D.J. Edwardson | 57 comments The Silmarillion Awards are a sort of online "fantasy oscars", but instead of awarding authors or books, the awards are given to the characters themselves.

Categories include, Most Epic Hero, Most Nefarious Villain, and Most Faithful Friend. Anyone can nominate their favorite characters and the top five nominees will be voted on in one week. The top vote getters in each category will be announced between July 16-28. The awards, "the silmarils" are each presented by a different character from The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit.

There are physical prizes for readers as well being given away, but mostly it's just a great way to celebrate fantasy literature, learn about new books, and have some fun.

Here's a link to The Most Magnificent Dragon award nominations. From there you can find links to the other award nomination pages:

D.J. Edwardson | 57 comments The nominees are in! Time to vote to see who will win this year's silmarils. And we're giving away more prizes this time around, including a map of Middle-earth, a replica of the One Ring, and a book on Tolkien trivia.

Something for everyone. Check it out!
