The winners of the 2018 Teddy Bear of the Year (TOBY) Industry’s Choice Awards were announced at the Crossroads Doll & Teddy Bear Show in San Diego Jan. 6. Approximately 150 entries submitted by nearly 60 artists from around the world were each given a score by fellow professionals within the teddy bear collecting field. The highest-scoring entries in each category become this year’s Industry’s Choice winners, and will go on to be the nominees for the Public’s Choice Awards voted on by Teddy Bear & Friends readers.

When comic Amy Schumer does the talk-show circuit, promoting a new movie, book, or cable special, she makes sure that she comes to the set with scads of new material. Whether you find Schumer disturbingly hilarious or hilariously disturbed, she is not a performer who wants to show up, sit on the couch, and appear staid and reserved. She gained fame for her tell-all monologues — where she reveals secrets that used to be classified as too embarrassing to share with the public, or even with a really good close friend. Schumer has become an A-lister by portraying herself as a naturally smart but C+ student who knew that stacking up life experiences would count for more than getting good grades and being a good girl.
