BAM Award Winners: Most Overlooked Picture

This is the category that was designed to replace Most Underrated Picture. Essentially the move was in the offing for a few years. With my prior selections of both Toast and Kauwboy, I was starting to pick films that were more unheard of rather than underestimated. I became more interested in championing a smaller film that touting a film “wrongly” assessed or dismissed. Hence the change in name.
