" I just feel like you guys were mad you got that genre (star crossed lovers) and decided to throw a tantrum and do the stupidest thing you could"

- Alexander Jones, Christchurch City Manager

Best Producer has always been one I've felt was missing. I guess it's a hard thing to judge based on a final product. Maybe teams could nominate their producer by detailing a true story or something amazing their producer did in the online wrap up form.

Biggest disaster during filming. Self nomination- needs to be witnessed and confirmed by non-team members.

Same can be said for editing but we still give out that award ;)

Oh man these are great ideas. I like the idea of taking inspiration more from Teen Choice Awards than the Oscars, when it comes to awards.

Good list.
Even if these are simply presented with a certificate, that would be cool.
To save time at the awards, they could be read out in a list and given out collectively.

Is "Best Reviewer" an award this year? I'd love to try give Mista Teas a run for his money ;)

One idea that seems obvious but hasn't been done before would be "Best Use of Genre". Not an award for each of the genres, but one for the film which interpreted their genre in the most interesting way. A lot of teams put thought into how to do their genre different from anyone else and it would be cool to recognise this.

Yeah I think a lot of people forget that this is one of the compulsory elements and all the others have corresponding awards. Might be harder to judge whether you the best use is subverting cleverly or playing it straight, but I think it's probably more of a "you'll know it when you see it" kind of thing.

Perhaps "Most Original Use of Genre" would be more apt.

double the awards and scrap the nominations for the lesser categories, so winners are just announced, without the need to tease every single smaller prize with clips from films. just announce the winner of a category and play a clip while the team member collects the award.
