So let's all pretend to act surprised when Last of the Dashkin wins the Best Movie of 2009 award.

The best movies out of that entire batch are

-Hans van harken´s Cripple Kane
-Last of the dashkin
-Tarboy
-Happyharry´s Watchmen

I quite honestly hope one of these 3 wins.
Either way I think my favourite was the one Hans made because it has a lot of artistic value as an independent project and It wasnt apreciated like it should when it came out. And that minimalistic style of animation is actually a lot harder to play with than it seems. I dont think theres a lot of people who can pull it off like he does.

Now, the ones I think should NOT win

-that horrible cyanyde and happyness thing

that would be all!

Hmm, my personal favourite move would be Tarboy I think. I was a little dissapointed with the last of the dashkin, because some animation was done in low quality (based on the quality of other Adam Phillips animations), and his animation style requires really a lot of hard work to look good (which some scenes lacked). On the other hand Tarboy was very stylish, storyteller was one of the best voice actors I have heard on NG, usage of modern animation techniques to include nice flashes and lightings were well placed, the color scheme was great, the changing of scenes was dynamic and very smooth. Also the ending was a really well wraped up cliffhanger, it left space for expansion, but also it did not feel as if the story is incomplete.

Wow, so much to choose from!

Personally, I want Saturday Morning Watchmen or The Transformer to win, but I'm pretty sure that Tarboy will take the award this year.

As for the games, I could pick most of them for being "worth a mention", but I think Gretel & Hansel has to be it, for the sheer amount of work put in. Addictive qualities will mean a boost for games like Toss the Turtle and Thing Thing Arena 3, but when you imagine how much work was put into that game, I have to say Gretel & Hansel.

Any clues towards the nominees for user and musician of the year? Also, sense we have the art portal now, any chance there will be an artist of the year?

I am really excited about the best movies/games. Really going to be a hard choice to make. The quality is just over the top from last year!

I have to say Last of the Dashkin gets my vote for best Movie, just because of the high quality of the animation, the immersion of its setting and its iconic character.

Game is much tougher, i love Cananbalt and Robot Dinosaurs but Ching Chong was hands down the highest quality game of the year so it deserves the win.
