POLL RESULTS: BEST FILM OF 2015 (4th Annual KT Reader’s Awards)

Star Wars Episode VII, Rey, Finn, BB-9, Poe Dameron, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, General Leia Organa, Stormtroopers, Planet Starkiller, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Maz Kanata

It was never even close.  The Killing Time Community Film of 2015 by a 40 point margin is Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens!!!  I agree and named it Best Picture when the Renaissance Awards went up yesterday (click here to review).  Mad Max: Fury road finished a distant second and The Revenant (which I suppose is the Community’s pick amongst those films actually in the running tomorrow) finished third.Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

What I thought was great was that every single one of the 15 nominated films got votes.  Even if Star Wars wasn’t your favorite film this year, there was a film(s) that will stick with you and I think the breadth of the voting once you got past the juggernaut in first showed that.  Tomorrow night is OSCAR NIGHT!  Tune in so you can understand what I’ll be screaming about on Monday.  It’ll be interesting to see if host Chris Rock addresses Spike Lee’s boycott.  I think the thing I’m most rooting for is for John Williams to win Best Score for Star Wars with his 50th Oscar nomination (FIFTY).  It may be the last chance for the maestro, and he legitamitely deserves it.  Our look back at 2015 has ended (though expect a mega lightning review bomb next week of the films I watched to catch up) and it’s time to begin 2016 in earnest.  See you at the movies!

Here are our legacy winners (all PG-13, huh):
2012: The Dark Knight Rises 
2013: Gravity
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy 
2015: Star Wars Episode VII
2016: ???????????????????

  1. The oscars are a celebration, not a serious contest. Back in 1998, Shakespeare in Love was recognized, Saving Private Ryan was recognized, and Life is Beautiful was recognized, and I was happy to see three movies that I loved getting the attention they deserved. Of course Saving Private Ryan is the only one of the three I have rewatched since, and any serious observer knows that it’s head and shoulders above the other two, but I think a lot of people who work in the film industry have their heads in the clouds (it’s why they’re so good at sharing their dreams) and I’m willing to indulge their misjudgments.
