We are extremely honored to have been written in and nominated for a few different Rondo Awards for 2009. How cool is that? CollectoramaShow.com, which is one of the best collectibles websites out there, nominated us for three different categories. They're numbered as they are on the ballot. All you have to do is send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the below info pasted into it. You don't have to vote for everything on the ballot. Just what you want to. Here you go:

If you want to vote for everything, then please click on the banner after the jump. We're honored to be appreciated for all our hard work.
Our sister blog, www.amicusproductions.blogspot.com, was nominated in the category of Monster Kid of the Year. I (Eric Shirey) actually do that blog as well. It is basically the ONLY website completely dedicated to the classic Amicus Productions films. We also cover the new Amicus movies. If you want to vote for me as Monster Kid of the Year for that, then that would be awesome. It's number 29 on the Rondo ballot.
About The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards:
The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards were created by David Colton and Kerry Gammill at the Classic Horror Film Boards in 2002. The awards are fan-based, and have no connection to any commercial sponsor. Anyone in fandom can vote or propose nominees.
The 'Rondo' award itself, shown at right, features a bust sculpted by illustrator Kerry Gammill, and cast by modeler Tim Lindsey.
The statuette is a miniature version of the bust of Hatton seen in the Universal film, HOUSE OF HORRORS (1946). The Rondos have been praised by recipients for their quiet beauty and evocation of classic horror.
Nominees for the Rondo are selected from suggestions by horror fans, pros and enthusiasts offered all year at the CHFB. Each year's nominees are finalized by classic horror fan David Colton (email@example.com), with the help of more than 20 classic horror fans from around the world, and with expertise in all parts of fandom.
Each year, nominees for Best Model or Collectible are developed with the help of the Universal Monster Army! Thanks, UMA!
