Dish Awards: The Ones You Love To Hate

Andrew Sullivan —  Dec 28 2014 @ 5:19pm

Hathos is the attraction to something you really can’t stand; it’s the compulsion of revulsion. And according to the voting thus far, this creepy fusion of fat-shaming and evangelism is the second most hathetic moment of 2014:

But still in the lead is Maureen Dowd’s description of what it was like to overdose on edibles:

Then I felt a scary shudder go through my body and brain. I barely made it from the desk to the bed, where I lay curled up in a hallucinatory state for the next eight hours. I was thirsty but couldn’t move to get water. Or even turn off the lights. I was panting and paranoid, sure that when the room-service waiter knocked and I didn’t answer, he’d call the police and have me arrested for being unable to handle my candy. I strained to remember where I was or even what I was wearing, touching my green corduroy jeans and staring at the exposed-brick wall. As my paranoia deepened, I became convinced that I had died and no one was telling me. And then I wrote a column on Hillary.

Cast your vote for these or any of the other five Hathos Alert finalists here. Once you’ve done that, please consider also voting for the 2014 Malkin Award, Poseur Alert, Yglesias Award, Cool Ad, Face Of The Year, and the year’s best Chart, Mental Health Break and View From Your Window. We’ve now introduced voting for the Map Of The Year and Beard Of The Year as well! Polls will close on New Year’s Eve, so be sure to make your picks before then:

Please note: due to there not being enough nominees this year, we will not be issuing a 2014 Hewitt Award, Moore Award, or Dick Morris Award. You can learn more about those and all our awards here.
