1st Annual Bib’s Corner Movie Awards (shortlists)

Hello friends,

This year I have watched over 100 movies and there is a lot that I’d still like to say about them.

With awards season upon us I find myself already being disappointed by the nominees. Many great performances and movies are being overlooked (as usual) and rather than being frustrated I’ve decided to do my part in making sure they’re recognized.

What better way to do that than creating my own awards?

I’ve made up some new categories and ignored some of the mainstream categories because there are only a few things I care about when it comes to my movies. I’m starting with my shortlists so you can see all of the nominees I’m considering for each category. No more than 10 will be listed for each award and all listings are in alphabetical order.
