Yes it is that time of the year when Good films are given Awards. The awards season has passed but who cares. It is time for the awards that matter to be handed out. So Let’s see who has won this year.
The Winner is: Chris Hemsworth for playing Thor in Thor.
Best Supporting Actor – Nominations are: Idris Elba for playing Heimdall in Thor, Anthony Hopkins for playing Odin in Thor, Stephen Fry for playing Mycroft in SH:AGOS (simple form) and Scott Glenn for playing the wise man in Sucker Punch.
The Winner is: Idris Elba for his fantastic performance as Heimdall in Thor.
Best Actress – The Nominations are: Natalie Portman as Jane Foster in Thor, Elle Fanning as Alice Dainard in Super 8, Noomi Rapace as Madame Simza Heron in SH:AGOS and Michelle Rodriguez as Elena Santos in Battle Los Angeles.
The Winner is: Elle Fanning for her performance as Alice Dainard in Super 8.
The Winner is: Kat Dennings as the teenage like Darcy Lewis in Thor.
Most Disappointing film of the year – The Winner is: Sucker Punch. It looked good but the film was all over the place, it was harder to understand than Inception. It has some nice bits and good characters but it’s not as good as it could have been.
Best Improvement of the year – The Winner is: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Seeing as Part 1 is the Worst Film in the history of cinema part 2 was a good improvement and a nice end to the series, I am just so glad it is all over (if there was a ninth one I probably would have gone insane).
Trailer of the Year – the Nominations are: Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Thor, Battle Los Angeles, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Super 8.
The Winner is: Super 8 for both the original trailer and its main trailer (preferably the original one).
Best Special Effects – The Nominations are: Super 8, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Battle Los Angeles, Thor and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
The Winner is: Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Super 8 (Joint Winner), The battle scenes and the robots in Transformers were amazing but Super 8’s camera work, lighting and effects as a whole cannot be ignored so that is why they hold the title together.
One to Watch in 2012: at his point it is unlikely that the Legendary Pictures Godzilla film will be getting released this year and there is still no news on The Host Sequel, they would be the ones to watch but for now they are not. This award goes to a film I did not see coming and have already seen. I am looking forward to its home media release more than seeing any other film at the cinema this year. It is quite possibly my Favourite Non-Godzilla film (I will find out when it gets released on DVD). It is the Incredibly Fantastic film known as The Hunger Games.
Best Original Idea – The Nominations are: Super 8 and Battle Los Angeles
Best Character – The Winner is: Heimdall in Thor. An absolute beast of a man, an incredibly intimidating and cool character.
Best Cameo – The Winner is: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men First Class telling Magneto and Xavier exactly what he thinks (WARNING: Contains Strong Language), it would be good to see him in any future films they do.
The Winner is: I was unsure if making a Super Hero film would work for someone like Kenneth Branagh but he has done an amazing job, he picked some of the finest actors who took on the roles just because he was Directing it. It was an incredible film and he has done an incredible job.
