As a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the International Press Academy, both of which host the Critic Choice Awards and Satellite Awards respectively, screeners and gift bundles come by the dozens beginning in October. I know before I ventured off on this journey in film criticism, I always wanted to see what people in the industry were receiving as they became available. This year, I attempt to do just that. The Awards Circuit’s FYC Tracker (For Your Consideration) has just gone live.
With the help of a brand new color scanner I purchased, I will be uploading pictures of the screeners received, “For Your Consideration” advertisements that will appear in publications, and any other things I or our readers stumble upon along the way. As marketing materials from the studios end up on my doorstep, I’ll attempt to share the information with you via the Screener table and/or image gallery of goodies received.
I have to give a shout out to Sasha Stone of Awards Daily who has done a version of this for years in her ‘FYC Gallery.’ Make sure you visit her gallery as well throughout the season!
Check out the first entry as Fox Searchlight sent out an awards screener for John Madden’s The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Some notable things, Judi Dench as well as Bill Nighy will both be campaigned as Lead Actress and Actor for this year’s season.
Comment and discuss!
