The Lammys- Thank You Part 2: Rise of the Gratitude

As I mentioned at the end of May, I was fortunate enough to be nominated for three Lammy Awards from the Large Association of Movie Blogs- Best Blog, Best New Blog, and Funniest Blog. The votes are in, they’ve been tallied, and I walked away with the award for Funniest Blog. I’m honored just to have been nominated. To win exceeds my expectations. To win the award for Funniest makes me really happy. You see, to paraphrase Goodfellas, “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to make people laugh. To me, making people laugh was better than being President of the United States”. So once again, I owe everyone who nominated me and/or voted for me a hearty thank you. And now, a special tribute video to the voters from those great warrior-poets of yesteryear, Boyz II Men:

And one more.

Ok, just kidding. Don’t really watch that Bette Midler video. I mean… unless you’re actually into that sort of thing. Instead, please check out the LAMB site to see all of the winners. They’re all great movie blogs.

  1. Congratulations, John! You most certainly deserve it.

  2. Congratulations John. There were some fantastic blogs nominated this year across the board and to walk away with a wee pet Lambkins is a wonderful thing. Well done man.

  3. A hearty congratulations to you John!

  4. A big congrats dude. That Boyz II Men video is nicely appropriate, and of course your post made me laugh. Keep up the funnies man!

  5. Well done sir!! It was a fore gone conclusion in my eyes!! You are a nutter and a clever one at that!!

    Sorry for my absence since Wednesday, I have been on a little holiday!!

    Back now.

  6. Congratulations, you deserve it!

  7. Congrats John, good job man. Perhaps your C3PO costume fetish WAS funny after all. LOL ;)

  8. The guy who met Kevin Meany

    Congrats! You know, I feel like a Rick Astley video would have been more appropriate. Show your appreciation by Rickrolling the readers.

  9. Congrats on the LAMMY! Of course now I will be disappointed if I ever visit here and don’t laugh at least once. :)

    But seriously, you deserved this one. Awesome stuff.

    • Heh… I’m going to start off every entry for the next year with some ridiculous clip that’s bound to make people laugh.

      Thanks for the kind words, Eric.

  10. Dan

    Congrats on the big win, John! You definitely deserve all the recognition.

  11. Congrats. Your FYC banner was also my favorite of the bunch this year.

    • Thank you! I got to the Sweet 16, but alas… no further.

      I can now tell the story, though- I made Duke and the Movie’s banner too. Even though mine lost out, another one I created crept into the Final Four.
