Didn't help that Phlegm's contribution this year was a largely mediocre selection from his repertoire.
I can certainly see how that made a big difference in the voting for cinema posters.

Guessing some potential votes may have gone to The Birds.

Yeah... :( I mean, what was the Society of Illustrators thinking in giving him gold, it wasn't a Horkey at all...

ISO Horkey Sophie's Choice. Two versions but you can only buy one on the drop. Both will be nominated for 2015 MPotY.

The heaviest hitters seem to be dominating these awards every year, which is appropriate and fine, except this repetition prevents work by hot new artists from receiving due recognition at the end of a year. That may be where some of the frustration comes from.
I think the problem there is, where do you draw the line on new artist? Some people might have called Delort a "new" artist this year, while other have had pieces by him for years.
I agree with you, I am not sure how it might implemented. But it would be great if top new artists received high-profile recognition somehow.

As far as the significance of the annual EB awards, while not the Nobels or Ocars or Emmys or even Pollstar, I believe they matter quite a bit within our world. Many artists and those collectors who frequent the aftermarket would agree, I suspect.

Didn't realize people got so heated over awards that don't mean a thing.

Durieux watered down his own votes with a gazillion movie posters last year. Plus, no movie posters have been getting more hype over the past couple years than Horkey's LOTR series. So there's that explanation.

Limited Poster of The Year Awards, serious bidness.

Look, I'm sorry your picks didn't win this year. There's always next year. Glass half full, amirite?
