OK, the Oscars have this category, but there list of nominees are limited and weak. And while I will admit it was an off year for documentaries, with none except for Man on Wire getting consistent headlines, there are some hidden gems out there. Here's our list.
TROUBLE THE WATER MAN ON WIRE AMERICAN TEEN I.O.U.S.A SUPER HIGH ME THE GARDEN RELIGULOUS STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE THE BETRAYAL BIGGER, STRONGER, FASTER AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL YOUNG @ HEART DEAR ZACHARY: A LETTER TO A SON ABOUT HIS FATHER ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD GONZO: THE LIFE AND WORK OF HUNTER S. THOMPSON
The Academy Awards just don’t cut it. Every year I watch, and every year I think they get something wrong. Not only that, why can’t there be more than five nominations, categories that fans care about (no offense “Best Achievement in Sound Editing), and who got second place?
Instead of sitting still — I created the Scorecard Movie Awards.
Categories range from the typical (Best Overall Cast, Best Actor, Best Film) to the atypical (Best Ending, Best Quote, Funniest).
If you have seen two movies or 200, it doesn’t matter. You only vote for the films you have seen.
There are 27 questions including the Hall of Fame.
Most categories, you will vote from 1-10, with 10 being the highest. You are scoring each individual nomination, not ranking them. So you can have multiple 7s, 8s, 10s, it doesn’t matter. And your favorite nomination doesn’t have to receive a 10.
Enjoy. The last day to vote is February 21. The day before the Oscars.
