It’s time to wrap up my ongoing series to recognize all of my friends who have been nominated for a prestigious Rondo Award. Today, we have not one but multiple nominees in several different categories.
First and foremost, we have the B-Movie Cast! Launched by the late and Rondo award-winning Vince Rotolo back in 2006, this podcast is closing in on episode 400! Mary, Nic and Juan are keeping the tradition alive and I know that Vince is tuning in every week as he smiles at the legacy he left behind. Vote for it in the Best Multi-Media Site category.
Next, there is Rod Barnett, one of the masterminds behind the Naschycast. Rod wrote an amazing article for issue 34 of Screem magazine on Paul Naschy. Add this issue to your collection and dive into the world of Paul Naschy. Vote for it in the Best Article category.
Dr. Gangrene is nominated in not one but two categories. He writes a regular column for Scary Monsters magazine called The Doctor is In-Sane (Best Columnist). When he’s not typing away on his laptop, he hosts a regular video series featuring the films we all love, not to mention his fantastic series on the films of Vincent Price (Favorite Horror Host of 2017).
Have you checked out George McGowan’s amazing Collecting Classic Monsters site? It’s the digital clubhouse for monster kids and collectors. You’ll spend hours looking at all of the monster goodness but make sure you vote for it in the Best Website or Blog of 2017 category.
Finally, Steve Vertlieb has written an article on legendary writer Robert Bloch for thethunderchild.com website. Steve recalls his 25-year friendship with him in Robert Bloch: The Clown at Midnight. Be sure to vote for Steve in the Best Article category.
The 16th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards ballot is now live and waiting for your votes. These awards are voted on by fans for fans and highlight the best of the best of 2017.
Voting is easy to do. Simply go to the Rondo Awards website and follow the instructions. It’s a little old school and there are a lot of categories, so make sure you take your time. You don’t have to vote in every category and you can always write in your own suggestion because they might have missed something or someone worth recognizing. Just remember, voting ends at midnight April 8!
