"But the runaway winner is Forest Fringe, the free venue that has reinvented the Edinburgh experience for audiences and artists alike. Half of Edinburgh didn't want to be anywhere else."

hell yeah!

and also

"The Going Beyond the Call of Duty award

To be shared between the following: Andrew Scott, for the bleakest, bravest performance of the fringe in Sea Wall. Dancing Brick and Lucy Foster, for making us laugh and trying to save the planet. Kim Noble, for freaking comedy audiences out with his multimedia suicide note Kim Noble Will Die. Inspector Sands, for turning anxiety into an art-form in If That's All There Is. Circa, for making circus so beautiful. Hans Teeuwen, for surprising even those of us who expected to be surprised. Bette Bourne, for being himself in A Life in Three Acts. Action Hero, for cutting myth down to size in A Western. The countless standups who felt obliged to apologise to the Guardian every time they cracked a suspect gag (bless!). And Peggy Shaw excavating herself in Must. It's been an exceptionally brilliant year."
