Arg! Completely missed the Audie Awards at the end of May two weeks ago (May 28th)! You know how frustrating it is when you keep on reminding yourself it’s coming up for months, and then when it’s actually time you forget? 😦
Audie Awards are exciting in that they are the biggest awards of the year for audiobooks, narrators, and audio dramas. In fact, they are often dubbed “The Oscars” of the audio world.
This year had a few interesting finalists. LA Theatre Works won Best AudioDrama for their version of “The Hound of the Baskervilles.” Alan Cumming won for his narration of his autiobiography, “Not My Father’s Son.” Max Lucado’s non fiction book, “Before Amen” won in the best Inspirational non fiction audiobook category. The exciting sounding, “The Auschwitz Escape,” by Joel Rosenberg won for best Inspirational fiction. And Simon Vance won yet another Audie!
You can look at the list of finalists and winners by clicking here, as well as listen to samples all mentioned.
Although I have not had time to watch it yet, here is the Audie Awards 2015 on video. Now, hopefully I can remember to tune in live next year! Arg again.
Have you heard any of these audio productions? What did you think of them?
