The Frat Pack Tribute Earmuff Awards - 2005

Wedding Crashers, Will Ferrell Big Winners at Inaugural Frat Pack Earmuff Awards

March 4, 2006

Box office hit Wedding Crashers took home twelve awards at the inaugural Frat Pack Tribute “Earmuff” Movie Academy Awards, according to site owner Kevin Crossman. Crashers took the prizes for Best Picture, Best Actor (Vince Vaughn), Best Actress (Rachel McAdams), Best Supporting Actress (Isla Fisher), Best Scene-Play (Dinner Table Scene), and Best Sex Scene. Actor Will Ferrell led all acting nominees with four wins, including Best Frat Pack Cameo (Wedding Crashers), Best Celebrity Cameo (playing cowbell on Saturday Night Live), Best Sound Bite, and Best Man-Child Actor.

The Earmuff Awards celebrate The Frat Pack, the informal name for Hollywood’s comedy clique that includes Ben Stiller, Owen and Luke Wilson, Jack Black, and Steve Carell. Carell’s song about the Frat Pack on Saturday Night Live won the award for Best Non-Movie Appearance, and his breakthough film The 40 Year-Old Virgin won six awards, including Best Supporting Actor (Seth Rogen), Best Catch Phrase (”You Know How I Know You’re Gay?”), and Best Use of Drugs/Alcohol.

The awards were announced on the March 4th episode (mp3) of The Frat Pack Tribute Podcast, a weekly internet radio show hosted by Crossman. Members of The Frat Pack Tribute Movie Academy announced the awards on the show. None of the Frat Pack stars were in attendance.
