The 19th annual DICE Awards took place last night, with the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences shining a light on some of the best videogames and individual developers from the past year.

In addition to videogames being honored, a few actual humans took some awards. Shigeru Miyamoto was given a much deserved Lifetime Achievement Award, and Hideo Kojima entered the Hall of Fame.

Anyway, below is a round-up of what games won, and what games got drunk and threw up on the red carpet (hint: none). Winner on top, and the other nominations for the category below. You probably don’t need to be told that, but better safe than sorry.
