The ALA Media Award Announcements 2010
I received a request on this blog requesting that I record and make available the ALA Media Awards of 2010 for one and all to see. Sure, they’re shown live online, but sometimes it’s fun to feel like you’re in the room. So while this is shaky and foggy and all kinds of imperfect, this is a pretty close approximation of what you can expect at your typical award year. The video was too keep in one piece (hence the fact that I’m posting it at 8:00 at night and not 1:00 in the morning) so they are split in two here.
Here are the times for this first video:
0:00 – 1:47 Thom Barthelmess, President of ALSC, speaks.
1:48 -3:32 Camila Alire, President of ALA, speaks.
3:33 – 7:00 The Schneider Family Book Award announcements.
7:01 – 7:33 Some stuff about press releases.
7:34 – 14:17 Deborah Taylor, Chair of the Coretta Scott King Book Award Committee announces the winners of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards and the John Steptoe New Talent Award.
14:18 – 25:37 Linda W. Braun, President of YALSA, announces the Margaret A. Edwards Award winner, the William C. Morris Award winner, the YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award winner, and the Printz Award winners.
25:37 – 28:07 The Odyssey Award winners.

And here’s Part Two. I apologize, but some portions had to be slimmed down for the sake of space. The Spanish translations are now missing, as is the Artbuthnot Honor Lecture Award, and some of the times when committee members were being thanked.
0:00 – 3:42 Loida Garcia Febo, President of Reforma, presents the Pura Belpre Awards.
3:43 – 5:40 The Mildred L. Batchelder Awards
5:41 – 8:00 Robert F. Sibert Medal winners
8:01 – 10:09 The Theodore Seuss Geisel Award winners
10:10 – 12:15 The Caldecott Medal and Honors
