Quoted from solarvalue:

C'mon Franchi's joke was a classic. I bet ZY was cracking up if he was watching, totally his kind of humour.

Yeah, I don’t really understand the sour reaction he’s getting here. Watched the stream, it was clearly a joke, and you can hear the audience laughing too. Seems like most people got it. My take was the hosts got it too and were playing along.

Quoted from DerGoetz:

And you are righteous enough to come here, gloat and not apologize to those who attended nor organized the Twippy awards.
You are better in what respect?

Agreed that the aggressive booing was rude to those who spent so much time putting the show together and just gave Kanada the kind of attention he so desperately craves. But to be fair after monsieurcs caused his disruption he didn't throw a drink in someone's face or assault anyone while being escorted out of the room. Oh, and as far as we know he didn't create multiple accounts on Pinside for trolling purposes. So can we agree that he's better in those specific respects?

Please do share the crabs story!

Share the story, but don't share the crabs.

Lol, Thunderturds got a vote for game of the year. I wonder who that was from?

Well we know all the Supreme votes were o-din, so he’s off the hook ...

Quoted from yancy:

I'm not sure the pure theme category is even necessary though. If we're going to award a company basically for just having a license, shouldn't Jody Dankberg or whoever come up to accept it? I care a lot more about what you DO with the theme, and there's already a category for that. Theme integration is where the designer comes in.

If we get more "original" themes in the future (e.g. BKSR, DI) it's nice to have the option of acknowledging them. Maybe have a "Best Original Theme" category instead? Of course you could question whether BKSR is an "original theme" since it's both licensed and a sequel. And there probably wouldn't be enough of these in a single year to make it much of a contest anyway.

Quoted from Fytr:

I get that this is just a popularity contest

Quoted from flynnibus:

Yup - pretty much why it's a popularity contest in an echo chamber... like most social media these days. Not nearly as bad as the pinside rankings.. but just as credible.. aka not much.

Isn't any contest that's decided through voting a "popularity contest"? I don't see that as a problem, everyone knows that the TWIPYs are fans' choice awards, and aren't guaranteed to reflect the views of the pinball cognoscenti.
