The winners post 2011 is finally here!
First, and on behalf of this years Judges, Melissa Bradley, Christian James, MindOfMine and of course myself, we would like to thank everyone who has taken part in TheMovie411 Blog Awards 2011, and an even bigger thank you to those who have nominated and voted over the past couple of months.
For the winners, your badge awards will have been sent to your e-mail. If you have not received them please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . Though please allow until 5pm Thursday 21st December to recieve them.
Ok so lets get down to the categories and them all important winners…..
TheMovie411 Best Post Award, your nominees are:
Worst Movies Ever Blogfest
Cool Ass Cinema for: Franchise Of Fear Halloween Part 1
Lets Get Out Of Here for: Voorhees Jolly Good Fellow
FilmMattic for: Film Rant
SonSation for: Who’s Your Favourite Muppet
And The Winner is…..Craig Edwards of Lets Get Out Of Here for his post: Voorhees Jolly Good Fellow.
Fighting off some rather smart competition, Craig’s post takes the grand prize. His post on the Friday the 13th horror icon - Jason Voorhees not only shows an in depth knowledge of movie and character, but his witty style and pure love for the genre pours out to create a ‘must read’ article. Well done Craig!
The Movie411 Best Newcomer Award, your nominees are:
And your Winner is….Movie Marker
Chief Editor Luke Walkley
It’s hard to believe a blog site can grow so fast in such a short space of time, however the creators that be at Movie Marker have achieved just that. Though an occurance of a disqualification in the Top5 of this category, the competition was very tough with all entrants. Movie Marker displays some exceptional reviews from many of their writers, and also some fun Oscar predictions as well a few look-backs of cinematic classics. Their fun and informative posts have clinched your votes for them to take away The Best Newcomer award, well done everyone at MM!
TheMovie411 Best Action Blog Award, your nominees are:
Action Flick Chick
Watching The Detectives
Direct To Video Connoisseur
A Life In Equinox
And the Winner is…Katrina Hill - Action Flick Chick
She won Best Action last year and she’s done it again this year, Queen of Action herself - Katrina Hill and her awesome site dedicated to action movies seems unbeatable in this category as she fought off other strong contenders to remain at the top.
If Swarzennegger himself had an action blog, he’d still be not match for Miss Hill…..She’ll Be Back!
TheMovie411 Best Horror Blog Award, your nominees are:
Memoirs Of A Scream Queen
Dinner With Max Jenkie
Horror Movie Diary
Haribo Extreme Culture
And The Winner is: Haribo Extreme Culture
Chief Editor Anil Koc
Remaining one of our most competitive categories, Haribo Extreme Culture fights off some big guns of the Horror Blogosphere and takes the title.
Proving there’s no language barrier when it comes to TheMovie411 Blog Awards, the Turkish writers at Haribo Extreme Culture are very knowledgeable of the genre and sometimes their posts are freakier than the movies they review. We love it! Well done H.E.C!
The Movie411 Best Design Blog Award, your nominees are:
Radio Pop Action
And the Winner is....Movie Marker
Their second gong of the night, Movie Marker walks away with Best Design. Their site sports a professional look and is easy to navigate, but not only that, it looks damn cool too! These guys look pretty unstoppable tonight, MM we salute you!
TheMovie411 Best Sci-Fi Blog Award, your nominees are:
Alex J Cavanaugh
The Geek Twins
And the Winner is…Alex J. Cavanaugh
What a shocker - Alex J Cavanaugh walks away with Best Sci-Fi for the second year in a row and we are all pretty happy about it. The Sci-Fi author who was also Top5 for Best Post this year will be humbly bowing out of next years awards to host and judge The Movie411 Blog Awards 2012. Winning by a large margin it’s safe to say - Alex, you really are king of Sci-Fi and next years winner has a lot to live up to.
TheMovie411 Best Gossip Blog Award, and the nominees are:
And the Winner is…Dezmond -Hollywood Spy
Last years Gold Award winner, Hollywood Spy, triumphs in the Best Gossip category again this year. Also winning in 2010, Dezmond proves he is the king of gossip with his daily posts containing headlines and spoilers on all things entertainment.
Hollywood Spy loves you and there’s nothing you can do about it…..but we love you more! Well done Dez!
The Movie411 Sexiest Female Blog Author Award, the Head2Head nominees are:
Jenny Kruger- Memoirs Of A Scream Queen
And The Winner is….Melissa Bradley
Fighting off someone as stunning as Miss Kruger is no easy achievement, but Mel proves she’s our Queen this year and wow do we love you!
TheMovie411 Sexiest Male Blog Author, the Head2Head nominees are:
Mitch- Movies With Mitch Matt- FilmMattic
And the Winner is…Mitch
Mitch, you are our hunk of 2011 and fighting off someone as sexy as Matt with his abs of steel proves your natural good looks are what the ladies are willing to give up their knickers…I mean votes for. Well done chap, I think I fancy you myself! (seriously he’s a bit of alright isn’t he?)
The Judges Awards:
Ok a quick breather before the two big awards, Special Achievement and Gold Blog awards are announced. I hope your having fun so far.
Helping me judge Best Comedy, Best Interview and the Special Achievement Awards this year are:
Christian James, returning this year and responsible for registering your nominations and making sure the voting poll has no cheaters, our beloved CJ has sifted through hundreds of blogs (as have we all) to search for them all important winners.
He’s also responsible for being a huge pain in my backside and relentless abuse about my huge nose.
Melissa Bradley: Co-Editor of TheMovie411 and now our very own sexiest female of the year 2011, Mel has also been working hard replying to all you nominators and registering your votes.
MindOfMine: Our Guest Writer this year and now our guest judge..he runs a cool blog and has a huge love for the blog awards and was only too happy to submit his views on our suggestions.
So without further do….
Your Judges Choice Award for Best Comedy is…..Cinema Obsessed
Your Judges Choice Award for Best Animation is…..CineMarvellous
Your Judges Choice Award for Best Interview is…..Hollywood Spy
Hollywood Spy has become a must read for entertainment gossip, and with Dezmond gaining interviews like this, is it any wonder?
The Movie411 Special Achievement Award 2011 Judges choice Award:
CineMarvellous is a dedicated blog to all movie genres and is run with absolute devotion to his followers by George, a.k.a Nebular.
Nominated for 4 MBA’s last year and 3 MBA’s this year including the Gold Award, winning best Animation in 2010 and 2011 proves that not only is he talented, but that his posts are loved by many readers.

To a Blog that just gets bigger and better every year, there really is no other blog that deserves this recognition more than CineMarvellous. Congratulations George, on behalf of all the judges and your readers, you deserve it.
