CUPID AND EROS NOMINATED FOR 5 INDIE INTERTUBE AWARDS

On February 24th,  Indie Intertube, a podcast and webcast devoted to covering Web Series, New Media, and the places they intersect with traditional entertianment, announced the nominees in their 2nd annual Indie Intertube Awards.

I'm honored that "Cupid and Eros" was nominated in five categories.

  • Best Actor, Comedy - Josh Heine (Cupid)
  • Best Acress, Comedy - Jo Bozarth (Eros)
  • Best Additional Content
  • Smexiest (Smart +Sexy = Smexy) Actress - Jo Bozarth

And perhaps most exciting of all

  • Best Dramedy

The Dramedy category is new this year and I'm thankful for it.  I definately consider C&E a comedy overall, but "comedy" in web series often means much broader humor than the show aims for. 

It's nice that the ladies of Indie Intertube chose to create a category for shows like ours and fellow nominees "Downsized" "Fumbling Through The Pieces" "Vampire Mob" "Leap Year" "Awakward Embraces" and "In The Rough" that straddle that line between humor and drama.

I'm also proud to say that C&E Editor, and my co-creator on "The Silver Lake Badminton and Adventurers Club," Matthew Smith is nominated for "Best Editing" for his work on "The Guild"  And Taryn O'Neill, who appears in episodes 7-9 of C&E, is nominated alongside Jo Bozarth in the "Smexiest Actress" category for her work in "Once Upon".

The awards will be streamed live, Sunday March 11th at 4 PM PST on MingleMediaTV

*An additional bit of fun in all of this is that Indie Intertube asked us to be one of the presenters when nominees were anounced last month.  Cupid and Eros took time from their work schedule to announce the nominees in 7 categories.  You can watch the announcement video (which also features creators from other great Web Series) here.
