Get your vote on
Back again by popular demand, The Ticket Awards are your chance to choose the best popular – and not so popular – culture of 2012.
Picking their way through all the cultural background noise (so you don’t have to), Ticket journalists and critics have been fighting tooth and nail to get their choices on the list. They didn’t all succeed. In this edition, you will find their favourite movies, music, festivals and games of 2012. It was all consensual, of course – which is how we like it.
Huge thanks go to Donald Clarke, Tara Brady, Tony Clayton-Lea, Jim Carroll, Lauren Murphy, Ailbhe Malone, Brian Boyd, Una Mullally, Michael Dervan, Siobhán Long, Cormac Larkin, Aoife Barry, Joe Breen, Ian Maleny, Ciara O’Brien, Laurence Mackin, Joe Griffin and Mark Graham.
But it’s not all about them . . . it’s actually up to you. Check out the lists, moan, cheer, storm out the room, then vote for your favourite movies, actors, bands, albums, festivals and games on irishtimes.com
Democracy rules! And there are prizes, so democracy may also pay. Results in The Ticket on December 21st . See you then.
