For those unfamiliar with KupoCon, it is a convention ran by fans of the Final Fantasy series, with events primarily held in the UK and Canada, with a few events held previously in the US. Due to 2020 being what it is, KupoCon has decided to go the digital route with online events, one of them being The Crystals award ceremony. Categories include Best character, Best Voice Actor, Best Game in the franchise, and of previous KupoCon events for those that have actually attended previous conventions.
