Collecting Nominations for the 2023 Brodie Awards!!

2023 Brodie Awards

It’s finally awards season again!

As always, the objective of the “Brodie Awards” is to give a bit more recognition and signal boost to creative works by ex-Mormons (or any liberal Mo’s willing to hang with us) that have LDS-interest subject matter. And as usual, I’ll review the guidelines, then list the category recommendations, and then you (yes you!! whoever you are!) are free to submit your nominations in the comments below.

  • Please nominate only works that first appeared during 2023.
  • Please include links to the works you nominate. (If your nomination comment doesn’t appear right away, please email me at chanson dot exmormon at gmail dot com).
  • Please nominate as many people, books, blogs, sites, podcasts, songs, articles, images, etc. as you want. However, please do not nominate more than two individual works by any one author/artist.
  • You are encouraged to nominate your own works. No one knows better than you do which pieces were your best. No more than two, though.
  • Please only nominate works that have some connection with Mormonism (or, y’know, the religious movement formerly known as “Mormonism” *eyeroll*).
  • A category must have at least three nominations in order to be included in the voting and awards phase.
  • You may suggest your own categories — however please do it as early as possible in the nominations process, to give others plenty of time to add nominations in your proposed categories.
  • Any other proposed changes to the categories or to the guidelines are welcome — feel free to discuss it in the comments.
  • The nominations will be open until late December 2023, or, more likely, mid-January, 2024, depending on my schedule. I will finalize the dates and categories and add my own nominations a few days before the nominations close and voting begins.

Here are the categories from last year. Please keep in mind that these are just suggestions. Every year the types of content that are rocking the Internet shift a bit — so please feel free to suggest your own categories accordingly!

    Here are the nomination threads on Reddit:

    I will be monitoring those threads, and you can add your nominations there instead of here if you prefer.

    I love Zelph on the Shelf and their post-religious info-tainment!

    Thanks for the nominations!!!

    I just found a really good one for best exit story:

  5. chanson says:

    Actually the title of this video suggests a category we might consider including this year: “The Most Harmful Mormon Talk of 2023”

  6. I would like to nominate a new category for Best Post-Mormon SCI-Fi Content. I nominate Trekxmo.

    Hi Landon — very cool, I love it!!

    The one caveat is that the category requires at least three nominees to be accepted. We have a few options here:
    1. if you know of two other post-mo SCI-Fi content providers, you can nominate them as well, and then the category is ready to go, or
    2. We could nominate individual works from this facebook group (possibly in a humor or memes category), or
    3. We could create a category of “Best Post-Mo special interest group”, along with Ex-Mo coffee lovers of “Latte Day Saints” (and find a third special-interest PostMo community to round out the category).

    Which do you prefer?
