MCM Buzz at the Eagle Awards

MCM Buzz was proud to be able to attend the fantastic Eagle Awards at the London MCM Expo on Friday night. Hosted by MCM Buzz’s own editor Stuart Claw and Futurama’s Billy West, the evening was somewhat laid-back, with witty banter between the presenters. If you were keeping an eye on the ‘#mcmbuzz’ trend on Twitter, then you would have seen all of the updates thanks to MCM Buzz writer and artist, Christopher Chong.

The awards started with Billy West being interviewed by Stuart in a mock interview of famous Futurama characters from Fry to The Professor. Before the awards announcements began, Billy West made a small speech, noting that when he was younger, “artists were my heroes. Celebrities have never been my heroes… [artists and writers] are an endless inspiration”. MCM Buzz successfully streamed the awards live via the website. Sadly, a number of the winners could not attend the event, but a selected handful of winners gave speeches via recorded video. The Roll of Honour winner, Dave Gibbons, made an amusing speech in person admitting; “I thought myself a lad about comics…but I realise I’m probably a dad…or even a granddad!”.

It was a successful and entertaining evening, and all of the results can be seen below:
