Fast food is just one of those things that doesn’t get many plaudits.
Filling the gap is Bill Oakley, writer and producer of shows like The Simpsons, Disenchantment, Portlandia, who since early 2018 has been reviewing food from chains like KFC, Taco Bell, and even non-meat options like Impossible Burger.
Anyway, Oakley has developed quite a following because of his reviews, and it’s culminated in the Steamie Awards, an awards show for fast-food.
There are ten celebrity-hosted categories, including bizarre food combination of the year, disappointment of the year, condiment of the year, and belated discovery of the year. You can view them on Oakley’s Instagram page, but we’ve posted a handful here.
Take the plaudits for frozen pizza of the year, for example, which were hosted by The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady.
Or the award for non-chain burger of the year, presented by Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz.
While Portugal. The Man drummer Jason Sechrist had the honor of announcing the burger of the year.
Now, I think I may just need a Metamucil.
