4th Annual IIG Awards

banner 4th annual

The fourth annual IIG Awards coincided with the tenth anniversary of the IIG, thus leading to a confusingly titled event. This year, we packed the house with some of the great skeptics, skipped the Truly Terrible Television award, and made it a more high brow event.

Mainstream Entertainment

Two television shows got Iggies this year the first was the Sci Fi Channel’s “Eureka” – the story of a town populated by frontier scientists. “Eureka” producer Ed Fowler accepted the award — the first hand-crafted ceramic Iggie to be presented.

CBS’s “The Mentalist” was next to get an Iggie. The series features a man who uses cold-reading skills to solve crimes. “Mentalist” producer Jimm Gadd accepted the award.

Houdini Hall of Honor

This year, science educator and puzzle designer Martin Gardner was inducted into the HHH for his work as a skeptic and founding member of CSICOP (now CSI).
