We blogged about winning a Prize at Nashville a couple of days ago and the votes are now in for the Audience Award which sees The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls tie for The Documentary Channel Audience Award for Best Documentary. Wahoo!
Excerpt from the press release:
Two documentary films already awarded prizes at the 2010 Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) tied for The Documentary Channel Audience Award for Best Documentary when the awards were announced last night at the Festival’s closing night party at the Cannery Ballroom. “For Once in My Life,” director Jim Bigham’s documentary profile of Miami’s Spirit of Goodwill Band, and “The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls,” director Leanne Pooley’s hysterical profile of the world’s only comedic, singing, dancing, lesbian, twin-sister country music duo, were both rated too high and too close to pick a clear winner. “For Once in My Life” had earlier won the Gibson Impact of Music Award for best music film; “The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls” was the Best GLBT film.
Thanks to everyone who saw the film in Nashville.
UPDATED: Just to prove she was there! A couple of pics of Leanne in Nashville:
