Follow Fridays!: Duke and the Movies

Duke & the Movies is the blogging home of Mr. Sam Fragoso.

It’s safe to say that Sam is an accomplished and well-respected blogger. Duke & the Movies took home this year’s Lammy for “Best Running Feature” for his series “Battle of the Directors”. He was also the runner-up for “The Braniac Award”. Additionally, his blog also received nominations for “Best Reviewer” and “Best Blogathon”. Hell, even his “For Your Consideration” poster did well this year, making it (I believe) to the semi-finals in the FYC Poster tournament.
