Long-time readers will remember that I'm a proud voter in the Muriel Awards, which in addition to being the greatest award ever named after a guinea pig, is actually one of the more interesting awards out there.
It doesn't echo the Oscar picks like everyone else does, but it doesn't ignore them either. Chances are if you're the Oscar front-runner (and a deserving one), you'll get quite a few votes. But, more often than not you won't win the coveted Muriel.
Curious? Well the awards have started over at the blog Our Science is Too Tight. Check them out!
