    wooo go sammy! Best wing man ever!

    Aragorn is amazing.  Yet when the hobbits were bowing to him Aragorn himself declared, “My Friends! You bow to no one!”

    Awww…Sam the Stouthearted won! And on my birthday. How precious! I always thought that Sam was the bravest and most daring of all. Considering he was raised as a lower-class gardener, he fearfully faced every danger head-on, and sacrificed himself many times. He clung to the mission and supported Frodo, when even Frodo could endure no more. He has shown his quality…the very best!

    I am glad Sam won. I have nothing against Aragorn, but Sam is a true hero in both the books and the movies. Glad I voted for him.

    Must’ve been rigged…

  11. Mason-Theresa

    Sean Astin should be proud!

  12. Eruviel Tindomerel

    As much as I love Aragorn, Samwise takes my heart 😀 He not only kept Frodo going, but he taught us so much about life and enduring. Sam is my favorite! 😀

    A true hero.  I thought Sean Astin deserved an Oscar for his portrayal of “Samwise”.  Hollywood missed the mark in my opinion.
