Foreword by Adam Brannon. Can you believe we’re here again? Now into its fourth year, the Alternative Oscars has become one of my favourite times of the year, as we put the best films to the test for a shot at winning one of our coveted awards. I’ve always felt like blockbuster movies haven’t received as much recognition as they deserve.
After all, some of these films have been a labour of love for their directors and leading men and women. This year, however, we’re mixing things up a little with an Alternative Oscars of the Decade! Continue reading →
When the Alternative Oscars were set up three years ago, it was as a two-fingered salute to the Academy Awards. You see, I was fed up with the Oscars only honouring films that were technically brilliant, but weren’t overly popular with cinema-going audiences.
I never expected for my little awards to become successful, but it appears many of you reading this agreed with my stance towards the Academy. In its first year, I was pleased with just over 300 people taking part and last year I was ecstatic for just under 1,000 individuals to share their thoughts.
This year, with the help of a small advertising budget and an increased word of mouth, the Alternative Oscars received bang on 1,600 votes! To say I’m thrilled is an understatement. So, without further ado, let’s crown this year’s winners. Continue reading →

Foreword by Adam Brannon: The Movie Metropolis Alternative Oscars have become a staple of the site over the last three years, and I’m so pleased that so many of you have got behind it.
I’m never been shy in saying that the Academy Awards aren’t my bag. Awarding films that the general public don’t necessarily watch in any great numbers, they seem to be in their own little world. Yes, they award technical brilliance, but the majority of movies nominated aren’t massively financial darlings.
This year, the Alternative Oscars became even bigger. Last year, we had 350 votes cast which at the time I thought was absolutely incredible. This year, we were just shy of 1000. That means nearly 1000 people shared their views on the best movies of last year. Without further ado, let’s crown this year’s winners!
