Mr. Pointy Award Winners for 2011 Whedon Studies. The winners have been announced for the Whedon Studies Association's annual Mr Pointy Awards, which recognize the best scholarship in the field of Whedon studies. There is a Short Mr Pointy for short works, and a Long Mr Pointy for books, as well as a few special awards.

I've updated my original link to have a more authoritative source and moved the original link to this comment (below):
Mr Pointy Awards for 2011 works.

I know Nikki Stafford won one for the Great Buffy Rewatch. Wonder why it isn't mentioned.
And Alysa Hornick won one for Whedonology: An Academic Whedon Studies Bibliograpy, her ongoing contribution to Whedon scholarship.
Thanks for the feedback redeem147 and Eden. I think I've corrected my mistake.
I'm glad that Don Macnaughton won. Love the book he made.

Btw, anyone who was scared away by the price, it's so more cheaper digitally on amazon.
Redeem147 & Eden: We hadn't included the special Mr. Pointy awards in our recap. Sorry about that. Our big sister publication, Slayage, has the complete list, however.
redeem147 and Eden: I'm recapping the Slayage 5 conference on the blog, and I haven't gotten to the days that those special awards were given yet. They'll be mentioned next week.
Skytteflickan88: The summaries for each entry are what make it soooo useful.
Congratulations to everyone who won a Mr Pointy, I'm a massive fan of Nikki's blog so I'm especially glad she won one for the Great Buffy Rewatch!
Is it just me or does (juvenile comment) the long work vs short work delineation sound like an unrealized ween joke?
12 years old.

It's not just you. When my husband won the Short Mr. Pointy Award, I responded by saying, "You'll always be Long Mr. Pointy to me, sweetie."

Clearly, I'm a 14-year old boy.
