Award Ballot 2005

Ranking system ripped wholesale from Mike D'Angelo's Skandie awards, which was in turn ripped wholesale from the Village Voice's Pazz 'n Jop music survey; you get 100 points to award to 10 choices in each category, giving between 5 and 30 points to each choice. These scores won't affect anything, but it's a neat system, and it'll give you a look at some preferences outside of my annual top ten.
