I’m thrilled to announce that “The Bela Lugosi Blog” has been nominated for “BEST WEBSITE OR BLOG OF 2016″ in the fifteenth Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards. It’s a real honour to be nominated for the fifth year in a row, especially as the nominations are selected from suggestions by horror fans, professionals and enthusiasts offered at the Classic Horror Film Boards. I have also been nominated for BEST ARTICLE for ‘Dracula and the It Girl’ (a look at Bela’s mysterious relationship with Clara Bow) in SCARY MONSTERS #100.
Over the past year I’ve been busy updating the various pages of the blog with some of the thousands of stills, newspaper articles, advertisements and reviews I have amassed during the course of my research into Bela Lugosi’s life and work. I hope to share as many as possible with you during the course of 2017.
If you have enjoyed the blog or the article, I would be grateful if you would take the time to cast a vote for them by sending an email stating that you wish to vote for Vampire Over London: The Bela Lugosi Blog as the “BEST WEBSITE OR BLOG OF 2016” and ‘Dracula and the It Girl’ (a look at Bela’s mysterious relationship with Clara Bow) by Andi Brooks in SCARY MONSTERS #100 to David Colton at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Sunday, April 16, 2017. You must include your name for the vote to be valid.

The ‘Rondo’ award itself features a bust sculpted by illustrator Kerry Gammill, and cast by modeler Tim Lindsey. The statuette is a miniature version of the bust of Rondo Hatton seen in the 1946 Universal film, House of Horrors.
