I can't really see the underdog winning anything in these awards. People stick with what they know.

Is Saturday Morning Watchmen eligible? I really liked that

Tarboy was okay, swell animation, music and an interesting enough storyline

Best Movie - Tarboy.
Best Game - Toss the turtle.
User of The Year - Luis.

Though There were some pretty awesome games that wen't toss the turtle that I thought should win, but based on a prediction, I'd say that one.

You guys are forgetting that these are OF THE YEAR awards. Shit made in January of 09 is just as relevant as shit made on new years day. Try to think back for everything that was submitted. Yes Tarboy was good, but Saturday Morning Watchmen was also, and don't forget all the long awaited collabs that came out as well. And when it comes to the game Time Fcuk is probably the best candidate, but also remember all the other power of three games, among so many others.

The user awards I have fuck all Idea who should get it, frankly no one comes to mind who did anything outstanding over and over again. And as far as musician and artist awards, who gives a rats, no one but a select few people will have any clue why the winners of that category won.

Best movie, although I disagree it will probably go to Tarboy. Because I don't think it would be fair if Adam P one it again.

Best game probably toss the turtle. Just because of it's popularity.

And best user is a mystery to me. although I know it won't be Luis. Alvin Hew maybe?

Tarboy will likely win the Best Flash, with Toss the Turtle winning the Best Game.

However, I think Egoraptor will win user of the year. His goofy movies have brought a TON of traffic to the site. Mori's plushies are cool, but they haven't really impacted the site like past Users of the Year have done.

Game of the Year had better go to Toss The Turtle! That's gotta be one of my favorite flash games of all-time, along with Pico's School! It's hard to say what movie of the year will be. I didn't watch very many movies this past year.

Also, let's hope Tom makes a video about it this year because last year's was effin' hilarious!


I laugh at your sigs!

Blame Tom for me reviving this; he announced the nominees and I didn't want people yelling at me to use the searchbar.

Since I don't know the users very well and I'm shite with games, I'll stick to predictions for Best Movie of the Year. I've viewed all the nominees, and judged as fairly as I could based on the same criticisms as the actual judges use. Each category was out of a possible ten points for a grand total of 50; feel free to debate my results if you like.

This is what I came up with:

-----

5th place - "Jerry: The End" by HotDiggedyDemon (39 points)
-Animation: 8
-Style/Originality: 6
-Writing: 8
-Timing: 8
-Score and Sounds: 9

4th place - "The Ballad of Cripplekane" by AlmightyHans / "Mastermind 4" by TheSwain / "War,Snow and Fire" by Valerofond (40 points each)
-Animation: 9 / 7 / 8
-Style/Originality: 8 / 7 / 9
-Writing: 8 / 9 / 8
-Timing: 7 / 9 / 8
-Score and Sounds: 8 / 8 / 7

3rd place - "Saturday Morning Watchmen" (41 points)
-Animation: 9
-Style/Originality: 7
-Writing: 8
-Timing: 9
-Score and Sounds: 8

2nd place - "Snow Snow for Lucy" by SpikeValentine / "Tarboy" by jameslee03 / "The Transformer" by JohnnyUtah (43 points each)
-Animation: 9 / 7 / 8
-Style/Originality: 8 / 10 / 8
-Writing: 9 / 9 / 9
-Timing: 9 / 8 / 9
-Score and Sounds: 8 / 9 / 9

Movie of the Year - "Last of the Dashkin" (44 points)
-Animation: 9
-Style/Originality: 8
-Writing: 9
-Timing: 9
-Score and Sounds: 9

-----

Now even with these results inscribed in digital stone, I admit I'm skeptical of my own scores. "Lucy" and "Tarboy" were both very good, and could easily trump "Dashkin" in the final run. "Watchmen" also has a shot at first. But these are the results as I predict them to be; whether I even came close remains to be seen.

Also, if you intend to debate with me on these results, bear in mind I didn't necessarily like everything I gave a high score to. "Dashkin" in particular was a bit of a letdown for me.

All right, I've said my piece. Carry on.

Tarboy or Last of the Dashkin seems close to movie of the year.
I think Ching Chong Beautiful may win game of the year, as much as I don't want it to. In my opinion I think it should go to Epic Battle Fantasy 2 or William and Sly.
