HOTOE losing out to the Starter set for production values kind of sets the tone for the multiple facepalms ..not surprising.

I can help! I think the phrase you were struggling for was "Congratulations to the winners! I'm very happy for you!" :)

Some awesome winners in there. Congrats to them and the nominees. I really need to get my hands on atomic robo to play with the kids, one I haven't heard of before.

Interesting to see DnD do so well after the last few years of paizo dominance!

Congrats to all the winners! I have to say though, I own the 5E Starter Set, I love the 5E starter set, but Horror on the Orient Express is the best box set in years. Its better than the Pathfinder Beginner Box, its better than the Dragon Age box sets, its the best one since the old TSR days, and it losing to the 5E Starter Set for production values is a travesty (in the context of an awards ceremony).

Congrats to all the winners and nominees!! D&D 5 deserves these accolades and the whole team deserves thanks from their stellar work.

Wow, I've never seen such a total domination by any one company! 5th edition appears to have really resonated with a ton of fans. Good job, WotC! :)

D&D really made a comeback this year - they did put in a lot of time and effort, and it shows. Congrats to WotC's crew, and to all the winners for 2015!

Agreed, WoTC should be proud of the various products they've put out for 5e, top game in my book and many others apparently.

Lots of well-deserved accolades for 5th Edition. However, I'm not clear how a game that sports books that LITERALLY HAVE NO COVERS won for "Best Production Values." :p

No real surprises other than the Starter Set production values and the fan choice for Best Publisher. WotC beating out Paizo is a bit of a shock.
Congrats to WotC.

Actually, now I look, only seeing Paizo pick up three Silvers is a bit of a surprise. Quite a fall Ennie wise.

The thing is, if you are voting for the ENNIES and you come to a category you only have one thing in it, or have only seen one thing in it. You'll vote for it. The Starter Set was very popular and it's all over the place, so yeah. Vote for what you know. So any fan voted awards are pretty much coming down to who sold the most, exceptions aside. Websites, podcasts and to a lesser extent free stuff.
