I kinda hoped that someone who doesn't have a professional background in animating would win, but his animations are awesome.

GOOD JOBS.

I don't think better choices could have been made. MaestroRage has some great new song in the audio portal every week and there's no need to explain why waterlollies and ng rumble won.

Congrats to the winners. I suppose Waterlollies was bound to win movie of the year, but I still would have liked to see something else I suppose.

sounds like you want an NG tank awards show!! good idea? maybe next year?

Not necessarily, but that's actually a pretty interesting ideia that could work and pretty well, if done right! It would add a level of suspense and excitment to the prize, even more so if it were done in real time. You get all the votes and then in real time count them and eliminate the losers until the winner emerges. You could get Tom to announce each sucessive result and even recruit prominent NG users to comment on the show as the results come in. It could (and I emphasy on the could) be quite interesting to watch, depending on hows it done (i.e., as long as it dosen't become something like the Oscars).

But for myself, I'm more curious as to what flashes the judges considered second, third... best, which is possible to infered thanks to voting system that was adopted. Although I understand if you choose not to release this kind of info, since it brings reconition to the second, third... best, but makes the last, second last... be less reconized, as well as creating potential flame wars.

I actually preferred Detective Grimoire to NG Rumble and I thought that it would have been harder to make. But whatever, NG Rumble was still epic.
I am going to guess that David Orr will be next years musician of the year. His music for Sonny was brilliant.

w00t! Intelligent minds prevailed, it seems, because all of these were the ones that should have won in the first place.

You should add another award next to the daily feature/crew pick/user's choice trophies.

I'm speechless.. as in, I forgot to write one. Thanks so much NG for this huge honour. I couldn't keep doing these movies without the continued support from Newgrounds and the Brackenwood fans.

I've said it before and I'll always say it: if it weren't for Newgrounds, my site would still be a relative unknown on a shared server and I'd probably still be working in a studio as 'talent-on-tap' churning out terrible sequels, like so many extremely talented people who deserve better.

Now I'm working from home, and while the money isn't as good as a full-time job, I make enough in AdSense to pay for a dedicated host, which makes my site almost self-sufficient. This gives me time to work on my personal projects including a Brackenwood feature film which I'm no co-writing with a close ex-Disney colleague in Los Angeles. Quite simply, none of this would be happening if it weren't for Newgrounds. I've got NG to thank for it all.

I'm completely gob-smacked.
Thank you,
A. Phillips

Fucking hell yeah! Congrats to all the winners, this is awesome!

I actually thought that you guys chose not to do the Best Artist, I'm really glad it ended up with MaestroRage, I can't think of anyone more deserving than him!

Yeah, I voted for Waterlollies as #1...

It was fun for a while but got boring quickly.

Waterlollies has been #1 on my list since hitting the portal. Bitey rocks!

Expected Results.
You guys are always afraid to pick somebody out of the exclusive "newgrounds insider club."

"OMG LUIS IS TEH KOOLEST PERSONES EVER, CAUSE YOU KNOW, HE'S A FRICKEN MOD!!!!"

You could have picked somebody else who doesn't have it as easy, other users have to work like hell to get half of there name out where Luis, all he had to do was join NG early. Why do you think his topics are so famous?

And Waterlollies? We know the movies are done well but they boost not even half a good story, and there are far more interesting movies on NG.

And lastly, NG rumble, good game, but IT'S NOT ORIGINAL! Sorry, but a fighting game will never be original no matter what you want to call it.


Good.

yeah, fuck this, this is all crap! everything is shit on this website, imma leave fo good waaah >:(

Do you even realise what Luis have contributed with to the NG community? Obviously not... get your head out of the BBS secition of NG and open up your eyes.
Best movie and best game... sure it's what you put in the word "best", if you wish to dispute stuff, feel free to leave a comment on my latest newspost, where i have comments on the movies I chose for top 5, + some others close to it.

I believe your second and third points are the reason why you're wrong about your first one. Luis is constructive, you are not.

If you don't see everything Luis does around here (or if you didn't even read Tom's explanation of why he deserved it) then no one can help you to understand. Also Luis gives the best head, so

I have to admit that I'm glad to see Waterlollies having won the top place for 2007 movies. While it may appear somewhat odd for me to say so, I do think that it shows where some real talent can take you on this site rather than the generic offerings of various other authors whose reputations are undeserved at best. With any luck, this may prove to be the spur necessary to inspire a new animation in the series.
