The moment is finally here! The nominations have been tabulated, now it's time to vote. Below there are 17 categories that give you, the fan, the power to choose the good, bad, and indifferent moments of "Supernatural" season 12.
I'm sure a couple of you very estute fans are going, "Wait a second, there were only 16 categories in the nominatons." That's true, but a couple of fans chose to submit write in categories, and one by paladinteacher was way too good to pass up. I could easily come up with enough good choices for it. So you'll notice that as our "Bonus Write-In Question" at the end of the voting.
The rules are simple, there are none. Once you submit your vote, refresh the page and you can vote again as often as you'd like. Results will be hidden until the winners are revealed, which will be in a couple of weeks. Voting will run until Sunday, July 16th at 11:59 pm ET.
I'm going to warn, it may take a minute for all the questions to load on each page. Please be patient. Also, as a standard disclaimer, remember, "Supernatural" fans are an opinionated lot. Some of these questions may offend those who choose to be less critical or those that don't think we're being critical enough! Plain and simple, if you don't like a question, feel free to skip it. All these responses are based on fan choices made during the nomination process (with a couple extra thrown in by yours truly to beef up the selections) and they're there to gauge fan opinion across a very wide spectrum. They're bound to be controversial in places. Also, if an option is missing that you think should have been there, that is the importance of being involved in the nomination process. I only can go with what I'm given!
The nominations were collected, the votes have been cast, the results have been tabulated, and the winners are now official! I’m proud to announce the winners, runner-ups, editor's choice and maybe a few honorable mentions just for kicks for the 17 categories of The Winchester Family Business Supernatural Season 12 Fan Vote Awards.
Months of waiting in eager, speculative anticipation and I, for one, was not disappointed. As the rock-accompanied recap of the last 23 episodes of the Winchester saga played out, we were left on that dark night in the woods with a stunned Dean and a confused Mary and it’s like no time has passed since that dramatic cliff-hanger in May. So, how did all the pieces of the premiere fit together and what does it look like for the future of season twelve so far (twelve?!)? Pretty good, I think.
Okay, we are only two episodes in so this is probably a premature assessment; but the flavor of the season is settling in nicely so far. "Mamma Mia"had a decent flow, some interesting action and we did finally get to see someone punch Toni in her smug tea-drinking face. How about the rest of the details?
My heart is still recovering from this one. It certainly didn’t set out as a heart breaker or one of those uber-dramatic, memorable Winchester scrapbook moment episodes; but then the episodes that make your breath catch and your stomach clench this early in the game, rarely do.
Human monsters, an old-fashioned case and a dollop of the BMoL with their star-killer’s cameo, featuring insight into their twisted concept of their own superior ways and why they’re so much better than Sam, Dean and American hunters in general. What’s not to like?
Like much of season 12 to date, there is a pleasant classic flavour toAsa Fox without sacrificing original, fresh storytelling along the way.Asais another character-heady tale, with strong writing and unique insights into the hunter community, all the while bringing together a resilient collection of mother-figures around the Winchesters.
Episode seven was a dark, depressing and flashy look at the gritty underbelly of Hollywood life in the best way as onlySupernaturalcould achieve. Some great venues reinforced a strong atmosphere all around and delivered a deep, gritty episode for us to enjoy.
The mid-season final of season 12 – where do we begin? Somehow this episode was equal parts fluff and actionable content, and whileLOTUSwasn’t unsatisfying per se, whether it was mid-finale caliber is the question of week. Let’s consider the pieces.
The 250th episode! Who knew way back when the mission was searching for John and mourning Jess that this is where we’d end up all these years later?First Bloodwas a bit of a different flavor forSupernatural– but then a lot of season twelve has been about changing it up in that sense and it worked, for the most part. The action style, the approach of the feds and the emotions delivered well. As a 250th tribute to the Winchester family we’ve come to love, all the marks were met.
Point for point, this episode had a bit going for it in the back half: characters, actors, history. On the other hand, some interactions were lacking overall. Bringing the boys back together after so long separated to an intriguing piece of Castiel’s history that also foreshadows the future in vague ways. Yet that made for an interesting episode nevertheless.
