After the jump are the winners of the more fun, minor awards. We're borrowing Nathaniel R's method of highlighting first place in gold, 2nd in silver and in some cases, 3rd place in bronze. Before the jump, see some of the Fangirl Academy members themselves present some of the fun awards! Then keep on eye on our Twitter account for the announcements of big winners, which will also presented by some members of the Academy.

Editors note: Looks like for some reason you have to click on the post to view the videos anyway. Ohhhh blogspot.
