Merry Christmas from the Awards Circuit Family!


Home-Alone-2-Biggest-Christmas-treeIt’s been a fabulous year here at  I hope it was one for you too.  I want to take this opportunity to wish all our readers, staff, and colleagues a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

You need to share with us what you’re watching on this long weekend?  Selma? Into the Woods? American Sniper? Big Eyes? The Interview? or something else that’s streaming like Ida? The Immigrant? Blue Ruin?  How about a classic like A Christmas Story? It’s a Wonderful Life? Die Hard? Home Alone?

No matter what it is, share it.

Me?  I’m watching A Christmas Story at least twice and then trying to catch up on a film or two like Get on Up or The Humbling or Leviathan.   I might even take in Inherent Vice a second time (to see if I’m as stupid as think I was in October). Already began writing up my “Best of the Year” series, which begins later next week with Specialty Awards, Dream Ballot, and then Top Ten of 2014.

Make sure you vote in our Academy Idol Season 8 competition, and gear up for ACCA (Awards Circuit Community Awards) 2014 which opens for voting on January 12.
