^Certain award groups do not simply award one winner. They recognize several different recipients, have runners-up, and have third place. Since this is a specific recognition, and is different from losing an award, runner-up mentions are considered wins in this award tally. Awards in certain categories do not have prior nominations, and only winners are announced by the jury. For simplification, and to avoid errors, each award in this list has been presumed to have had a prior nomination.
