The CHS gets a Rondo nomination for BEST BLOG

The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards posted the ballots earlier this week for its 2013 nominees, and The Collinsport Historical Society was among the sites under consideration for BEST BLOG.

As usual, it's a pretty interesting list of nominees. Curiously, The Collinsport Historical Society is the only DARK SHADOWS item nominated this year. Granted, there was a flurry of news coming out of Collinwood in 2012 thanks to interest spurred by the Tim Burton film, so it's not unusual that fewer items were available for consideration a year later. Even so, I'm surprised that BIG FINISH isn't represented somewhere on the list. They did great work in 2013.

Peripherally related to DARK SHADOWS, though, is Ansel Faraj's feature DOCTOR MABUSE. The movie stars DARK SHADOWS alumni Jerry Lacy, Kathryn Leigh Scott and Lara Parker. It's been nominated for BEST INDEPENDENT FEATURE FILM.

In my opinion, we did a lot of good work on this site during the last year. Not only did the podcast evolve into a more polished product, we even added a second series to our roster with DAY DRINKING. The Collinsport Historical Society even published it's first book, which appears to have been enjoyed by all eight of you who've purchased it.

In all, there are 35 different categories in which to vote. BEST BLOG is #19 on the ballot, while BEST INDEPENDENT FILM is #9.
