Last Sunday, the Golden Globes aired on television! Several deserving nominees won the “pre-Oscar” award, and all the glitz and glamour of the evening made for a fun watch! (To see all of the winners, check out yesterday’s post HERE).
Award season is always fun! But sometimes, certain films/directors/actors don’t get the recognition I feel they may deserve. (Leaving me feeling as impressed as Tommy Lee Jones was this past Sunday at the Golden Globes.)
This prestigous award, entitled The RED WEB AWARD, takes over your regular “Time to Vote Tuesday” segment and gives way to pay homage to the dedication, cinematic success, inspiration, and amazement of the nominees. (In case you didn’t know, it’s called the “red web” because I’m a pretty big Spiderman fan.)
Each award ceremony to date has been a pretty big success (1st year, 2nd year) and I always look forward to the fun. (Last year Stan Lee was gracious enough to host the award-results ceremony! Check out his promo pic:
Wait ’til you see who will host THIS year’s Award-Results Ceremony (Here on Sunday, January 20th)! Don’t miss it.
Here’s How It Works:
A panel of 12 judges has been assembled. (Made up of 8 fantastic movie bloggers, 3 great friends/contributors of the site, and myself). Each judge submitted their nominees for the award categories that you will be voting on. Meet your panel of nominating judges that added their nominations for this year’s RED WEB AWARD categories:
All 12 of us nominated possible winners for 8 categories and we need your help to choose!
Below you will find 8 polls. Please do the following:
- Think carefully about the performances of the nominees per category.
- Vote for the TWO (2) nominees per poll that you think should win The RED WEB AWARD in its respective category.
- After voting, please..***pass this along to a friend via facebook, twitter, stumbleupon, wordpress, blogspot, text message, snail mail, pony express, passenger pigeon, etc. (There are “share” links at the bottom of this post).
- Leave a comment, if you wish, spreading your own propagandish reasons as to why you think a certain nominee should win.
- Keep checking back, the polls will be open until Saturday night. You can vote up until then. Results will post at the RED WEB AWARDS CEREMONY on Sunday, January 20!
- Didn’t see your favorite on the list? Use the comment section to list your Honorable Mentions!
(In the actual Golden Globes there are over 20 categories. I had to narrow it down as best as I could. While some categories I would love to have included, the 8 below were my final choices.)
-This year there is a special category entitled “The Silver Screen Surprise Award.” This award is for the film that most surprised you this year, either for being BAD or being GOOD. (most nominees are listed for being surprisingly good as according to your judge panel)
Are you ready? We need as many votes as possible!
So, BEHOLD, Without further ado, I present to you now this year’s 3rd Annual RED WEB AWARDS!
