I would disagree with that assessment this time around. We typically had around 15-25 votes in each heat, and there were 19 people involved in the game, plus a few others listened.

I think the voting reflects everyone's opinion who listened, while the awards are from a select few, or several (I can't remember how many were involved off the top of my head).

Yay, I finally won something!

But that makes me wonder, was it too diverse?

It definitely was a better turnout this time than before in the real listener: voter ratio. Congrats to everyone who participated and thank you very much for exposing me to some new music. I was jonesing for some more.

I was one of the critics, btw.

I know...but Screwtape did perform quite well in the previous awards to...and those were open to everyone to vote in weren't they?

I'm not suggesting any actual conspiracy though...I am just quite surprised Screwy has not won yet!

No, the last Critics Choice was actually more closed. The only voters were the contestants. This time, anyone could be a critic if they signed up.

Ahh well congrats to all the winners

In any case, we should have more critics.

If you want to be a critic in the next game say so in the Album Game thread. Let your voice be heard.

Yeah, there were less critics this time. I think that was simply because the requests for critics got lost in threads.

Yep. I'd like 10-15 critics to be honest. I don't understand why people don't do it. It is so easy.

I would have volunteered but I thought you guys were limiting the critics to 10!

Sorry. We never reached ten people by the way.

Well, I guess it's better than the Axver Awards, which is what I was expecting.

Damn Pla for getting the song award.

Ya know, I can't tell if you are just facetious all the time or you are just extremely bitter about everything.
