Apparently moviegoers in the Himalayan country on top of the United Nations happiness index gave “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” the Audience Award!  I’m still trying to wrap my head around that but it does make me happy!

Update 12/11:  The London Independent Film Awards gave us an award for Best Musical Horror Short.  As with the Horror Bowl Movie Awards, very much an award that appears to have been added/created especially for “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre”.

As in “We like your film, it falls between all sorts of category cracks.  Let’s just create a new, singular category just for you”.  I’ll take it!
