That is my humble opinion. Actually, it's my not so humble opinion, because it is blatantly obvious. When "other" in 3 categories comes from the same anime, Re:Zero, and it was glaringly obvious that the selection listed in "other" should've been a nominee, it confirms the deliberate and blatant exclusion of serious competition in order to ease the path and clear the way for the eventual winner.

What would've happened if the 3 Re:Zero "other" 3rd place finishes had been properly included? And what about some of the other "Others" and obvious ones which didn't get included? Might results have been different? I think they would have in a number of instances, as should any reasonable person.

And the award for best Yuri couple goes to....
YURI ON ICE
Everyone: But that isn't Yuri
CR: Did I fucking stutter?

Best villain goes to.....
The ice in YURI ON ICE
Everyone: But that makes no sense
Cr: Does it look like I care?

In addition to all the posts in the Site News thread that announced the Awards and the Awards results, there are already two threads in the Anime forum regarding the Awards, so I'm closing this one.

To discuss the results, including your perception of them being "rigged" (personally I just think it was due to to first time blunders and not thinking things through completely rather than any deliberate "rigging") you may want to join in here:

/forumtopic-979279/crunchyroll-anime-award-winners-spoilers

or here (it's an earlier thread from before the winners were announced, expressing concerns about the options offered, and has some new activity post-winner-announcement.)
