4th Annual Indie Soap Awards Nominations Announced Today
http://www.welovesoaps.net/2012/12/4th-indie-soap-award-nominations.html

- Surge of "extraordinary" shows this year; committee "inspired;" faced with "excruciating choices."
- DEVANITY and OUT WITH DAD most nominated drama series; HUSBANDS, THE BLOODY MARY SHOW, and PRETTY most nominated comedies.
- Winners to be announced Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at legendary awards show.


New York, NY (December 17, 2012) - Could this be a turning point in the history of Television? The entire world wide web?

"After breaking all these records (to begin with, we had the most submissions ever and the most nominations ever) we faced a daunting task. Excruciating choices. Haggling and horse trading were at an all-time high. But the quantity of high quality made it all worthwhile. We were definitely inspired.

"But honestly, we barely avoided fisticuffs during the final meeting! There just has never been so much carnage after reducing each category to only six nominees," said We Love Soaps founder Roger Newcomb.

"We used to argue on behalf of a potential nominee, 'it's so good, it could be on TV.' This time, to make the cut, it had to be, 'this is excellent, it's better than anything on TV!' It's extraordinary. I think we've passed an historic landmark for the genre. In so many ways, the shows on this list are better than the scripted, serialized programming on network Television. Than anything on network Television."

Over 40 web series received at least one nomination. Almost 100 were submitted. To be considered, among other qualifications, shows had to be independent, scripted, professional and serialized. And, they had to broadcast at least three episodes in 2012. In addition to general excellence in TV programming, a special premium is placed on series which follow the mission of the Awards' charity sponsor, the Indie Series Network. Their mission is to bring quality, independently-produced TV series, with socially relevant messaging and artistic merit, to under-served audiences.

Happily, everyone who worked on one of the series that was accepted for consideration, whether nominated or not, is invited (and encouraged) to attend the enormous, star-studded, industry-only gala celebration planned for February 19, 2013 at New World Stages in New York City. All-access Guest Passes for the event (really a series of events) just went on sale - at a discount, early bird rate, for now. Series will all be able to sit together for the actual Award Presentation Ceremony as long as they reserve their assigned seats before January 5.

NOW, THE NOMINEES
DEVANITY and OUT WITH DAD led all drama series with nine nominations each. HUSBANDS, THE BLOODY MARY SHOW and PRETTY each had nine nominations on the comedy side.
