2007 4BR Awards — The Results

All had enough Christmas pud and turkey? Then sit back and relax as we reveal the award winners for 2007. Maestro please.....

Awards

 

Once more the 4BR team has spent the last day and a half wading through the thousands of nominations we received from our readers from all over the world.

Many thanks for taking the time to log in and tell us who you thought were the best in each of the categories.

As always there were a couple of people who did try and circumvent the voting process as always with multiple entries, but they were not successful, whilst we had more than a chuckle or two at some of the nominations put forward as well—some were inspired in their deviousness.

Tear stained acceptance speeches

Still, the results have been checked and double-checked and now that you have had your fair share of turkey and Christmas pudding we can reveal who will be making the valedictory tear stained acceptance speeches….

Thanks to everyone for taking the time once more to vote, and congratulations to the winners.
