Russ reminds me of Tim Nordwind of Ok Go fame. That's a positive thing, by the way.

Glad to see you guys all enjoyed yourselves. The Escapist really deserved those rewards, and I think we're all proud of you.

So cool, you went for the awards and missed putting content on the site...
Wow, a week without Zero Punctuation makes some people really bitter.
Some people drink, others listen to a fast-talking misanthrope.

Onyer, Escapistians.

Escapists, you guys deserve it! Your site is one of the best on the 'net!

Congrats on winning, but please get Yachtzee back to doing his thing before heads start rolling and the sawed-off shotguns come out.

Very nicely done guys, congratulations on the award. Loved the 5 words maximum on the speeches. If only the Oscars, Golden Globes, etc. would impose something like that. They'd have to work towards it though, starting at a 5 minute maximum then working back from there.

Can you imagine most Hollywood Starlet's 5 word speaches?

Not everyone was invited to attend. Also, not everyone in the picture is actually Escapist staff. Mike Capps, for example, is some sort of machinist. Makes gears, or so I'm told.

Wow, Russ seems really into it.
They were serving the good scotch. :)

Also, it was a damn fine party. Also, also, it was incredibly good and wonderful to finally see The Escapist earn recognition for the hard work we've put into it week after week for the past few years. We've been working toward this for a long time, and it was an honor and a privilege to be recognized.

anyone got pics of yahtzee at the awards? according to fullyramblomatic, he had a suit on and that would be pretty awesome to see a man wearing a fedora while wearing a suit.

also, that escapist team pic is pretty awesome :)

Congratulations, Escapist; I knew you were meant for great things.

Tonight: The Webbies, tomorrow: The World!
...

Wow. One of the 5 words we considered was Today, the Webbies. Tomorrow the...

Thanks for all the support, all! Now I feel all happy. You've made my weekend. As Russ mentioned, it's been a lot of work, but interesting times. But it's really exciting to receive this award just as our third birthday is coming up. I cannot believe it's been three years.

Andraste, the dress suits you. And Russ, not what I had pictured you'd look like (I blame the avatar!)... oh, and nice haircut by the way; it suits you...

Finally, congrats The Escapist. You're finally getting the recognition you deserve for your excellent work. (Re-reads the Orange Juice Principle...)

Okay so Sara Fields & Julianne Greer are hot O,o
But cmon. No Yahtzee? Not to inflate his ego but I would venture a guess that most of us only visit this site for his reviews.

See, it's better already. I know how it can be enforced too: the person who hands them the award has a hidden cattle prod. If they hit double digits, Zap!
