Postby Phade » Tue Mar 08, 2005 12:27 am

Hey All,

The final results of the 2005 AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards are now available. inners can be viewed <a href="/members/amvvca/2005/winnersbycat.php">by category</a>, <a href="/members/amvvca/2005/winnersbymem.php">by member</a>, and <a href="/members/amvvca/2005/winnersbyvid.php">by video</a>.

Interesting observations about this year's results:

* There are 13 videos and 14 members in the winning round.
* No single member won with more than one video.
* No video won more than three awards.
* "Creator of The Year" won without winning any other category.
* Largest margin of victory: Best Lip Sync - 285 votes
* Smallest margin of victory: Best Fun Video - 18 votes
* 1189 members cast votes in the final round.

This year has proven to be the highest overall participation in the history of the VCAs with more entries, nominations, and votes than all previous years. Congratulations to everyone who made the semifinals, finals, and winning rounds!

Phade.

Congratulations all around!

A few surprises for me (ok, so most of the ones I though I had called were wrong), but congratulation anyway!

Congrats on the winners! :D

(now we can put our anxiousness behind us and "kill" the VCA forum)

And I just noticed something. Is it just me or is always a comedy-type video that wins Best First Video? :roll:

It's awesome that Darci-san's "Greed vs. Envy" won in two categories - I love that video ^.^

This was the first year I participated in VCAs, and it was kind of fun. Although I still don't understand how I got nominated - I don't think my name was ever mentioned in the forums :?

But it was exciting, anyway! Congrats to the winners ^_^

Holy carp! I never actually expected to win anything :shock:

A big thank you to everyone who ran the contest and everyone who participated, and congrats to the other winners! :)


*still wonders why "Telephone Love" was DQ'ed*

To be in all honesty, this year's VCA results were a little disapointing...

Some of the videos and members, I think, did not deserve to win. I'm not going to mention any names or anything, but there were definately better videos and creators for most of the categories than the people and videos who won... I am honestly disapointed with most of the VCA results...

On the better side, I'm glad to see that some videos actually won the category(ies) that they were meant for. Eva Bebop, AMV Hell and Shounen Bushido just to name a few.

Congrats to the winners, and hopefully next year will be an even harder choice for people to vote on. I had trouble choosing videos for some of the categories, like Best Comedy, Creator of the Year and Best Multieditor just to name a few. 18 isn't a small enough margin, we need to get down to atleast 1 or 2 votes separating the top 2 vids, THEN it will get exciting! And winning by 285 votes, now THAT's how a category should be won :P Either way, congrats to the winners

WOW :shock:

I expected SB to win the Best Lip sync but not the best visual effects and more the video of the year ! I'm really happy of that :) :) :).
THank you all people who voted for SB, and thank you the others for the great winners you voted for on this year.

Congratulations to all other winners, specially Tyler and Scintilla, your videos are great ;). I hoped suberunker's Football would win a prize :( but this the vote rule.

I don't want to start a big debate or anything, and I sure as hell don't mean to insult Scintilla, but I don't think Eva Bebop really should have won Best Instrumental. This is just my opinion. But I think there were at least two other videos that better suited the category, and fit far better as an instrumental video.

It seems, and this is unavoidable, that people voted Eva Bebop for their favorite video that happened to have no vocals. I'm sure we all have different opinions on how instrumental videos are best portrayed, so I'll end here.

Scintilla, congratulations, and I mean you no disrespect. :P

To be fair, I thought either you or Arigatomina should have won Most Helpful, and I've said that from the start. I simply haven't heard much from Vic, so that was a surprise.

I thought he won that by virtue of releasing that guide, although I was wondering if something like that would be enough on its own...
