Cinema Viewfinder Gets the Dardos Award

I am very excited to announce that Moon in the Gutter has awarded Cinema Viewfinder with the Dardos Award. Jeremy Richey at Moon in the Gutter has championed my site since soon after its inception. Jeremy has been a strong source of inspiration, not only because of our like-minded taste in films, but because he has always implicitly encouraged me to reach out to my community of fellow bloggers by setting a good example in that regard. So it is fitting that this award recognizes community outreach, as one can see here in the rules:
The Dardos Awards is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web. The Rules are:
1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
2) Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
While there are many I'd love to award (and in fact many have already received the Dardos), these are the five I have chosen. Jim Emerson at Scanners Ibetolis at Film for the Soul MovieMan0283 at The Dancing Image T.S. at Screen Savour Dean Treadway at Filmicability These folks give me new insight into the world of cinema on an almost daily basis, and all are great writers to boot. I look forward to their take on all things film in the future.

Thanks so much for the nice honor, Tony. I find the trackback to be interested on these sorts of things ... seeing who gave it to you, then who gave it to that person (and four others), then branching backwards from those five points. What an effective way to come into contact with new bloggers. Thanks again, and as always, I appreciate your kind words. (If only I could bestow the award in reverse - ha!)

Wow, thanks so much. This was a shock and a great honour, especially coming from a blog I hold in such high-esteem.

Thanks again for the kind words and this accolade. I'm well chuffed.

Thanks so much, Tony, for the shout-out. Given that you are so obviously on top of things in the film world, it's a magnificent honor.
