British Fantasy Awards 2021
Wow, it’s been a while hasn’t it! Sorry for the long silence, since – checks last blog post date and chokes slightly –19th May I’ve been; working on our new business! Organising Little Terror’s christening for next weekend! Getting a new job on a dairy farm! Dying my hair – again! All of these deserve posts in their own right, so I’ll skip over them for now and make a mental note to start blogging more regularly again – anyway, on to today’s topic: the British Fantasy Awards 2021!
The British Fantasy Awards are held every year to celebrate the best fantasy/horror from the previous year – there’s a huge range of categories, so be sure to check out all the nominees on the Society’s website.
Now onto the big news…
I am so so thrilled to announce that I’m on the jury for the Best Film/TV Production category! I nearly cried when I got the email to say I’d been selected, I was so happy. Since I joined the British Fantasy Society at the start of the year I’ve been itching to help out somehow, so when the callout came to apply to be on the jury for the awards, I knew I had to give it my best shot. I’ll be working with some fantastic people from a wide range of backgrounds and industries as we decide on the best film/tv show from the past year. Looks like I’ve got my summer watchlist all planned out!
The shortlist for the Best Film/TV Production category is:
– Birds of Prey
– The Boys: What I Know (Season 2, episode 8)
– The Haunting of Bly Manor: The Romance of Certain Old Clothes (Season 1, episode 8)
– The Invisible Man
– The Lighthouse
– Saint Maud
There are some cracking titles on this list that I can’t wait to get my teeth into (or re-watch!). I’ve also got some more news from the society, but I’m not entirely sure if I’m allowed to share it yet or not, so I’ll keep hold of it for now and let you know as soon as I can. Alas, it’s not that I’ve been shortlisted for their short story competition – mainly because time ran away from me and I didn’t get the chance to submit my short story. Oh well, I’ll keep hold of it, polish it, and mark it on my calendar to submit for next year!
Now…let’s get watching! gets popcorn, turns on tv, isn’t seen again for six weeks
Til next time,
