GMA Nominations Announced – TSA Recognised

The Games Media Awards nominees have been announced this morning. The GMAs are an annual ceremony in which outlets, broadcasts and individual writers are rewarded for the work they’ve done through the year.

It gives me immense pleasure to be able to report that TheSixthAxis has been nominated in the category for Best Website. We’re all very happy to be on the list alongside IGN, Gamespot, Eurogamer, CVG and a couple of other independent sites that it’s also very nice to see recognised.

  1. Seriously well done. Personally I think getting the nomination is a much bigger achievement than actually winning, since this is the part voted for by the public.

    Big well done, I’ve always been a big supporter of this website, so I am very glad to see you on the list and deservedly so :)

  2. Congrats to everyone. Well, deserved guys :) If you don’t win, we riot :D

    • Rougue comma!

    • I call dibs on the 4th floor of TSA towers to riot on. :D As i want to loot TSA’s supply of teabags,porn and biscuits. :)

      • Give me a call and i’ll be there!
        I LOVE BISCUITS!!!
        =D

      • TSA’s supply of porn?

        what, you’ve got a truck handy? (^_^)

  3. Stunned. Absolutely stunned.

  4. congratulations! well done

  5. Can you ask Ben to remove the spaces from “The Sixth Axis”? My OCD is going into hyper overdrive.
    ;)

    Kudos to all involved. Well deserved.

    • Yeah, that made the hairs on teh back of my neck stand up too.

      Nice to see it there in whatever guise though! :)

  6. Congrualations TSA. :D But what are those newspapers doing up there. They hate gaming and have branded the entire industry as murderers. >:(

    If TSA wins, do we all get a large cake each? If TSA don’t win, i will burn TSA towers to the ground and put a horse’s head in peter’s bed. So no pressure there. :p
