2020 BOFFY AWARDS: CEREMONY AT 3PM EST TOMORROW

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

2020 has been one hell of a year, and 2021 doesn’t look like it’s going to be too different. A lot of us didn’t get the chance to venture out into the cinema as often as we’d liked (and that’d putting it mildly).

 

That being said, we firmly believe that the show must go on!

 

The 9th Annual BOFFY Ceremony will happen as planned!

All categories, except picture, will have the normal six nominees. Picture can have anywhere between 6 to 10. Try to fill out as many nominees as you can.

 

Eligibility:

·        Any film released on streaming (subscription based or VOD) or theatrically in 2020 is eligible. This includes…

           o   Films with a limited platform release in 2020 (e.g. Nomadland, One Night in Miami)

           o   Films on premium channels (e.g. Bad Education)

·        Filmed concerts and theatrical productions (e.g. Hamilton) are eligible in categories EXCEPT FOR acting and writing.

·        Small Axe will be eligible as five different movies. That is, you could vote for Lover’s Rock, Mangrove, etc. but not the series collectively.

 

Because of the relatively limited lineup of films, ties may be extremely likely. Thus, @The Panda and I have implemented a fail safe: In each category, you may select ONE of your nominees to get a "Super Vote." This will not affect general tabulation, but in the event of ties, the nominee with the most "super votes" will break that tie. Your ballot will be counted even if you do not include super votes, but if you're passionate about a fringe nominee, I highly recommend it. With that, don't wait your super vote on an obvious choice!

 

Deadlines:

 

Send your ballot to myself and @The Panda no later than Saturday, February 27th at 11:59am EST.

 

Nominees will be announced on February 28th

 

Awards will happen on SUNDAY, MARCH 14TH.

 

Also, I made this handy guide to keep track of where you can watch this year's eligible films!

Thanks @Eric Gardner that means a lot, I also appreciate the hard work you, @Wondy and the rest of the admin/mod team put in. 

 

As far as movies there is no sign that First Cow or Minari will be released here in NZ before the deadline which sucks as they were/are 2 films I was very much looking forward to seeing. 

 

I'm curious if you would count The Gentlemen as a 2020 or 2019 release? As it was previewed in 2019 but got a proper release in both the UK and US in January 2020. 

 

User FYC (I've got multiple of each, going to have to narrow them down)

 

MOST VALUBLE USER: @Eric Gardner @Wondy @Gavin Feng

 

FUNNIEST USER: @lorddemaxus @Porthos @WandaLegion 

 

BEST FORUM MOMENT: The coronavirus thread, where most people were well behaved (and if not dealt with quickly by the mods) and we were able to come together as a community and support one another.

I would count The Gentlemen because there's a few films that had festival releases in 2019 but still had US releases in 2020, and I'd count all of those films! So I don't know why it wouldn't count.

Wait, no Foreign Film category or Documentary category??? I've actually watched more of both this year than ever before; would be a bummer if they didn't have categories.

That said good year for thoses (like last year) to have a shot at real competitive award (i.e. best picture), but if you start breaking down best picture in sub category (best animated), may as well have those.

So how are we dividing the placements for One Night in Miami's cast? Are Ben-Adir and Odom leads and Goree/Hodge supporting? Are they all leads? All supporting? Just want that to be clarified.

You never did add these in the main post btw.

 

Also, what are the criterions for overlooked feature this time? There were more of those last year than non-overlooked ones.
