Awards Circuit believes in giving its readers a chance to weigh in on things that were going on before the internet, in its current state, existed. ACCA gives you the opportunity. We continue our look back in time to the year 1997 where Titanic pulled in a record eleven Oscars including Best Picture. Do you still feel the same way about James Cameron’s epic? Do you feel something like L.A. Confidential or Good Will Hunting was more deserving? Or do you want to champion the unsung hero like Afterglow, The Ice Storm, or The Fifth Element in the top categories? Now’s your chance. We have also included a much asked for Animated Feature category despite it not being in the Oscar’s existence. Due to a low number of eligible entries, we will only announce 3 nominees.
Down below you can vote on each of the 18 categories. You will have six choices per category plus a “write-in” for any film or performance that isn’t listed. You will only be able to vote once so make sure you have your choices well thought-out before you click submit.
Please take note that in Original Screenplay and Adapted Screenplay, the same films are listed but you are voting for the “original films” in Original Screenplay and “adapted” in Adapted Screenplay.
