I am proud and humbled to announce that “Bill Watches Movies” has again been nominated for a Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award in the category of Best Multimedia Site (Podcast).
In this, our second year of existence, you, the listeners and fans, have seen fit to nominate the show for Best Podcast, and for that I am grateful.
We are now two for two when it comes to both eligibility and nominations!
What The Heck Is A Rondo?
Even though some folks may not have heard of it The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award (or, “The Rondo”), named after famed horror actor Rondo Hatton, who is buried about a half an hour away from my house, in an American Legion cemetery, is quite a prestigious award.
It’s been around since 2002, and is considered “The Oscar” for Classic Horror film.
It’s as easy as cutting and pasting and sending an email!
Here’s a copy of the ballot over on the Classic Horror Film Boards, a place that you should TOTALLY TOTALLY be hanging out at if you love old monster movies, and pretty much any other genre of movies as well.
Why Should I Care About The Rondos?
Whether you vote or not, whether you vote for my show or not, I always encourage classic horror and science fiction fans to look at the ballot just to find out new and groovy things to watch, to read, to listen to, and to appreciate.
There are some amazing podcasts to listen to, some wonderful movies being remastered and re-released and some brilliant new books and magazines being put out every week in the classic horror and science fiction categories, and the Rondo ballot lists the best of the best.
I encourage you to look at the ballot with a pen and paper by your side, because you will be taking notes!
If I win, I promise to let it go to my head, become a dilettante and/or egomaniac and just generally really be full of myself for a day or two, and then I will come back to earth and get back to doing the work that I love, putting out the shows that make your day just a bit brighter.
Thank you again for the nomination, for your vote should you see fit, and most importantly, being a Gentle Listener.
