I be nominated…

…for a 2010 National Entertainment Journalism Award, given by the Los Angeles Press Club.

How’s that for Notability?

The finalists were announced a month ago, and I only just accidentally stumbled across this news this morning. I’m a finalist in the Online Critic category. My fellow nominees are:

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
Tom Tangney, MyNorthwest.com
Desson Thomson. The Wrap
Rick Warner, Bloomberg News

Go to the L.A. Press Club’s site to download a complete list of the nominees.

Winners will be announced tonight(!) at a ceremony in Hollywood.

    Wow congratulations MaryAnn!

  • Magess

    Congrats, and good luck!

  • JoshDM

    How do you not get notified for something like this? Also, I wonder if you need your self-scribed Wikipedia vanity page back. :) Congrats!

  • MaryAnn

    How do you not get notified for something like this?

    I wondered the same thing.

  • Brian

    Maybe you have to be “notable” to be notified. :-)

  • David

    Congratulations! And good luck. Although you seem to be a clear winner (is my bias showing?)

  • Patrick


  • Congratulations! Do you get to go to the ceremony? I guess not, if you weren’t invited… What’s up with that?

    I also submit that the Penguin Rocker Award that both Tonio and I gave you on our sites makes you “notable.” ;-)

  • MaryAnn

    Do you get to go to the ceremony?

    It’s tonight in LA. I’m in NYC. So, probably not

  • If Wiki won’t take you back, you can always try getting an entry with TV Tropes. :)

    Part of my plan to conquer the world — which I shall implement shortly — involves made of such awesome that Wikipedia won’t be able to ignore me. And I will totally pretend not to notice them when they pass me in the hallway near the gym before fourth period and wave at me like we’re best friends.

    Well, seeing as the Los Angeles Press Club is not notable enough for its own article, I’m not sure it’s going to help you. :(

  • I_Sell_Books

    Good luck!

    Stupid Wikipedia.

  • Jester

    Congrats and good luck.

    Be advised, though, it’ll be tough to beat Peter Rainer with that particular group doing the selecting. Though if it’s any comfort, he doesn’t have a Wikipedia page either. ;-)

    In the immortal words of the inimitable Kathy Griffin: “Suck it, Wikipedia!”

    Congrats, MAJ. You deserve it.

  • Stefanie

    Congratulations! (And not to beat a dead horse, but I cannot believe they didn’t even let you know you were nominated. Sheesh.)

  • MaryAnn

    Well, I didn’t win:


    It’s back to being unnotable for me…
