If you guessed that this had something to do with the Stock Phrase, you're arguably correct. If you guessed that it has to do with the person using the Stock Phrase, nope! It's about a pre-emptive response by someone else to the person using the Stock Phrase.
Perhaps we could try something like Preemptive Winning Speech... only put a little more elegantly?
I can't think of a better name right now, but I don't like "preemptive winning speech." The person usually waits until the award is given, but they still go to the stage and accept it because they weren't listening. That isn't preemptive - that's post-emptive.
I might be reading too much into this, but one potential problem I see with Preemptive Winning Speech is that the character in question does not actually have to start giving an acceptance speech to fit this trope. For example, there are a few examples of people starting to get up or looking smug before the actual name of the winner is announced.
We could always make this trope more narrow to just be about preemptive winning speeches, but I think if we did that it would be a good idea to rewrite the description a bit and take out the examples which are not about actually giving speeches.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you. You need to Get Known to get one of those.
Alternative Titles: And The Winner Is

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
