Many of you people may have not heard of these awards, and those of you who have and managed to watch them will agree with me that they where the most breathtaking award ceremonies this year!

The entire ceremony was filled with great entertainment for viewers including a fashion show with models walking up and down the cat walk while they where on fire, ofcourse these models where not professional models but stunt men/women (not to try at home :P) Check it out here. The California Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger presented Burt Reynolds with a lifetime achievement award and also poked fun at his own ski accident in which there was a small clip showing Schwarzenegger under an avalanche and managing to get up uttering the words “arghh.. i must get up and get to the world stunt awards, afterall, i promised them, I’D BE BACK”. Most of the celebrities there had a lot of fun with the show and their own image.
Overall, the ceremony was great and should have not been missed by viewers. For full coverage and more information check out the official site for The 2007 Taurus World Stunt Awards
