It's me your host once again! Here's a quick summarization of as to why I believe everyone who was nominated was nominated! These are unofficial explanations and just serve to help educate people who might not know all them details.
I'll update tomorrow with the rest of them, I'm tired but here is some of them.

The Big Bois:
Community Member of the Year - Should be obvious, but the member of the region who are both in RP and in all other aspects just scream “NSEU”. They’re the mascot for the region. The year would have been way worse without them being a part of our community.
Czech Slavia - Czech is one the boiz . Constantly helping folks out, making some pretty iconic characters (Such as Premier Commissioner Sofie Čikarová
and President (aka Queen) for Life Albína Reiserová) , and has been kicking butt at the commission.....all the while running some pretty entertaining RP. (((These was some statement here that was asked to be removed.)))
Spain - The one....the only /Spain/. The man like some of the other nominees is a Roleplay Tank. Constantly pushing the region to the max, getting involved wherever he can (just see all the summits he starts with literally everyone.). The NSEU wouldn't be the way it is without him making sure the council is kept alive, the Commission elections pushed to the max, and EuroVoice (even though he totally stole the director position) is as good as it ever gets.
Inquista - Inquista is Inquista. There's no way for me to do him justice......he's the Regina George of the EU. If you don't know why he was nominated I can't help.
Reitzmag - Reitzmag is like the Embodiment of RP EU as a person, constantly picking fights with wars in RP, and defending their honor about trains. They also you know make some pretty cool graphic art, served valiantly in the commission
Istkalen - Istkalen is the most wholesome member in the EU...but also the most gruesome. They bring entertainment to the region, and push the limits of what it means to be a part of....I don't think many people declare war on the entire region lol.
Roleplay of the Year - This is the Roleplay that just made everyone go, this was awesome, the most long lasting roleplay, with lasting impacts, great writing, and memorable storylines!
The Banishment of the Barringtons
The Spanish-Yosai Strait Crisis
The Invasion and Occupation of Istkalen
EuroVoice 40 Results Show
The Great Heist
Writer of the Year - The writer who not necessarily wrote the most, but had the highest quality writing that made you go “wow this could have been a book” or a novella or something. ‘They good write’.
Brum Brum (United Duchies/Strathae)
RP Character of the Year - The one character whose meme, the realest, all about that bass. They may not be a world leader, but they definitely lead their way into our hearts.
RP Nation of the Year - The most iconic nation in Roleplay this year, they just are the standard for what we want for our own nations, and for the people who look into joining this region.
New Roleplayer of the Year - Whose joined since January 1st that you think deserves recognition for all the cool things they’ve done!
Gadalland and Aspern - All around well rounded roleplayer, just wished he popped on Discord more lol. Definitely a strong contender.
Kaitsja - The best 'catch' of them all, they even came back to us.
Yosai - Shook the region's geopolitics by challenging Spain for the Strait, and constantly making new additions to the RP scene.
Gania - Just some constant good RP, and good on them for trying to get involved as much as possible, you go dude!
Commissioner of the Year - Let’s recognize the commissioner who helped our region the most with new ideas, roleplayers, or repped our region in the best way possible. It’s not always easy to work in a democracy.
Most Entertaining Roleplay of the Year - This RP was funny or just captivating, it will be referenced probably for years for some meme.
Plastic Surgery Woman (Expulsion from Council) Bill
Simon and Mikaela Hit the City
Kligenberg - Reiserová meeting in Prague
Copala City - The Exodus of the Nicolezians - Bomb Alley
Most Likely to Make You Confused Roleplay of the Year - The one storyline that left you with more questions than answers.
Catch-All Nomination for the Nation of Istkalen - Read news posts coming out of Istkalen now explain to me what exactly happens there.....
Asianization of Reitzmag - Lol does anyone actually understand what happened here, I just know somehow the PM of New Zealand is now in charge of a nation that apparently was always....you know....Korean.
Drommud Kaas War - We lost track 10 years ago, and now there is freaking pirates lol.
Catch-All Nomination for the Nation of Strathae _ I....I just don't know how to explain or justify the way Brum makes nations..
That One RP You Want to Forget of the Year - Sometimes there’s just that one roleplay you want to forget either because it's embarrassing or disgusting but really we should bring it up all over again.
Copala City From the Perspective of Reitzmag - I personally count this as starting with the Reitzmic Civil War, then the Bombing of New Moreland by Inquista, then for whatever reason Reitzmag signed it over to a foreign power who didn't care about the slowly self-governing body and eventually I'm sure Reitzmag rather pretend it just never happened.
Occupied Istkalen From the Perspective of Vayinaod and Istkalen - Honestly I was in it, and I didn't know what exactly happened lol so I kinda want to pretend it wasn't a thing...I'm sure Istkalen regrets it to sometimes.
The Wedding of Carlos and Prince Tommy- For an RP striving to be the next Ibiza or the next Nicolezian coronation it fell flat, I'm sure the ministry of EV will take it out back to get shot.
The Militant Mandy of the Year - The person who was always ready to tango it out with their military….they probably didn’t always win.
Reitzmag - Come on....you know why.
Istkalen - Declared war on the entire region as the result of a party where people got high as f***. Plus I think economic war counts? They nearly cancelled the region's Rare Earth mineral trade.
Inimicus - Constant military maneuvers to always end up on top, Crimea'd North Diessen and no one said a word, got involved in Neo-Venetia, they just you know how real handsy across the region.
Angleter - I think they got nominated for Dromund Kaas and Neo-Venetia.
Most Helpful Award - The person who is always willing to help newcomers or veterans alike, no matter the medium or topic.
Vayinaod - IDK why I got nominated...I'm a snarky SOB
Icholasen -Icholasen is a wholesome person who I will protect no matter what, they're so kind and always there.
Mennrimiak - Unironically Mennrimiak is the perfect person to be Foreign Affairs because he knows a good tempo to introduce people, always gives answers whenever newbies ask questions, and he isn't a drama llama.
Fremet - He's just a nice guy Heart .
Most Likely to Point Out that Spelling Error You Made 10 years Ago - Casually mention that one tweet or forum post you made ten years ago, don’t worry they’ll find it….usually pretty scarily quick.
Vayinaod - Look I forum stalk I get it.
Istkalen - I mentioned some vague news article from like 2014 and they found it in like eight minutes, manually searching....
Mennrimiak - He has found some of us on twitter and knows random forum things....
You Get A Post, You Get A Post, Everyone Gets a Post Award - The most active contributor both in posts, threads, discord convos, repping the region across discord you name it!
Brum Brum (United Duchies and Strathae) - Always on discord, always discussing RP, always got something brewing.
Spain - Holy cow Batman! That's a lot of posts!
Istkalen -Jesus has you SEEN some of the size of their posts, they make Inquista and the DU quake in their boots.
Reitzmag -They're always up to something.....and it gives me a headache.
XTreme Gamer of the Year - They always are on that grind, got to Level 69 of the Sims ya know?
Ruthund - Among Us Champion....nuff said.
Icholasen - City Skylines and Sims player of the century
Czech Slavia - A gaming chad and the biggest anime nerd ever
, but seriously they play a variety of things.
Istkalen - Honestly I don't know why they were nominated lmao......someone feel free to message me a way better reason. I checked the chat and its been like five months since they said anything in Gamers Rise Up lol.
Vayinaod - I play games and I'm an anime nerd.....
They’re Here in our Hearts I’m Sure Award - Lurkers, or those members that just simply disappeared long ago with no explanation are eligible. The ones with the most impact but left us too early.
Leagio - Is this one still allowed? He's lowkey come back? Leagio was chill then disappeared now he is back.
Pax Aurea - Its been eight years....
they're still on NS with their nation, and they used to be the Girl Boss of the region when it came to RP...but much like the Avatar....they just disappeated.
Malborya - lol see the reasons for Alkharya
Alkharya - lol see the reasons for Malborya
""the guy who wrote "I will Prevent nudity lol (RP)" Not even sure if he ever RPed"" - he literally said this and then disappeared....nice meme Czech I guess.
Halsberg - My boyfriend......I miss him dearly.....a True Meme Boy....the Czech back in the Days of 2014....left us too soon.
The Artist of the Year - Lots of our members are into drawing or graphical design, nominate those and their works that you think define the Art Nerds of the region!
Reitzmag - Makes cool art.
Spain - Makes cool art.
Inquista - Makes iconic meme art and was the creator of Euroball.
Czech Slavia - Is the Da Vinci of the Region.
Mod/Admin of the Year - It takes a lot to wrangle y’all, show some love to the mod or admin you think deserves this appreciation the most!
Vayinaod - lol why.
Inquista - Regina George runs this school.
Duxburian Union - The Dad of the Region....he keeps us whipsnappers in order.
Angleter - The Daddy of the Region and they keep us sane, together, and saw this region through its toughest times.
EU Hall of Fame - Let this be a historic character, RP, Nation or Member, what is the one thing you want enshrined to be hoisted to the top of the podium to represent the EU.
Angleter (both the nation and player)
Acwellan Devoy - The iconic Duxburian Cllr. and Council Speaker...he smoked weed every day on the floor of the council. Really just a
Eric Pickles and his assassination and resurrection back to life. - Eric Pickles is one of the most prolific cllrs and commissioners in our history, and the player who RPed him was just as dedicated to the region. Eric Pickles brought the 20 amendments to the Cannabis Act, unheard of at that point in EU history, and then he died....and got brought back to life because he was so awesome...I think he dated a pornstar too?
The UNSR/Nicolezian Ministry of EV - Lol the OG Ministry of EV roleplay was amazing and showed the cutthroat Nicolezian politics....RIP Doc Mustard....and the UNSR has redefined a lot of regional politics and brought a renewed Icholasen that many would argue was/is a lot better.
Emperor Artabanos - Okay.....Artie has been iconic since his rise to the top in Inimician politics...like I don't really remember the Inimician emperors before him besides the fact one allegedly died from Soap on some stairs, Artie is a Persona and has been a staple in the EU whenever he is around. A complex character with wants, desires, and overall is the literal gold standard for what we seek to do with our characters.
Most Imagine Player/Nation - Submitted by Spain - The title is pretty self-explanatory and doesn't need some snarky explanation from me!
Ruthund - Just read their factbook, thats all you need to do...seriously dedication the definition.
Inimicus- They've developed a system of political intrigue and has our total captivation on par with the Roman Empire, and its literally just as shakespearan they deserve massive props for that.
Istkalen - Istkalen no matter the variation has always been.....creative...with their work and at the very least entertaining. The way they describe the way that Istkalen works is the stuff an anthropology professor dreams of would be discussed in my opinion.
Brum Brum - Okay who dedicates the time he does to all the statistics in their nations, justifies all those stats, and uses them to drive so much RP? Brum....plus who else makes a nation who has an entire national RP about killing cats?
Duxburian Union - The DU has had a consistently intriguing and layered worldbuilding for the DU since its inception, everything stacks ontop itself in a fashion that creates chapters of history, and genres of fiction intertwined. An example for everyone to look too.
