Over at the Failed Critics website that I run, we hold an annual event where we invite all of our listeners and readers to vote in our end of year awards.
We encourage everyone to nominate a number of films in various categories, with the results revealed on a special podcast-bash in late December. In previous years, we’ve seen films that undeservedly miss out on major awards at the Oscars, such as Cloud Atlas, Nightcrawler and Skyfall, pick up what small accolades we can award them with instead.
Although, we apparently have quite an eclectic mix of subscribers. Last year alone, we saw the highest number of nominations ever, including everything from Skeleton Twins and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, to Zombeavers and The Babadook. Not all of them could make the final top 10, but I love flicking through all the suggestions. Often I find movies I hadn’t even heard of and add them to my ever-increasing watch list.
This year, we’re asking for more people to get involved. If you’ve ever read anything on FailedCritics.com, or listened to any of our podcasts, or even if you’ve interacted with one of our team on Twitter or Facebook, please take a moment to visit our site and vote in the awards. Thanks!
