BT's hot favourite to pick up an industry award tonight at the event dubbed the "Internet Oscars".

Unfortunately for the monster telco, the accolade is something the execs might not want to put on their mantelpiece.

For tonight, the Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) announces who has won the "Internet Villain" award - and all the clever money says BT will romp home.

El Reg understands that someone from BT will be there to pick up the award if it wins. And the scribes at BT have also written an acceptance speech just in case.

Of course, BT was nearly out of the running for the award because, as the original sponsor, it could not also be nominated. However, due to pressure from ISPA members BT withdrew its sponsorship and was, therefore, allowed to be nominated.

David "Harry Potter" Edmonds, headboy of the winged watchdog and Home Secretary, Jack Straw, are also up for the "Internet Villain" award. ®
