I interrupt my series of posts commemorating the 60th anniversary of Cinerama at this point because the 2012 CiMBA Awards from the Classic Movie Blog Association have been announced — and Cinedrome has been honored with “Best Classic Movie Article” for my six-part series on Orson Welles’s The Magnificent Ambersons.

I won’t bore everybody with an endless Oscar-style acceptance speech, but I do want, gratefully, to thank my fellow CMBA members for this recognition, and to acknowledge the work of the many Welles biographers and scholars, especially Simon Callow and Prof. Robert L. Carringer, whose previous work contributed so much to my own and made my research such a pleasure. My conclusions may have differed from theirs, but I couldn’t have done it without them.

Links to the six parts of my Ambersons article are below. Meanwhile, you can go here for a complete list of CiMBA winners and nominees. Warmest congratulations to them all — and again, a grateful “Thank you!” to my colleagues for this honor.

Minority Opinion: The Magnificent Ambersons (January 13 – March 28, 2012):



Cinedrome Wins 2012 CMBA Award — 13 Comments

  1. Jim, all of us here at Team Bartilucci HQ are absolutely thrilled about your CiMBA-winning six-part series about THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS! While all your Cinedrome posts are totally entertaining and enlightening, we could tell that this series was especially close to your heart. We wish you the heartiest and happiest of congratulations, Jim – you deserve it!

  2. Well Jim, that's just wonderful…no surprise to us, though! It was a wonderful series, and I'm glad it was widely recognized as such. Congratulations!!

  3. Jim, congratulations on the well-deserved honor for your extraordinary "Magnificent Ambersons" series. I'm not surprised, however, that the rest of the CMBA members felt as I did about your contribution (and I'm still looking for Miss Tatlock's Millions).

  4. Thanks, Kevin! And Gypsy, don't give up on Miss Tatlock's Millions; you won't be sorry. In fact, if you're ever in my neck of the woods…
