With just hours to go before The Game Awards 2014, the show's physical award has been revealed. Released on Twitter by producer Geoff Keighley, the award depicts a winged, polygon humanoid.

The award itself was designed by WETA Workshop, the acclaimed special effects and props company based in New Zealand and most famous for its work on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.

The Game Awards 2014 kick off this evening at 6 PM Pacific / 9 PM Eastern. Not only will the event bring news of this year's Game of the Year, but we're also expecting announcements, musical performances, and more. You can watch the entire event right here on GameSpot.

What? Shouldn't it be Lara Croft with wings? Or Bayonetta with wings? Or Tifa with wings? Or whatever female character with big boobs with wings? :-p

"This trophy project the objectification of women in the gaming industry and their struggle to rise above it"....That's right, i just pulled that out of my ass, just like an art critic.

I really hope that isn't what they start saying.

It's not like it's a woman anyway.

It looks like a harpy.

Also some trophies are of men (golf I think), yet I don't think that critics would say they symbolize anything more than the sport.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> By definition a harpy is a female monster. There are no male harpies.

Otherwise there would be herpies everywhere........I'm going to leave now.

Yeah, but it's not a woman.

At most, it's a female monster.

Kinda cool. WETA makes a lot of really awesome stuff. Just glad it's not like a gold GameCube controller or Pac Man or some other stereotypical video game thing.

Oh my god does that woman really have no clothes ? This disgusting effigy is but a proof of gamers being a profoundly misogynistic cult of men devaluating women down to nothing but a materialistic trophy to fuel their power fantasies.

Reminds me of the EuropaCorp logo. Looks nice. Now there one more thing for game designers to compete over... not that I'm complaining mind you, we (the gamers) usually always reap the benefits of such competition =P

I wonder how long before some racing game will make this into a $.99 micro transaction as a hood ornament. Maybe even make your car go a little faster to entice people to buy it.

Meh, it looks like a generic trophy. I'd rather have that sweet Witcher 3 griffin personally.

Clearly it's sexualising women and promoting a r@pe culture in the gaming industry.

I will inform Anita immediately.
