As we did in 2014 and 2015, today I'm going to recap our annual awards and other meta articles from the end of 2016. We gave out 19 formal awards this past year, seven of them more or less new to the site and proposed by readers, all in addition to dozens of other recaps, roundups, listicles, predictions, bloopers, oddities, polls, provocations, and retrospectives. It was easily our biggest content dump to date, and I'm pretty proud of it. In fact, I'm already planning December 2017!
Following our deep-dive into our awards and the attached reader polls, I'll be recapping all of the end-year articles in one convenient place in case you missed something over the holidays. This sucker's gonna be long. Let's do this.
