Congratulations to the nominees! Great list. Very tough choice in some of the categories - shoe-in in others. And one I have absolutely no clue about :o)

Dumb question, but who gives out the the Spinetinglers? I'm not familiar with them.
This is only the second year of Spinetingler Magazine giving out awards.
