Actor's Career Draft / LAMMY Nominations


We got nominated for a 2012 LAMMY Award!!! Over the weekend, I was on the Lambcast podcast to take part in the inaugural Actor’s Career Draft. Each person had to create their own Tom Cruise marathon with the films available on the board. I opted to go with a particular theme when making my selections as you will hear in the episode.

While on the show, I was fortunate enough to help with the 2012 LAMMY nominations announcement. The LAMMYS are awards in which film bloggers vote for their peers in a variety of categories. To my surprise, Big Thoughts from a Small Mind got nominated for a LAMMY in the Best Festival/Award Coverage category. You can listen to both the Tom Cruise draft and the full list of LAMMY nominations in the player below:



On behalf of the team here at Big Thoughts from a Small Mind, I would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who nominated our site. Be sure to visit The LAMB over the next few days, when the final voting officially opens, to vote for the sites you would like to see win in the various categories. Also, be sure to vote for which Tom Cruise marathon you like the best in the Actor's Career Draft poll. The video below provides examples of why I think you should vote for my "theme inspired" list of Tom Cruise films…remember it is all about the theme:

  1. That video was awesome. Pretty incredible that there are just 8 non-running films over his whole career. Though, one could say that posting this video kind of kills your theme as well. Using this video as a guide, I have a Cruise Running theme, too, and so does everyone else. ;)

    I just put the poll up on the LAMB. http://www.largeassmovieblogs.com/2012/05/lambcast-addendum-vote-on-our-actors.html

    1. Crazy to think how much running he has done on screen.

      I had not thought of the possibility of the video increasing the competition’s odds. Having said that, I still think my list has some of his most memorable running moments.

    1. I feel the same way about your nomination. You were one of the three sites I voted for in that category.

    1. The funny part of the video for me was seeing him run in Born on the 4th of July. I got completely forgotten about that scene otherwise I would have selected that film in the draft.
