Alex’s End Of Year Prizes 2018: The Nominations (plus your chance to vote in our Readers Choice!)

And just like that, we’re in the final few weeks of yet another year. Which can only mean it’s time for yours truly to announce the runners and riders for our annual End of Year Prizes on the blog!

If you’ve missed this for the last four years, then fear ye not, for we shall explain. Every Boxing Day, we do a special blog post honouring those we’ve absolutely loved in the last twelve months with some spangly accolades. This is usually done while wearing a Christmas jumper and eating as many leftover roast potatoes/Celebrations as possible.

And aside from our usual categories hand picked by us, once again, you, the lovely readers of this here blog, get to pick your winner for a special award we introduced for last year’s ceremony, called the Reader’s Choice award! It’s a bit like the Best Haircut award at Smash Hits Poll Winners Party (only not won every flipping year by Ronan Keating).

The bad news is that whilst last year’s winner Richard Osman won’t be making it a double this year (because he’s not nominated), the good news is this award is back! Back! Back! And you get to decide which famous face from our shortlist of five walks away with the title on 26th December. And you can start voting right now at this corner of the interweb, right up until midnight on Boxing Day, when the voting closes.

And without any ado, here are this year’s nominations for Alex’s End of Year Prizes 2018…
