The Ghosties for 2017 was held during New Year's Eve, on December 31st, 2017. This was the third Ghostie awards conducted by Ghost, and is likely to be the last due to the end of Radio Graffiti in May 2018.

The voting was carried out throughout the month of December. People could nominate who they wanted to win a Ghostie via their Gab account.

Controversy and Awards

As usual, many trolls and fans were quick to accuse Ghost of rigging the contest, particularly over choices such as the Inner Circle winning chatroom of the year, Ajit Pai winning Troll of the Year, among other picks. And as before, Ghost was quick to dismiss these claims. Some controversy was also caused over the Best Transtesticle award, as neither of the recipients were transtesticles.

Despite Ghost stating he would send out a physical Ghostie to those who won an award or an honorable mention, Ghost never ended up sending any out, and it seems unlikely he ever will.

Rescinded awards

On Episode 570, Ghost would announce on the air that due to some chatroom drama with an IC member, Oflameo, his award for Best Black Guy would be rescinded. It is unknown if he will award it to another individual instead, though it is unlikely due to Ghost not mentioning it since this date.
