First Annual Fangirl Award Nominations

These nominations do not reflect the opinions of the editors at All Things Fangirl, but rather the Fangirl Academy, made up of 50 lovely ladies who follow us on Twitter, read the blog, or know us in real life. In the case of a tie for the final slot in a category, the ATFG editors acted as the tie-breaker. Some ladies couldn't get their ballots in on time, so we padded the roster by recruiting some geeky friends and neighbors to help out, but the Academy will be voting on the winners.

Ballots to pick the winners will go out this week & the results will be announced March 4th!

* - Editor's Choice - Certain categories have extra nomination. These additions represent something one of the editors at ATFG feels passionately about that we want to encourage you to check out! Often, the editor's choice was in 6th place for the nomination.

This is magical. Most of my favorites made it on there plus all of the ones that I didn't think of that are also awesome.
