Now that it’s almost December, you’ve no doubt been thinking about the best entertainment offerings of the year. You also probably haven’t cast a vote for anything in weeks! So now is a perfect time for you to make your 2008 favorites official. It’s the third time we’ve turned to our readers to rank the best releases of the last twelve months. This year is more fun because Videogum is on board. So in addition to asking you to rate this year’s musical highlights, we wanna know the best TV show, movie, and Web video.
The categories are…
- Best Album
- Best Music Video
- Best Live Act
- Indie Rock Crushes
- Most Overrated Act
- Best Music Blog — Aside From Stereogum ;)
- Best TV Show
- Best Movie
- Best Web Video
As always, there are no nominees (except for the Web Video category), so the race is wide open. Once you start typing in your choice, the fields will suggest likely candidates based on your spelling. Please use this auto-fill if your desired pick pops up! It will save us so much time tallying, because formatting and spelling will be consistent. (You can vote for whatever you want, even if auto-fill doesn’t suggest it. Once a few people suggest the same thing, it automatically gets added to the auto-fill suggestions.) One randomly selected entrant will receive CDs of the Top 50 Best Album winners, courtesy of Beck’s, as well as a TBD gift from Videogum (UPDATE: Videogum is contributing a one-year 3-DVD-at-a-time subscription to Netflix.). So use your real e-mail address in the form so we can contact you if you win. One vote per person, and voting closes 12/2.
Coming soon: details on our Gummy Awards live event in NYC, which will double as Stereogum’s 5th Anniversary party.
