I’ll be awarding a gold, silver and bronze stoney for each category, Olympics-style. I merged the “actor” and “actress” awards because I only saw and reviewed 30 movies this year, so I felt like splitting the genders diluted the field somewhat. There will also be a few special awards for….outstanding achievement….in the feld of…..excellence.
I’ll give you the weekend to ponder and consider. The results drop Monday.
