Received an e-mail just before bed last night, reprinted here in full, links added to relevant text:
My name is Paul Clark, and I'm the proprietor of the web site Silly Hats Only. For the past two years, I've been administrating a movie poll called The Muriel Awards. Beginning this year, we've decided to reward our favorite film-related web site, and our inaugural winner in this category is The House Next Door. Congratulations! Attached is a Muriel Awards sidebar banner to be displayed on THND if you so desire (ed. note: so desired, and added).
Here's a link to a lovely short piece written about the site by your 2008 Cannes correspondent Matt Noller: Once again, congratulations, and keep up the wonderful work.
Administrator, The Muriel Awards
My deepest thanks to Paul and the voters for the honor; to Matt Noller for his heartfelt appreciation; to Matt Seitz for startin' the whole damn thing; and to all House contributors past, present, and yet to come. If I may borrow Noller's phrasing: It's a beautiful day in our neighborhood.
