Rondo Award Nominations Abound!

Honored to Be Nominated for Best Website!

Since 2002, the Rondo’s have been fandom’s only classic horror awards — decided by fans, for fans. Every nominee is considered for significant work or achievement made in the year 2017.

I’m honored to be nominated for the second year in a row in Category 17: Best Website or Blog.  I humbly ask for your vote.

In addition, I had the honor of being Executive Producer of Christopher R Mihm’s 2017 film, Demon with the Atomic Brain, which is nominated for Category 8: Best Independent Film of 2017.

And of course, I was thrilled to begin a new column in Scary Monsters magazine, which is nominated for Category 12: Best Magazine along with Category 16: Best Cover

I also had the privilege of being a guest on Cult Radio A Go-Go!  whose hosts Terry and Tiffany DuFoe are nominated for Category 14: Best Interview for their Videoscope magazine interview of Adrienne Barbeau.

And,  of course, Derek M Koch‘s essential podcast Monster Kid Radio which I joined him for an episode to chat about my favorite 50s monster movie, The Blob, is nominated again for Category 18. BEST MULTI-MEDIA HORROR SITE.

(News) We’re Nominated for Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards

Collecting Classic Monsters Nominated for    Best Blog & Website of 2016

Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards

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 I 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!

See the full ballot here.

What are the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards?

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.
