The Golden Maddies

Hollywood has the Academy Awards (or better known as the Oscars). The Liberty has the Golden Maddies. With the 80th annual Academy Awards this month, NYLiberty.com is rolling out the red carpet to introduce its first annual Golden Maddies ceremony.

We’re a little more low-key than celebrities – no floor-length gowns, stalkarazzi or George Clooney, but we do like to glam it up. The same way people tune into awards shows to see their favorite actors and actresses do their magic, is very much like the loads of fans who file into Madison Square Garden every summer to see the Liberty dominate on the court.

With our players busy overseas, we can’t hand out any actual awards, but what we can do is hold our own mock ceremony, where you cast your vote on categories relevant to our last season.

Leading up to the actual Oscars, we’ll be revealing new categories (and their Oscar equivalent) for the Golden Maddies, so keep checking back so you can vote!

Without further ado, the categories for the Golden Maddies are …

First Category: Best Starter
(Oscar equivalent: Actress in a Leading Role)
