*Poppy walks out looking as stunning as ever, serving her patented “fresh from the dermatologist” mug. Chiffon looks like she’s ready to pass out as she has clearly opted to be violently squeezed into a corset yet again as opposed to dieting.*

Poppy Fields: Thank you Chiffon. You look…….like you can barely breathe. Are you sure you’re okay?

PF: Just don’t fall on me when you invariably pass out. I don’t want look bad with Lady Gaga and that cute little boy from One Direction sitting in the front row (Poppy makes the “call me” gesture with her hand at Harry Styles).
CD: Well, if there was a Cougar of the Year Award, I have a pretty good hunch who would be talking that home tonight. So what do say my dear older sister, are you ready to give away some of our world famous pink trophies?
PF: I’m ready when you are….assuming you can put down that loin of pork you’re munching on.

CD: Congratulations Mrs. Betty Bowers for her win. I’m sure she’ll pray for all the heathens watching these awards.
PF: Heaven knows some of this crew needs it.
CD: So Poppy its time for a very special award, the 2015 WERRRK.com LGBT Moment of the Year! Now when we had our staff meeting to discuss this year’s awards, we quickly realized that there was only one logical choice for this honor and you suggested we make this an editorial award, not up for vote. We’re very proud to make this announcement, written by Poppy herself and narrated by the one and only Deven Green…..ladies and gentlemen, your 2015 WERRRK.com LGBT Moment of the Year!
PF: That was lovely. It brings a tear to my eye.

PF: That’s right Chiffon this award was literally decided in the final minute of voting, making it the closest vote of the year! I can’t wait a minute longer! Take it away Bob!
PF: A tie?
CD: A tie! I assume we’ll have a steel cage match to truly settle this but that will be down the road!

PF: Congratulations to Misty Violet on her big win! That’s an impressive victory considering how many talented performers there are here in Los Angeles. COUGH COUGH!
CD: Stop with the coughing Poppy! You’re the Creative Editor here at WERRRK.com. You weren’t eligible to win Queen of LA!
PF: I had something in my throat!
CD: If I had a nickel for every time you said that……
PF: So its on to our next award, the 2015 Drag Anthem of the Year Award (2014 winner: Let It Go by Idina Menzel)! Chiffon do you want to explain do our viewers at home what this one is all about?
CD: For sure Poppy! This is THE definitive drag song of the year, the song the you were most likely to hear the queens turning out in drag bars from coast to coast! We’re very excited to have all the way from Austin, Texas, a former Miss’d America, the fabulous Sabel Scities here to present this award!
CD: Congratulations Rihanna! Not only is “Bitch Better Have My Money” the Drag Anthem of the Year, its also what queens say when they’re going up to get paid from the bar owner at the end of the night.
PF: Ain’t that the truth!
CD: Now Poppy hold on to your knickers because our new two presenters are going to make your blood pressure rise!
PF: Not just my blood pressure doll! We are so excited to have two of the star of the upcoming show “Newlyweds: The First Year” premiering this Sunday on Bravo (9pm Est/8pm Central), fitness expert Craig Ramsay and celebrity stylist Brandon Liberati! They both were gracious enough to be special guest judges in our pageant earlier this year and now they’re back to announce the winner of the 2015 WERRRK.com Drag Look of the Year (2014 winner: Phi Phi O’Hara)! Take it away boys!
CD: Congratulations Violet on your win and good luck Brandon and Craig on your new show. Poppy, you’re fanning yourself, do you need a minute?
PF: Oh dear, no I’m fine. I’m fine. I’ll be fine.
CD: So we’re going head all the way south for our next presenter, all the way down to Key West to catch up with my good friend the adorable Faith Michaels who is here to present the first ever WERRRK.com Bio Queen of the Year award! This award proved to be extremely popular with the voters and it looks like it will be a staple of our award show for years to come! Take it away Faith!
CD: Congratulations Kat on your win! Chicago is proving to be quite the fertile city for drag talent, isn’t it Poppy?

Make it happen in ’16 Chicago gurls!
CD: That’s exciting! I can’t wait to see who takes that award home next year!

My fabulous friend from Seattle, Robbie Turner is here to announce the winner of another incredibly close vote that had all ten nominees in the mix to win nearly down to the wire! The floor is yours Robbie!
CD: Congratulations Phaedra! We can’t wait to see more from you in the coming year! No pressure but don’t make us look bad! *wink*
PF: Leave the gurl alone Chiffon. You’re going to look plenty bad on your own when that corset finally bursts my dear!
