Trophies were handed out on October 26 after 'Rock of Ages'

The wait is over. The winners of the first annual Golden Mullet Awards, presented by Rock of Ages and Broadway.com, were announced on October 26 from the stage of the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, immediately following the evening performance of everyone's favorite '80s hair-band musical.

Rock of Ages came out on top in two of of the five competitive categories (a sixth honorary prize was presented to Tony Awards scenery victim Bret Michaels of Poison). The show's onstage band, Arsenal, won in the category of Nothing But a Kick-Ass Band and romantic leads Constantine Maroulis and Kerry Butler triumphed in the category of Best "In the Heat of the Moment" Moment.

But you didn't have to be in the cast of Rock of Ages to take home a prize. Christopher Sieber, who plays evil Lord Farquaad eight times a week in Shrek the Musical was the winner in the Waiting for a Villain Like You category, Hair lead Will Swenson (who played in the off-Broadway production of Rock of Ages) took home the Can't Fight the Feeling to Touch Your Hair prize and the cast of In the Heights was named Cast Most Likely to Dance on a Car in a Whitesnake Video.

Billed as "Broadway's fourth-most coveted award," the tongue-in-cheek Golden Mullet aims to recognize the categories of Broadway talent that audiences care most about. According to producers, a "select group of prestigious theater professionals determines the nominees based on merit and the likelihood that they'll show up to the awards." Voting was open to the public right here on Broadway.com

Congratulations to all the winners!
