Purdey cropAnother star-studded year has rolled around, and we find ourselves treading the red carpet once again, confident in the expectation of a BAFTA, an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

So much talent, so many costly productions, so much drama… I’m thinking purely of myself here.  This is the second year of the PAWS – Purdey’s Awards for Worldwide Stardom – invented so that my acting abilities receive the recognition that they deserve. 

Like last year, I’m generously allowing my fluffy friend, Ponyo, to have a chance of fame.  I notice that Ponyo’s roles have been fairly passive of late.  You won’t see her doing her own stunts!  Two words, Pon:  Workout DVD.

Anyway, all you have to do is vote for me… I mean, vote for your favourite movie and favourite actor.   The winner will receive a beautiful golden fir cone, and hopefully a largish piece of cheeeese.  Ah, cheeese…

To cast your vote, please use the ‘Comments’ form at the bottom of the page, and feel free to leave some praise, too.  I don’t mind if it’s lavish.    The winner will be announced when I’m in the lead, sometime in February.   Thank you for voting!
