The Academy Awards be damned. Grammy-shmammy. It's time to unveil the winners of the 2001 Feste Award! The Feste Award honors the greatest contributors in the Fool Community. In order to be eligible for consideration, a person had to be nominated by a fellow member of the Fool Community and embrace the Fool's mission of Learning Together. With more than 60 nominees for this one award, we whittled the list down to 10 finalists and put the vote to the community. It was an incredibly close race and over the coming days, we'll unveil the winners.

If you're not familiar with the Fool Community and our discussion boards, we encourage you to learn more about these wonderful people and our community. From across the world, the Fool Community is home to some of the brightest and most talented people in the world. Each day they share their experiences, their ideas, and their sense of humor. Join them.

Today, we kick things off with our fourth runner-up, GoofyHoofy. Check back soon for the rest of the winners!
