Unfortunately, the popular votes were announced incorrectly at the meeting since the wrong algorithm was used.  The correct popular vote winners are superimposed over the meeting announcement in the video.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places and the honorable mentions were announced correctly in the meeting, but there was one extraneous photo that showed up when the basic winners were announced. The video contains a caption which points out the extraneous photo.
