3rd Annual Chrisfilm Awards (2012)

Every year, to celebrate the Academy Awards, I come up with my personal list of nominations and winners. I didn’t get around to seeing many of the nominations (nor did I want to in many cases), so these awards are going to look quite a bit different than the ones you watch on Sunday. Hope you enjoy!

  1. WHAT?!?! Malick has again been robbed of a Best Director award!!!

    • Malick is the best director alive, but he made a a slight flaw in being a little over-ambitious while Reichardt made some key decisions in her film that took what could have been a good film and make it a fantastic film

  2. Just a few notes:

    1. Again, the Best Cinematography award was tough. I could have easily picked out 10 that deserved nominations.
    2. Michelle Williams owns the Chrisfilm award. In 3 years, 4 nominations and 2 wins. I wonder what she’ll bring us next year.
    3. Both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress were very strong this year. The women were dominant in 2012.
