LA Press Club Adds Twitter, Facebook Awards

For the first time, the Los Angeles Press Club is seeking to recognize entertainment journalists who are wizards on Twitter and Facebook.

When the Fourth Annual National Entertainment Journalism Awards are presented November 21 at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown LA, the following three entertainment news reporting categories will be awarded:

Tweet, single or series;
Facebook presence, organization;
Facebook presence, individual.

That first one is the new king of the bragging rights hill. Entry fees are $40 before September 16, $50 thereafter. Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Anne Thompson (@akstanwyck), Anthony Breznican (@Breznican) and the rest of the A-to-Z LA entertainment journo crew, time to start your @engines.

The other new prize this year is Entertainment Journalist of the Year, which comes with a $1,000 check.
