Help Wanted: The great self-nomination challenge, or, CiMBA Awards and what to do about them

poll-header-movies-silently

I am in a bit of a quandary and was hoping that my readers would be able to help me out.

I belong to the Classic Movie Blog Association and every year, they have the CiMBA awards to honor members. This is my very first year of membership so I am still finding my way around.

Here’s how it works: There are seven categories. Bloggers may pick up to four of those categories and self-nominate one post per category.

This is where you come in. The self-nominating is a little difficult for me. I wrote this stuff and feel like I need outside opinions. Any help would be enormously appreciated.

Which review should I self-nominate?

The review category is divided into two: Drama or Musical/Comedy. Here are some of the ones I was thinking of:

The Doll (comedy)

Tempest (drama)

Alias Jimmy Valentine (drama)

The Bells (drama)

The Prisoner of Zenda (drama)

Show People (comedy)

Remember, this is based on the review, not how much I love the film. So, these are the reviews that I think I did the best job on. (I am so uncomfortable with this!)

Which article should I self-nominate?

Stolen Bravery (I actually like this review best but I wasn’t sure if an image-based post was in the spirit of the awards)

Questions from the Google: Tied to the Railroad Tracks

Kinetoscope, Vitaphone, Part-Talkie… huh?

Which series should I self-nominate?

Silent Take (modern films recast as silent movies)

About Silent Movies (most common questions about silent films answered)

After the Silents (reviews of sound movies with silent veterans in the cast and mini-bios of the performers in question)

Silent Movie Myths (common misconceptions about silent movies debunked)

What you can do

You can offer suggestions in the comments or use this handy form.

Thanks for your help!

PS, the fourth topic I am going to self-nominate is Best Classic Movie Blog Design.

  1. Brilliant idea! I’m in the same boat and feeling “weird” about nominating myself for anything. I’ll give it a shot, as it’s my first time too, to see how it goes. 🙂

      1. 🙂 You’re the bestest!! I like too many of yours to choose – even from those you listed. If I had to I’d say “Show People” stood out, but maybe only because I thought the movie was right up my alley.
