Popular demand (well, two people and no arguments to the contrary) I shall once again be organising the Spill Awards, in which we get to demonstrate the range and eclectic nature of our taste even more than usual, and then end up giving awards to the same predicatble middle-of-the-road acts as everyone else because they’re the only ones that more than three of us can agree on… Because I’m horrendously busy at the moment, the awards themselves are likely to be in early January, but we need to open the nomination process so that the voting process can start in mid-December; don’t worry, it’ll all make some sort of sense in due course.
Please send an email to abahachi(a)hotmail.co.uk, listing your nominations for Album of the Year, Film of the Year, TV Programme or Series of the Year, Hero of the Year, Villain of the Year and Event of the Year. You can make as many suggestions as you want at this stage, as it increases the chances of putting together a shortlist with at least some level of support; you’re also welcome to write comments on any of your nominations, as I can then merrily plagiarise these at a later date. Please DON’T put nominations down in the comments, as that spoils the fun. If you could do this by Friday 13th December, I can sort out the voting process that weekend.
I have been wondering how to organise this year’s ceremony: another live blog would be a possibility, but in the interests of always moving forward and trying something new, are enough of us on Twitter that we could do the whole thing over there? We can discuss this in the comments.
