New, comments

Check out the results from all seven of the Bloody Elbow 2020 Year-End Awards.

Like we do every year, Bloody Elbow put the best of 2020 up for a vote. Seven categories were available to chime in on, and our readers did exactly that - to the tune of a whole bunch of votes. I’d like to thank you for your responses, and here’s how it all broke down. Including our first-ever tie!

You can click on each individual category for the full breakdown, but I’ll just show the top three vote-getters here.

The number beside each nominee is the number of votes received, and the % is the % of total votes.
