Thanks for all the Filmaholics who voted in this year’s annual Everything Film Awards – honoring the best in film for 2015.
We brought in a new category – Best Set Design, we merged a category – Best Supporting Actor/Actress, and we’ve removed categories from the previous year – Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Comedy Film.
This year there was a combined 90 votes cast over 15 categories.
‘The Walk’ walked away as the biggest winner with 4 wins out of its 7 nominations. You made ‘The Walk’ to win in a split vote in Best Cinematography, winner for Best Screenplay, tied win in Best Actor for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s performance, and winner for Best Director for Robert Zemeckis.
Critical darling ‘Sicario’ was an underdog this year, winning 3 categories out of its 7 nominations. While it didn’t win the big categories, it did win a lot of its technical categories including Best Editing, tie vote for Best Cinematography, and another tie vote in Best Score. A lot of ties this year!
Audience favourite ‘Creed’ won 2 categories out of its six nominations, wins include a tie vote for Best Score and another split vote for Best Supporting Actor/Actress for Sylvester Stallone’s performance.
While it’s the final chapter in ‘The Hunger Games’ series, it finished with a bang, winning all of its nominated two categories, but two big categories, winning Best Actress for Jennifer Lawrence, which is the third consecutive nomination for the character of Katniss Everdeen and the first win, and your choice as this year’s Best Film.
Other wins included:
- The live-action ‘Cinderella’ winning Best Set Design
- ‘Into the Woods’ winning Best Costume/Makeup
- ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ easily taking the win for Best Visual Effects
