STAR Awards and Total Requests

30 Apr

The nominations for this year’s STAR awards were announced this weekend, and The Reel Thing has been recognised in 3 categories!

1. Best Specialist Show

2. Best Solo Show

3. Best Listener Interaction Show

It was a very pleasant surprise and it is really an honour considering how amazing working on the show this past year has been. A big part of it has been my faithful listeners and followers, so a very big thank you to everyone who has listened to the show or read this blog over the past couple of months.

This year there is also the opportunity for the audience to nominate their favourite show for the People’s Choice award. Now though it would be absolutely darling of you to nominate The Reel Thing, I ask of you all one small favour….don’t. Or at least also nominate my other show, Follow the Snails, co-hosted with the one and only Matthew McGinlay.

You can find the nomination form at:


Eternal gratitude awaits you, for only 10 seconds of your time.

The STAR awards are on next Saturday and I’ll be tweeting the results live from the ceremony. Follow all the action @TheReel_Thing or check out the facebook page for updates as well. Keep those fingers crossed film fans, and get voting Follow the Snails for The People’s Choice award!

In other news, for the next show (aptly entitled The Reel Thing: Total Requests) I’m going to be giving all the power to the listeners and I will be taking your requests over the course of the next week to make up the playlist. So get thinking of what song from the movies you are dying to hear played live on the show.

There’ll be a facebook group soon for you to pop your requests on (you’ll find the link in the ‘next show’ section at the side of this page) or you can leave them in a comment on the bottom of this post. Please include what movie or television show the song is from, just in case my immense knowledge fails me for once.

So finally, remember to get voting for the People’s Choice award and get yourself involved in The Reel Thing’s requests show! Spread the word, and the love.
