Fogs’ Movie Reviews has won the 2013 Lammy Award for Best Convention Coverage!

Lammy-111Just a quick post to let everyone know that FMR has won the 2013 Lammy Award for Best Convention Coverage. :D

Last year I attended San Diego Comic-Con and kept the readers here up to date with several posts a day worth of pictures and recaps, trying to capture the spirit of the event. I also live-tweeted as well as my phone reception would allow! Now all of that hard work has paid off! :D

I thought I’d let everyone know, and publicly thank everyone who cast a vote for me. The results were, again, very close. Only four votes separated FMR from Runner-Up Bonjour Tristesse. So to everyone who voted for FMR, an enormous thank you!!

Congratulations to Bonjour Tristesse, and also to French Toast Sunday, Big Thoughts From a Small Mind, and The Film Emporium! Thanks also to Andrew and Sara from Two Tickets For… , who did the presentation video (below)!

  1. Congratulations on the Lammy win. Definitely not getting shut out this year. Of course you realize this means you’re going to have to step up your convention coverage even more this year. :D

    • Well… LOL. It sucks but, I dont think there’s going to BE any Convention Coverage this year. :( I got blanked for tickets. Shut out!

      So… I dont think I’ll be able to mount a defense for this one in 2014. :(

      It’s all good though, happy to get recognized for the labor from last year. That was some crazy stuff, glad to see it was well thought of!

      • That stinks. :( I remember that now… all the trouble you and others had with SDCC’s ticketing system. It seems like they’d have it better organized by this point.

      • You know, I’m not sure if it’s TROUBLE per se, or if they just dont know how to politely tell people how screwed they are LOL So they hang the page up instead. I dont know. But yeah… first time in four tries that I didnt score tics. :( Ah well #FirstWorldProblems

  2. I knew it. I told ya. Your coverage was Pro! Vegas needs to get in on this so I can put some money down. I know 4 votes doesn’t sound like a big gap, but last year there were ties and you were shut out a couple times by one vote. Anywho, Congrats!

    • Ha! :D Good times. I was loaded down with a huge backpack, a phone, and a camera. It was worth it though. My Expendables 2 video has 130,000 hits on YouTube, I got a Lammy… good times, good times. It was all worth it! :D

  3. Congrats again! Just think, there’s only 8 more categories left to present, and you’re up for 7 of them. I’ll say it again, I’m just glad you’re not up for my category as well!

    • LOL. :D

      Meanwhile, I swear it felt all week as if they were avoiding the categories I was in! I’d see a new one be posted and was like AHHHHHRGH!! LOL But you’re right, from here on out, theyre all pertinent, so… lets see. Hopefully the next few days are full of good news! :D

      • *rolling around laughing to this imagery* here’s a vlog I’d enjoyed watching. Seeing Foagies reaction to the different LAMMY announcements. :)

      • LOL. I should have thought of that! With 9 different announcements, I would have had enough material to make a video that went on a minute or so at least. :D That would have been funny, indeed.

  4. Well done, mon ami! Soon you’ll be big enough that the pronunciation won’t be mistaken. (Sorry, I couldn’t let that go with all the times I had to correct Justin on the show)

    • LOL. Heh. :D

      That’s all on me. Its my fault. I was saying on Twitter right after I watched it, I have to change the site name or something. Its not pronounced like it looks, so I cant blame anyone. Thats on me. ;)

      Anyways, thank you kind sir. I wont let it bother me. :D

  5. I think it’s the first win that I voted for, but I lost track of winners. Congrats, well deserved – I loved reading your Comic Con posts!

    • Let’s hope, Ray, let’s hope. 6 more left… this morning I came in Runner Up on Best Blogathon. That’s still a lot of chances to win, though !:D

      Thanks again, buddy, nice of you to say. :D
