    As I am sure many of you members will remember, we had the very successful Book 1 Air Awards last year once it all aired.

    http://avatarthelastairbenderonline.com/legend-korra-book-1-air-awards/

    We will be doing the same for Book 2. What this thread is for is to prepare for the awards. Mainly what categories should be added and removed to make it more suitable for Book 2 Spirits.
    The plan is for the awards post to go up on November 24th the Sunday after the finale. Voting as before will take place in the comments on that post and will be open for 2 weeks or so.

    So here is the list of awards for Book 1
    -Best Main Character (Between Korra, Bolin, Mako, Tenzin, Lin, Asami, Tarrlok and Amon)-

    -Best Minor Character (Every other character) -

    -Best Location-

    -Best Quote (name the character who says it)-

    -Best Animal-

    -Best Episode-

    -Funniest Moment-

    -Most Emotional Moment-

    -Best Fight-

    -Most Shocking Moment-

    -Best ATLA reference-

    -Weirdest/Most Random Moment-

    -Best Shipping/Romantic Moment-

    -Best Airbending Moment-

    -Best Earthbending Moment-

    -Best Waterbending Moment-

    -Best Firebending Moment-

    -Best non-bender fighting moment-

    -Most Attractive Male Character-

    -Most Attractive Female Character-

    -Best Technology-

    -Most disappointing thing about Book 1-

    -Most surprising part of Book 1-

    -Most Epic Moment-

    -Best Character Development-

    -Best Voice Actor-

    -Best Music Piece-

    -

    Personally I think Best Technology should be removed as it is not as big of a focus this book as Book 1 and a Best Spirit award should be added for obvious reasons. I think the best Main character award will require a bit of discussion as to who should be up for it. I.E should Wan be considered a Main character, he basically had 2 episodes to himself.

    Depending on how things go I think the Best Moment of each element may have to be cut down to one award for best Bending Moment, just because we have not got much Earthbending especially.

    Thoughts, feel free to make any suggestions to what should be added and removed/ altered

    I say best main character: Korra, Bolin, Mako, Tenzin, (no Lin), Asami, Unalaq, Wan.

    Best supporting character: Varrick, Eska, Desna, Bumi, Kya, Jinora, Tonraq, (no Senna)

    Best less than 5 minute character: (Anyone not listed above) i.e. Carrot Guy, Zhu Li.

    Best Character: Open to all characters.

    It seems unfair to hurt a characters greatness through amount of screen time.

    I like that idea apart from the general character award which seems a bit much, considering it would just be one of the other 3.

    Ok so I think we have some definite changes.

    Added in/
    -Best Spirit
    -Best New Character (newly introduced in Book 2)

    Removed/
    -Best Technology

    What I need your advice on would be this

    So you think there was enough bending moments to justify an individual award for best moment of each element and non bender?

    Still Unsure on if we should separate Minor into Supporting and 5 minute characters?

    What about Best Animal, not including spirit animals, did we see that many new animals. Perhaps the award should just be renamed to Best Animal character, to make it clear that it is not about new animals and more about involvement.

    @airspeed i think we have enough moments for individual bending moments, and the animal thing is good. I also think there should be a best bad guy momment.

    That is a nice idea, Most Sinister Moment or something like that.

    I think this is the final list for Friday, let me know if you disagree with the lists for Main and Supporting character, if I left someone out or added someone in.

    I felt bad about putting Asami in the supporting role, but I just feel like she would have no chance in the main character slot and her arc was minor compared to others. Varrick for a similar reason, I feel he would be lost in the main group.

    -Best Main Character (Between Korra, Bolin, Mako, Tenzin, Unalaq, Wan, Raava, Vaatu )-

    -Best Supporting Character (Asami, Varrick, Eska, Desna, Lin, Tonraq, Raiko, Jinora, Kya, Bumi) -

    -Best Minor Character (Any other non spirit character) -

    -Best Location-

    -Best Quote (name the character who says it)-

    -Best Animal-

    -Best Episode-

    -Funniest Moment-

    -Most Emotional Moment-

    -Best Fight-

    -Most Shocking Moment-

    -Best ATLA reference-

    -Weirdest/Most Random Moment-

    -Best Shipping/Romantic Moment-

    -Best Airbending Moment-

    -Best Earthbending Moment-

    -Best Waterbending Moment-

    -Best Firebending Moment-

    -Best non-bender fighting moment-

    -Most Attractive Male Character-

    -Most Attractive Female Character-

    -Best Spirit (Past Avatars don’t count)-

    -Most disappointing thing about Book 2-

    -Most surprising part of Book 2-

    @airspeed I am good with the most of the character group choices but not putting Jinora in a group doesn’t make sense, considering Lin and Raiko get a group and Jinora had a bigger role.

    Ok it is time to plan the Book 3 awards, with double the episodes each week, it means we are just 3 weeks away from award voting opening.

    We need to decided if there are any awards to be added in and any to be taken out. Here is the book 2 awards list

    http://avatarthelastairbenderonline.com/book-two-spirits-awards/

    As of now I don’t see any reason for Best Technology to return after we removed it for Book 2. Best Spirit right now has little to no candidates, but we will need to see more episodes.

    Potential changes
    Remove Best Spirit unless the number of spirits picks up.

    Any suggestions?

    I agree with the spirits. Location should be fun. With all the villains we could do best villain.
