I think runner up might be a good thing to do sometimes?

Possible compromise:
Years ago, they used to list all of the nominees for an award.
Now, they only list the winner.

In the reward ceremony, we could go BACK to listing all the nominees. That's an absolute zero effort thing (it should literally just be a copy-past thing guys), but it allows for a second spotlight beyond the original nomination, so to speak: "these were the others who were considered", and with that extra mention, those people/situations/games might get a higher level of exposure.

My goal and backstage agenda was to push for a "finalists" list to be published one month before the ceremony to build hype. Basically take all the nominees and pare it down to 4-5 finalists for each award, then only have the judges need to judge those 4-5 finalists. It'd be more Oscar-like and would build hype and recognize other finalists who were close to winning.

Why can't we bring Best Town Performance back but distribute it to only the players that deserve it?
I might misgender you, if I do, it's probably because your avatar looks girly.

because then you have a group of 4-5 people picking through a player list and handing out awards to very specific people which will result in more drama than you even can imagine

the amount of butthurt people complaining they should've been involved in that award/win and the quote walling that would happen for/against that kind of shit would be ridiculous

it's not worth the effort

Plus it's kind of impossible to assign credit to specific players in an objective way

It's either all or nothing
to be honest, I lied a little
