Hello there and welcome to the opening round of Buzzjack's movie awards 2015. Below are some categories where you are able to nominate up to 5 things in each category (10 for best film), these will then be totalled up and sent through to the final round where you vote for your absolute favourites. Any film released in the UK from January 1st 2015 to January 29th 2015 (I've made a pretty definitive list below to help you out but feel free to add your own if they released in the UK between those dates) excluding some of last year's awards contenders (I have also included a list of ineligible films at the bottom). The end of this round will be at the beginning of February, exact date depending on number of responses. Please PM your nominations to me, thank you!

On lead actress/supporting actress split (as seem to be a few this year), I'd personally put Vikander in lead for The Danish Girl and Mara for Carol but you decide what category you think they belong in the end based on their opinion.

Looking forward to voting in this, will probably leave it couple of weeks though so I can try and catch Revenant/Room/Spotlight/Creed/Maybe H8Ful Eight
Also if there is a film you want to nominate that isn't on either of the above list, please post in this thread and ask us as we may have missed it out accidentally! (For instance just realised there was no Testament Of Youth so added that smile.gif )

Also please use this thread to make cases and remind others of films, particular performances you want nominated and try and convince people to see their film or remind them of their performance. A bit like a FOY (for your consideration) thing! Also feel free to use like pics and that to make it stand out more!

A couple of my FOY (will do more later!):
BROOKLYN
Best Picture
Best Actress: Saoirse Ronan
Best Supporting Actor: Emery Cohen
Best Supporting Actress: Julie Walters
Best Script
Best Drama Movie

ALICIA VIKANDER (because she's been superb this year)
Best Actress: The Danish Girl
Best Actress: Testament Of Youth
Best Supporting Actress: Ex_Machina

HOME
Best Picture
Best Animated Picture
Best Vocal Performance- Rihanna

Hope you get the point heart.gif

Ooh I like that idea Uv!

Don't forgot how good Chappie was as a character guys! :') I really liked Yolandi in it a lot too but seems nobody else did :/

A bit gutted Birdman is ineligible though because just watched it today and Edward Norton is insanely talented, bit gutted he just sort of disappeared for the last act sad.gif

How long do we have for this? I'm waiting to see 'Carol', 'Joy', 'Revenant', 'Danish Girl' and 'Hateful 8' at least before nominating in this! ohmy.gif

Looking forward to this a lot though.

Excellent.

Also, I meant 'Room' instead of 'Carol', but if I find time to watch the latter before, then bonus!

EDIT: Oh and 'Kingsman' for best scene in a movie for the massive Church scene!

Best Song was actually meant to be on there but it looks like the category just didn't get copied and pasted accidentally! The song category I'm pretty sure was on the list of categories we we're including smile.gif Anyway added that to the first post!

I did think about Best Villian but the problem with that is that it could cause spoilers in case it is a surprise villian so don't think it is the best idea!

Yeah, song was supposed to be on there but I messed up when finally compiling the list!

You can nominate films that aren't on that list, that was just to give people a good idea of eligible films that they are likely to have seen!

I had quite a bit of free time now so I have added all eligable movies to the opening post so please check again if you are struggling for movies to nominate heart.gif Mostly smaller and indie movies added, loads of horrors added and a couple of bigger films such as Straight Outta Compton and Legend smile.gif

Also feel free to use this thread to write the movies in the opening post you have seen to make it easier for your shortlist!

True, but I'm lazy! I didn't actually go to the pics that much last year. If you've a foreign film category then I'll nominate The Further Adventures of Belle and Sebastian!

My next For Your Consideration movie:
(will probably do a few eventually)


AMY
Best Picture
Best Scene In A Movie
Best Box Office Performance

Hoping Amy can get a nod here despite being a documentary movie!

Also would anyone be interested in a Best British Film category or not?

Finally ordered something! Will only change my nominations for when I see new movies!
Is it just me or are the Actor categories really weak this year? I had 8 contenders for Best Actor compared to the 27 for Best Actress! Also oops at Joel Egerton missing out on two nominations for best supporting actor in 6th and 7th in my votes kink.gif

Movies with 3 or more nominations
Brooklyn
Chappie
Ex_Machina
Home
Inside Out
Kingsman: The Secret Service
Joy
Mad Max: Fury Road
Mockingjay: Part 2
Spectre
Spy
Star Wars 7
Steve Jobs
Testament Of Youth
The Danish Girl
The Good Dinosaur
The Man From U.N.C.L.E

Notes
Two of the five films with the highest nomination tally missed out on a nomination for best picture despite the expanded field.
On the other hand, 3 movies that got nominated for best picture only received 1 other nomination from me so are no on the above list
It's a Brooklyn/Joy/Star Wars 7 love fest for me with these movies receiving a combined 32 nominations between them!
Melissa McCarthy was very very unlucky to miss out on a Best Actress nomination due to how tough the category was. Quite a lot only just missed out in a big battle for 5th spot (the top 4 were locked)

Deadline is 12 February in just under a month smile.gif Not expecting too many to vote now due to all of us wanting to catch more movies but please start getting them in early February at the latest!

I'm submitting mine on the 6th February after I've seen Spotlight! Aiming to see Spotlight, Creed, Revenant, Room, Big Short (all definites) and maybe The 5th Wave, Carol & Bridge Of Spies

Also please can we have some more posts for people campaigning for movies to increase hype heart.gif

Seeing Creed & The Big Short this coming weekend and Spotlight the one after hopefully then I'll be ready to submit!

Going to do a For Your Consideration for a movie which probably won't garner much attention (but everyone should see!!!)

Tangerine
Best Film
Best Female Lead Performance - Kitana Kiki Rodriguez
Best Female Supporting Performance - Mya Taylor
Best Male or Female Newcomer - Kitana Kiki Rodriguez & Mya Taylor
Best Director - Sean S. Baker

And if there was a Best Soundtrack/Score category I'd be campaigning for that too!
