnip, and fishing, and catnaps, and fishing rods - and did I mention fish? "

Our first two nominees in the Books, Literature and Writing category are: Why Men Shouldn't Hate Mr. Darcy (and Other Important Lessons from Jane Austen) and Skills to Improve Your Writing.

We caught up with our next presenter, Koffeeklatch Gals earlier, and now here she is to present our next two nominees. They are: Help for Writers, Authors and Students - How to edit your own work, and Most Hated Characters in American Literature...be sure to read and vote for your favorites!

I must say that everyone looks amazing tonight! I do love an excuse to wear a new hat! I am absolutely tickled to present our final nominees in this category. They are: The Contract and How to Write Action Scenes.

And the winner is...

I love my bling - do you love my bling? I LOVE my bling.

Patty your new backdrop is stunning and so YOU! lj1, that dress is to die for, and Enelle, you carry off your new chapeau brilliantly! The cat really makes the hat! The "Maddie" is very cool - I want one for my mantle!

I MUST get a long black gown for these events in future, something off the shoulder but not revealing too much, you know. And a hat like Enelle's! it reminded me so much of Hedda Hopper's hats and of Audrey Hepburn. But I DO Love the backdrop, thanks so much.

Cheers to all the Wannabes! Delightful, each one. I want more votes!

I am exploring the Internet as I never have boefre. I have more time since I reitred. It seems like there are millions of blogs on the Internet today and the more I read the more I want to comment on them. Your blog is not like most of the blogs that I read on the Internet, and I like the style of what you are presenting here. I not only read and comment on the blogs of others but I now have my own blog and my own website. In the text boxes I have entered my email address and my website URL. Is it ok that I included them?
