One vote is allowed per person. Every e-mail must include your name to be counted. All votes are kept strictly confidential. No e-mail addresses or any personal information will be shared.
Again, you do not have to vote in every category. NOTE: There are TWO features about DARK SHADOWS nominated for BEST INTERVIEW. Please pick one of them.
