Just. Plain. WOW. What a night! The culmination of over 3,500 people nominating and voting meant the 2013 Molkies were the biggest and best in its short three year history.

With photos to come from the spectacular Heath Carney (highlights to appear on the MolksTVTalk Facebook page page), in the interim you can settle for the highlights from the tweetstream while they last.

In case you missed it there were some awards handed out last night. You know, at the 2013 Molkie awards. Drumroll please…
