Fogs’ Movie Reviews has won the 2013 Lammy for Best Community Builder!

LammyThe Lammy parade rolls on, here at FMR, and this time, it’s an award I coveted very much… the 2013 Lammy for Best Community Builder.

The reason I hold this one in such high esteem is that it’s easy to invert the title slightly and come away with “Best Community”. It only stands to reason that the Best Community Builder would have built the Best Community, no?

And I think the commenting community here IS the best. Second to none. Week in and week out, people share their thoughts and feelings on movies here in impressive numbers. There is some really high quality movie discussion going on, whether it’s after a review about a particular film, or in a Tossin’ It Out There, about a variety of movie related subjects. I’ve gotten to know many of you through this, and it’s been a been an absolute pleasure talking movies with you all. I owe you all for this one, whether you voted or not.

This is an award I’m proud to share with everyone, I’m so grateful that you all choose to discuss movies here so regularly!! *sniff* 😥

Congratulations also go to Ruth at Flixchatter, who was runner-up, and to Jessica at The Velvet Cafe, Nick at The Cinematic Katzenjammer, and Tyson at Head in a Vice!

The presentation video (below) was done by Joel Burman, the Shepherd of the Lamb, so a big thanks to him, as well!!
