It's the award season again, and here in The Vault of Horror, that means it's time for the Cyber Horror Awards. Voted on exclusively by the online horror blogging/journalism community, the CHAs are now in their third installment, and have been gaining momentum each year thus far. I'm hoping this year's edition will have the strongest votership yet.
2010 was an interesting year for horror, and I think the nominees this time around reflect that. To check out the full list of nominees in the full 13 categories, proceed to the official website of the Cyber Horror Awards. Meanwhile, for you short attention-span types, here are the nominees for the the main prize, the Val Lewton Award for Best Film of 2010:
Black Swan, Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, Agnes b. Productions
Let Me In, Hammer Films
Survival of the Dead, Blank of the Dead Productions
Piranha 3-D, Dimension Films
I'd like to thank Paul Bibeau (author of the best-selling Sundays with Vlad) and Max Cheney of the Rondo Award-winning blog The Drunken Severed Head for helping me put together the list of nominees, and also the highly talented B-Movie Becky of The Horror Effect for once again coming through with an updated award banner.
As in previous years, the ballots have been sent out to a veritable cornucopia of the horror blogosphere's best and brightest. Votes will continue to be tabulated until the middle of March, at which point the official winners of the 2010 Cyber Horror Awards will be announced. So stay tuned, keep your eye on the Cyber Horror Awards website, and right here.
