Did I spot Uwe Boll scoring the silver prize here?

It's cool that Tom Six wins an award (and for a movie which totally passed me by except for the coverage on this site, go figure...) but it's also big news that the second prize goes to someone who was called "the worst director in the world" only a scant few years back...

Then again, Tom was pretty maligned too here in The Netherlands. Maybe the award is for "most stunning improvement"?
