But there's a great reason.
Two of the three Rondo Award nominees I was voting for won their category, and a third made a close runner up!
Raise glasses, all...
I wish to congratulate the Frankensteinia blog for its Best Blog award! It was the one I felt was most deserving, and it is gratifying to think so many horror fans felt the same way. A fine blog and a fine award, Pierre!
Also, a big congratulations to another personal favorite: the wonderful Aurora Monsters: The Model Craze That Gripped The World won for Best Independent or Documentary Film! Way to go Bill, Cortlandt and most of all the Cool Ghoul himself, Zacherley! Such a fun DVD, go get it!
Alas, it was not a true sweep for my voting block. Monsterverse's unique Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave made for a very close runner-up in the Best Horror Comic category, but was just shy of the mark. Here at the S&P, though, it's been a real winner since it was published in November 2010. I cannot wait to see the next issue! Congrats to Sam, Kerry and the gang at Monsterverse!
Everyone -- a toast to the winners, and best of luck in the future... for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives!
