Honda "Grrr"
Wieden + Kennedy/London and Honda won a second Best in Show honor in as many ceremonies Wednesday night in New York, where the U.K. commercial "Grrr" was presented with the night's top honor at the One Show. Just two weeks ago, the commercial also earned the top prize at the Andy Awards, a double play we haven't seen since, well, last year, when Honda "Cog" -- also from Wieden + Kennedy/London -- took top honors at both shows.

Does this make "Grrr" a shoo-in for the Grand Prix in Cannes? Not necessarily. The year "Cog" went to Cannes, it was bested by Ikea "Lamp" from Crispin Porter + Bogusky, although Wieden's animated homage to hate is thought by many to be this year's Cannes favorite. We'll see.

Crispin Porter + Bogusky, meanwhile, dominated the One Show Interactive competition by winning 12 Pencils and the night's top honor, Best in Show, for its acclaimed "Subservient Chicken" campaign for Burger King. Full lists of Pencil winners in this year's One Show competitions -- including One Show, One Show Interactive and One Show Design winners -- can be downloaded from The One Club's website.
