The nominees for the 8th annual Rondo Hatton Awards have been announced, and we here at Dread Central are beyond honored to be included in the Best Website (online magazine, message board, or tribute site) category, and our own Joe Moe has been nominated for best fan event with his Tribute to Forrest J Ackerman! Pretty sweet!
Nominees for the Rondo Awards are selected from suggestions by horror fans, pros, and enthusiasts offered all year at the Classic Horror Film Board. Each year’s nominees are finalized by classic horror fan David Colton with the help of more than 20 classic horror fans from around the world and with expertise in all parts of fandom.
With 30 categories ranging from Best Movie of 2009, Best Television Presentation, Best Classic DVD and DVD Collection, Best DVD TV Collection, Best Restoration, Best DVD Extra, Best Book of 2009, Best Convention or Film Festival of 2009, and even Controversy of the Year (just to name a few), the Rondos are all-encompassing and well deserving of the attention and respect they receive.
