First of all, I'd like to thank everybody who participated in this on either side of the aisle and congratulate everybody who was nominated as well as the winners. The Awards were particularly close this year and I actually had to cast a tiebreaker in several categories, which is rare to begin with and probably happened more this year than all the other times I've done this combined.
