Blog in Exile: Rondo Hatton Awards Announced

I'll bet you didn't know that there was an award named for acromegalic actor Rondo Hatton -- I know I didn't. But it turns out that there is, and that nearly 1,500 people voted for it this year.

The awards, as one might expect, are mostly for film & TV horror, but there's also a Best Book category (won this year by Kerry Gamill & J. David Spurlock's Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos), and a Writer of the Year (won this year by Tim Lucas). You can follow the link above for the full list -- the big award appears to be Best Movie, which was won by Pan's Labyrinth.

I'm indebted to the Greater Richmond area (Indiana) Palladium-Item for tipping me off to the existence of this award.
