For Your Consideration: Best Reviewer

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.

The final category I present for your consideration is “Best Reviewer”, a category which I’ve been nominated in along with five other bloggers. Sam Fragoso of Duke & the Movies, Ryan McNeil of The Matinee, Andy Buckle of The Film Emporium, Dan O’Neill of Dan the Man’s Movie Reviews, and James Blake Ewing of Cinema Sights.

I’ve included links to a sampling of each nominee’s work, so that you can get a feeling for their style!

For Your Consideration: Best Blog

Best Blog.

The Big Kahuna.

Seriously, just to be mentioned in this category is kind of mind blowing.

The title is self-explanatory, this is the big cheese right here. To be nominated in the same company as these blogs in my first year is an overwhelming honor. They are: Flixchatter, The Droid You’re Looking For, Anomalous Material, Man, I Love Films, The Matinee and Cinematic Paradox.

For Your Consideration: Funniest Lamb

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.

Read on.

For Your Consideration: Best Running Feature

Continuing my series of posts related to the 2012 Lammys, today we have the category of “Best Running Feature”, a category that I received a nomination in for my series “Movies That Everyone Should See”.

I’m really, really honored to be nominated here, as this series is my pride and joy.

I’m definitely up against some stiff competition though, with a field that includes Duke and the Movies, Rachel’s Reel Reviews, True Classics, and Cinematic Paradox.

As planned for each post in this series, I’m going to highlight what each of the nominees in the field have going on, and explain why you should consider me with your vote. Hopefully this will be enlightening for Lammy voters, no matter which way they decide, and for non-Lammies, hopefully this will help you follow along with the action as we go through these next couple of weeks!

For Your Consideration: Best Community Builder

Normally on Fridays, I like to run my “Follow Fridays” series, where I recommend another movie blog and try to briefly explain why they’re worth checking out. It’s one of the ways that I try to connect everyone, and also a way to try to support other blogger’s efforts.

So I thought today would be a good day to launch my Lammy campaigning, and lead with the category “Best Community Builder / Networking Lamb”. It kind of ties in neatly to what I’d be doing today anyways.

I think everyone here knows that here at FMR we have a great movie discussion/commenting community, but you might not all be familiar with all of the other candidates. This post will give me an opportunity to highlight the other nominees, which will be good for our Non-Lammie readers and help our eligible voter friends have a look at the category and make an informed decision…

For FMR, of course! :D Read on!
