Incredibly Strange Nomination.

Hey guys.

So my team Lights, Camera, Popcorn got nominated for the Incredibly Strange award (I totally didn't know about it in until after Hamilton's awards - Long story short, always read the forums before you assume you didn't get nominated.)

Anyway, out of curiosity, what sort of criteria had to be met to have won this award? I would love to know lol

-Cameron.

The 'criteria' for any of the awards is never really specifically laid out. But I would say the Incredibly Strange award is somewhat self-explanatory.

Generally, it's a film that may not be the best story, or best technically, but has something so bizarre or 'strange' about it, which makes it super captivating/funny/entertaining.

A best-of-the-worst, if you like.

But yes, don't think anyone will be able to give you an objective set of criteria on it, but I might be wrong!
