Ariel Helwani accepts his award for best interview of 2011

Ariel Helwani accepts his award for best interview of 2011

Hopefully one day we can have brief acceptance speeches from every MiddleEasy award winner. Layzie can film the speech, and if the winner rambles on for too long one of us can be off camera with a boom box ready to play the orchestra music that signals the winner to wrap it up.

Future MiddleEasy award winners include Steve Jobs, Ayn Rand and Stephen Hawking. In the present Ariel Helwani was the first person to ever accept a MiddleEasy award on camera. Which will be an interesting piece of trivia twenty years from now. View Ariel’s speech in all of it’s glory below.
