After months of preparation, I am very pleased to announce that this week, I will begin releasing the results of the Hulu Awards (aka, the Hulies).
For those of you who may not know, the Hulies are awards given to Hulu.com content in a variety of categories. For each category, a panel of 25 journalists and bloggers gave careful consideration to the eligible content before narrowing the field down to five nominees. There was also an audience voting component that allowed the voting public at large to ensure that their favorite pick was included in the list of final nominees.
Since we received an overwhelming audience response of 20,000 votes cast, we'll also be recognizing the top audience pick in each category. Sometimes this is the same as the actual Hulie winner, and sometimes it's not.
Eligible content for each category was posted on Hulu during it's first full year of existence, October 2007-October 2008.
Please note that, for each award, the audience voting is still open until the day that the results are actually posted. So, if you haven't voted yet for your favorites, please consider clicking on the category in the list on the right, and making your voice heard. Some of the races are very tight, and one vote actually can make a difference.
Thank you to all the panelists and audience members who participated!
