It’s been an incredible week or so, here. And now there’s no ifs ands or buts left. FMR has just been awarded the Big Kahuna of the Lammys, Best Blog for 2013.
I understand that a lot of people would presume it was a foregone conclusion considering the run of success leading up to it, but in all honesty, I sweated it out to the very last second. I’m honored, grateful, stunned still, and relieved now… It’s amazing. I’m having trouble processing it.
I’m blown away by the success I’ve had this award season. It means a lot to me to see that so many people are willing to cast votes for me across the boards. I honestly had no idea I had that much support out there. THANK YOU ALL, IT’S AN INCREDIBLE HONOR!
I’m happy to put this behind us now, cause I’ve certainly been asking a lot of people these past couple of days. I know that all these posts have tested the bounds, but I think the Lammys are worth celebrating, and I just… didn’t expect to be celebrating so much! 8O Tomorrow we’ll resume our regularly scheduled content, honest.
The Lammy parade rolls on, here at FMR, and this time, it’s an award I coveted very much… the 2013 Lammy for Best Community Builder.
The reason I hold this one in such high esteem is that it’s easy to invert the title slightly and come away with “Best Community”. It only stands to reason that the Best Community Builder would have built the Best Community, no?
And I think the commenting community here IS the best. Second to none. Week in and week out, people share their thoughts and feelings on movies here in impressive numbers. There is some really high quality movie discussion going on, whether it’s after a review about a particular film, or in a Tossin’ It Out There, about a variety of movie related subjects. I’ve gotten to know many of you through this, and it’s been a been an absolute pleasure talking movies with you all. I owe you all for this one, whether you voted or not.
This is an award I’m proud to share with everyone, I’m so grateful that you all choose to discuss movies here so regularly!! *sniff* :cry:
The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs has been awarded the 2013 Lammy Award for Best Podcast!
On behalf of co-host Chris Tanski and myself, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who voted for us, we’re honored and grateful to receive this recognition! :D
I’d also like to extend congratulations to the MILFcast, this year’s runners-up. The voting was extremely close here, apparently only two votes separated the two shows! Definitely give them a listen, Kai and Heather are hysterical, it’s a great show!
This morning, the Large Association of Movie Blogs (The Lamb) released the official list of nominees for this year’s edition of their annual movie blogging awards: The Lammys. The LAMB is the premiere movie blogging community on the internet, boasting over 1,500 member blogs. The Lammys are, accordingly, one of the highest honors in movie blogging.
Fogs’ Movie Reviews has received nominations in nine separate categories: Most Knowledgeable, Best Blogathon, Best Convention Coverage, Best Podcast, Best Running Feature, Best Reviewer, Best Community Builder, Funniest Writer and Best Blog.
For the second year in a row, it’s the most nominations received by any blog (tied this year with The Cinematic Katzenjammer, which also received nine nominations).
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!
I wanted to take this opportunity to bring your attention to the fact that the nomination voting for the 2013 Lammys, the official awards of the Large Association of Movie Blogs, will be opening tomorrow. My blog was “submitted” in a number of categories, and I’d like to ask for nomination votes from those of you who belong to the LAMB.
Please take a moment and click through to read my appeal for your nominations!
The final of my “For Your Consideration” posts for the 2012 Lammys. I want to thank all of you for bearing with me through this process, I realize that this isn’t necessarily the kind of content you’re out to read each day…
But I know that these posts have been well received within the Lamb, and hopefully I’ve picked up a vote or two along the way.
All this week, I’ve been laying out the positive attributes of the entire field of nominees in every category I’ve been nominated in.
It’s unfortunate today that I have to shift gears and bring you the painful truth that… aside from myself… none of the other nominees in this category are funny at all.
I don’t know what to say. Perhaps it’s the preponderance of pensive pundits that populate the Lamb pen… but whatever it is, this is a droll, humorless bunch. The nominators really $#%&ed this one up.
In the past week or so, my “Unfunniest Lamb Study Commission” has uncovered the shocking truth. The inside story of the rampant bribery, vote tampering, gerrymandering and fraud that was perpetuated in the “Funniest Lamb” category that – aside from myself – resulted in five painfully unfunny blogs being nominated.
