Now that's one list you won't see Miley Cyrus on...
JADE'S HEADLINE OF THE YEAR:
The election of Barack Obama.
"Whether this historic moment turns into a historic presidency will be the story of the next few years."
DAVE'S HEADLINE OF THE YEAR:
The Mumbai Terror Attacks.
"I was actually in Delhi when terror struck tourist spots in Mumbai. And to think India's had no less than 60 terror attacks this year itself - is shocking but at the same time, really challenging to think how much of it makes news here in Australia."
JADE'S FASHION ACCESSORY OF THE YEAR:
"Fashion? What's that exactly? I'm gonna say headphones. As an avid public transporter, I've developed theories about the personalities of the people on my travels based on their headphones."
DAVE'S FASHION ACCESSORY OF THE YEAR:
"2008's seen a departure from serious, classic shades to more plastic, kitsch and retro frames and designs. Forget practicality and welcome trashy, throwaway glam!"
JADE'S CINEMATIC WOWZER OF THE YEAR:
The Dark Knight.
"It was really hyped but totally lived up to it. My Aussie recommendation is The Black Balloon."
DAVE'S CINEMATIC WOWZER OF THE YEAR:
"The sight of two robots holding hands had me dissolving to tears! Cruel timing given my boyfriend had just embarked on a three month overseas trip."
JADE'S CINEMATIC FIZZER OF THE YEAR:
The X Files Movie.
"I am really hesitant to say this as an avid X Files addict but I wanted so much more, and any true fan would agree with me. I've completely re-written the plot though and I'm happy to act it out if you like."
DAVE'S CINEMATIC FIZZER OF THE YEAR:
Highschool Musical 3.
"If Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron's saccharine duets were the only eyeball-rolling moments here, then Glitter's prepared me well."
JADE'S TECHNOLOGICAL ITEM OF THE YEAR:
A toss up between iPhone and Wii.
"I don't own either but the jealousy is palpable!"
DAVE'S TECHNOLOGICAL ITEM OF THE YEAR:
Bizarre USB sticks.
"From sushi pieces to Lego blocks, I can see great potential for USB drives to rise to pop art status in ways fluoro coloured CD-Rs couldn't."
JADE'S SONG OF THE YEAR:
Burn Bridges by The Grates.
Runners up: Bitch Went Nuts by Ben Folds ("I wish I could play this song on our show!"), Impatience by We Are Scientists, The Lighthouse Song by Josh Pyke.

JADE'S SPORTING MOMENT OF THE YEAR:
Matthew Mitcham's diving performance at the Olympics.

The miming at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.
