LadyWatch Awards

We Love These Awards Celebrating Women Over the Age of Celine Dion

We are loving this.

“LadyWatch with Ryan and Jason” is a popular weekly podcast. Co-hosted by Ryan O’Connor and Jason Powell, the two pop culture pundits report on current events related to over eight hundred fascinating women in pop culture over the age of Celine Dion. It is the mission of LadyWatch to celebrate the lives, successes and accomplishments of these fascinating women.

They announced the nominees for their Second Annual LadyWatch Awards on the podcast’s 149th episode. The nominees were selected by O’Connor and Powell but voting is open online to the general public.
