The LAMB is bursting at the seams with activity – so much so that I had to inform a bunch of LAMBs-in-waiting that their wait might be a bit longer than the “3-21 days” I normally promise to get profiles up. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
LIONs for LAMBs
Ends 2/21! Get your votes in now or forever hold your peace! For those that had trouble remembering which poll they were voting in the last few times , I’ll reiterate: this is the one where you pick your best of 2009: Best/Worst Movies, Casts, Posters, Scenes, and more. Vote here!
LAMB Oscar Pool
It has begun! Show off your prognostication skills, earn bragging rights, and oh yeah – win some damn fine prizes, including but not limited to: a $25 AMC gift card, TDB Oscar schwag, a bloggy t-shirt, and if someone can manage to beat host Mikey Filmmaker’s record of 22 picks, a $100 in Fandango bucks! Better yet – it’s open to LAMBs and non-LAMBs alike, so spread the word! Details and submissions are here.
The LAMB Devours the Oscars
We’re about halfway through the massive event (the 16th of 33 posts goes up today), and it’s been pretty awesome thus far. If you’re new or have forgotten, here’s the quick skinny: for the past two years, we’ve had an event where a different LAMB wrote up an analysis of each award that the Academy would be handing out. There are 24 categories, but this year the field has been expanded in honor of the Academy’s expansion to 10 Best Picture nominees. If we split the category into 10, with one writer per film, that makes 10 Best Picture articles + 23 others. 33 Articles. 33 Days, starting on the day of the nominations and ending on the day before the show.
(By the way, if you’re one of the few who’ve yet to send me your assigned article, please do so ASAP. Thanks.)
Are you a Fan of the LAMB?
The LAMB was previously on Facebook, but it was in one of those icky “Groups” that no one seems hip to anymore. So it’s picked up and left for some shiny new digs – a Fan Page. Go there and get all Robert DeNiro (or Patton Oswalt, if that’s more your cup of tea) on the LAMB. Maybe make friends with some of your fellow LAMBs while you’re at it.
As usual, there’s a bunch of other stuff going on at the LAMB:
