Shameless: 2012 Lammy FYC

It is that time of year. The Lammys have begun!

I know I haven't been writing as much since last year's awards, and for that, I have no real excuse. Work really piled up for this year, and I had some trouble motivating myself to write things when I did find some free time.

That being said, I do believe that what I wrote was universally excellent, and award worthy.

So, with that, I'd like to offer my two cents on some things I think y'all should be aware of.

Best Blog: I have no expectations when it comes to this award. Just to be nominated would be a victory in my eyes.

Best Blog Name: Well, this award doesn't exist anymore, but I just like to point it out. It has a nice ring to it, yes?

Best Reviewer: I'll let the reviews speak for themselves. The Avengers, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Sucker Punch

Funniest Writer: I mean, I think I'm funny.

Best Ratings System: See that sexy sidebar over there.

Best Festival Coverage: This is the big one. It's the only award in which I have any hope of winning. I'm am extremely proud of the Sundance coverage I provided this year. It was a fantastic experience, I saw a crap ton of eclectic movies, and I really hope I can go back. And like a certain, far more talented LAMB, I had a surreal moment with a certain actor that I really dig.

Best Blog-A-Thon: It's not really a Blog-A-Thon, but I'm still pretty proud of my 10 day retrospect of all things 2011.

What I'm saying here is not meant to sway you in any way. More than anything, I want you to vote for the sites you think are most deserving. There are so many blogs out there, that, like I said, even to be nominated is a victory for me. I hope you consider me when you cast your nominations. Cheers all. Happy Lammys.
