Hey don't know if anyone heard, but the Giant Bombcast just got nominated for the Podcast awards for best gaming podcast. Here's a link to the award nominations 
 
What do you think the chances are for GB to win the award? I noticed Rooster Teeth is up for both gaming and people's choice, so I hope Rooster Teeth's people's choice nomination doesn't eliminate GB's chances of winning the gaming award. But anyways, best of luck to the Bombcast and hope they win it! Wonder if anyone will be sent over to the award accept the award if GB wins.

so do we Brrap the Vote?

EDIT: Never mind. Thought this was some internet voting kind of award. That said, I doubt anyone from Giant Bomb would go to Vegas solely to pick up an award. Unless they got Kessler back as an intern. So yeah, Rooster Teeth probably wins both choices.

Hell yeah! Even though they are not as absolutely awesome as they sometimes used to be, this is still the best gaming podcast evarrr. They got my vote!

Ugh, I guess it´s up to some board of judges... meh.

Since Idle Thumbs is not on their list it is, by default, invalid (IMvHO)...

But, good luck to the Bombcast crew anyway...

Don't they get nominated for the podcast every year? Feels like it, at least.

I've never been a fan of Rooster Teeth. I listen to quite a few gaming podcasts but I can't bring myself to put that one in my regular rotation. I'll check out a few of the others listed but of the nominees I recognize, Bombcast is my favorite. I think that and Rooster Teeth are the most popular on the list so they both have a fair shot. Indoor Kids is Nerdist Industries so they may also have a chance even though they've gotten further and further away from games during the meat of their shows.

It looks like This is Only a Test got a nomination for Best Tech Podcast. Go Will and Norm! (Not that any of this matters. What the fuck are the Podcast Awards?)

Two ex-Whiskey podcasts and two Max Fun podcasts? Yeah, seems about right!

For serious, though, does anyone actually use a top podcasts service? And if so, do they find new podcasts using it?

They don't need to win any awards to know that they are the best podcast for games with so much personality and humor that actually has me excited when they release a podcast over 3 hours.

The Rooster Teeth podcast use to be good. Now it's just overloaded with shitty, uninteresting and unfunny newcomers.

But anyway, internet awards? Podcast awards? Who gives a shit?

@Kerned:An award show in Las Vegas that gives awards to websites that provide the best podcasts for whatever topic. Gaming, Movies, Sports, Education, Comedy, Science, you name it.  
 
I first heard about this from Spill.com, which is nominated for best movie podcast and that site definitely treats the awards with more love than Giantbomb. Then I looked up the awards and saw that GB was nominated. Just thought I could let the community know about this news.

It got a bit too pretentious lately for my taste. The archives still have some gold...game...gold...blum. When it was Chris, Jake and Steve, that was when it was the best.

This Week in Tech isn't nominated on that site at all, so I can't recognize those awards as legitimate.

(Edit: Is it because Leo Laporte is hosting? ..... anyway TWiT is the best overall podcast around, and I think one of the shows / networks that really jump started podcasting....Giant Bomb is my #2, Rooster Teeth #3, The Instance #4

@phrosnite: I haven't noticed any big change in quality. Bombcast has always been the bombcast.

I miss the days when internet awards consisted of little more than this:

No Caption Provided

Also, when is Giant Bomb going to be up for a CPotD? Or even a Top 500 pick from WebNow?

EDIT: Great, now I'm down the rabbit hole of looking at mid-90s websites.

I don't mind the RT podcast, but it should not be considered a gaming pod. They rarely mention games, and when they do it's for no more than 5 minutes at a time.

Agreed. I really like RT podcast, but the fact that it always gets considered as a gaming podcast in these things annoys me. It just takes away from the actual gaming podcasts.

I like my little bit of internet, Giantbomb and it's community, to exist outside of the internet and away from everyone else. I know this is an impossible task but I could give two shits about some other website. The Bombers know they are already awesome because of their evident passions for video games and tomfoolery. In my mind it doesn't need to be validated by any sort of competition.

In fact mentioning Giantbomb in comparison to any other website is a insult. There is only the Giantbomb, now comply.
