Even I can't deny Hanyu deserves this one.
Honors the Single Skater or Pair or Ice Dance Couple who best managed to increase the level of popularity of Figure Skating related to the fan base involvement, media attention and sponsors appreciation
I like my men the way I like my coffee...
(sorry this is the stupidest joke ever, I've been napping all day and just popped in to see who won)
I think this works pretty well as an online event. It would have been annoying in the Worlds gala, unnecessary when we should just have been celebrating the World performances. It’s been entertaining enough while there are so little other skating related things to watch. Well done Tanith and Charlie too although she clearly seems a lot more comfortable than him he’s done ok!
Generally all the winners are okay, for whatever this dinky thing was worth. I don’t mind if they keep having them though, as long as one can attend FOR FREE and the Gala isn’t interrupted. That borderline scam that the ISU and Skate Canada tried to pull was not okay.
given the criteria about fans, it was pretty much a given that he'd win that particular award. The only really interesting thing was the look on Lori Nichol's face when Shae-Lynn won the choreographer award.I assumed Hanyu had won after I was scrolling my socials and didn't see any threats or conspiracy theories.

Or perhaps this is meant as a retirement gift! Really, why was Kurt Browning given the Lifetime Achievement Award? Did he win two OGMs? Did he ever get a Rain of Poohs™?Of course, but the Fanyus have spun an elaborate conspiracy about how the ISU is trying to push him to retire and how they would give Chen this award to tell him to go away. Now they are saying they managed to bully the ISU into giving Hanyu the award but that the ISU has given Hanyu the award as a ruse to make it look like they don't hate him, but they won't let him win, you see.
