BAM Housekeeping

I posted the 2021 BAM Award nominations recently and in my rush to do on time I bypassed the usual disclaimers and setup I include.

  1. Some of my nominees may seemed dated, but bear in mind the films I consider were ones I saw and some titles that have limited releases for Oscar considerations that I don’t get to slide into the year of their wide release. This has always been an affectation of my awards that is more pronounced during the pandemic as even the Academy has changed its eligibility period.
  2. For a list of eligible films you can check my now-public list on Letterboxd.
  3. The noncompetitive special categories (Entertainer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Special Jury Prizes, Neutron Star Award) though not included with the nominations, with recipients TBA will still be happening.
