Most improved player of the year: Leonardo Bonucci
At a time when Bari sold two of the most outstanding Italian centre-backs around, it was widely discussed who was the better of the two: Leonardo Bonucci or Andrea Ranocchia.
Now, though, there can be no discussion. Bonucci has excelled under Antonio Conte and turned into a world class defender, bettering even Giorgio Chiellini over the past 12 months.
Tough in the challenge and able to influence the game on the ball with his tremendous drive and range of passing, Bonucci is now the complete package.
Defining moment of the year: Marco Borriello's late winner versus Cesena
It would be easy to say that the defining moment of the year was the ghost goal of Sulley Muntari, but there were plenty more games left for Milan to catch Juve or, rather, for Juve to slip up.
With five games to go and Milan sitting just three points behind, Juve knew that any dropped points would allow the Rossoneri to close to within one Juve slip-up of the scudetto.
With relegation-bound Cesena putting up a sterling effort to frustrate the Bianconeri for 80 minutes, it appeared as if the title race would be blown wide open with four games left.
Enter Marco Borriello, without a Juventus goal all season, to pop up with the winner and send Juve into delirium.
Young player of the year: Paul Pogba
A squad packed with mostly experienced players, there are not too many candidates for this award.
Luca Marrone deserves a mention for the way that he has transformed himself into a centre-back—despite centre-midfield being his preferred position—in order to contribute to the side when injuries hurt them.
But Paul Pogba has injected energy and dynamism into the midfield whenever he has been afforded the opportunity. Signing the Frenchman from Manchester United this summer already appears to be a major coup.
Pogba is similar to Arturo Vidal in the sense that he is a complete midfielder. Originally thought of as a holding midfielder due to his sheer athleticism, Pogba's range of passing and shooting, particularly from distance, have been a pleasant surprise.
Goal of the year: Fabio Quagliarella's third against Pescara
We've seen some gorgeous Andrea Pirlo free kicks, and that Alessandro Del Piero's blockbuster to open his account at the Juventus Stadium against Roma in the Coppa Italia was also pretty special. A worthy mention to Pogba's fine volley against Napoli too.
My Juventus goal of the year will go to Fabio Quagliarella's hat trick goal against Pescara. Back to goal, he redirects a corner with a perfectly executed bicycle kick that is past the goalkeeper in a flash.
Player of the year: Arturo Vidal
This is a tough one, as Juventus have been outstanding from front to back this year.
Gianluigi Buffon is as excellent as ever, while Leonardo Bonucci, as mentioned above, is fast becoming one of Europe's premier defenders.
Claudio Marchisio continues to be undervalued throughout Europe; his contribution to Juve's renaissance is absolutely vital. Andrea Pirlo, of course, is still playing at an exceptional level too.
But I duly believe that Arturo Vidal has been the difference-maker over the past year, both on the defensive end and in an attacking sense too.
The Chilean has proven to be an outstanding purchase from Bayer Leverkusen, and I would now consider him to be Europe's most complete midfield player. With "El Guerrero" on their side, Juve have a chance of winning any football match.
