    Yeah, I have read 4 of the 5 nominees already and find it a tough decision to where to place my vote even if I don’t read the 5th.

    No offense to Helen, but she has solid competition.

    Paul: we have a saying here in NZ, derived from the national sport: “all credit to the other team and rugby was the winner on the night.”

    I think we can probably extend the analogy to the Morningstar award: all credit to all the contenders and let us hope that epic-heroic fantasy will be the winner on the night. :)
