After a month of frenzied voting, the leader never changed, and the Killing TIme Community has officially selected Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as their Best Film of 2016. Of the 15 possible nominees, 12 received votes, showing the depth of quality movies from last year. This marks the second consecutive year that a Star Wars film has won the top community prize, giving Disney a perfect record since they took over the franchise (I wouldn’t count out The Last Jedi taking 2017).
Rogue One lead from start to finish, but it’s margin of victory is the smallest in the history of the poll thanks to so many other films having champions. Tying for second place were the Oscar favorite for Best Picture La La Land with Oscar snub Deadpool (also showing that we’re a community who enjoys both a little song and dance along side super hero carnage). Rounding out the top five were Captain America: Civil War and Disney’s The Jungle Book. I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote and participated. My awards will be published either late tonight or tomorrow before the awards ceremony, but this is the award from the readers so all hail Rogue One and let it be added to the annals of Killing Time Community Award Winners!!!
