2014 Nigerian Blog Awards Nominees are...


NOT ME!

LOL!

Awww, you guys, I'm so sorry. I know a bunch of you nominated me for one or more of the different categories, but unfortunately, we didn't make it. This must be how David Oyelowo and the whole Selma cast felt on Oscar nomination morning this year. And how Richard Gere feels - he's never been nominated for an Oscar. 

And Steve Buscemi..


And Billy Crystal...


And Marilyn Monroe...


And ScarJo amongst others.


So I'm in good company, right? Not that this is the Oscars or anything, but you catch my drift, aye?

*Although technically, I'm part of the African Naturalistas which is currently nominated for Best Beauty or Hair blog.*

Anyways, the point is, we don't always get what we hope for and while it can be (and IS) disappointing (let's not lie), it's not the end of the world. We have other things to celebrate, and this takes off a little bit of pressure and tension for the next couple of weeks. Either way, I know who I shall be voting for in the different categories. Congratulations to all the nominees - best wishes to all of you :D

BTW, there isn't really a weekend post this week cos my plans for yesterday fell flatter than a pancake! But I have to show off Cakes' cakes, so look out for that post.

  10. Hey Berry!
    You still remain my favorite blog ok.
    And as for the nomination thingy I guess some people didn't vote or forgot to cos they felt you had more than enough not knowing that every vote counts.
