For Immediate Release

EASTON, Pa./EWORLDWIRE/Jan. 8, 2008 --- A dysfunctional family, a former Queen, a cheerleader and a crazy cooking show are among the winners of the 1st Annual Wave Awards - the industry's premier awards honoring entertainment content available on mobile phones.

Winners in twenty-five categories were announced by Academy of Wireless Arts, Video and Entertainment Chief Kip Hartman. Nominees were selected by the Academy, with voting online by the public.

MTV Networks won the coveted Content Creator of the Year Award, aided by wins for Favorite Reality Series, "The Hills," and Favorite Mobile Dramatic Series, "South of Nowhere."

"South of Nowhere" star Mandy Musgrave was honored as Favorite Mobile Dramatic Artist, while former King of Queen's star Leah Remini was voted Favorite Mobile Comedy Artist for, "In the Motherhood." Edgy cooking show, "Bitchin' Kitchen" was voted Favorite Mobile Comedy Series.

In the four clipped-from-TV categories, "Heroes" was a multiple winner for Favorite Clipped Dramatic Artist, with Hayden Panettiere getting the nod, and Favorite Clipped Dramatic Series. The animated "Family Guy" was voted Favorite Clipped Comedy Series, with "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera voted Favorite Clipped Comedy Artist.

Multiple Wave Award winners include Justin Timberlake for Mobile Music Artist of the Year and Favorite Music Video for What Goes Around (Comes Around) and popular game manufacturer Gameloft for Favorite Mobile Action Game (Heroes: The Mobile Game) and Favorite Mobile Strategy Game (CSI: Miami: The Mobile Game).

In technology categories, the public voted Apple's iPhone as Mobile Handset of the Year; Verizon Wireless was chosen Favorite Wireless Carrier, and Bonfire Media's WikiMobile was voted Favorite Mobile Application.

The Academy also announced that it will honor the late Gene Roddenberry with the 1st annual Pioneer Award for Lifetime Achievement in Mobile Communications and Entertainment.
