This is it, everyone. The countdown has begun. Nominations open at one minute after the stroke of midnight Pacific time tonight. Remember, there'll be an electronic form available instead of leaving nominations in the comments. Read about it here.

The rest of the panelists will be announced tomorrow Friday too. Our apologies for the delay. We were figuring out who goes where up to the last second. We had a record number of people volunteer, which means I'll be sending out a record number of rejections tonight. Gah.

Ready or not, here we come …
