    4) Match of The Year - Doubles: Anything that involves the Minions for sheer entertainment value
    5) Tournament of the Year: The Japan Open, because I was there

    3) Best Kevin Sanjaya/Marcus fan: @minions

    7) Most Dedicated Member: ??
    8) Funniest Member: @Nine Tailed Fox

    11) Most Sincere Poster: @Master
    12) Toughest Debater: I will concede this one to @Cunning Linguist. Keep that venom flowing.

    Means a lot coming from you! I've also got the racket, the Japanese uniform both colors including shorts and the red aerus 3 ... even the undergear he wore once. I only need that NTT-East uniform lol.

    P.S. We've got a few similar choice with respect to the matches. BAC was definitely a highlight!!

    Hey, we are both minions fans. Thanks for nominating me. When minions starts to enter to the court, everyone around the world will instantly open the TV or youtube for live streaming to watch them play. Most of minions' matches are short, but everyone wait for the minions' matches for so long.

    Hmmm, for the Most Dedicated Member, I think you can nominate yourself here. :D

    Looks like @Cunning Linguist will win the awards the most. Where is he? I want to see his unbiased nomination.

    I apologize, this issue is much like German humor. Not a laughing matter.

    1) Best Male Player of 2018: Kento Momota
    2) Best Female Player of 2018: Tai Tzu Ying, more convincing and consistent than Marin, a close second
    3) Match of The Year - Singles: Lin Dan vs Lee CW, All England, as the 'aged' Lin Dan was near his best and the 'aged' LCW was still able to beat Momota three months later at the MAS Open
    4) Match of The Year - Doubles : Han Chengkai/Zhou Haodong beating The Minions for the second time at French Open, another upset so soon after the China Open, exceeding my expectations
    5) Tournament of the Year : Malaysia Open where Lee Chong Wei shone all the way to the final and climaxing with a stirring victory over Momota
    6) Moment of the Year: Akane Yamaguchi's stunning victory over Tai Tzu Ying at French Open,esp G3 and showing little signs of fatigue; a close second is Chen Yufei beating Carolina Marin at China Open, a rousing victory silencing The Screamer
    7) Biggest Upset of the Year : Han Chengkai/Zhao Haodong beat The Minions at China Open, beyond my expectation
    8) Best Breakout Performance of the Year: Chen Yufei at the Fuzhou China Open, a historic victory signaling the revival of CHN WS, hopefully

    And Now for our BC Members
    1) Best Lin Dan fan :
    @Nine Tailed Fox, who else
    2) Best Lee Chong Wei fan : @shooting stroke, @sonnymak - I prefer the older batch, just to name two, to the more recent ones who are just typical die-hard fans
    3) Best Kevin Sanjaya/Marcus fan -
    @minions and @yuquall, a tough one to call for me (I hesitated to include @RoarRa as I can't stand most of his animated gifs, sorry about that)
    4)Best Tai Tzu Ying fan : @s_mair
    5) Best Kento Momota fan -
    @kurako and @Quentin11, a close second
    6) Most Helpful Member - @CLELY, @Master (for his useful,informative posts), @AlanY for his stats
    7) Most Dedicated Member - @CLELY, the tournament threads can't do without her opening post, mostly and literally (let's not take her for granted)
    8) Funniest Member - @Nine Tailed Fox and @OneToughBirdie
    9)Best Analyst on Badminton Central - @galaxyduo and @j4ckie (though I don't always agree with him)
    10) Most Objective Poster - @galaxyduo and @event
    11)Most Sincere Poster - @CLELY ,@Anks - for their honesty, courage and international outlook
    12) Toughest Debater - based on what? Reason and logic, objectivity and balance, cordiality and neutrality, all of it - none. If I have to name one, my choice is @RedShuttle who simply makes his point tersely and be done with it, without bothering to debate or quarrel with anyone, hardly ever.

    (To be frank, I was originally uninterested in this exercise for reasons of my own, and only acceded to somebody's personal request to do so)

    Darn it, I feel like I should be nicer, but then I think I'm a sarcastic person, if he was raised to get butthurt over everything, not my problem. Lol j/k frankly speaking, I could care less about this awards thingy.

    Not sure whats my answers gonna be for all of those nominations since I barely know anyone here. Only visit this site if there is a big tourney which minions taking part innit.

    You know what's funny? I almost nominated you because of your cute minions GIFs, but thought better to nominate myself instead LOL. So good job and please keep posting those. :D:D:D

    You could nominate for the players and leave all the users nominations out.

    I feel like there is not enough members to nominate. Any idea to tell to everyone to nominate?

    Should be?

    Is this a Scientifically determined research done by you or a simple matter of opinion?

    Impossible to reach a conclusion without rushing up the process.

    The General feeling is that @s_mair has been better in covering up TTY's losses. He has always had better excuses lined up like the ''The Shoe-makers screwed up this time, the racquet tension was too high, the motivation was at it's lowest possible in (insert any majors)''.

    While @visor is all about appreciating her loose grip and fawning over her 10 pack abs.

    S_mair sells his points better while visor plays it safe at times.
