All members in my Discord are rooting for me to host next year.
I am very interested mainly because I would make it better. There would be dank memes and broken dreams. Craps and giggles. Awards and Al. All wrapped up in a gift. The forum would LOOOOOOOOOOOVE it.

I already have big plans if I'm chosen to host, but I will be hosting with an animated caricature to protect my identity. One of the larger plans is having a Daicon IV Opening Animation spoof to start it all off, and I'm hoping to have a big animator do it, along with my caricature.

But the BIGGEST plan is I'll be starting a planning committee, but only once it's confirmed that I will be host.
This will consist of -
Elvis
A few moderators especially Alicia whom I hope will edit it
High-profile users
and the chosen animator.

I am not taking people right now because I'm unsure what's going to happen and if I'll be host. Hopefully this should be decided soon so I know for sure.
i can call you betty, and betty when you call me you can call me al

Hosting the WOWAY Awards is a HUGE responsibility, and each successive host has a lot to live up to. Usually, the host is the one writing, producing, filming, and editing their own stuff as well as reaching out to and keeping track of everyone else's presentations. I can't really see an animated WOWAY Awards like you're describing happening. The host would have to be themselves and put a LOT of time into creating the WOWAY Awards. I know I already have notes written out and ideas on how to do things differently next time in case I host, and I feel like since I have the experience I would be able to put on just as good of a show (hopefully better!) as last time, and I know how to time things out better and where I want to go with it now. There's so much going on with the WOWAY Awards behind the scenes that you don't see, and I hope people don't think it's just some fun little project that anyone could easily put together because it really is a lot of work, and I had a lot of help, but was still expected to do a lot of it myself and have it turn out amazing. It's a lot of pressure for someone to handle, and I feel that I would be a top candidate for host of the 2017 WOWAY Awards.

Speaking of which, it's almost July, so it's about time to start pre-production! :o

Ono not Alicia AGAINNNNNNNN
We're gonna have to put up with an hour of AWARDS and STRIPPED ACTION FIGURE LICKING

Also, everybody else's portions WOULD BE live action. I'm not really aiming for an all-animated super show... that would be pure laziness on my part :? But yeah, speaking of that my location (Scotland) is VERY inappropriate and my dear god, I don't even have the budget nor am I old enough to travel about to film, but if I did, it would be on my own iPad (yeah yeah I know low budget girl)

So here, it becomes debatable <_<

Having hosted the show once before, I strongly recommend that the hosting responsibilities go to someone who has been on the forum for a few years and has the technical know-how to pull it off. I can't think of a candidate better than Alicia, personally.

Heds - I haven't seen any video or animated projects from you before. Care to share some examples, so we see what you would bring to the table? I think you would make an excellent presenter at least!

Hello, we gotta give our own TMBJon some kinda lifetime achievement award for managing to land a day job where he get to be coworkers with Al himself every day for weeks at a time! I may be willing to present him such an award if it came down to that.
