NOMINATIONS: 2nd Annual Indie Soap Awards


WE LOVE SOAPS TV announced on Monday the nominees for the 2nd Annual Indie Soap Awards, honoring the best in continuing story format web series in 2010.   Last year's winner for Indie Soap of the Year, DIARY OF A SINGLE MOM, received 13 nominations to lead the pack.  In total, 29 web series were nominated for awards, including 15 shows receiving "Fan's Choice" nominations for being one of the Top 15 vote-getters in 2010 in the weekly WLS TV Indie Soap of the Week Poll.

This year's awards show will be a live event in New York City on February 21, hosted by GOTHAM creator and star, Martha Byrne.   You can order tickets here.

The Indie Soap Awards were founded by WE LOVE SOAPS TV in 2009 to celebrate the creative talents of the indie web series world, who are blazing a trail into the future for the continuing story format.  Sometimes on a shoestring budget, these producers, writers, actors, crew manage to develop amazing work and are the inspiration for this event.
