The 5th Annual TNMC Awards

February 21st, 2007 Comments Off on The 5th Annual TNMC Awards

Every year, a bunch of friends and I run our own version of the Academy Awards because we’re movie dorks and the Academy always screws something up. TNMC stands for Tuesday Night Movie Club. Years ago we would go see a movie every Tuesday night at a cheap theater. That tradition is gone, but the name lives on.

Here’s the organizer’s (my friend Brian) summary and then the list of winners after the break.

Nice work guys. Really. The Departed barely squeaked out a win, taking home picture and director and tied for the most awards with SIX. Children of Men also took home six categories and Pan’s Labyrinth landed five big awards. The other big winners on the day were Brick and Little Miss Sunshine with three awards a piece. The big shut out was Iwo Jima, which had ten nominations but no wins. Thanks for playing and I hope you had fun…once again, I think we did a better job than the Academy will on Sunday and that’s pretty cool…
