Don’t you think that Godzilla himself deserves a Rondo? Then VOTE!

Forget the inanity of the Academy Awards® and those flaccid Oscars© — it’s time to voting for this year’s nominees in 10th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards! Another year has past, and I’ve again been humbled in being nominated thrice this time around! First, for my interview with Godzilla himself, Haruo Nakajima, appearing in Famous Monsters of Filmland #256 (an “All Japanese Monsters” issue in which I also served as Associate Editor). Then, another for my blog, The Good, The Bad, and Godzilla (which you are currently reading), for a fourth consecutive nomination! And last, but not least, for Mr. Nakajima’s stage appearance at the Monsterpalooza convention last April, for which I presented and moderated (although I am not named on the ballot). There’s a lot of competition every year, so please take the time to vote, because we have quite a few other deserving nominees, as always!

Here are the categories I’m running in for this year’s Rondos:

14. BEST INTERVIEW (Award goes to the Interviewer): “Haruo Nakajima: The Man of a Thousand Monsters,” by August Ragone. FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND #256. The man who played Godzilla, Rodan, Gargantua and many others recalls the hot suit, the staged battles and the work ethic.

18. BEST BLOG OF 2011: “The Good, the Bad and the Godzilla”, August Ragone’s G-blog is wise among giant monsters. (Although my blog is not limited to Japanese monster flicks, or giant monster movies, or even Japanese films, in general.)

20. BEST FAN EVENT OF 2011: “They Called Him Godzilla”. Hauro Nakajima talks about wearing the Godzilla suit. Monsterpalooza in Burbank. (If this takes the win, despite the stiff [no pun intended] competition, I will present this Rondo to Mr. Nakajima, himself!)

I should also chime in that 15. BEST MAGAZINE FILMBOOK, THEME OR SPECIAL CONTENT has a “Write In” option; and I would strongly suggest writing in, “Famous Monsters #256: Colossal Kaiju Invasion” (All Japanese Monsters) Issue!

Thanks for indulging me and let’s get Mr. Nakajima a Rondo because he’s a living legend and deserves it (I hope you’ll vote in my favor, too — because I never win anything; and it would be cool to win a Rondo)! For a full listing of this year’s nominees, your ballot, and how to vote, please visit the link below: All ballots must be received by Midnight on Sunday, April 1, 2012! Good luck to all of this year’s Nominees!
