A panel of WOW-staffers was convened recently to take a look at the inventive packaging that the Emmy screeners come wrapped in. We have a few voters in residence here, so we decided to give the best and worst arrivals to our office our own award – the most prestigious and rare Wowie statuette. We’ll be doling out a couple or so every day.
And the WOWIE AWARD FOR THE MOST TASTEFUL PACKAGING goes to LIFETIME. Dark grey flannel textured booklet with the network’s name discreetly tucked away on the back.
And the WOWIE AWARD FOR LEAST PRETENTIOUS PACKAGING (or WE DONT NEED TO RELY ON PACKAGING) goes to THE DAILY SHOW. No tricks here. It’s not even a DVD, just a simple back-to-basics VHS with the mug of TV’s hottest star on the box.
