AWA Guest AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENT

Postby MCWagner » Thu Nov 13, 2003 1:14 am

*Well, I figure this can't wait any longer. Patrick, or anyone who knows the info for Jeff Heller's award, please post the info below this announcement, and hopefully one of the mods will substitute it in. I do apologize, but a series of weird coincidences have delayed this announcement even longer as I tried to track down the info for one of the awards.*

Yes! After and entirely unreasonable delay of over a month, the putz in charge
of the AWA VAT has finally gotten around to posting the final list, the list of
awards given by the invited AMV guests to the deserving videos that they felt
got overlooked in the judging process or just deserved special attention!

Why the delay? Well, we can jot down a couple of weeks to tracking down those
guests who had to leave the con early and confirming whether or not they wanted
to give an award in that category. The rest of the time can be put down to my
being a lazy bastard, and the fact that the individual awards were all given to
me written down on little scraps of paper that promptly got mixed into all the
reciepts for the track this year. Found the last couple as I was putting
together the reimbursement forms.

So, in no particular order (as they are still in a great pile of little pieces
of paper here) the Guest-elected awards are as follows:

Patrick Bohnet of Demon Kitty Productions

Whew....

Now, for all of you who've won one of these awards, I'll be printing up the
certificates for each one and sending them off.....assuming you send me a
destination. Drop me a line with your physical address in my e-mail
gte106k@prism.gatech.edu This goes for all of you who were unable to pick up
your awards at the convention for the other contests as well. This year I
swear not to be a complete bastard and actually get them all sent off before
the 6-month mark.

Finally, for anyone who's curious, I've dug up our master sheet of when videos
were shown. Anyone who's curious about what time slot they ended up in can
post here, and I should be able to tell them which video and when.

I agree. I guess I understand some of the awards names not being on here though. I also notice Jingoro's award was defaulted to something else. Bah they were both funny :)

Thanks, Quu! I thought you might like that one.

(Note to mods to correct the studio spelling. An honest mistake, but it's the dance, not the spider. :wink: )

I didn't see this thread until after 1 AM, so the AWA contest list (with links) won't be updated until late tomorrow.

Ah hell.

The little piece of paper I've got didn't list that. Sorry, I'll see that it gets changed.

Thanks. :)

Heh. Do you honestly think that the fact it was blind judging kept me from putting Afro Kens in the video? :wink: Every video since WLtFO has had at least 1 frame with an Afro Ken in it. You're just not looking close enough- though I did endeavour to hide them really damn well so it wouldn't cause problems with blind judging. (I'd hazard on the VHS copies for Pro that it was pretty much impossible to see them....)

Congrats to the winners. These were some good vids.

I am curious when my Macross vid got shown. Trying to see what the audience reaction might've been. Heh.

Please verify, but I thought I'd heard he gave it the "Yes, I do totally suck" award, or somesuch?

I never did give an award as a panelist... I never did get my preregistration refund, either. ^^;
