This upcoming Sunday (January 12th), the Golden Globe Awards will air on television! Several deserving nominees will hope to achieve a win in this “pre-Oscar” award ceremony that celebrates and honors the performances and efforts in cinema over the past year. From Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) to Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom) to Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) to Spike Jonze (Her) and more, many will be curious to see who will win a Golden Globe this upcoming Sunday.
(See the official nominations [and list of winners after Sunday’s ceremony] HERE.)
Award season is always fun! But sometimes, certain films/directors/actors don’t get the recognition I (along with many other film lovers) feel they may deserve. (Oftentimes leaving me feeling as upset as Jennifer Lawrence was in American Hustle.)
This prestigous award, entitled The RED WEB AWARD, (or “The Webbies” as they’ve endearingly become known as to a few) allows the people…you…to award those truly deserving and pays homage to the dedication, cinematic success, inspiration, and amazement of the nominees. (In case you didn’t know, it’s called the “red web” because I’m a pretty big Spiderman fan.)
Each award ceremony to date has been a pretty big success (1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year -with over 700 votes!) and I always look forward to the fun. (Last year the uncanny Morgan Freeman and the beautiful Marion Cotillard were the hosts of the award-results ceremony! Check out their promo pic from the 3rd Annual RWAs:
Wait ’til you see who will host THIS year’s Award-Results Ceremony (Here on Wednesday, January 15th)! Don’t miss it. The surprise host and/or hosts will be revealed on that day, however, I can tell you that, unfortunately, it will not be Idris Elba as he is too busy trying to cancel the apocalypse, so please don’t let that influence your voting in any way, shape or form. 😉
Here’s How the RWAs Work:
A panel of 10 judges has been assembled. (Made up of 7 fantastic movie bloggers, 2 great friends/contributors of the site, and myself). Each judge submitted their nominees for the award categories that you will be voting on. Meet your panel of nominating judges that added their nominations for this year’s RED WEB AWARD categories:
- Tim’s Film Reviews
- Fernby Films
- Tajuana Greene Reviews
- Impassioned Cinema
All 10 of us nominated possible winners for 9 categories and we need your help to choose!
Below you will find 9 polls. Please do the following:
- Think carefully about the performances of the nominees per category.
- Vote for the TWO (2) nominees per poll that you think should win The RED WEB AWARD in its respective category.
- After voting, please..***pass this along to a friend via Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, WordPress, Blogspot, Text message, snail mail, pony express, passenger pigeon, etc. (There are “share” links at the bottom of this post).
- Leave a comment, if you wish, spreading your own propagandish reasons as to why you think a certain nominee should win.
