Phase II of Brodie Awards Nominations!!

We have some really fantastic nominations for the Brodie Awards so far — thanks to everyone who has nominated! And don’t forget that the voting for X-Mormon of the year will continue here until Thursday, January 12, 2016.

This post is my first pass at collecting the nominations (and adding my own), so that you can see which categories need more work! 😀

Year-long awards for people and groups:

Best New Blog/Channel/Podcast This category could use some more nominations — note it is limited to blogs/channels/podcasts that first started posting during 2016 (or very late in 2015, eg. December).

Best Humor/Satire Blog/Channel/Podcast

Best Scripture Study Blog/Channel/Podcast

Best Mormon History Blog/Channel/Podcast

Best LDS-Church-Info Site

Best LDS-interest Discussion Forum: This category needs at least two more nominations to be included in the awards phase.

Best Exmormon Reddit Contributor

Best faithful-perspective Mormon Blog or Podcast

Awards for Individual Works:

Best LDS-Interest Book (Fiction) This category needs at least one more nomination to be included in the awards phase.

Best LDS-Interest Book (General non-fiction)

Best LDS-Interest Book (Narrative non-fiction)

Best LDS-Interest Song

Best Poem

Best Exmo Fiction Posted Online: For this category to continue, we need at least one more nomination — also I need to know which of Don Bagley’s stories (from 2016) on the page below was the intended nomination.

Best LDS-Interest Comic or Image

Best Mormon-Themed Meme Note to happy_apostate: please pick which one of your nominations you would like to have as your entry in the awards phase — otherwise it’s too many nominations of the same artist by the same nominator, plus I prefer not to have multiple works by the same artist competing against each other in a single category.

Please post your nominations as comments to this thread (although I will probably find them if you leave them on one of the other nomination threads). Remember to always post links to the works you nominate, otherwise it is often difficult for me to find them.

To keep your comment from getting caught in the spam filter, please only post two or three nominations per comment. If your comment doesn’t appear, email me: chanson dot exemormon at gmail dot com. Even if you have already posted nominations, feel free to post more, in accordance with the guidelines posted here.

I have consolidated and split some categories based the number of pieces of different types that got nominated — but keep in mind that it’s not too late to propose a new category if you do it right away. Also note that if you’ve been nominated, but your category has fewer than three nominees, it’s in your interest to nominate some of your colleagues/competitors so the category can be included in the awards phase. 😉

If you see any errors in the above, please leave a comment.

Thanks to everyone who has participated so far!!

    Thanks for the submissions!

    According to the guidelines, we request that each nominator nominate no more than two pieces by any one artist/author, but I guess it’s OK…
