Our annual Golden Kitty awards celebrate all the great products that makers have launched throughout the year. This year saw the most votes ever, with nearly 100,000 community votes in total.
On January 28 we also hosted our first-ever virtual Awards Ceremony. Host Casey Newton chatted with finalists and winners in all categories, entertaining us with his charming wit and in-depth product knowledge. Special guests Chris Messina, Tiffany Zhong, and Lolita Taub joined Ryan Hoover and Josh Buckley for a half-time panel, and hundreds of community members joined us for the celebrations. We were thrilled to share the award ceremony with so many of the winners and finalists. Thank you to everyone who attended and made it a truly special event.
So without further ado, here are this year's Golden Kitty award winners in each of the 21 product categories, as well as two data-driven (non-voting) awards for Community Member of the Year and Maker of the Year. We tallied the votes across each category discounting inauthentic voting behavior.
