So, final votes in….. here we go.

Best Art Blog
SCENE AND HERD
ART FAG CITY
ANITA’S ‘ART’ BLOG
CATHEDRAL OF SHIT!
Winner: ANITA. We can never compete with such a high profile line up; Madonna, Stormin’ Norman Rosenthal, Nick Serota, Jon Bon Jovi, err, Graham Hudson, David Blandy and Max Wigram. So the extremes of the art celebrity scale then.
The “Really? Is That Actually Good?! You Rate That? Huh.” Award to An Artist
Winner? All of them, in their own special way.
Interesting, No women in there. Can you think of any moody women gallerists? Answers on a postcard (or comment, whichever you prefer). Oh, these lot, who’s won you say? God I’m bored of this. They can all win, miserable bastards.
and finally, the Cathedral Of Shit Award for the Person We’d Most Like To Just Change Career or Disappear Entirely As They Don’t Even Serve Us As An Object Of Mockery.
Special Mention for 2009 goes to SARAH THORNTON. For being special and talented.
