Five days, 475 votes counted, and now we finally arrive at the big Drumroll Moment… Your 2012 Rorschach Award Winners are here! Before anything, I’d like to make a quick note of incredibly close most of these races stayed until the very end. I’m only going to announce the winners, but if you want to know how you did please feel free to ask me and I can either answer in the comments or email you privately :)
As a quick note, with two exceptions the lowest amount of votes anyone received for any category was 9, so while not everyone may get the title you are still absolutely not forgotten!
Congratulations to Aaron over at TCIZ, who tied Fernando Rafael from Committed to Celluloid for the most referrals :)
Congratulations to Tyson over at Head in a Vice for coming up with this really fun and segment that many of you have likely already taken part in. Tyson also recently moved ahead of an electoral dogfight between Fogs’ Movie Reviews’ Tossin’ it out There and Marked Movies’ Tuesday Trivia Tidbits.
Congratulations to Tyson over at Head in a Vice again for truly earning this award. Tyson started his blog around the same time I did (around six months ago) and through segments like Face-Off, Desert Island Movies and reviews for some of the best Horror films you’ve never seen, he has already established the sort of readership most of us are still trying to achieve.
Blogger of the Year:
Congratulations to Andy from Andy Watches Movies, who just barely eeked it out over Tyson from Head in a Vice. Andy, who also came in a close second for Best Networker, has been taking us along with him on his quest to watch and review 300 movies in 2012. Aside from sharing my name, Andy has covered a huge range of films as well as doing everything he can to involve his readership with segments like Friday Question Fun. If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to check his site out and root him on to that magical 300!
Well, there you have them folks, your 2012 winners. Once again, I’m extremely grateful for all of the reblogs and references you all gave to make this happen, and while I wasn’t able to recognize everyone I wanted to I still got the opportunity to meet a lot of new bloggers and I look forward to keeping up with each and every one.
You are completely free to use your “award picture” if you so desire, but with my rudimentary Microsoft paint skills I absolutely do not expect you to, lol. Also feel free to give an Acceptance Speech in the comments, I promise you that nobody will music you off the stage :D
