Thanks to your support The Vincent Price Journal: My First Trip Abroad won Best Blog 2013 at the 12th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards on 12 May 2014. Regarded as the Oscars of the horror community, this is a huge honour and a real testament to fans like myself wanting to preserve the legacy of Vincent Price online.
The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards are given out each year in a wide variety of categories, from Film and TV Presentation to Fan Event and Favorite Horror Host. The awards are named for Rondo Hatton, a prolific actor whose distinct facial features (a result of acromegaly) made him a mainstay in several B-grade horror films in the 1930s and 1940s. As such, the trophies given out at the ceremony resemble the actor’s portrayal of The Creeper from 1946’s House of Horrors.
