No offense to anyone (who am I kidding) – but to be blunt – screw the Oscars. Screw the Academy Awards. Screw the Grammys. Best award of all time? The Rondo.
That’s right! It’s that time of the year again!
If you’re not hip to the Rondo’s, here’s the run down. The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards have been presented each year since 2003 by the Classic Horror Film Board to honor all things horror – television, film, art, blogging, etc.
These awards rely on votes of the public – so it’s the epitome of “readers choice“. The physical award is an homage to the Creeper – played by Rondo Hatton in the 1946 House of Horrors (a Universal Classic).
Big names this year include Piranha 3D, Let Me In, The Wolfman, The Walking Dead, True Blood, King Kong, Metropolis, The Art of Hammer, Ingrid Pitt, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Rue Morgue, Cinema Suicide, Spooky Empire, Monster-Mania, and many more.
So do horror a favor and go cast your vote here.
