    VotF

    IMO, a good nominee has been forgotten: though the trilogy sucked, I liked the Balancesheet - Assembler subplot in TBHW a lot. For me, it was the best part of the storyline, and I think bad works of fiction should be nominated for rewards they reserve just as often as brilliant ones. Don't be insulted, GL, but for example the FX oscars usually go to otherwise bad movies (plotwise).
    So for future nominees, I suggest picking at least some awards (like - I dunno - best use of Solo kids or something) not so great books like the Corellian Trilogy could win. It'd be boring for all the awards to go to MAS, Zahn, ALlston, Salvatore and maybe KJA.
    BTW, great idea!

    Ok. I feel dumb asking this, but could someone give a really brief synopsis of the sub plots? The only one I can even remember is Vison of the Future.

    I vote Vision of the Future all the way, baby!
    Red Fox, not remembering the subplots of the other three nominees might be a hint as to how good and memorable they are, IMHO. Just a thought.

    I see this thread is still going strong, and it deserves it?
    When the SITH did Jacen and Tenel Ka ever kiss? What book, what page if possible?I think I missed that.
    Hey, Jaded! I think you should cut time between tallies down to one day, and maybe have two awards to vote on simultaneously, to give us more to do.

    Yeah I was thinking of that to FG

    And now we continue on our path to EU fame with our second category

    Best Star Wars Kiss

    And the nominees are-

    Luke/Callista, Children of the Jedi
    Luke/Mara, Vision of the Future
    Luke/Mara, Onslaught
    Leia/Han, The Courtship of Princess Leia

    For future refrences I must say that I will try to do my best to succeed requests and opinions are welcome but the nominees chosen aren't chosen just by me. SERIOUS research has taken place for these and if a certain thing was not nominated, please don't ask to change or make me feel bad about it I try to fufill many requests as possible yet we only can have a limited number of nominations for an award.

    Thank you for tuning into the 2000 EU Awards and now we take a word from our sponsers.

    Hey, don't worry, you're doing a great job.
    My vote goes to Luke - Mara in VotF (haven't read Onslaught yet!)

    Okay, so I'm a bit biased (all right, make that more than a bit), but... I've gotta say that Luke and Mara's kiss in Vision of the Future was the best.

    I didn't like the nominees for "best sub-plot" at all. I would have voted for Jedi search, the Han and Chewie in the mines subplot...

    Best kiss?errrrr...

    Sorry DV I tried my best. There are thousands of different qualifications and I try my best to flesh out and really find ther true meaning behind the categories. I am sorry your choice for Best Subplot wasn't nominated. It the way things go.

    PS- hehehe wild_karrade I actually beat you to a topic. I will have to get used to that!
