Top Five Finalists In Each Of The 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards Categories Revealed!

2010 Canadian Weblog AwardsThe 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards' 49 jurors handed in all of their scores for the 457 nominated weblogs by November 21st, and since then I have spent my time tabulating the outcomes and compiling lists and wiggling with anticipation.

It's true. I wiggle with anticipation. I'm six.

I added up the last of the numbers and compiled the last of the lists last night, and it is like Christmas exploded in my brain. I know that the timeline laid out for the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards dictates that the top five finalists in each category be announced on December 1st, but I am just too excited to wait that whole extra several hours. I just can't hold it inside any longer, so I am going to commit sacrilege and tell you who the finalists are right now.

The top five finalists in each of the 37 categories in the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards are as follows, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each category will be determined by jury over the month of December and will be announced on January 1, 2011. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: The People's Choice category will be up for public vote again in the final round, and the poll will be available for voting between December 21 and 28.
