In December, the real committee submits two more nominations and this is crunch time. It’s the committee’s last chance to nominate titles (unless things come out later in the year) and each member’s last chance to ensure that their choices are on the table for discussion.
Here at Heavy Medal we did nominations in October and those results are here. We also collected your nominations in November and those results are here. Now is your last chance to add your voice and nominate two final titles for consideration. We will look at all of these nominations when we create our long list which we will then use for voting!
Please comment with your final two nominations and we’ll see what happens! Lend your support to previously nominated titles, or get a favorite on the list that hasn’t shown up yet!
As for me – I’m going to nominate THE 57 BUS and ORPHAN ISLAND. The 57 Bus is a longshot that I’d like to see discussed, and Orphan Island I think has gotten a bit lost in the shuffle because so many people reacted poorly to the plot. I think it is worth an in depth discussion, and just want to add a nomination.
What would you like to nominate? We’ll be announcing our long list on December 22nd, so get your nominations in quickly so we have time to consider them! Can’t wait to read what you all have to say.
