Holy shit, i wasn't expecting to get that high again. Thanks a lot Tom, and I also agree Snowbot was more of a holiday classic than mine, so thanks for the second place and being so generous!
And Luis, i hope you found it at least entertaining to watch :)

I think it might be me who's been guilty of 'bitching' about prize winnings in the past and if it came off that way, I apologize.

However, and I say this in a flat monotone with no amount of 'bitching': Yes, Lambinvoker, 9th and 10th place were for some unknown reason, chopped off. They should at least be listed as such even with no cash prizes.

Stiff competition and great submissions all around! Congrats to the winners!

Nobody likes a winner anyway!!!! HAHAHA!

I'm so happy to be me I guess... ;)

This winter flash off was really good. I liked Christmas Pill and Frost'D the best. But I seriously should watch them all.

I also liked

and I thought this was not about christmas at all

this could have been better, I liked it overall though.

Happy new year!

I didn't have anyone specific in mind - people bitch after every contest winner announcement.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Years from now, Little Aviator will still stand on its own as a timeless piece, independent of the holidays or time period. It's a disappointment not to win today, but in the long-term I think you'll be glad you made what you made.

The contests are becoming increasingly difficult because the results tend to haunt me for the long-term. For example, Halloween 2007... Blockhead Ghostmas was a great submission, an original character and a lot of effort, and it won the audience vote that year. It's still a great movie, but over time, I feel like Spooky Scary Skeletons is the submission that best defined that year, and it took fourth.

But another movie that didn't take first was also amazing and continues to hold up today:

I just have to remind myself that the contests are motivation for people to give themselves a deadline and create something competitive, and they will get to carry that creation with them for the rest of their lives, with or without proper acknowledgment from NG.

Prooving difference between being good (and hyped) and being talented..

I have to write stuff now or else it won't let me post the message. So, one day, I woke up facing my life, and I realized I was a junk full of decrepitude and weakness. Garbage day =D

Never thought about it like that. Thanks Tom. Although, i feel bad now that this stuff haunts you

So, Tom, you're missing the last two out of the top ten.

In your spot for 6-10, you only have 6-8

Might wanna let us know who else won :P

On another note, I would disagree with the top two picks :\

I wasn't a fan of Snowbot or Eddsworld.

I personally think the last shopper should have gotten number 1.

But good job everyone anyways.
I'm glad I got my calendar :3

I don't laugh at the jokes in most Eddworld movies either but I really like how they've created their own original comedy series here on Newgrounds with original characters. That's not an easy thing to pull off. So I appreciate that tremendously and five their movies every time for that reason. What I don't think is right is the same movie winning a monthly and a holiday contest but that's just me.

aw.. RWD's Silent Night should have gotten some kind of an award, its current score is so unfair because of religious prejud-er-preference.

Good job to the winners. But I must say, "Frank Jones" is sorely underrated! It's one of the best concepts that I've seen on Newgrounds this Christmas season, and with a great song:

I didn't win an award, but I'm still happy that so many people saw and liked my submission. I wouldn't have gotten this much feedback anywhere else.

The number and quality of submissions this year was great.

"In my honest opinion". Try a Google search next time you need to define an acronym, though.
