In an effort to streamline and improve this year’s Plutus Awards before the awards season began, the Plutus Awards Planning Committee made some changes to the structure of the Awards. To eliminate predictability and the effect of the popular vote, the voting process was changed to start all categories with a popular vote. A panel of bloggers would be selected to choose the finalists, and eventually the winners, from among the top vote-getters in each blog-related category. This is similar to the format used by the Academy Awards.
To compensate for the smaller focus on a blog’s popularity, the Committee created the People’s Choice Plutus Award. This will be awarded to the blogger with the highest number of votes, and more details about this award will be forthcoming.
Here is this year’s blogger panel as of today. There may be a few additions within the next week.
