Come on folks, put the tinsel down and mince pies back in the cupboard for just one second and take five minutes out of your busy schedules to vote in the return of the annual Failed Critics Awards.
We’ve made some slight changes to the format from last year, but still hope to receive even more votes than last year. Some categories have been rejigged – top 5 male and top 5 female performances is now simply top 10 performances, and the documentary category now allows you to include documentary series and not just those that received a theatrical release – whilst a couple of additions have made their way into the selection.
To vote, simply complete the form below listing as many (or as few) submissions for each of the following categories:
- Top 10 films of 2017*
- Best documentary
- Best British film
- Best film not in the English language
- Best soundtrack
- Best performance
- Best programme
- Best podcast
- Worst film
*Remember, that’s films that made their general release in the UK between 1 January until 31 December. Ergo, La La Land or Moonlight would count, despite being released in the US in 2016, whereas The Shape of Water and Molly’s Game would not as they are not due for release here until 2018. If you’re still unsure, bring the film up in IMDb and add /releaseinfo to the end of the url and look for ‘UK’.
Voting closes at midnight on Tuesday 26 December. Can’t say fairer than that; I’ve even left you time to watch and vote for Star Wars this year, should you so desire.
The winners will be revealed on our End of Year Awards podcast, released a few days later. A list will also be posted on our Failed Critics Awards page.
