Announcing The Nominees For The First Bwoggie Awards

Written by

One-time Bwoggie nominee Lee “Prezbo” Bollinger, seen here with the world-famous Bwoggies statuette, nicknamed “Alma Pater.”

The apotheosis of awards season is upon us. No, I’m not talking about the Academy Awards this Sunday. There’s a new set of awards in town, coincidentally also being given out on Sunday: the Bwoggie Awards, the categories and nominees for which can be found below.

The crop of nominees for this year’s Bwoggies was compiled by the tireless tastemakers here at Bwog, but we don’t have the final say here. Today, our social media team will be posting all the categories as polls on our Twitter, and you, the vox populi, will decide the winners. Watch this space (i.e. Bwog.com) for the winners to be announced on Sunday. Oscar? Oscar who? The Bwoggies are in town.

Again, head to Bwog’s Twitter to cast your votes!
