The 2021 Bob Award Nominations!

18 Apr

2020 was not only an incredibly difficult year, it was a decidedly strange one. That strangeness was evident in the way movies were released (or in many cases not released). As a result, certain movies that would have had theatrical releases went straight to streaming services you were already paying for while others cost $30 to rent which is great for a family of 4 but made them inaccessible to people who live alone. This year’s Bob Award nominations felt different to put together than ever before and they look a little different as well. Another different aspect of this year’s nominations is that I have left out technical categories. It’s difficult to truly appreciate sound, visual effects, or cinematography without having the opportunity to see movies in a theater. With theaters re-opening my hope of course is that next year, the Bob Awards can return to normal, but for now the focus will be on acting, writing, directing, and of course, Best Picture. The winners will be announced in the next couple of weeks and as before, “The Fun Stuff” will highlight achievements that don’t fit into standard categories. With that, here are the Bob Award nominations for 2020.
