Welcome to December! Arguably my favorite month of the year. The lights, the excitement, the long hours at work… well, not that last one. But this year I’m exited for another reason: this is the first year I’m holding the Drama Awards, my own way of recognizing the best dramas 0f the year. I’ll break down how the awards will go in a minute.
I don’t want the whole month to be about dramas though, so I’m also going to celebrate the twelve days of Christmas… every other day, that is. I want to share my top twelve best memories from 2016, to give some much deserved appreciation to the people and God who make my life amazing. Even days are Christmas, odd days are dramas–so you know when to tune in if you’re not interested in one or the other (psh, they’re both great!)
But here’s how the awards break down: one post (this one) to introduce the categories and the contenders; then one post per category to announce the winner on each odd numbered day. I’m only nominating the dramas I watched more than half of. Dramas are judged on how well they fit the category, connection to the characters, and watchability. Doesn’t make sense? Eeeh, it will as we go along. Without further ado, the categories!
