    Surprise!

    I'm not waiting until the two animated Short Treks are released. Without any firm release dates, we could be waiting for a while.

    So, without further ado, here are the categories you can nominate for. But here are the rules first.

    The Rules
    1. You can only make one nomination per category.

    2. You don't have to vote for every category in the same post (you can break it up), but you can only vote for each category once.

    3. You are not allowed to edit (or change) your nominations, once you make them. Posts that have been edited will have all nominations in them disqualified. If you have typos, just leave them.
