It's Award Season!

It's Time for the 2009 BCPGOTY Awards!

We're going to try something a little different this year. As there are plenty of worthy contenders for each award, we decided to post a list of all the official nominees for each BCPGOTY Award. That way all our faithful listeners can peruse the list in advance and decide how best to tear down the logic behind any and all of our choices. You may notice there is no actual nominee list for the BCPGOTY itself. This is simply our misguided attempt to retain a bit of secrecy and surprise for the night of the event. So without further ado, we present to you, the Nominees for the 2009 BCPGOTY Awards!
