It's been a few weeks, we've had time to digest the series finale a bit, but it's fresh enough in our minds where it's time to channel all those emotions and thoughts into something else. Yes, it's time to do our annual awards!
Ever since season seven, a certain number of award categories have been set aside and offered to you, the Supernatural fans, for judgement. It gives the fandom that chance to be heard, just because we care. Before I can come up with a final vote though, we need nominations!
Every year I get the same complaints come voting time, "Why didn't you nominate XXX for this?" Because it didn't come up during the nominations, that's why! If you want it on the vote, now is the chance to enter your favorites. If we don’t get enough nominations in a category, then the rest become admin’s choice. Do you really want to see that happen? I can get pretty damned creative!
I have pre-selected 16 award categories where you, the Supernatural fan, will eventually select the winner. Just list your nominations for each category in the comments.
Fan vote results will be announced first as part of our "Supernatural Season Fifteen Awards" series. As with prior years, there will be several Editor's Choice awards as well. You know I have some pretty strong opinions and this is my platform to be heard.
Below are the categories. I've had to throw out one category this year because the answer is so obvious and the award will be handed out now. Here is that category:
Most Tear-Jerking Moment in Season 15 - The barn scene, aka Dean's death scene, in "Carry On" goes onto being one of the greatest, if not the greatest tearful brotherly farewells in the history of this show. It was a Jared and Jensen masterpiece like none other. There is just no other contest, especially in this season.
Here are the other categories for your consideration:
Best Season 15 Episode
Worst Season 15 Episode
Funniest Scene in Season 15
Best Brotherly Bonding Scene in Season 15
Best "Kick it in the Ass" Moment in Season 15
Best Guest Star in Season 15
Best Ending to an Episode in Season 15
Worst Ending to an Episode in Season 15
Best Quote in Season 15
Best Shout Out to Pop Culture in Season 15
Worst Crime Against Supernatural by the Writers in Season 15
Best Gratuitous/Totally Sexy Moment in Season 15
Best Plot in Season 15 (Pick episode plots or multi episode arcs - the season long myth arc doesn't count)
Worst Plot in Season 15 (Pick episode plots or multi episode arcs - the season long myth arc doesn't count)
Best Use of Classic Rock/Any Song in Season 15 (Note, OTHER than "Carry on Wayward Son". I know it defined the finale, but it's also been the prior 14 seasons. I'm looking for something unique to this season)
Best Callback to Previous Supernatural Seasons in Season 15
We do accept write in categories, but it's got to be a pretty good one to be considered. Three years ago "Best Callback to Previous Supernatural Seasons" was a write in. Now it's a regular category! This is your chance to live the dream.
Now for the fun part, the nominating. Remember, be creative! Try to remember those obscure episodes and references that gave you a chuckle or got you to shed a tear during initial airing and have been forgotten about since. Not sure what those moments are? Check out our season 15 episode guide. Perhaps that will jog the memory.
Nominations will only be until the end of the year. Nominations close at 11:59 pm ET on Thursday, December 31st. The most popular nominations in each category will be chosen and used for the final fan vote (five to seven per category).
Okay, ready, set go! Let the nominations begin!
