After countless hours of work (ok, roughly 2-3) and hundreds of votes (or maybe closer to 15-20), it’s now time to present the first annual MGoAwards!
These awards are voted on by you the MGoUser. Votes are the total of the online poll votes, plus the original e-mailed in votes. I realize that some votes may have counted twice (poll and e-mail), but that’s the benefit you get from following directions the first time.
For a refresher on the nominees, go here.
Before we begin, I’d like to ask that the recipients limit their acceptance speeches to 2 minutes, and no Kanye-type interruptions please(unless it's funny).

As of now, the plan is to do this again near the beginning of next season (the offseason awards). Hopefully I'll be better at this and it'll go more smoothly.
