It's been 15 years since the black-haired warrior woman and the strong, lovable bard began their journey together, and since then, we have shared in their adventures that have brought so many people together from all over the world. Let's celebrate this wonderful journey by deciding what is the best of the best of our beloved show.
There are three different sections: General, Subber and Shipper. Each section will be broken down by season and we will begin with nominations and voting for season 1 before heading onto the other seasons. Then once those winners are chosen, they will be put into a final poll to find the winners of the Best of the Best of all things Xena.
Today is the opening for the XOC Chakram Awards: Season 1
You can post up to five nominations for each category. Feel free to post nominations for as many categories as you would like. Nominations for Season 1 will be open for three weeks and will be closed on June 28 at 12:00am XOC time.
The polls will take place from July 1-15, for two weeks and winners will be announced on July 17. Then season 2 will begin the following week and so on.
A new forum has been opened specifically for the Chakram Awards (with each category--general, subber and shipper--as its own subforum) so all the polls and nomination threads don't flood the main, subber and shipper forums.
This thread will stay stickied and featured at the top of the forum so everyone knows where the nominations and voting are taking place.
