The Blog Oscars are under way right now. Here.

You can vote in the Best Science Blog category for, well, me if you want! I’m currently in last place with, like, five votes. No reason to expect that to change much. Pharyngula is likely to win in this category, of course.

Respectful Insolence
is currently holding on to a shaky lead in the Best Meidal/Health blog.

In the best overall blog category, Hot Air is taking an early lead, swamping the competition.

Uppity Women is also taking a strong early leas for Best New Blog, the Wonkette is kicking butt for the Best Liberal blog, and The Comics Durmudgeon is beating the crap out of my choice (Jon Swift) for Best Humor Blog. Go vote for Jon!

JoeMyGod, my choice for the GLBTA category is just holding on to a weak second against Towland Blog.

My favorite Very Large Blog, Bitch PHD, is winning in that category! My favorite Large Blog, Miss Cellania, is in third place way behind Jammie Wearing Fool. Go there and help out, please!

Naturally, LifeHacker is doing well as Best Technology Blog, but is getting nudged out by Gizmodo.

Go have a look. And as they say, vote early and vote often. Apparently you can vote every day until the polls close!

    Just voted. You’re exactly 1500 behind PZ, but gaining since Stacy commented, up to 55.
    Omissions of great blogs in many categories, and no category for the culture-science-political mix that give this blog its don’t fence me in atmosphere.
