Who Needs a VMA When I Can Get a Blog Award!

Standard

I do know there are a lot of people who seem to be in my corner, and that’s, of course, wonderful. I’m really more interested in the nomination than in the award, because I think the nomination just puts you within a group of outstanding actors. – Morgan Freeman

IN THIS CASE….. BLOGGERS!
