And the Hulie goes to...
And here, to accept the Hulie, is a word from the amazingly talented Craig Melville.
"The producers of Dentally Disturbed are very excited to have won "Best Comedic Short." The other films in the category were really great so it's awesome to be chosen from a selection of very funny films. We really appreciate the award and we wish the Hulu Awards all the best for the future. "
After 20,000 audience votes, the audience favorite was also Dentally Disturbed. It garnered a shockingly strong 63% of the audience vote.
The other nominees were:
How to Cope With Rejection
Music For One Apartment and Six Drummers
Shaolin Delivery Boy
With some of the categories in our awards, we all have preconceived notions about what will win, because the major networks have crammed their shows down our throats over a period of years. But in this category, our panelists and audience members went into the selections cold, and viewed about fifty different comedic short films before making their selections. The fact that Dentally Disturbed triumphed with both the panelists and the voting audience speaks to the quality of the piece.
