Sure, the Oscars are important, but they hardly ever honor horror films. The Scream Awards are fine, but they're geared toward modern horror. What's a classic horror fan to do? Luckily, there's the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards (or the "Rondos"), put together by David Colton over at the Classic Horror Film Board (no relation to Classic-Horror.com). Each year, classic horror fans nominate dozens of horror/sci-fi/fantasy films, television shows, DVDs, magazines, books, and websites to win a handsomely sculpted bust of horror actor Rondo Hatton.
This year's ballot can be found at http://www.rondoaward.com/. To vote, send an email to Colton at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, March 8th.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
