Voting and eligibility is open to current LAMBs only (#1 – 900). One ballot per site; if your site has multiple contributors, you need to consolidate and submit as one ballot. I currently have about 30 more profiles in the queue, and I would love to have them all be eligible, but it may be up to a month before they’re all posted, and I think it’s unfair to include them for this year’s contest. Please visit the Sortable LAMB Table and the LAMB Scrollbox (you’ll likely need them). They should both be fully updated within the next couple of days. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Click on the link at the bottom of this post and nominate up to three LAMBs for each award (no ranking necessary), save for Best Blog, where you may nominate up to five sites. There are two sites that you are not allowed to vote for: your own site and the LAMB– votes for either will be discarded. Shortly after the nomination period has closed, I will post a list of the nominees. The final round of voting will then take place for another two week period.
- Winners of each category will be eligible to place a banner such as one of the banners below on their sites with the name of what category in which they won, originally created by the LAMMYS “sponsor” RIPE Creative – aka Mrs. Fletch’s company. (Banners and code will be emailed to the winners). Additionally, all nominees will receive a banner as well, noting how many noms they got.
The self-explanatory big kahuna.
Which site looks the best? This could be one that’s built from scratch or expanded from a template.
Best Blog Name
“Things To Do In Denver While You’re Blogging.” Another self-explanatory award.
Who makes you wonder how they sleep at night? Time to let them know their never-ending quest is worthwhile.
So addictive you just couldn’t help but take part. So brilliant, so viral that it took over the internet (or maybe just a bunch of film blogs).
Who’s the next Richard Pryor? Or Carrot Top, even?
Best Running Feature
Do you find yourself constantly checking your watch, just waiting for the end of the week to arrive so you can check out the latest Friday’s Favorite Film Freaks on your favorite blog? What regular running features can’t you live without?
Best Ratings System
Some bloggers put a nice spin on the old 5-star system while others come up with something completely different. Which ones do you love to see at the end of a review?
Best Horror/Sci-Fi Blog
Best Classic Film Blog
Best Festival/Awards Coverage
Not all do it, but some dedicate months at a time to a festival or the Academy Awards. This is a chance to honor them.
Best New LAMB
A special award for any LAMB that’s been welcomed to the flock since last year’s LAMMYs. Sites eligible are #517-900.
Many LAMBs produce their own podcast, individually or jointly with other LAMBs; which are your favorites? (The LAMBcast is ineligible.)
Best Movie Reviewer
Maybe they just happen to always agree with you. Maybe they write in a way you only wish you could. Maybe you’re in awe of the wide array of films they review. Basically, if you had but a few whose reviews you could read, who would they be?
The All-important Link
Though it may take awhile depending on your familiarity, please take the time to visit as many of the LAMBs as you can to give a fair and accurate judging. Use the handy LAMB Scrollbox to visit them all, use a feed reader, or, again, check the soon-to-be-updated Sortable LAMB Table. Also, For Your Consideration posters will be posted for all who wish to send them in (limit one per site). Email your FYC Posters here. Here’s an example:
On the poll, I’ll have a question or two about feedback and any suggestions for the 2012 LAMMYS. Please give your thoughts – what’s missing, different and/or better categories, the voting/nomination process, prizes, etc. Any questions or feedback about the process can be emailed to me or left in the comments below.
Most important – have fun and good luck to you all!
