Booby Prizes, Roasts & Spoofs

Golden Pit Awards - First bestowed in 1987 the Golden Pit Awards satirized TV programs, commercials and movies that "offend millions of ethnic Americans mostly through negative stereotyping," such as depicting Blacks stealing bicycles, Jews arguing over prices, Italians involved in crime and Irish drunk in bars.

The trophy awarded was a white Styrofoam bust with a peach pit dangling from a blue ribbon.

Winners were selected from hundreds of entries by members of the 66 groups belonging to the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations such as NAACP and the United Farm Workers.
