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)!

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to those who cast nomination votes on my behalf. It’s humbling and gratifying to receive recognition in so many various categories. If you’ll click through, I break down my qualifications for each!
