And the Winners Were...

In case you missed it, tonight we announced the winners for this year's Shorty Awards. And, if you were there, you know that we had a slew of technical difficulties. For instance, we had three winners and one movie to show. But that's okay! That's okay because they're all online and available to watch at last! Isn't that just fantastic? We know, we know, calm down now.
So, in case you missed it, or didn't see the movies, here were the winners:

Under 17 - Steve Kirby for "It Came from the Fridge"

Over 17 - Ken Schutter for "Once Upon a Blob"

Fan Favorite Award - Mark Mihalko for "It Lives Somewhere in Jersey"

Thanks to all who voted and congratulations to those who won! We apologize if your movie didn't win or wasn't shown tonight. There were a few last-minute difficulties that occurred but it sure won't happen next year.
In all, we had a good year and we enjoyed ourselves. And if you didn't get the chance to make a movie, but really wanted to, don't worry; there's always next year. So get to plannin' and film your movie fast, because Blobfest 2011 will be here before you know it.
Thanks for a great evening, ladies and germs! See you next year!

That's it

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, that's it. The polls are closed and the votes are in. The committee has joined together, and we have picked our winners for this year's annual Shorty Awards.
As you all know, there will be three winners this year:
  • Under 17
  • Over 17
  • Fan Favorite
You watched, and you voted. And the time is now. The winners for this year's Shorty Awards are...

HA! You didn't think we'd actually tell you NOW, did you? No, you have to go to BlobFest this Friday night to find out! If you're one of the three winners, then you've probably already gotten an email from us, and you know who you are. But all of you out there on the Internet will not be so lucky! Head over to the Colonial Theatre this Friday night and we will reveal this year's winners of the Shorty Awards.
It all happens this Friday night. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
Be there.


The Polls Are CLOSED!

That's all, folks, the polls are CLOSED! No more votes!
We will be calculating the votes for the Fan Favorite Award and have the winner posted by the end of the day. All other winners will be contacted via email and be announced on Friday!
So keep watching this blog to see who will win the Fan Favorite Award! We know, the suspense is killing us too.
