The Golden Gnome Awards are an annual major Oscar-like award competition held by Jagex, that occurs every RuneFest. It has multiple categories, including videos, livestreaming, art, and cosplay. As of 2015, there have been five Golden Gnome Awards held. One in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

In the first two events, Party Pete hosted the award ceremonies, and a selection of well known Jagex Moderators including Mark Gerhard and Paul Gower. In 2013, it was hosted by Mod Mark and Mod Paul M. In 2015, it was hosted by Mod Balance.
