Anusboy, Harry the Harlequen Fetus, and Metal Gear Funnies? As much as I love Zekey and the lot, aren't we doing a little too much to try to appease that group of the NG audience?
Art in the Playground and the Assumption Song could've been animated in a weekend. Surprised to see them on the list...
Of course, Bambee, Chuck's New Tux, Easy Way Out, Jerry and the Closet, and House of 1000 cats were all excellent. Definitely deserving.
And There She Is, Kale, Fallen Angel, Greatest Invention Ever, Mastermind, Pancakes are Tiny, and Walk in the Woods were all brilliant pieces of flash that deserve some serious recognition.
It's a tough call, but I'd probably go for Bambee.

Thats the beauty of having many judges... i personally dont think entries should be judged based on how many months/years it took animator to make it. And frankly it annoys me when animators mention what a struggle its been and how many frames it took them. Who gives a shit. Just entertain us.
Animation is tough and its a thankless job, deal with it.
I used to be guilty of that myself and its annoying.
BTW no offense to all slow pokes, all im saying is im not going to put anyone on a pedestal because they took a long time to make something that in the end wasnt that entertaining anyway.

I hope that Fancy Pants and Walk In The Woods win, but they're all great and memorable nominations!
NG Twitter too! point oh
I give that an 'el-oh-el'.
While supplies last, all store purchases come with a free Griswold the Goblin sticker.
Visiting Newgrounds Since 2003
I would vote for Metal Gear Funnies just for its irreverence and it would sure get a hurtful kick to newgrounds top notch quality fame xP

Anusboy is (c) by Zekeyspaceylizard productions 1872
That's it, I'm calling it!
TSI 3, 4, and Final Step for Best Movie, and Mastermin: WC for Best Game.
Mark my words.
I remember a while back Newgrounds were giving free stickers regardless of purchases.
i'm praying that the assumption song doesn't win, is it just me that feels it's an egoraptor rip-off with a funny song? gah, i do beleive swain deserves something, maybe game, but movie has to go to fallen angel, if only for its sheer quality and so far seemingly well thought out storyline. if that loses to a test with a new tablet i will lose faith in all the judges who voted against it.

That wasn't the intent of my statement, but if you say so...
i dont think it will be easy to decide the winners,
its a true competition!
but a few are crap
this year will truly be a suprise,
last year, everybody knew the winners.
I nominate myself for the coveted NG's user of the year award. Nobody else knows how difficult it is spewing hate and racism and biggotry throughout the NewGrounds world! I am hated, I recive death threats, anything i submit gets immediatly taken down! Yet i remain ever diligent and determined and faithful to NewGrounds! Why? Becuse i am the best NG user. That's why.
Oooo... Dino Run or Mastermind get my vote. It's difficult to decide which is better. Mastermind is pretty extensive and has the best production value, but Dino run took a retro style and made it incredibly addictive.
congrats to the winnersand I think you know this aready but Newgrounds rulz the wrold!!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Has anyone mentioned..?
It's a quality movie and don't let any of that sloppy art fool you, it just adds to the animations class and style.
Then again Happy Harry Patrige is a mastermind with this entertaining-blood fest full of laughs
Best game would be from Con-Artists, sure not a Newgrounds exclusive thing or anything. But the most fun.
Those would be my votes anyway.
I was kinda disappointed that Amorphous+ didn't make the list, since that's been my favorite game on the sight for a long time now, although I suppose it wasn't anywhere near as graphically polished as some of the other entres, so I can understand as much. I am surprised that Thing Thing 4 didn't get a nomination though. There doesn't seem to be much lovin' for Weasel. :P
Congrats to all the nominees, though.
On the porch is where I sit. My car is on the fritz. And I don't give a shit

Thing Thing 4 actually would have been on the list if we added one more slot, and Amorphous+ was high up on the potential nominee list too... Do feel bad about Weasel getting snubbed this year, since he makes awesome games.
Ah... If only i could get something to show for my work this year...

I was hoping that this game would have made the nominee list, but the game selection is already tough to choose from.
My favorite movie is Bambee. It's rare that I laugh out loud from an animation after watching it more than once.
My favorite game would be The Torture Game 2 or Achievement Unlocked. Both of them are amazingly fun.
