Best MMO, yes. It's a good game and the competition is pretty weak which offsets any negatives one might bring up. Panda shouldn't count since it's an xpac but due to the fact that the field IS so weak they'll probably include it. I'm not even sure they should have an MMORPG of the year category since so few worthy contenders come out in any given year. Most MMORPGs that get released aren't even worth knowing about and you'd only know they existed if you visited mmorpg.com or the like.
I like GW2 but it's also disappointing in some ways, particularly how ANet has shifted their vision and core philosophies scant months into release, and I surely don't think it's GOTY material or worthy of any other accolades.
GW2 has nice graphics as far as MMORPGs go, but I'm not sure it should even be listed for graphical categories since MMORPGs rarely even come close to touching tech potential compared to other games. However, with so many PC games having strong console games few games at all are doing anything with serious tech these days - most are wussified to console standards which are years out of date.
