Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

So, thanks to our five judges, we finally have the results. We may get some playlist over time, but for now let's just sum it up.
The judges were (those who didn't care me naming them):

GloryQuestor
Ileia
mirkosp
Moonlight Soldier
ngsilver

None of the judges knew who were the other judges (except for mirkosp who announced his status of judge publicly).

The judges couldn't vote in the category they had a video in/they were nominated in with the only exception of Ileia in Best Use of Special Effects where she was allowed to vote upon insisting her video Alive, which was nominated by other judge, has no SFX in it. She rated it one (the lowest score) to not break the voting system.

Following are the results in this format:

Name of category (max. number of points a video could have gotten)
Winning vid (points gotten) - marked with an asterisk if I decided it on a tie
Some comments on it from our judges, if available.
Videos on the second and third place, together, in alphabetical order.

Well, here we go:

Best Action Video (44)
SOUL?GROOVE (36)

- Upbeat, fun to watch, one of the best Soul Eater vids out there.

De:Light
Saturday Night Fight Club
testosteROS


Best Character Profile (55)
Evangelion Complex (51)

- This song is so perfect for Shinji.
- This takes quite possibly the most overdone of all character profiles and makes it new and interesting again.

Being a Superstar
For The Love of The Game


Best Collaborative Video (44)
testosteROS (35)

D-ON!
Magical Breaker


Best Comedy Video (45)
A Feel Good AMV (38)

- So few comedy AMVs actually make me laugh, this one delivers.
- Screams comedy from ever scene. A very amusing selection of fitting clips makes this stand out in its technical semplicity. Also, reismirk was just flooring.

Lawl & Order: Legal Tender
Bloocheck: Dynamic Movie Voice


Best Dance Video (45)
Dance Dance Revolution: Ike Ike (30)

- The DDR craze may be over but this video is maddeningly addictive.

Bakadance!
Lord of the Anime
Oniromancie
Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana! Sana!!!
Shake Eet!


Best Dramatic Video (48)
Time (35)

- Has two key dramatic points which have even more impact due to the good storytelling. The ending is especially strong since it does manage to leave a strong bittersweet taste to the viewer.

Focal Perspective
Nuvole d'Oceano


Best First Video (70)
Is This a Mad World? (46*)

- Given the often-used song and source, I'm amazed at how this is able to keep my
interest. A good job in my book.

[Re-Evo] New Wave Jacket
Clash
ENVIRONMENTAL SECURE


Best Fun Video (60)
Senpai Says (42)

- You need to see it at a con for the full effect, but this is soooo good.
- While, I think this IS one of the most fun amvs, especially at a convention, I don’t think it's fair to vote it up in a category when it's not available for the rest of the community to see.

Bakadance!
Evangelion Complex
Magic Oven Mittens


Best Horror Video (55)
Eliminate, Extirpate, Asphyxiate... (43)

- Hands down, this video has a really dark mood. Definitely worth of the Best Horror title. Some of the editing tricks could be considered somewhat "cheap," but they were meant to be there so every complaint is just an attempt to bitching.

Being A Superstar
Glee


Best Multi-Editor Project (44)
Video Game Project 5 - Revival of Heroes! (44)

- Quality tracks all-around, even when you haven't played some
of these games, it's still a fun and interesting video to watch.
- If you're going to make a long MEP, it needs to have some kind of substance to hold it together. That this actually creates a narrative while parodying and playing around with its own 'revival of heroes' theme makes it possible to sit through AND enjoy.

AuN Project 2009 - TouhouMix
L∞P


Best No-Effects Video (48)
Atom Bomb (31*)

- This video is such a blast every time I watch it! It's just so perfect and enjoyable as it is that I strongly believe that any change or even the slightest added effect would ruin its neverending flow. Amazing editing that really does show off how simple cuts and fades can make for an awesome piece of AMV. :)

Number 1
Saturday Night Fight Club
This Is Halloween


Best Parody Video (55)
iDespair (44)

Bloocheck: Dynamic Movie Voice
Lawl & Order: Legal Tender


Best Romantic Video (48)
Nuvole d'Oceano (40)

- If there's a genre this fits best in, it's romance. Clearly, it shows love in a very unique way, and that is why I believe it excels especially in this category.

Creative Black Space
Opposites Attract


Best Sentimental Video (65)
Reason to Smile (45*)

Butterflies of God
Only Bob


Best Storytelling (60)
Rainbow Bebop (46)

Chillout
Lawl & Order: Legal Tender
Time


Best Trailer or Commercial (70)
Bloocheck: Dynamic Movie Voice (69)

- Original and hilarious, good use of dialogue.
- Rather than just play on an existing theme, this trailer makes fun of actually creating a trailer.

Kawaii Girls: Ultimate Dating Simulator
To Boldly Drill
Watchmenchi


Best Use of Instrumental Music (50)
Nuvole d'Oceano (45)

- Beautiful, a good watch

Butterflies of God
Ghost In The Machine


Best Use of Lip Synch (50)
Creative Black Space (49)

- Hands down best lip-synch I've ever seen, let alone best of this year.

A Feel Good AMV
We Need You!


Best Use of Multiple Anime (60)
Hello World (48)

- The various anime are used in such a way that if you weren't familiar with them, you might
even think it was all from the same anime.

Bloocheck: Dynamic Movie Voice
Ian Fleming's Property of a Lady
We Need You!


Best Use of Special Effects (60)
Ian Fleming's Property of a Lady (48)

- Extremely well-done effects, feels almost like a real opening.

Butterflies of God
Chillout
Only Bob


Most Artistic Video (33)
Nuvole d'Oceano (28*)

Eviscerated Butterfly
Butterflies of God


Most Original Video (52)
Bloocheck: Dynamic Movie Voice (41)

Blazing Stewardesses
Butterflies of God


Video of the Year (44)
Time (35)

Butterflies of God
Continuous Play


Editor of the Year (18)
qwaqa (17)

Fall_Child42 (Dr. Dinosaur)
Ileia


Most Helpful Member (24)
mirkosp (22)

- Always goes above and beyond the call of mod-duty, his name is a constant for the video help
forums.

Aggressor
dokidoki
GloryQuestor
Zarxrax


Most Improved Editor (32)
Moonlight Soldier (25)

- Her videos continue to get better and better. Next is just to break out of her usual
genres.

godix
Nikolakis
Nya-chan Production


Rookie of the Year (40)
Darklydone (33)

Tana-sama
Thepooh


If you find any mistakes in naming or links, please write so, so I can fix it.

It was fun - see you in a year o/

Good job running this. I'm surprisingly pleased with the outcome; regardless of whether I agree with all the final results, I think it's very easy to see that they were well-considered. Thanks judges.

<mirkosp> and now I present an amusing fact: "How We Kill Weekends" was going to be runner-up for most artistic if it wasn't for the 5th judge's votes.

This is based on what nya told me when I raged finding said video as added for the category's finalists...
...either she trolled me, or the other 3 judges before me were drunk when they voted. >_>

Nice to finally see this done :P
Though I'm surprised at some (or lack of some) of the videos in the runner-ups and a few winners, there was also a good deal of justice towards some categories as opposed to the VCAs.
Congratulations to all the winners :up:
