Lammy for Best Classic Film Blog.
And to think, when I decided to join the cinema-blogosphere more than a year ago, I was considering a blog dedicated solely to Chinese zombie films. Lucky I went with a more obscure choice. Always follow your passion, readers; the results are lush and fruity.
Hopefully I will win my category, but this is unlikely. Partly because my dreams have a way of fizzling, like so many ballgames near-won by Charlie Brown. But mostly because the competition is strong--I'm particularly outclassed by Lolita's Classics, the proprietor of which can write better than moi in at least two languages, one of them my own. Fortunately, She Focuses Far Less On Silent Film Than I Do, so if you need silent film commentary at all times, you simply have to keep reading me.
Should I win, I will keep my acceptance speech to 10,000 words, single-spaced, rich text format. Should I lose, the speech will be no more than 12,000 words, to be delivered by my agent, as I get wasted, crash an after-party before the chairs are set up, phone an ex-wife, then throw up in a limo... ideally my own.
