Today is the day! The nominees have been presented, the votes have been tallied, and today begins the final stage of the Inaugural Silmarillion Awards! Each of the marvelous bloggers who have been participating in this epic fantasy oscars-like event will be presenting one of the Silmarils to a worthy winner, chosen by YOU, dear Reader!
Even we do not know who has won in every category (and as I type this, I do not yet know who won in my own category) as we decided at the last minute that would add to the fun, so I am as excited as you to find out who the winners are. Each one of the bloggers will be having a “guest” from Middle Earth on his or her blog to help present the awards, which will hopefully be a lot of fun.
Don’t forget that on July 29th we’re having a huge online-party-celebration for the Lord of the Rings’ 62nd Birthday! I will try to have a link-up here so you can share your blog posts if you decide to join in the party that way, but you can also post to facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube, or wherever! I’d love to see those posts, as well, and will try to catch as many as I can (though I plan to be doing a lot of driving on the 29th, so I may have to play catch-up a bit when I get home).
Here is the schedule for the award presentations! (I will come back periodically to update these with the links to the indivdual posts)
Fri. July 29 – TOLKIEN PARTY! Happy Birthday, Lord of the Rings!
