In case you weren’t aware, television writer and producer Bill Oakley (The Simpsons, Mission Hill, Portlandia, Disenchantment) took on a new calling in life in 2018 with the start of his fast-food reviews on Instagram. They’ve been going strong since May and have covered everything from KFC to Alaska Airlines’ automatic pancake machine to Heinz Mayochup. To end his debut year as a fast-food reviewer, Oakley — the mastermind behind The Simpsons’ much-memed “steamed hams” — launched his own fast-food awards show titled the Steamie Awards, where he handed out ten awards to his favorite fast-food experiences of the year.
Check out the ten lucky Steamie winners of 2018 below, complete with a bunch of special guest presenters:
