Because dammit, we need more awards shows

MobyLives alerts us to a new made-for-TV book award:

Reed Business Information – the conglomerate that owns Publishers Weekly – and NBC Universal Television (which is owned by the conglomerate General Electric), have combined to launch a new book award, to be called the Quill Awards, which “will be presented at an October ceremony in New York.” According to a report by PW Newsline editor Jim Milliot (which is unavailable as a link), “NBC has agreed to carry the Quills ceremony on at least its 14 owned-and-operated stations that includes outlets in most major markets.”

Quills, eh? So can we look forward to Geoffrey Rush making the presentation in assless chaps?
