Ogilvy Ravages the Clios, Takes Home 5 Golds


The 49th annual Clios took place in South Beach over the weekend. Content & Contact, Integrated Campaign, Innovative Media, Print and Design were recognized at the Fillmore in Jackie Gleason Theatre on Friday.

Ogilvy & Mather received the highest number of Gold Clios -- ironic, considering its founder was so resentful of award shows: three for Frankfurt and two for New York; followed closely by BBDO Worldwide (four Golds) and DDB Worldwide (also four).

Award whores rejoice: if you didn't get a Pencil or a Clio this season, there are still opportunities to win a Lion or a Coney. But oh, if these hype-ridden gold stars are your raisons d'etre, we pity your clients.

Is advertising following comedy's footsteps where comedians get all "witty" and play their bits to the back of the room? It's great to see so many agencies have perfected creating ads for the ad community. We get it, but, we're the ones that aren't gonna' go out and grab the products off the damn shelves.
