The 2012 LAMB Nominations

When I joined the Large Association of Movie Blogs last year, I was incredibly late to the game for the annual Lammie awards. Besides the fact that I only knew possibly two bloggers at the time, it took me a while to learn that this wonderful coterie had accepted me. Once that realization was made, the selecting of nominees had already been underway.

This year, however, I’m throwing Duke & The Movies and myself into the running.

After hosting four successful Lammie awards, 2012 marks the fifth year anniversary of this rapidly growing feature.

All of the regulations, deadlines, requirements, and categories can be found in an extensive post over at the LAMB here.

But two crucial aspects I’ll emphasize: First, you must be a LAMB member to participate and vote. And secondly, you have till May 27th to cast your nominations.

Yesterday I was the first person to publish my ballot. I won’t expound upon my selections at this time. Rest assured my picks were diverse. Right Joel Burman?

I hope all of you who read Duke & The Movies consider me in your nomination process. I genuinely appreciate all of those who take the time to support.

Below is a “For Your Consideration” banner by John LaRue of The Droid You’re Looking For. If you desire to cast your ballot now, just click the artwork and it will direct you to the poll.

    You’re eligible for Best New LAMB??

  2. Sam Fragoso on May 9, 2012 8:21 am

    Well that’s being worked out now my friend. It’s up Joel and company. Long back story behind it.

    I see. Btw, I’m surprised you didn’t include “Best Blog” in your FYC.

  4. Sam Fragoso on May 9, 2012 9:51 am

    That’s very kind of you. If I can’t run for the new Lamb, I’ll be sure to add it.

    Thanks for support.

    So Squasher, I’m actually not eligible for best new LAMB. Have inserted your suggestion in place of it though.

    You’re a frontrunner for Best Reviewer for me, and I’m also glad that you submitted Battle of the Directors. It’s always fun even when I’ve only seen one or two of their films!

  10. Alex Withrow on May 10, 2012 7:34 am

    You got a handful of noms from me. Best of luck to you, Sam.

  11. Joel Burman on May 10, 2012 11:39 am

    Thanks for plugging the LAMMY’s Sam!

  12. Fitz on May 10, 2012 11:49 am

    Best of luck, Sam. I’m sure you’ll come out with a few nomination come award time.

  13. Sam Fragoso on May 10, 2012 11:50 am

    You all are incredibly kind. Thank you.

  14. ruth on May 10, 2012 6:25 pm

    All right Sam! Hope you are eligible for Best New Lamb. Best of luck!

  15. Sam Fragoso on May 10, 2012 10:08 pm

    I’m not eligible. The banner should be fixed now. But thank you of thinking of me!

  16. Sam Fragoso on May 10, 2012 10:15 pm
