They’re back! The Movie Metropolis Alternative Oscars have returned for a second edition after their phenomenal success last year.

For the uninitiated reading this, the MMAO were set up out of my distinct lack of faith in the Academy Awards. For years, the ceremony has forgotten about the films that the majority of the cinema-going public enjoy watching. Continue reading
