Congrats to all the winners!

I think it's especially cool that Mike Pisciotta won. Has a regular magic bartender from the Castle ever won an award from the Academy before?

No, this was Mike's first of what I am certain will eventually be the two he will win for Close-Up.

Cool. His DVD is really great--full of practical things--one of which went right into my active repertoire.

After winning two Close-Up Magician of the Year Awards (in different years), winners can no longer compete in that category.
