already gave you my picks
for Best (and Worst - sort of my own personal Poopies) for 2009, but
I'm just one man - who really cares what I think? Then I gave you the
results of the People's Picks,
a plethora of collectors and fans from all aspects of the market voted
for their favorites of 2009. And now it's time for the Poppies, and the
invariable discussion and comparison of all the results.
is the third year of the Poppies, the only industry pop culture
awards. This year, 138
from all aspects of the industry - companies, collectors, media,
artists, and retailers - came together to first nominate and then vote
on their favorites in 15 different categories. This is the round up of
those results, with some comments from the judges, and my own personal
commentary and comparison. If you
have any comments or questions, feel free to drop me a line.
you'd like to check the results of my picks, the Poppies or the
People's Picks from
previous years, check these links:
only included a photo of each of the
category winners here, I also added in links for the top three in each
category (after Best Company) so you can see what they
look like, in case you haven't seen them or don't
get to those Poppies results!
