Audience Choice is the best you can win in any contest, because the audience has no vested interest and just know what they like. As far as Drama vs. Thriller, it doesn't matter. What's in a name? A rose by any other name has as many thorns. Jethro Tull won the first Heavy Metal Grammy, and Hitler was Time Magazine's Man of the Year. The Waiter, by definition, waits; and as The Waiter waits, the tables begin to fill with drooling high-end cinematic diners waiting to be served their meal of blood, guts, existential intrigue and ultra-cool dialog.
