Team Fortress 2 Heavy is Wishmaking Fairy!

Team Fortress 2 Heavy is Wishmaking Fairy!

Valve's second annual Saxxy awards finalists showcase medicine, dumpsters, high-fives and sandvich.

Valve's Saxxy awards finalists have been chosen, and the winners now have Saxxys of their very own with which to swat the foe. The overall champion will be picked during the Spike VGA awards on December 7th, but as it's Monday and you could probably do with a laugh, feast your eyes on the winner of the comedy category: The Wishmaker, by Maxime Lebled.

The other comedy nominees, as well as the drama, replay and action shorts, can be found over here. The Saxxys are awards given to users of Source Filmmaker, who put together a short - no longer than 5 minutes - feature. These shorts are then voted on by the community to determine the nominees.

Valve picks the winners, and this year had opened up the field a bit to include Best Original Universe as a category. Unfortunately for the makers of Elements there just weren't enough entrants to make the Best Original Universe viable this year; perhaps next year will see more interest in the category.

Congratulations to the winners, Meet the Dumpster Diver (Action), Epic High Five Fail (Replay), Bad Medicine (Drama), and, of course, The Wishmaker. Best of luck in the VGA Awards!

Payback's a bitch eh Scout?
By the way, I wouldn't recommend wishing for a bunch of those either.

I wish for new construction PDA in TF2

From flailing arms to this. TF2 Machinima sure has come a long way.

I really liked this one for the action category

Word of advice for anyone planning to watch all the nominees, do "Drama" BEFORE you do "Comedy"

You'll thank me later.

Do then the Heavy is now a fairy god parent huh? Really interesting to see how far Valve Machinima has come.
Also, this is relevant:

"Make wish!" is totally going to be the next meme.

dat Drama category... oh man.

I actually bumped into the guy who did the music for 'Wishmaker' in a server, so many people were just letting him stab em to see the Saxxy effect :D

I really liked Story of a Sentry though, and Till Death Do Us Part. Ah well :/

and here i am later, thanking you.

But really, why did bad medicine win the drama category? Till death do us part and Son of a Sentry are much better i think. If only i knew about this sooner so i could have voted.
Of course, perhaps im missing the meaning behind the whole thing, but it wasn't particularly clear and the conflict is literally imaginary, and the resolution kinda comes out of nowhere, and almost seems for comedic effect. But thats just me.

This vid was definitely in the top 2 for comedy though. (im torn between this and meet the saxton).

I'm also kinda curious as to why "Electric Creep" was categorized as "Drama", since it's more surreal than dramatic.

Prehaps the next set of Saxxy awards should feature a "Other" category as well.

He deserved the saxxy. he's a great animator and never fails to make me laugh. the action guy was great too.

or perhaps add some more categories besides a catch all other, because you can do a LOT with SFM (considering everything movies can cover, which is pretty much everything), and i would like to see more entries and more variety in the saxxy vids. Not to say there isn't variety now, but more is better, and SFM's capabilities mean we should get some very interesting results if there are more options for aspiring saxxy film-makers.

Those were all pretty good.
Though I liked this one the best: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=qNRiO3ppqS8
