Alright for now*

Ever have one of those days so good you want to wake up the next day and relive it? That was my yesterday … though Lee Pace and Colin Hanks weren’t waiting on the stoop to battle for a spot in my heart (and, OK, other areas). So it came damn close to being perfect.

Since my blogging machine is on the fritz, this is a brief post to say “thanks” for all the votes, readers and friends, that helped me win the LAMMY for Best Blog and tie for Best New LAMB and Best Movie Reviewer. The competition was fierce, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Kudos to all the fellow bloggers out there, many of whom took home awards of their own, including Heather at Movie Mobsters, Aiden R. at Cut the Crap Reviews, Ryan at The Dark of the Matinee (who cleaned house) and Andy at Fandango Groovers — just to name a few.

For everyone who supports these movie scribbles … you rock. You really do. And you make my heart of hearts very full.

  2. Some might get surly with a second place finish…I for one am quite content finishing right behind ya.

    Well done!

  3. congratulations, M! That is awesome news.

  4. Hatter’s totally lying. He called me up late Friday acting surly as all get-out. He even started the call by saying “Surl” instead of “Hello.” Yes, I was confused.

    Many congrats on the win, M. Glad to have you as the LAMB’s Best Blog winner.

  5. you deserved it. Congratulations.

  6. Well done and well deserved, congratulations.

    • Thanks to everyone for the congratulations … it was quite the nice surprise to leave the Ozzy Osbourne tribute band concert (yeah) Friday night and find out I’d won not just an award, but THE award!

  7. [...] Alright for now* « M. Carter @ the Movies [...]

  8. Congrats Meredith! So well deserved we, at AM, can’t even feel bad about losing against you and the other runner ups!

  9. Go for the repeat!

  10. Damn woman, out of nearly 600 blogs in this fun community, you pull out a hard fought but very deserving win. I congratulate you and shower you with compliments.

    Well if there’s anyone who says a woman can’t make it in a man’s world they never met the Mighty Mer…now that I think of it, I never have either:P

    But sadly, you are simply too cool to be on my blogroll anymore…it’s been nice knowing you:P J/K…You are just so awesome and you really deserve it Mer!!

    • @ Fitz — You betta believe it — I’m not going to sit back and rest on these laurels!

      @ Fletch — I think you lie about Hatter; what would he have to be surly about? The man won or tied for practically every award LAMB gave out! (And Hatter, you totally deserved all the accolades!)

      @ Marc — Wow, man. You make me sound like Rosie the Riveter. I wanna blast “I Am Woman” in my car on the way home now!

  11. Woo hooo!! Sorry for the late congratulatory gushes but you deserve it!!! I’ve been following your blog ever since I started mine and you already know this, but your writing style is just off the charts! Like Marc said, you really are too cool to be on my blogroll. I sure am proud to call you FlixChatter’s friends :)

  12. What a well-earned honor! Congrats, M.

  13. Well Done Meredith, Congratulations on winning the Best Blog Lammy Award, it is well deserved. :-)

  14. Your win was beyond well deserved. It really has been a pleasure during this whole award season to see so many people I respect and personally dig get recognition for all the work you guys contribute to our obsessive hobby! :-) You are one fly chick.

  15. I was rooting for you, Meredith. I’m glad you got recognized for your scribbles as you call them.

  16. Congratulations! :)

    • Keep it up, peoples, and my head won’t be able to fit in the door!

      No, really, go on.

      @ Ruth — I’m not sure I could communicate how encouraging you have been since we started reading each other’s blogs. You always have the nicest things to say about my writing, which pushes me not to slack off!

      @ Heather — It is awesome to get recognition for something we all do because we love and not because we get paid … no better feeling than that!

  17. Haha, much like everybody else has already said, this is much deserved, and keep up the good work! :)

  18. Congratulations! Happy to see that credit was given, where credit was due:)

  19. Your win is much deserved. Keep up the great writing!
