And my own personal awards in other categories (these are the ones that are shown during the commercial break).

BEST TITLE: Crimes of Fashion.

BEST DQ'D SCRIPT: 6PM

BEST REVIEW EFFORT BY A NEWBIE - Matthew Taylor - yeoman's work there. Good job, mate.

MOST OVER-USED REVIEW TERMS - "wrylie". This was a major upset as I expected orphan to take this category down easily.

MOST PREDICTABLE WRITER OF A SCRIPT - tie between me and Jeff.

BEST SCRIPT SITE: As always - Simply Scripts. 10th consecutive win!

Congrats Warren, Crazy In Love was one of my favs!

Same to Paul, Blessing was an awesome read!

Happy to see my top four among the Writer's top six.

Well done to everyone, this OWC was tough.

And thanks to Pia and Don for this amazing challenge!

Never thought I could write comedy and I almost made Zack choke on his coffee. That felt like a win.

Congrats Warren! Well deserved, it’s a good script.

Same to you, Paul. Well done.

I’m surprised mine is up there, it must be a case of people voting for roms over non-roms.  

Great challenge, I think we all learned a lot from it. Thanks Don and Pia!

Those that read and reviewed ZERO should not be allowed to participate again.

Well done, Warren,

Comfortably the best up here in my opinion and that's a high score too. Left me with that sickly-sweet-loving feeling that you get after watching a decent romcom, but it has brains too and wasn't a straight liner.

Done, lad. Best of luck with it as I reckon you could have something there.

Cam

P.S. Sorry, well in Paul too! Also a good one

P.P.S. and thanks Don!!!! As always, great work (and also for the name)

Congrats Warren.

And to everyone else who entered and participated.

And, lastly, very sorry to all who read through my mess of an entry. Rom-com is NOT my genre. Lol.
