Well it’s good to know that people didn’t participate in the LION Awards
or LAMB Devours the Oscars
due to forgetting. The majority of poll participants say they did participate in LIONs and Devours. A tie for second place were the new LAMBs who weren’t around during the features and the folks who didn’t see enough films to participate. It’s good to know that only four LAMBs claimed no interest at all.
As for the format of the LIONs, it seems the majority prefers voting for their top 5 in each category. That’s cool. Extra math for me, but the results feel more thorough.
Now it’s time to start talking LAMMY Awards! (Click here
if you have no idea what a “LAMMY Award” is.) The following are last year’s categories:
Best Blog Name
Best Random LAMB Banner
Best Overall Post
Best Horror/Sci-Fi Blog
Best Classic Film Blog
Best Festival/Awards Coverage
Best New LAMB (starting with LAMB #517)
Best Movie Reviewer
The first poll will ask which category you want to go. The one (maybe two) with the most votes will not be in this year’s awards.
Here are previous awards that have been retired (links to ones that may need further explanation):
Best Ratings System
Most Likely to Get Paid
Best Use of Widgetology
Best Running Feature
Best Impression of JD Salinger
Best Impression of Bob Dylan
Best Use of Technology (Alternative Media)
The second poll wants to know if any of these need to come out of retirement to replace whatever current category(ies) is ousted. If you choose “Other” please comment or email
me with suggestions. I’ll leave the polls up for a couple of weeks and once we have the results the nomination process will begin.
The LAMMYs belong to all of us so please decide what categories are worthy of your votes!
