7th Annual Goldstar National Nutcracker Award


Goldstar’s The Nutty Award

For the seventh year in a row, Goldstar is awarding the Goldstar National Nutcracker Award this December.

Here’s a little history. A few years ago, we noticed that we had a LOT of different productions of The Nutcracker on Goldstar all over the country. This was also not too long after we launched our user review and rating system. Putting the two pieces together, we decided that it would be fun to give Goldstar members the chance to determine which of the many and varied Nutcrackers out there could claim the title of the “Best Loved Nutcracker in America.”

This year, more than 60 productions are nominated and in the running. The Nutcracker with the highest average user rating (and a minimum of 20 ratings) will be named the winner. We’ll announce the winner on December 23, 2014.

Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet is on a two-year winning streak, and I know they’re looking to make it a three-peat! It’s very early days, but the leader at this moment is another Chicago production. Take a look for yourself.

I can’t wait to find out who’ll win The Nutty this year!
