It’s Glitz. It’s Glamour. It’s Boring.


Toronto will host the world’s first Boring Awards, recognizing achievement in boredom.


The world’s first ever Boring Awards will take place Tuesday night at The Royal Cinema at 7 pm along with the premiere of the “hugely entertaining” (Montreal Gazette) film Boredom.


Categories include:  Most Boring Person of the Year, Most Boring Moment and Most Boring Canadian City among others.


The first awards will focus mostly on Canadian affairs, according to organizers.

“We know boring,” said Boring Awards Producer Ina Fichman. Canada has sometimes been characterized as a boring place. Famously Canada inspired the most boring headline ever once published in the New York Times titled; "Worthwhile Canadian Initiative."


The winners will be chosen by the Boring Academy; a mix of accountants, tax officials and IT networking specialists. The nominees include Rob Ford, Prime Minster Stephen Harper and the city of Brampton, Ontario.


According the documentary Boredom, while tastes do vary in boredom, generally speaking people do find the same things boring. The film also reveals that chronic boredom can kill you.


Boredom, directed by Albert Nerenberg is the first feature documentary ever on the nature of boredom.
