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!
