The community has contributed enormously towards making FXhome.com the place it is today. In order to say 'thank you' properly we are establishing the FXhome Awards, which will focus on recognising achievements in the cinema and forum during 2008. We intend this to become an annual event.

Starting on Friday we'll be inviting you to tell us your highlights of 2008. The top nominations in each category will then be announced and we'll move on to the voting stage, at which point you'll be able to choose the final winners.

The awards will be celebrating the best cinema and community achievements during 2008 – check back on Friday to find out how to get involved!

Hehe, I can see us in the future getting all the helpful stuff bunching up around awards season, just like all the best movies get released in December-January. razz


Glad everyone likes the idea! It's the first year we're doing this, so we're kinda testing the waters, but I think it'll work out pretty nicely. See you Friday for nominations!

2 days to go! We can't wait to see how this turns out either. biggrin

If nothing else, it'll be a great opportunity for a trip down memory lane.
