Peoples have spoken! From 2000 til 2006, I held an award contest for
best pop culture collectibles as voted on by the readers - that's you.
In 2007, I started a new industry awards contest, where the nominations
and voting is done by a panel of judges from the industry - companies, media, artists,
retailers and collectors.
Called the Poppies, it
was a hit...but folks missed not getting to vote too, and have their
opinions heard. So in 2008, I brought back the People's Picks, and gave
readers the chance to vote on the same set of nominees as the Poppies
judges, allowing comparisons to be made. Now it's time for the results
of the 2013
I've also done my own set of bests
and worsts of the year for
comparison, and I'm busy working on finishing up the Poppies results as
well, which I'll post later this week. Will the People's Picks be to
the Poppies what the Golden Globes are to the Oscars? Let's see!
