The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) revealed the 2011 Interactive Achievement Awards Winners. Blizzard Entertainment was nominated in several categories, and won two of them.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty won the Oustanding Achievement in Online Game Play Award and the Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year Award.
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm wasn’t lucky this year, but it was nominated in two categories. The fact an expansion was nominated, that’s a bonus.
