2012 BAM Award Nominations

Another year has come and gone so it’s time to announce the 2012 BAM award Nominations. These awards are based solely on my opinion and what I was able to watch during the past year.

To see what qualified you can check any of these three posts for film, actor and behind-the-scenes categories.

I recently announced shortlists, and barring a few last minute entries, these nominations will come from those films.

If you want more insight into the history and development of the awards I have re-posted most of my old lists starting with 1996.

Winners will be announced, complete with my rationale, on Friday, January 4th.

I will be posting this as a live blog through the course of the night as decisions are finalized.
