Awards, Done A Little Differently

Sarah Weinman has posted a full list of nominees for the 2003 Barry Awards, to be announced at this year’s Boucheron (which we’ve always wanted to attend just to hear how many different ways the word can be pronounced). It’s hot, we’re lazy, and Sarah’s reproduced the full list, so follow the link below. We’re quite excited by at least one finalist. Darn it, we’re not as lazy as we hoped — we dropped by the Deadly Pleasures website…what an interesting approach they took in the nominating process. Nominees from the previous year cannot be nominated in the current year. This ensures the nominating committee considers fresh voices rather than favorite favorites. We’d like to see this concept spread to other awards.
