ACCA 2019 – Final Voting Opens! Vote for the Winners of the Best in Film for 2019 Now!

Screen Shot 2020 01 16 at 12.11.25 PM

Welcome back to ACCA, the Awards Circuit Community Awards! This year, we had one of the most exciting years for ACCA in recent memory. We had a very different nomination pool than Oscar, with a foreign film leading the field. Despite having more categories than Oscar, only three films broke double digits nominations and many more received recognition. Without further ado, let’s get voting open.

Below you’ll find the survey to cast your vote. If you’d prefer, you can choose the link to open a new tab here.

Unlike Oscar, every single one of our races is done by preferential ballot. Move your top choice to the top slot to give it a 1st place finish, and then rank the films/performances in descending order. This will leave your least favorite nominee on the bottom of the list. Happy voting! In case you want to look over the overall nominations again, they’ll be posted below the voting link.

ACCA 2019 Voting closes Sunday, January 26 @ 11:00 am EST.
