    Announcing the 1st Annual Best of Mythic Scribes Awards 2012

    With 2012 winding down and the potential Mayan doomsday upon us, I conferred with the other staff of Mythic Scribes and we have decided to do our first annual Best of Mythic Scribes Awards.

    This thread will be for nominating your ideas for the Best of 2012. If you don't have an idea for a certain category, you can abstain from nominating for that specific one. Once all the nominations are in, I will post the nominees to be voted for. On or around December 31st (if a rogue planet doesn't hit us) I will post the results of the voting. You can vote either by posting on the thread or sending a PM to me, Phil the Drill (for my private voters. :) )

    You're right, sorry about that. I'll edit my choice then. Would you like to nominate some choices?

    Tyrion Lanester, that little whoremonger. Love Game of Thrones, but I can't nominate, because I have only watched season one. Season one-nominations: best scene-crowning of the exhiled king with a very fresh crown.
    Best Fantasy movie: only one I saw was Snow White and the Huntsman. I missed alot. I'm betting best movie is yet to be released, Hobbit.
    Movies of 2012: Wrath of Titans, John Carter,(that Dr from Er?) Mirror, mirror, Jack and the giant slayer, Brave, odd life of timothy Green, Snow White and the Huntsman. Complete list: Best Fantasy Movies 2012

    Will have to review for site awards, it will be very difficult.

    You don't have to nominate for every category if you don't want. Just pick and choose the ones you'd like to nominate for. I'll collect all the nominations for voting towards the end of December.

    Best animated fantasy Tv show: How to train your dragon.

    Does "Arrow" fall into fantasy? Come-on, using a thin wood bow in a melee attack? Blocking and striking with it, thats got to be fantasy.

    Really a good year for tv Fantasy attempts at least.

    Best Overall Thread: Kill this thread started by Phil the Drill. It's the Gangnam Style of Mythic Scribes.

    Most Helpful Thread: Guidelines for Discussing Religion by Black Dragon. I believe the reasons why I nominate this thread are self-explanatory.

    Best Post: "Ewwww. Gross." (Post #3) by Sparkie.

    Best Challenge: This is a tie between The "Legendary Sidekick" Trigger Challenge and 'Steerpike's Dialogue Challenge", by the Legendary One and The Master of Gormenghast respectively.

    Best Showcase Entry: First Chapter (2,200 words)... by Centerfield97. Though I've read dozens of excellent Showcase entries during my brief time here, this stands alone as my favorite.

    Best Article: Why the Star Wars Prequels Failed by Antonio del Drago. There are too many reasons to list why I love this article.

    Greatest Thread of All Time: The Endless Hunt: Season 2, An Explosive Island hosted by the Legendary One.

    Uh-huh...That's right...

    This is having the effect I hoped it would have. I'm getting to check out threads and articles (The Star Wars one I completely missed somehow!) I may have missed the first time around. Keep the nominations coming everyone.

    Best Challenges post - Anita in the Reaver challange.
    Best Challenge - The Reaver Challange (The first one, I have no idea how the other one went though I'm sure it rocked!)
    That's all I got, not that there is anything shabby about anything here but, I have not kept up to date in recent months.

    Best Movie- I agree with mindfire.... It might not be out yet but it's gonna be killer good I'm sure.

    Best Overall Thread This is difficult. So difficult, in fact, I will not choose.
    Most Helpful Thread My first showcase post, it showed me that this is a community full of friendly and smart people willing to help.
    Best Post This absolutely cracks me up.
    Best Challenge Iron Pen, which I will eventually win.
    Best Showcase Entry I like 'em all.
    Best Article Gonna go with the flow and say Benjamin's Stop Writing That Epic. Good advice.
    Member's Choice The Second (EVER!) Reaver Challenge. Quite fun.

    I will submit nominations when I have a working home PC I can submit from. Can't do it at work, I don't have time for it.

    When do nominations close anyway?

    Hmm...I figure they will close on December 21st. That will give people time to offer up more ideas. I'm going to take whatever people nominate then make lists. If I don't have enough nominations, I will just take some ideas from other "Best of 2012" lists and use some of them. That way voting can be the last week of December.

    Thanks everyone that's posted so far!

    I'm betting this is true, but I have seen previews of movies that looked great, but failed.
    So I won't nominate, but you already have, so it doesn't matter.
