The Rorschach Awards: Your Winners for 2012!

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!

DESERT ISLAND FILMS – HEAD IN A VICE

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.

Best Networker:

HEAD IN A VICE

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.

And finally…

Blogger of the Year:

ANDY WATCHES MOVIES

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

  1. That looks like a great group of winners right there.

  2. I am totally blown away by this! Stiff competition in every category, it was hard for me to choose. Seriously, I cannot thank everyone for the acknowledgement and support, not just for the awards but in general.
    I will give a formal thanks in a bit when I post about this on my site! Also, thanks to Andy for hosting and nominating me!

    This is bull shit!! I demand a re-count. 1 vote!!?? :)

    Thank you for running this Andy, been great fun and was nice just to even be nominated alongside these other amazing bloggers. I am delighted with my 2 wins and 1 runner up (seriously, 1 vote, Andy Watches Movies must of been greasing some palms……..) ;) Congrats to everyone involved, and its been nice to find some new blogs to follow.

    I will not be sending an American Indian woman to reject these awards on this occasion Brando style, so humbly accept. Cheers everyone :)

    Congrats to all. Can’t believe I was beaten by such sub-standard blogs ;-)

    This is insane! Thank you so much for nominating me, and crazy thanks to everyone who voted! I’m going to post a big blubbing entry on Movie Writing that’ll rival any Oscars speech, but just wanted to comment here to say thank you.

    Well done to everyone who was nominated and won awards!
