We're proud to introduce this year's finalists, carefully selected by our blue-ribbon panel. Click the following links to vote for the 2010 Malkin Award, Moore Award, Yglesias Award, Hewitt Award, Von Hoffmann Award, Mental Health Break Of The Year, and Face Of The Year. Also - for the first time - Chart Of The Year and Hathos Alert are on the ballot. The Shut Up And Sing finalists have likewise been announced; it's now up to you to pick the worst pop song designed to reflect a profound moral conscience. I.e. the smuggest, most pretentious pop song in history.
Among the various contenders for the prizes, a roster of the big names in political and cultural discourse: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Kos, Justin Bieber, Bill Donohue, Jim Manzi, Glenn Reynolds, Sean Penn, Bryan Fischer, Keith Olbermann, Bristol Palin And The Situation, Larry Kudlow and ... Andrew Sullivan.
We're giving readers a week to pick the winners for these prestigious prizes. The polls will close on the first of the year. You picked many of the entries; we just marshalled the very best/worst for your selection.
