The Second Annual Geekawards: The Best of 2015

Games, movies, and shows, oh my!

2015 will go down as a memorable year for everything geek and everything we love and are passionate about. Star Wars made its triumphant return, gamers proved that home consoles are here for the long hall with record numbers, and we got a glimpse of a busy 2016 that features massive sequels, new franchises, and a new superhero movie just about every month.

The Geekiverse Show and Podcast debuted in early December, along with a whole slew of new cast members and writers. A new logo appeared, in addition to a new website that is debuting in early 2016.

The Geekawards categories were hotly contested in all but two categories – Movie of the Year and Biggest Disappointment/Bust. Thank you for an amazing first full year together and here’s to a geek-tastic 2016! Without further adieu, 2015’s Geekaward Winners are…
