October 25, 2006 - The suspense is over, stoners. Last night at BB King’s in New York, the 6th High Times Stony Awards were handed out in a packed club filled with celebrity stoners.

Weeds and Grandma’s Boy both snagged three Stonys each. Weeds was named Best TV Series and also won the Best Actor (Justin Kirk) and Best Actress (Mary-Louise Parker) awards in the TV categories. Grandma’s Boy was named Best Stoner Movie and also took the Best Actor (Allen Covert) and Best Pot Scene awards in the movie categories. A Scanner Darkly was named Best Movie/Drama.

Tommy Chong was also a big winner. He was named Top Pot Comic and a film about his life, a/k/a Tommy Chong, won for Best Documentary.

Jeff “The Dude” Dowd was given the Stony Achievement award for inspiring The Big Lebowski.

Among the winners and presenters at the Stonys were Jenji Kohan and Justin Kirk (from Weeds), Adrianne Curry and Chris Knight (from My Fair Brady), Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings (from Chappelle’s Show), Zach Galifianakis (from Dog Bites Man), Ann Druyan and Allen St. Pierre (from NORML), directors James Toback, Nicholas Jarecki, Josh Gilbert and Gillian Grisman, Penthouse Pets Aria Giovanni and Krista Ayne, rock star Ryan Miller (from Guster) and Dowd.

Hip-hopper Redman and comedian Doug Benson hosted the Stonys. Benson (from Best Week Ever) won the coveted Stoner of the Year award. Redman performed a 25-minute set after the awards concluded.
