Hello and welcome to the final voting of the Buzzjack Movies Awards, celebrating the best in cinema of the last year. This will be the end step in finally identifying Buzzjack's favourites of 2017!

The voting will be done by using the method that was the one used for BuzzOscars last year, where people vote for a top 2 and we look at the 2nd preference votes if there is a tie on 1st preference votes. So vote for your top 2 and order them, and you don't have to send your votes outside of your top 2! Hope that makes sense and please ask us if it doesn't smile.gif

I have had an idea which is that we have commentaries wrote for all the Best Picture nominees so we can show our passion for why we think they deserve to be there and to persuade others to watch these interesting and fascinating movies! Please post in this thread which Best Picture nominee you would like to write a commentary for and PM me the commentary but post in this thread what film you want to write for so no film gets oversubscribed. We are going to have 2 people writing for each movie and the next post will show what movies are taken and what movies are available! LOOK AT POST #2 FOR MORE

See last years winners and this years nomination tally! LOOK AT POST #3 FOR MORE

Please send your votes to me by Thursday 1st March 2018 so you have two weeks to vote. The results will be presented on either Saturday 3rd March 2018 or Sunday 4th March 2018 (whenever us three are more available) on a Buzzjack Oscar weekend!
