Origins RPG Submissions?

Have Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight Games, and Paizo submitted RPG entries for the Origins Awards? If not, why not?

Are they boycotting the Oscars of the gaming community in favor of the Ennies in order to promote their products at GenCon rather than at Origins?

What is the status of their submissions?

I ask, but don't know.

What I do know is that it would be a travesty if none of these companies submitted their excellent products from last year for consideration.

D&D Essentials was remarkable, Deathwatch is great, and Paizo's Advanced Player's Guide is inspiring.

What's going on here?

I think most of us have been frustrated with the way Origins has been run for a long time, no longer attend the show, and no longer consider the Origins Awards "the Oscars of gaming."

I know that for me, the end was when they held the awards outside the exhibit hall in the morning and had fat stormtroopers and someone's poor children hand out the awards to the polite claps of a crowd consisting of about 11 people.

That sounds awful. What year was that?
