It’s Oscar season again. Time to brush off the tux and order up a limo so Hollywood can throw itself a bash and pat itself on the back. Still, there was some great work up on the big screen this year…
Even with all the fluff, meaningless “thank you” speeches and endless discussion of dodgy couture some really good films made it into movie houses this year. Usually, a nebulous body solemnly referred to as “The Academy” gets to pick the best of the lot but News24-680.com is holding its own Oscar nominations this year – a working person’s version of the lavish yearly spectacle – and is opening it up to the readers.
We’ll limit our nominations to those for Best Film, Best Actor (no distinction between sexes, best actor… period), best director and best musical score. How’s that? Easy peasy. Cast your vote and we’ll count ’em up and see who comes out on top in the end. If you want to throw in a category for supporting actor, fine, but we thought just the best actor… period.
What drew you to the local cinema this year? Gravity? American Hustle? Dallas Buyer’s Club? Lone Survivor? Nebraska? And who came through for you on the silver screen? Bateman? McConaughey? Bullock? Lawrence? Dern?
Post your nominations in the comment window and we’ll see you at the after party.
