Adam's Final Cut Awards Nominations Announcement


As you may know, the Oscar nominations come out today. While I will have my thoughts on them soon (since I will hopefully have seen many of them), I figured I'd do my own awards contest since I feel there were films overlooked by the Academy, and maybe even you, dear reader. While many of these categories will resemble a typical awards show roster (Best Picture, Actor, Director), I cannot and will not get into some technical awards due to lacks of expertise and enough attention to them while watching the field. But there will be some original categories that make it fun. Here will only be films that were eligible for this awards season, though some I missed as of this publication; therefore, they will not be featured here.
