The Oscars: Kansas City Edition

Oscar season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean Hollywood gets to have all the fun. It’s been an amazing year for Kansas City, chalk full of championships, viral videos and Bachelor-themed weddings.

To honor all of these great accomplishments, we’re handing out the most prestigious made up awards in the history of blogs: Mazumis. Think of them kind of like Oscars: they reward excellence, but you don’t need to get brutally attacked by a bear to finally win one (Congrats Leo!).

Without further ado, here are this year’s Mazumi winners:
