There’s nothing there that really surprises me to be honest, except for maybe the Best Fan Creation award. How the hell did FishPlayStreetFighter not even score a nomination? Not that I have anything against Pokémon, but I personally think that BEST Zelda Rap EVER should have won. Damn that old man, damn him and his catchy tune!

Anyways, what do you think? Are there any awards you disagree with? Leave your comments below!
