The voting for the 9th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards ended last night at midnight.
Thanks to those of you who voted for The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan (Best Book) and Monster Island News (Best Blog).
David Colton, the Rondo's man-in-charge, posted the following at the Classic Horror Film Board (CHFB) forum:
The voting is over.
More than 2,900 people voted this year, about the same as the last two years, in the NINTH ANNUAL RONDO HATTO CLASSIC HORROR AWARDS. Thanks to everyone, whether you voted in one category or many.
Tallying the final results -- I still need to collate it all -- will take a little time, as will uploading photos and images, so the plan is:
-- As is tradition, CHFB members will be the first to know as the results are revealed, category by category, in a live chat in the Blind Hermit's Hut here at the CHFB. Time: 10 p.m. ET, Wednesday night.
-- An hour later, at 11 p.m. ET Wednesday night, full results and press release will be posted here and at rondoaward.com.
-- We hope to giive out a few statuettes at Monsterpalooza in two weeks, but the bulk will be awarded at WonderFest during the annual Rondo Awards Ceremony in Louisville on May 15 (5 p.m.).
Some winners are obvious, but other contests are so close I still won't know who won until I add up the various count sheets. So even I may be surprised.
Again, thanks to all and be here Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET for the exciting reveal!
Check the links (above) Wednesday night to see who the winners are!
