2009 Reaper Awards Round-Up

Reaper Awards 2009 (click for larger image)So they’ve finally come to pass. Last night the first annual Reaper Awards were held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Cali, and the response was just amazing. So without further ado let’s play a little catch-up of what you missed, shall we?

Being that I hold down the lion’s share of the news writing duties here at Dread Central and gave my staff at the event the night off so they could have fun, we’re going to forgo writing a wrap-up. Besides, I’m way too close to it to even dream of doing so. So instead, I’m going to point you guys to some sites that have pretty primo coverage and let everyone else speak for the event itself.

Before I do so, however, I want to take a moment to thank everyone in attendance, everyone who voted, everyone who sponsored the event, and everyone who contributed even the smallest of things to make this happening the — from what I am told — success that it was. You guys all rock!

A special thank you goes out to our partners in this endeavor, Home Media Magazine, especially publisher T.K. Arnold and my partner in crime Kyra Kudick. Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!

We’ll be having some exclusive stuff from the show here for you as well including video packages and the hilarious pre-recorded acceptance speech of the first ever winner of the Reaper Award (or Grimmy) for Lifetime Achievement, Michael Felsher of Red Shirt Pictures. Stay tuned for the goods!
