We haven’t been terribly successful in directly nominating or backing winning campaigns or contestants, though we were able to document a 1:2 cross country vie for a spot in the Avengers.
Our pick for last year’s FOF, reigning Golden Tumbleweed Favorite Actor Award Winner Steven Ray Byrd, and countless other New Mexicans whose cause or talents we’ve championed (including them there animals we’re trying to raise funds for – see the donation widget to your right) don’t quite get the recognition we lobby for.
So I won’t ask you to vote for this adorbs young man Anthony Almanza (below), or the sun shiny goodness of Dee Brown – the choice is yours all yours!
Watch ‘em all, pick your fave and support ‘em! Your vote is your complete video view so go to kasa.com to see them all. The chosen one will be your Face of Fox for the next year or so and will speak to and for our community for the duration and perhaps beyond…
If you’re some kind of TV personality superhero who can sweep in and take this you have until Friday April 29, 2011 at midnight to submit for consideration here.
The top ten viewed videos move on to the second round of selection beginning Monday May 2, 2011 – Good luck to all you talented contestants!
Much success and best wishes to all who enter! And adios to our out going face Michael Junchaya. Keep up with him on the social net. until we see him again in another gig!
With an impressive margin NM Actor, Steven Ray Byrd takes the title of, Voted Favorite Local. Every Actor nominated is a favorite of ours and we’re very thankful to have had such a strong response in votes across the board! And especially happy to have received several write-in nominations so that we can cover even more local talent!
Sweeping the write-in votes in her category and the entire poll over all, Christian-Rhen Stefani too took a strong lead and the top ranking as Favorite Local Actress in this year’s Golden Tumbleweed Awards Polling.
Congratulations to both these local faves and much love to all those nominated and recognized. Can’t wait to learn more about all the amazing talent in front of and behind the camera! Go New Mexico!
