The Anime Podcasters' Choice Awards
Considering the farce that was the American Anime Awards, we're going to run with this idea of creating our own awards body. I've already started sketching out exactly how to manage it, but I want your input. Thus, I ask the following broad questions.
What do -you- want out of this sort of thing?
What do you care about? What factors would make you pay attention to the Anime Podcasters' Choice Awards? What would you want to take home from them?
What kinds of awards should be given?
Should they be modeled after the Oscars? Should voice acting be a factor? DVD releases? Genres?
What anime should qualify?
Should we count American release dates? Japanese ones? Others? Fansubs? What would qualify an anime for consideration?
Who should nominate?
We will vote, but who should submit for nomination? Who should actually nominate? The industry? Creators? Ourselves? The Internet?
