Here's the official word from TheOneRing.net:
Official One Ring Awards Voting: The voting booth is open! Unlike the 'Academy' you don't need to be a member of TORn, or even be attending ORC to vote! The only requirement is that you are a Tolkien fan. Winners will be announced at the official One Ring Award Ceremony, taking place January 15th 2005 at 9pm PT from The One Ring Celebration in Pasadena CA. Don't delay, award those people that have made a difference in the world of Tolkien last year! Click HERE for the shortlists.
Congratulations to the other nominees. And thanks to all of you for your unceasing support, encouragement, and assistance with this and other works. "Harry Potter is a Hobbit" was the product of many fruitful and stimulating discussions, and I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to my friends, colleagues, students, and fellow Middle-Earthers and Hogwartsians. I am so very grateful for all of you!
(Note: special thanks to the brilliant aelfgifu, without whom I might have missed this news thanks to my "beginning-of-semester haze.")
