In case you didn’t know, the 2018 Audie Awards are being hosted tonight! You can watch it live on Facebook here.
You can also view a list of the nominations by clicking here. Among the names and titles that caught my eye:
Paul McCusker’s audio drama (I didn’t know he had a new one!) entitled Brother Francis, and starring Geoffrey Palmer. He also has another audio drama I didn’t know about!: “The Trials of St. Patrick” (starring John Rhys-Davies).
Treasure Island is also among the nominated audio dramas.
Rachel McAdams is nominated for Best Female narrator for “Anne of Green Gables.” (Does her red hair make her sounder redder?)
Both Kenneth Branagh and Stephen Fry are up for Best Male narrators for “Murder on the Orient Express” and “Sherlock Holmes” (respectively).
Martin Sheen narrated “The Home Front” and Phylicia Rashad narrated “My Life, My Love, My Legacy” –they are nominated for Best History.
“Captain Bayley’s Heir” (Heirloom Audio Productions) is another audio drama, nominated for Faith Based productions.
Another Christian fiction title is “Catching the Wind,” by Melanie Dobson.
For classics lovers, “Daisy Miller” (Henry James) and “Phineas Finn” (Anthony Trollope) are nominated.
I just noticed that Johnny Heller is being nominated for his part in “Wedgie & Gizmo”. I had the privilege of seeing him and his wife in person, and asking a few questions. (I’m name-dropping now; I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t know me from Adam.)
Oh yeah– and let’s not forget Scott Brick. 😉
Have you listened to any of these? Feel free to provide reviews!
