Collecting Classic Monsters Nominated for Best Blog & Website of 2016
For the past 15 years, the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards have honored the best in classic horror research, creativity and film preservation. The awards are the brainchild of David Colton, founder of the Classic Horror Film Board, and the spectacular sculpt of the iconic actor Rondo Hatton is by legendary artist Kerry Gammill.
I have voted in the Rondos for years and ! was completely shocked to see this little work of passion of mine nominated for the Best Website/Blog category this year — I don’t even know who nominated us, but I am so grateful. I found out about our nomination as I was reviewing the ballot over the weekend! It isn’t an exaggeration to say that I shouted in surprise when I saw our website included among the very best of the web! What an honor!

What are the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards?
Rondo Awards founder, David Colton, explains it best in a recent interview on Dr Gangrene’s Mad Mad Mad Blog:
The Rondo Awards are an effort to honor and recognize those people and projects that keep the classic horror genre alive and vibrant. It is not so much about ‘favorite actor’ or ‘favorite monster’ but about the latest scholarship in books and magazines, the fun and creativity in writing, art, music, special events and horror hosts like yourself, and in the efforts to preserve the classic films.
Every vote is our attempt to thank and recognize all the creative people — fans and pros alike — who work so hard, often without any pay at all — to keep the classic monster genre young and vital.
