The Golden Gandalf awards - what a great idea by TORn!
The Golden Gandalf Awards!
2/26/04, 2:11 pm EST - Celeborn

All fans, attending the "Return of the One Party" or not, can now vote to help award TheOneRing.net's highest honor, "The Golden Gandalfs."

This year the award and categories concentrate on the actors, who were not rewarded by Oscar. There are 14 fun-loving categories and the "Spirit of Gandalf" award, given to the actor who has interacted best with fans. Voting will be open now until Sunday afternoon, before the official start of the "Return of the One Party." [VOTE NOW!]

Now for the legal language: Winners will be announced at TheOneRing.net sometime following the big party, after the staff recovers and can get them posted. Voters who submit more than one ballot will have all votes thrown out. Open to legal residents of the world with a sense of humor or at least fun. Anybody taking the awards too seriously will be reported to the fun police.

Go here to vote: http://www.theonering.net/perl/goldengandalfsurvey.pl

p.s. I've already notified them about Billy's name missing from the "Most Likely to Win an Oscar"

Here are my votes:

Best Kill - Aragorn Killing Lurtz
Best Death - Death of Lurtz (*G*)
Most Appealing Grime - Samwise
Most in Demand for TORn Karaoke Night - Billy Boyd
Best Exit - Frodo
Most Emotive (or intense) Eyes - Elijah Wood as Frodo
Best Eater - Gimli
Most Elegant - Galadriel
Best Performance Heard but not Seen - Andy Serkis as Gollum
Best Performance with Least Screentime - Cate Blanchett as Galadriel
Most Highly Anticipated Added Footage on the EE ROTK (they didn't have any of my choices!!!) - Ian McKellen confronting the WitchKing
Best Performance in the Trilogy - Viggo Mortenson
Formerly Unknown, Forever Unforgettable - Billy Boyd (you were expecting somebody else?!?!?)
Most Likely to Win an Oscar Down the Road (again, they didn't have my honest choice - Billy Boyd) - Viggo Mortenson

Actor/Actress with Best Interaction with LOTR Fans? - SEAN ASTIN! (and an honorary award to JRD - *S*)

Sorry, Dom - didn't pick you for anything! :(

Yay - brilliant idea!!! *L*

definitely ..who could resist the tear streaked ((((Sammie grime))))) for appeal!

Dagnabit ..I need there to be a Silver and Bronze Gandalf too - (or THREE gold ones to be more precise!!) for Best Interaction :) Of course Sean gets my vote (the best "patience with Jules" award too)! ...but JRD and Serena deserve the honours too!!
