Backlots has won a CiMBA award!!






Well, we’ve done it!

Remember about 2 weeks ago when I announced that Backlots was up for an award from the Classic Film Blog Association? I am pleased to announce that we won, tying with another very quality post  by Classic Film and TV Cafe.

I was casually checking my email, when I received a message from Rick (from Classic Film and TV Cafe, and also one of the moderators of the CMBA), likening the two of us to Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand. Anyone familiar with the 1968 Oscars will know that this is a reference to the tie win of Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn for Funny Girl and The Lion in Winter, respectively, so I rushed over to the CMBA website, where I discovered the results, with Backlots and Classic Film and TV Cafe tied for Best Classic Movie Discussion.

Thank you to everyone at the CMBA, and to all my readers. I also send my congratulations to my co-winner, Rick. This is a real achievement!

  5. Lara,
    I’m so happy for you – and congratulations! So…which one are you, Kate or Barbra?!?
    Much deserved, by the way…

  6. Thank you! I think I’m more Barbra than Kate–Kate is way too much of a self-confident New England Yankee to match with my insecure neurotic Jewish background. I really appreciate your comments, now and always! Thanks for being such a loyal reader!

  7. Congratulations, Lara! TheLadyEve wants to have a party, and I agree! It’s fun to win, isn’t it? This is my first, and I feel honored. Your article was definitely deserving!

  8. There were some wonderful articles in this year competition. You deserved the wonderful award for your, Best Classic Movie Discussion . Congrats!!

  9. Thank you!! We should definitely have a party–how would we go about doing that? I think some party idea brainstorming is in order!
