We are eight days from the announcement of the 5th recipient of the KT Reader’s Award for FIlm of the Year.  Rogue One is still atop the poll, but it’s comfortable lead has turned into a five-film scrap as Deadpool had a big surge this week and moved into third place behind the Star Wars spinoff and La La Land.  The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War are tied behind them to round out the top five.  Hidden Figures became the 11th different film to receive a vote for Best Picture in this wildly deep year for films, leaving only four nominees without at least one vote.  This is going to come down to the wire.  Deadpool’s surge completely changed lead margins for Rogue One, and we’ll see if the leader from the beginning, can hold on for one more weak or if last-minute voting will see another film take the prize.  This is going to be the last update.  Saturday, February 25th will see the announcement of the Community’s pick, and next week will also bring the site’s annual Oscar therapy alternative: The Renaissance Film Awards.  If you haven’t yet, VOTE!  You can find the poll on the Killing Time homepage at https://justkillingti.me or by clicking here.  This is the reader’s choice: make your voices heard!

Poll Update: Best Film of 2016 Week 2

Well, halfway into KT’s 5th Annual Poll for Film of the Year and Rogue One’s comfortable early lead has turned into a four-way race for the top spot.  Rogue One is still in the lead, but only just, holding off La La Land by a few percentage points, and Captain America: Civil War and Disney’s The Jungle Book aren’t far behind.  In all, 10 of the 15 nominees have received Best Picture votes showing what kind of year 2016 was at the movies.  As more people see La La Land, will it be able to eclipse the Star Wars spin-off or will one of Disney’s OTHER huge films from last year come racing to the front of the pack?  If you haven’t yet, VOTE!  You can find the poll on the Killing Time homepage at https://justkillingti.me or by clicking here.  This is the reader’s choice: make your voices heard!
