Ironic that the best action video didn't get an exclamation point to go with its title...

I'd have never thought such a little video where the big laugh only really comes at the end would become successful.
I are flabbergasted...thanks!

Wow, talk about irony.

Same weekend, one con, my vid is forgot to be played and the other con, my vid wins best action and fan favorite?!

This is a first for me, so I am shocked...!

Thanks! And congrats to everyone else!

@Rider: Don't worry, Rider, I'm sure DBZ will get some love at AX. ^_^
Currently replaying/recording: Tales of Vesperia (Xbox360) and Tales of Graces F (PS3)

I know this sounds vain...but did the Honorable Mentions warrant awards?
I'd hate to retire this video after only having earned "bragging rights" with it. :P

Last year, I was sent an award package for Honorable Mention, includes a certificate stating as such, and a few extra goodies.

Congrats to all the winners, can't wait to see how the competition will be next year. :D

Kaz, I think this makes up for not being shown at the other con, eh?
