Doogie had already won Kook of the Month for December 1998, and would go on to win many other awards.  Doogie Grant was so fond of practicing historical revisionism that an award for revisionism was created in his (dis)honor, The Douglas Grant Medal For Historical Revisionism.  Doogie was, of course, the first winner of this award.  The complete list of awards won by Douglas Grant:
