After a spicy three-hour-odd livestream featuring everyone from actor Tom Holland to musician Eddie Vedder and even director Christopher Nolan, among numerous other celebrity personalities, The Game Awards 2020 has concluded. For those of us here in Singapore, it was an early morning show, kicking off at 7.30 am, but don't fret if you missed it - we'll be delivering the most interesting developments to you in a bit.

Speaking of which, if you're looking for the list of winners for each category, then you're in the right place. Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic zombie masterpiece The Last of Us Part II proved to be the king of 2020, not only taking the big, coveted Game of the Year crown, but it swept away the opposition in numerous other categories as well. Five of them, no less. Sure, the result isn't exactly surprising, but neither did we expect such a landslide victory for Naughty Dog. Nevertheless, credit should be given where it is due - we loved it in our review, and its excellence speaks for itself.

Anyway, here are the rest of the winners - how many of these did you predict?
