2021 CHU Member Choice Awards - Nominations

I thought this would be fun to do but let’s first start off with some nominations before we do actual voting of our favorites.

Here are the categories and the goal is for everyone interested in participating to put 1 and only 1 nomination in each category (so choose wisely your top favorite nomination in each category). On December 30th, I’ll tally up the names and the top 5 in each category will go on to the voting round for our 2021 CHU Member Choice Awards.

Remember, this applies only to 2021. The only time it can dip further back prior is if it’s part of an ongoing series, like best ongoing continuing series of 2021, etc.

You can copy and paste the bold categories into your replies to do your nominations. I tried to not overload the categories as it can start to get a little redundant. If you think there’s a category we should include, please do let me know sooner rather than later to include it so most won’t skip.

Very humorous and funny but I wanna try to keep this nomination list clean, so it’s easier to tally the results for the voting polls. :slight_smile:
