Published: Wednesday, February 24th, 2016
The Reel Awards™ were conceived in 1989 by Janna Joos of International Celebrity Images & Alana Joos of Entertainment Express. They came up with the idea of an Awards Show for celebrity impersonators and look-alikes as a way of acknowledging their professional performances in the entertainment industry, as well as encouraging up and coming new talent.
