Finalists are decided. Just waiting on some last-minute fixes on some buggy uploads before I announce them.

Yay finalists! Yay me for making finals again here!

One last dance, one last chance to see some of the best AMVs this year. Good luck, all!

Heard from a friend that was there that it went well and everyone seemed to enjoy the entire contest. My friend told me all the winners, but I don't remember them all...I'm sure Vic will post them all soon enough.

What I do remember:
Best in Show: PonyNote
Parody: Spiral Rangers
Best Action: All Hallow's Odd
Runner-Up Action: Naruto Ball Z
Best Comedy: Mother's Day Special
Runner-Up Comedy: Kount Krausula
Best Upbeat: Once Upon a Time in Russia

If I mixed anything up I apologize, it was a bit noisy on the other end of the phone conversation...

Drama/Serious:
2nd- "7 Days" by drewaconclusion

2nd- "Kount Krausula" by drewaconclusion
1st- "Mother's Day Special" by l33tm33twad

Best in Show: "PonyNote" by VivifxAMV

Iron Editor: Erika Thompson (retains championship)

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.

Interesting, and thanks! (And I lost a contest earlier this year by a single vote during a tie-breaker. Single votes *do* carry weight in these things.)

Out of curiosity, do you recall if "Crazy Maybe" played in Romance or Comedy?

Congratulations to the other winners ^_^
