Yes, Joss, You DO Deserve It

Thanks to fb for the heads-up on this story. The Producers Guild of America will be honouring Joss Whedon with the Vanguard Award at the PGA Awards in January 2010, saying “Joss Whedon has mastered the art of melding the newest technology with inspired storytelling, truly exemplifying the spirit of the Vanguard Award.”

In a typically hilarious response, Joss said, “This is an honor I didn’t expect and probably don’t deserve. The truth is, I’ve never actually guarded a van. But I am a super-total visionary, so that fits. I’m ready to take my place next to the guys who made ‘THX 1138’ and ‘Tin Toy’ (Did they ever do anything else, btw? They showed such promise.). This is a time of radical change in media delivery and content, and I’m honestly proud the PGA has singled me out as someone who sort of knows what’s going on.”

LOL the PGA, now there's a Guild that hardly ever gets any recognition.
