Interesting way the winners of Action and Comedy turned out -- at the end of the first count, there was a tie in the Action category. So the votes were recounted, and at the end of the second count, there was a definitive winner in Action but a tie in Comedy. Instead of counting for a 3rd time, the scores were averaged out in each category, and the winner edged out the runner-up by 1/2 vote. For what it's worth, I voted for "All Hallow's Odd" for Action. Who says your vote doesn't count in these things?
Anyway, congrats to all the winners. And also, thank you to the 15-or-so people that voted for my video in Action, even though I had no chance of placing in the top 2.
BTW, let me share a moment from Sunday's Random AMV showing: "Pony Bebop" plays, and a part of the audience groans in disapproval. Amanda and I laughed uncontrollably - such a perfect reaction. Later on, VicBond plays a Firefly mock OP set to Cowboy Bebop, then immediately plays a parody of that set to My Little Pony. I turn around and yell "DAMMIT VIC!" and the other few editors started laughing.
So it just goes to show that not every Pony parody has been made... yet.
