I'm seconding Straight Outta Lynwood Survivor series for Best Poll. Yeah ... I know ... I said I wouldn't do that. Oh well, it's close, and I enjoy voting in that poll, so it will probably be what I vote for when the time comes.

What does that mean?

Well ... the nomination process is OVER!

Here is a list of the last six categories and who or what ended up being nominated and seconded for them.

The chances are, I will probably not be around tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern, so a slight change of plans ... I'll post the link to the Voting Polls now!

Only real rule in voting is that you can only vote ONCE (mewrio will be monitoring this)! The first question asks for your screen name ... please enter it as it appears on the forum. You will also notice that there are 28 questions after the initial screen ... this is because the Best Parodist category is broken out by date.

As I said last night, the voting poll will remain open until Sunday, February 11th at 8:00 PM Eastern time ... this should give you plenty of time to consider your vote and actually place it.

And again, I would like to thank mewrio for his work on the poll ... as well as scottidog for letting us use her website for hosting it.

WOWAY Awards V - Voting Poll.

Good luck to everyone nominated! :)

Just a reminder ... if you have yet to vote, NOW would be a good time to do so ... the polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time tonight (in less than nineteen hours)!

Any votes cast after that time will not be counted.

If you have yet to vote, you can go here and do so (same location as my previous post).

The nominations have been made ... the votes have been cast ... the polls have been tabulated.

The actual WOWAY Award ceremony will be held on the 27th of this month, about ten days from now. It's still set to begin at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.

There will be surprises ... there will be cheers ... there may be tears ... and there will be at least 27 worthy winners.

(And thanks, again, to mewrio for all of his help in getting the poll set up and everything else)

And ... while it wasn't a category, I did ask for a write in vote for the Next WOWAY Awards Host.

And, it ended up in a tie ... with seven votes going to both Elvis and Well, Well, Well. I'll let them work that out (they'd make great co-hosts).

This ends my duties as your host. Again, many congratulations to every one nominated. And if you won an award, I know Elvis wouldn't mind updating your Title for you, so that you can showcase it.

You are also free to use this avatar ...

... or make your very own.

And you can also make your acceptance speech in this topic!

Doesn't get much better than that.

I'd like to thank mewrio once again for his help in setting up the polls, and scottidog, for allowing us to use her website to host the polls.

Thank you ... and good night.
