rondo awardIt’s time to vote for the Rondo Awards, and that means it’s time to vote for The Blob! This year, Criterion Collection’s recent blu-ray release of the film, featuring a brand new 4K digital restoration is one of the films nominated in the “Best Classic Horror DVD/Blu-Ray” category.

Additionally, BlobFest has once again been nominated for two Rondo Awards in the categories of Best Convention and Best Fan Event for the Friday Night Runout Re-enactment! Long time BlobFest guests, the ghoulish gents from Ghoul-A-Go-Go, as well as relative newcomer Mr. Lobo are both nominated for “Favorite Horror Host.”

Named after 1930s and 40s horror movie actor Rondo Hatton, the Rondos are a fan-voted award honoring “significant achievement in the genre during the year.” Think of them as the classic horror film equivalent of the People’s Choice Awards.

BlobFest has been nominated in these two categories in the past but let’s make this the year that they win!
