after 3 months, on 16th December 2010, it was official that the Nomination was finalized. from what i understand, n probably assumed, "animation" meant anime (japanese animation) or any production such as what was often seen by Pixar Studios. but according to the judges, it was mostly just movies that they considered, while anime served solely as a boost.
together with another nominated blog - Cinemarvellou (a movie blog), we managed to be the top 2 blogs in their list. n from the conversations of the judges (below), we ended up sharing instead of competing for the award - 2010 Best Animation Movie Blog.
Dempsey: Now Kerry, how about you and your search for best Animation Blog?
Kerry: Demps, I'm so sorry but I couldn’t decide, there were two and I just can't pick my favourite, so I didn't .
Dempsey: What! You can only have one!, I knew I should of gone for another male judge! Who are they?
Kerry: Cinemarvellous, for his exceptional reviews on many animation movies, and Levian Blog for her amazing devotion toward the animation art form, including animation movie and cartoon reviews. I'm sorry but they are both brilliant for different reasons and I would not like to decide. (Folds her arms and looks at the floor!)
Dempsey: Tut, well I have no choice do I? So I will have to decide for myself! The WINNER of TheMovie411 Best Animation Blog 2010 is.. Cinemarvellous.. AND.. Levian Blog.. All's fair in love and war, so congratulations you are both our duel winners for this award.
