Our Summer Awards: ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Wins Big

It’s hard to believe that the Summer is already over. It seems like only yesterday that I sat in a theater for ‘The Avengers’, and now I’m wrapping up the movies that I saw in August. Oscar season is just around the corner and I’m already geeking out for the great movies soon to come! But before we do that, I have some awards we wish to give out to the courageous summer films that both inspired us and made us shake our heads.

Each category will have 5 nominees and the winner will be highlighted in bold. Let us know what you think of our decisions, and remember, this is only 3 months of movies that we’re picking from (in a relatively week Summer for great movies), so don’t be upset if our winner is less than stellar.

    Given the brilliant performances by Q. Wallis and Dwight Henry, I would think the person that directed and cast and coached these two first-time actors ,should receive equal praise.
    I am glad to see that Mr Zeitlin and this fabulous film is on your nom list for best picture and director.
