The 6th Annual TNMC Awards

February 23rd, 2008 Comments Off on The 6th Annual TNMC Awards

My movie nerd friends and I just finished our own version of the Oscars again this year. (Here is last year’s results.)

Again, we start with Brian‘s commentary:

As suspected by most of us the minute we saw it, No Country For Old Men was clearly the film of 2007, winning a stunning seven awards this year, including Best Picture, Supporting Actor, Director, Screenplay, and Scene of the Year. Interestingly, the film was shut out of the technical awards, which saw us spread the wealth to Zodiac, The Assassination of Jesse James, and The Bourne Ultimatum, an undeniably accomplished threesome. After No Country, the next highest winner only took home three and that was Michael Clayton with its wins for Supporting Actress, First Feature, and a surprising win for Original Screenplay over Juno (something that many have been thinking lately could actually happen Sunday night too…not saying it will, but if you want a dark horse, it’s one to consider). Five of 2007’s best films – Jesse James, Bourne, Grindhouse, Zodiac, and Once – all took home a pair of TNMC Awards with seven other films winning only one. We hit several of the critically acclaimed films of the year, giving Atonement, Juno, There Will Be Blood, and Ratatouille one award a piece. I really like the way we spread it around this year. I hope you had fun. Maybe we can do it again next year or maybe I’ll fire up those long-rumored 1st Annual TNMC Television Awards – but we know Lost and 30 Rock would win everything.

Interesting trivia –
Biggest Slam Dunk – “Falling Slowly” (24 points out of 27 possible)
Other 20+ Winners – The Coen Brothers for directing and writing, Javier Bardem, The King of Kong, Clayton for debut, and Page for breakthrough
