Now that the nominees have been selected for this year’s Pluto Award, the Awards Committee has assured the staff that three finalists will be selected from this group on December 23rd. Yes, Charlotte, this is going to be another tough one for the Awards Committee and it looks like they have their work cut out for them. In 19 days we’ll know who the three finalists are for the 2009 Pluto Award.  Once the three finalists are selected we’ll have to wait until January 5, 2010 to find out who the winner is. Talk about nail-biting. Mercy!
