For the first annual Newgrounds awards, we assembled 23 prominent members of the community across two panels and voted on a list of 36 nominees (18 movies and 18 games) pooled from the monthly awards, contests and staff selections.
We aspired for this to be a black tie event, but this year all we got is this front page post.
BEST MOVIE OF 2007:
BEST GAME OF 2007:
MUSICIAN OF 2007:
Musician of the year was selected based on the feedback of prominent members of the Audio Portal, as well as our own observations of which artists made the "biggest splash" in 2007. You can hear MaestroRage's music in tons of Flash games, as well as the upcoming Castle Crashers for XBLA.
USER OF 2007:
I personally picked Luis as user of the year because I can't think of anyone else who has voluntarily contributed more to NG. From participating in contests, to organizing collabs and community art projects such as the Munny Competition, Luis is a class act all the way.
You can come meet Luis, as well as MindChamber, The Swain, Krinkels, myself and a large number of other NG regulars at the Big Apple Con in NYC on June 7th and 8th! We're setting up a Newgrounds desk and hanging out for two days, where we'll be selling stuff from the store along with some exclusive (for now) items such as these embroidered Newgrounds patches! We're also giving away some fun NG flyers.
Congrats to the winners!!!

Agreed. I wanted jerry in the movies section go.
Ng rumble owns.
Sweet, all of the winners deserved it. NG Rumble rocked, and Waterlollies was amazing. I hope to see more from Adam Philips soon.
How'd I guess MaestroRage was gonna be Musician of 2007! Congrats to all the winners!
I reject your reality, and subsitute my own.
'Tis true. My posts are teh winz0rz.
It was expected really. They both deserved it though. I love them both.
I still think NG Rumble is a generic brawler, but you just can't argue with Waterlollies and MaestroRage.
Congrats to all! :P
Mmm, I just knew Waterlollies was gonna win. I mean, I obviously had to vote for him in my top 5, but tried to avoid picking it for the #1... Adam's too damn awesome for his own good. Wasn't really watching the games page, but I'm not really surprised NG Rumble won. Congrats to both of them, I hope they enjoy their trophies :)
Also, congrats to Maestro... didn't expect to see that category, but was well needed, as the audio portal is important, too ;)
Voting was hard, I honestly spent way too much time doing it, especially when I could just just picked Waterlollies from the getgo probably ;P
Well, looking forward to next years awards. Hope to be a part of the team again, was fun :)
A huge congradulations to Adam Phillips for creating Waterlollies. Amazing.
Now NG Rumble being the game winner, it WAS the best out of all the games, but it's still an OK game.
well, like, you couldn't, like, find it because, like, you're dumb, god

Praise the lawd. Let the "Portal should have won" barrage begin! :D Haha, yay
I am so completely floored by this. I could go into a big spiel thanking everyone involved and how my life is now validated, but I'll save that for a blog post later, which will go in tandem with an IMPORTANT NGR UPDATE :O! In the meantime, huge thanks to the panel, the community, and my partners in the project. I'll never stop being overwhelmed by the response to this game. <3
