Now lets recap the 4 book’s results, I will go through the results category by category listing ¬†the winners.

Note/ The winners below were the results of 2 weeks of open voting.

Best Main Character

One of the biggest Awards each year, who is the best  of the best when it comes to the characters with a lot of screentime. This is a battle between the series regulars like Korra and Mako and the characters specific to each Book. Characters like Amon and Tarrlok for Book 1 and Unalaq and Wan for Book 2.

Book 1 Winner – Korra
Book 2 Winner – Wan
Book 3 Winner – Korra
Book 4 Winner – Korra

Best Supporting Character

The main characters get most of the attention, but often the supporting characters become huge fan favourites, they may not get as much screentime, but what they do get they use effectively.

Book 1 Winner – General Iroh II
Book 2 Winner – Varrick
Book 3 Winner – Jinora
Book 4 Winner – Varrick

Best Minor Character

What about those characters who only get a few scenes here and there, less than any main or supporting character? The great thing about our fandom is that we care about all characters no matter how long we know them for. If this had a more fancy name it would probably be “The Cabbage Merchant Award for Best Minor Character”

Book 1 Winner – In the Book 1 Awards we only had Main and Supporting
Book 2 Winner – Zhu Li
Book 3 Winner – Varrick
Book 4 Winner – Meelo

Best Spirit

This was a new award introduced for the Book 2 Awards, spirits were not really part of Book 1, 3 or 4 in a big capacity so we took it out.

Book 1 Winner – Not used
Book 2 Winner – Raava
Book 3 Winner – Not used
Book 4 Winner – Not used

Best Technology

This award was used in Book 1, but we decided to take it out for Book 2 as technology was not really a focus at all.

Book 1 Winner – Equalist Electrified Weaponry – Shock Gloves and Kali Sticks
Book 2 Winner – Not used
Book 3 Winner – Not used
Book 4 Winner – Not used

Best Character Development 

While the best main character focuses more on popularity, this award goes to the character who really earned it. The fan favourite may not have had the most development, this goes to a character who had an important and meaningful character arc.

Book 1 Winner – Korra
Book 2 Winner – Korra
Book 3 Winner – Korra
Book 4 Winner – Korra

One of only 2 awards where the same thing one all 4 awards.

Best Quote

When I correct these awards to count up who won, this award always gets the most individual choices usually 50+ quotes per Book. Goes to show that sometimes a funny quote wins, and other times a very meaningful quote wins out.

Book 1 Winner – “When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change” – Aang
Book 2 Winner – “Do The Thing!” – Varrick
Book 3 Winner – “As long as I’m still breathing it’s not over!” – Tenzin
Book 4 Winner – “I need to attach this ring…. to your finger. Zhu Li Moon, will you do the thing for the rest of our lives?” – Varrick

Best Location

Book 1 Winner – Pro Bending Arena
Book 2 Winner – The Tree Of Time and surrounding area
Book 3 Winner – Zaofu
Book 4 Winner – Republic City Post New Spirit Portal

Best Animal

The unique hybrid animals are such a trademark of Avatar, so it was obvious that this would be an award. The key question each time is do people vote for the animal that gets character focus and is named, or just a cool looking animal.

Book 1 Winner – Naga
Book 2 Winner – Naga
Book 3 Winner – Sky Bison, specifically the baby Bison
Book 4 Winner – Badgermoles

Best Episode

I always find this a fascinating award to see what wins. Because the voting starts immediately after the finale ends, I always wonder do people just go for the power and emotion of the finale which is the newest thing or look back at an earlier episode that is considered a classic.

Most Disappointing thing about the Book

The first of 2 more opinion focused awards, this one is the one negative award.

Book 1 Winner – The general feeling that that book was a little rushed and that there was not enough time to properly develop everything set up
Book 2 Winner – Book 2 having a slow start in comparison to the amazing run of episodes from Beginnings Onwards.
Book 3 Winner –¬†The general feeling that that book was a little rushed and that there was not enough time to properly develop everything set up, with a big emphasis on the lack of character for the villains.
Book 4 Winner – ¬†The general feeling that many of the supporting and minor characters were left with their stories unresolved. Emphasis on the lack of exploration of Baatar Jr’s issues with his father, showing Jinora and Kai’s relationship, a final scene for Bolin and Opal’s relationship.

Most Surprisingly Good aspect of the Book

The thing about the Book that really surprised you with how much you enjoyed it.

Book 1 Winner – How great and integral to the plot the whole Yakone psychic bloodbending plot was. It added so much intrigue and mystery to the book, with Amon and Tarrlok turning out to be his sons.
Book 2 Winner – How much this book changed how we think about the Avatar world. The Spirit Portals being left open, the loss of the past Avatars and finding out the origin of the Avatar. Things are different going into Book 3.
Book 3 Winner – How intense and dramatic things got in the second half of the book, characters being killed really ramping things up and making you fear for so many characters.
Book 4 Winner – How well this book brought The Legend Of Korra as a series to an end. A great ending to a great series.
