6th Annual Chrisfilm Awards (2015)

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here, but for a day at least, I’m back. I still don’t think I’m ready to write about every movie I see as I see them, but I at least want to share my favorites of 2014 and continue the tradition of the Chrisfilm Awards.

Every year, to celebrate the Academy Awards, I come up with my personal list of nominations and winners. As per usual, my awards look a lot different than the Oscar nominations, but hopefully this will give my readers an idea of some other quality movies from 2014 that the Academy did not mention. I only saw 3 out of the 8 Oscar Best Picture nominees though, in case you are looking for a point of reference to how ‘in the loop’ I am. Hope you enjoy!

And so begins the 6th Annual Chrisfilm Awards.

  1. Some notes:
    1. For the first year since I’ve been doing these awards, the cinematography category was below average. Only The Better Angels would have been been nominated last year.
    2. The Best Actor category was extremely competitive this year. I can’t believe how many strong performances I had to leave out. It’s so strong, I have to leave a list of honorable mentions:
    a. Christoph Waltz, The Zero Theorem
    b. Jesse Eisenberg, The Double
    c. Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything
    d. Guy Pearce, The Rover
    e. Ben Affleck, Gone Girl

  2. Great list. Gotta say Ben Affleck has really come up in the world!
