With the recent announcement that The Muriel Awards will be ending after fifteen fine years, I thought I’d pick up the baton and keep the party going in 2021. It will be a simple affair: six categories and only six categories. Those categories are Best Picture, Best Director, Best Leading Performance, Best Supporting Performance, Best Screenplay, and Best Scene. Hopefully this sort of streamlined ballot will make things easy for the voters. The voting deadline is yet to be determined, but it will most likely be the first weekend in March of 2022.
The Spencers already have a reasonably diverse voting body. A list of those voters can be found here.
As you might have noticed, the featured image on this page is a rather adorable Boston Terrier. It’s Spencer, who was my best four-legged friend from 2005 until 2019. These awards will forever be a tribute to him. I still love ya and miss ya, buddy, although my new pal Ridley does keep me pretty busy.
That’s all for now, but keep checking back for further information.
