Go Nellie! Good for you matey.

There's an agency head who deserves a bit of recognition. Been doing the business for years. Bryan C's done a good job too. Who are the other two chicks? Sorry, but never heard of either of them.

Suspicious lack of comments for this post. I'd have thought this would be flooded with the usual inane and immature cat-calling by now.

Sorry 1.26pm, is it too late to check in?

Maybe because most people think the right agencies and people won. Now if some of those finalists had got through there might have been 100 posts already...!!!

Just guessing, but I'd say 1.26pm is from one of the wanna-be finalists who didn't win. Kinda comes across as bitter and wishing for an op for Schadenfreude. Three guesses...

9.17am - no, actually, just an interested observer indirectly involved with the industry who thinks a good few of you are arrogant, overpaid, whingeing pillocks. Hark at me, how's THAT for innane and immatue cat-calling.

For what it's worth, think Crawford should have scooped CEO

Overpaid? You must really be an observer coz no one gets paid shit these days. So fuck off an' let us have our whingey bitterness, it's not like we get paid near what we're worth.

For what it's worth 3.51, you know jack shit. Livingstone is one of the most underecognised leaders in the industry, but he's been doing the business for years. Crawford has done a good job but definitely didn't deserve to win over the chosen CEO of the Year. As for the other two, just making up numbers. Don't even make it into Livingstone's shadow they're that far off.
