Inaugural Bib’s Corner Film Awards *Winners*

img_4519

Back in January and February, I was incredibly excited about doing these awards. I made a list, trimmed it down, reached out to my film friends for input, and was poised to release the winners in early March.

Then the pandemic hit and everything was put on hold. I thought about releasing the awards at several different points but it didn’t feel right with so much uncertainty in the air.

We’ve now reached the end of July and with movie theaters opening soon and the NBA returning it feels as though we have a better understanding of the virus. While certain states are still struggling with containing it, we at least know what we should be doing to put ourselves in the best position to do so.

Before we get into it I want to send a sincere THANK YOU to the friends of the show who took time out of their lives to cast votes for these awards. Without them, my biases would have run rampant so they helped keep me in check.

Without further ado, it’s time that I present to you the winners of the 2020 Bib’s Corner Film Awards.

And that wraps it up for the 2019 awards! I have started making my lists early for 2020 and it is a running list so I’m bumping movies and actors out of my top 10 as I go.

I love the diversity of my nominees and my winners here. I love that I was able to recognize a few performances that were overlooked by Oscar voters like Lupita in Us and Jonathan Majors in The Last Black Man in San Francisco. I am glad I was able to recognize more films, by breaking them out into different categories, and I loved being able to recognize the young actors who are always overlooked for major awards.

I believe I will be keeping the categories the same for year two. My biggest goal for change is to add some voters to my panel for 2020. Preferably some ladies since currently all of my voters are men. I want to add more perspectives to the mix.

As always, if you stopped in and read this, thank you. I always appreciate comments and any other feedback you might have for me. Reply to the piece, leave me a voicemail on the podcast or reach out to me on twitter.
