The Audies®: Jenna Lamia & Charlton Griffin
Are Best Female & Male Narrators; Many More ...
May 26, 2010
Jenna Lamia received the 2010 Audie Award for best Solo Narration - Female, and
Charlton Griffin (pictured, Marcia Ciriello photo) won the coveted award as best Solo
Narration - Male at the 15th Annual Audies Gala last night at the Museum of the City
of New York.
Sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association (APA), the Audies are often referred
to as the “Oscars of spoken word entertainment."
It's the most prestigious awards program in the United States honoring audiobooks.
Gary Dell’Abate, a.k.a “Baba Booey,” avid audiobook listener and producer of the
world-renowned Howard Stern Radio Show, kicked off the event as this year’s host to
help APA honor the best titles in a variety of genres from the 2009 publishing year.
The Audiobook of the Year award went to Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African
Folktales edited by Nelson Mandela (Hachette Audio) who beat competitors, The Time
of My Life by Patrick Swayze (Simon & Schuster Audio) and previous Audie winner,
The Word of Promise® Audio Bible (Thomas Nelson, Inc).
The winning title stood out for excellent presentation, original music, meaningful bonus
material, and a stellar marketing plan, the APA notes.
Also, recognizing a production that represents the best the format has to offer in listening
excellence, the Distinguished Achievement in Production award was presented to The
Help by Kathryn Stockett for the narrators’ flawless interpretation of the source material.
“Every year the entries raise the bar in both innovation and creativity,” says Janet
Benson, APA President.
“We thank all entrants for continuing to produce thought-provoking and quality product
and for making the Audies a must-attend industry event.”
