6th High Times Stony Awards Scheduled For Oct. 24th In New York
Published September 26, 2006

The Stonys return to BB King's for High Times' 6th annual awards presentation celebrating the years' highest and stoniest movies and television shows.

 

Showtime's marijuana-friendly series Weeds received eight nominations, including Best TV Series, Best TV Actress, Best TV Actor and Stoner of the Year. HBO's Entourage snagged four.

The Adam Sandler-produced comedy, Grandma's Boy, leads all movies with six nominations, including Best Stoner Movie, Best Actor in a Movie, Best Pot Scene in a Movie, and Best Song in a Movie or TV Series. Haven, with four nominations, and A Scanner Darkly and Stoned, with three each, are the other front-runners in the movie categories.
 
It's been a strong year for stoner TV shows and drug-related movies, says Stonys executive producer Steve Bloom. “Our objective is to highlight the best and most accurate stories and portrayals. And have a good time doing it.”
 

The Stonys will be handed out in a star-studded ceremony on Oct. 24 at BB King's in New York. Hip-hop artist Redman and stand-up comedian Doug Benson (The Marijuana-Logues, Best Week Ever) will co-host the event. Redman will perform a set of songs after the Stony Awards, followed by the funk-band Herbal Nation. During the Stonys, singer-songwriter Tara Angel will perform her version of the Weeds theme song, "Little Boxes."

Awards will be given in 21 categories. Seven categories are currently being voted on at www.hightimes.com/stonys. Many of the winners will be at the Stonys to receive their awards while some will be accepted by video. Nominees expected to attend, as well as presenters, will be announced in the weeks leading up to the event.
 
Each award will be preceded by video clips of the nominees. A green carpet photo opportunity for photographers will take place from 7-8 pm. The Stonys will begin at 9 pm. BB King's is located at 237 W. 42 St. in the heart of New York's Time Square.
