So, as promised here are my picks for this year’s SPJA awards. Though as usual, just a couple of notes about my picks. I’ve already deleted every category that I don’t feel I can give a good enough opinion on (such as all of the manga categories). If I even tried to make a pick there I’d just be taking a stab in the dark. So here we go… here are where my votes and predictions are going to lie this year.
The nominees for this year’s SPJA awards have been announced via the official site and it looks like it’s going to be a big year for ‘Gurren Lagann’ and ‘Death Note’. ‘Gurren Lagann’ leads the nominations this year with nominations in eight different categories (including ‘Best Television Series’) with Death Note a close second with nominations in six categories.
Familiar names are also spotting this year’s list with Jun Fukuyama picking up his second Best Actor nomination for his role as Lelouch in ‘Code Geass‘ (Fukuyama was nominated last year in the same category) while Michelle Ruff managed to escape with two separate Best Actress nominations for her roles as both Yoko (Gurren Lagann) and Rukia (Bleach: Memories of Nobody). The full list of nominations is below the cut and later tonight I’ll be posting my winner predictions. If you want to get a head start on your own picks though, voting has already begun here.
