“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Mama’s going to buy you a mockingbird, And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s going to buy you a diamond ring…”

It’s a new year already. We saw our first celebrity roast (and then proceeded to lose our shit), saw a spate of popular and high-quality serialized webseries (like TVF Pitchers) and saw our first Indian news satire show (On Air With AIB). We freaked out about Free Basics and Narendra Modi, went into an outrage about how no one was in an outrage over the Chennai floods, changed our profile pictures to show support for legalization of homosexuality in the US, for the victims of the Paris attacks and for Digital India (that last one I judged the hell out of).
For a dweeb like me, 2015 was pretty alright. While making a top 10 list of movies, though, I fell kinda short. So, I reasoned, why not take a look at the year that passed and hand out arbitrary awards to various things I watched in this year gone by?
So, without further ado, I present the Name Pending Awards 2015. Cue recorded fanfare.
