But the one I like, the really cute one, is the quick, dependable chap. Nothing he won't do for you in a pinch - so he says.

Is this the shot you're referring to?:

I've got a dilemma.  I'd prefer not to do these categories at all.  If I submit my choices, I'm contributing to their likelihood of being included.  On the other hand, if they do get included, I'd like my nominations to be under consideration.  Will there be some time between the announcement of the additional categories and the deadline for submissions?
