PostSubject: The Slenderoscars   Mon Feb 28, 2011 1:52 pm

So, since I'm fairly sure I'm dying of a lung disease along with half my campus (or, you know, we all have Slendersickness or someshit), I thought this would be a fun thing to put up before my inevitable demise.

There were worries about old favourites like JAF or DiD winning everything. So I propose they go the way of Casablanca-- they're treated as classics and aren't allowed to win any awards this year.

My thought was that, as opposed to the Slender vs. Slander topic, this isn't about the overall quality but the separate parts. For example, I love a Hint of Serendipity, but I wouldn't want it to win a Slenderoscar for "Best Plot". I would nominate it for a "Best Character" one, though.

It'd also be good to say why you wanted a certain blog to win a certain category.

And there are multiple categories. If people get better ideas or more ideas or want to change current ones, they should.

Also, I'd like to state that this is less a competition and more a way of directing people to blogs they might actually be interested in. You like action? The "Best Action" category is right over there? Love characters? Try the blogs nominated for the "Best Characters" award!

I know I love the blogs all equally (though some are more equal than others *Cough*) but I love them all for different reasons.

So how about this as a kind of outline:

The Classics
Just Another Fool
Dreams In Darkness
Seeking Truth (Note: I put Seeking Truth in the Classics category, but I think the Mystic can stay up for nominations.)

Awards and Nominations

Best Couple (Best Romantic Subplot?)
Reach and Ava (What You are in the
Dark and The London Librarian)
Genevieve and Chester (Exilis Veritas)
Jeff and Cheska (Let Us Keep Living)

Best Character
Zero (A Hint of Serendipity)
Celeste (Make It Count)
Reach (What You are in the Dark)
Maduin (A Really Bad Joke)
Andrew (Walking The Hallowed Halls)
Jean (Vivere Disce)
Hosozukuri (Breeze in Monochrome NIGHT)
Dr. Cairo Zelphest (Compile TRUTH)

Best Action
The London Librarian
Observe and Terminate

Best Plot (So Far)
Time out of Mind
The World That Never Was

Funniest Scene (Best Use of Mood Whiplash)
Conversations with Ole Blankity Blank (A Hint of Serendipity)
Friggin Frig (H(a)unting)

Best Scene/Post
'Fill' (Frap and Friends)
'History of the World Part 1' (Vivere Disce)

Best Parody/Comedy
Concrete Giraffes
SplendorMan
Marble Yellowjackets
A New Blog That's Not Mine

Best Crossover
Peering in from the Outside/Vivere Disce
'Two Deliveries' -- Compile TRUTH/Observe and Terminate

Most Mindfucking
Observe and Terminate
White Elephants

Most Legitimately Terrifying
Dreams In Darkness
Dare 2 Die


The three major vLogs are excluded from everything because there has already been a pretty good consensus about their strengths and weaknesses. So they get to be all isolated and alooone.

Open for nominations/new categories until Saturday the 5th of March. !

Voting closes Sunday March 13th? Hopefully this will be fun?

Votes are SEEKRIT. So send them via PM.

It doesn't count if it's already EVERYONE'S opinion.

Uh, it's an awards ceremony, wouldn't everyone agreeing make it count more? :P

I mean it's pretty much cheating, you can't tell someone to vote between the Manliest show ever and put up Gurren Lagann against anything else. It's just not fair.

These are all nominations, not votes.

I nominate Time out of Mind for best plot.

I'd like "Best Scene/Post" for another category. And then nominate (and I can't believe I'm actually saying this) "Fill" from FRIENDS. I can't believe I'm nominating something by Frap, since he's usually so infuriating, but it's actually a pretty well-written post that drew me in.

I'd also like to propose the "Best parody/comedy" and nominate "Splendorman" and "Concrete Giraffes."

I'd like to nominate Jean from Vivere disce for Best Character.

If you include Andy's categories, I'd also like to nominate The History of the World, Part 1 from Vivere disce for Best Scene/Post and Marble Yellowjackets for Best Parody.

I'd also like to suggest two more categories; Best Crossover and Most Mindfucking, and nominate Vivere disce/Peering In From The Outside for the former and Observe and Terminate for the latter.

In case you can't guess, I really like Vivere disce.
