The Best GIFs of 2014 Announced

Everyone loves a Gif, and there's no messing about with this set of complete classics.

This eclectic mix are the winners of the Gifys - the distinguished online awards for the best Gifs of the year in ten different categories, as determined by public submissions, voting and a panel of Gif experts.

Now in their second year, they've even gained the sponsorship of Giphy.com and CP+B Los Angeles - we thank them for their heroic contribution to internet culture.

Without further ado, here are the winners in each category, with the highly sought-after 'Gif of the year' in the final spot. You are all winners in our eyes *wipes tears*.
