The Academy Awards are coming on February 29th (www.oscar.com).
But how about academy awards at Brickfilms.com?
Possible categories for brick academy awards:
Best Actor (including actress)
Best Actor in a supporting role
Best Visual Effects
Best Animated Brickfilm (CGI movies)
Every brickfilmer would send his best brickfilm which he made during the last year.
It’s yor choice.February 8, 2004 at 4:31 pm #32211

Yeah i think it will be awesome to have a brickfilms oscars. It would be better than just an ordinary contest, cause it would have more categories. And the winner can get something like a Brickfilms.com official customized minifig for each category or something similar! We should have the brickfilms oscar annually!February 8, 2004 at 9:19 pm #32222
How about this category: Best Animation 😉 Or Best First Film?
I like the idea, but I don’t think that animators should have to submit their films. I think some kind of panel, or team could nominate the films. Didn’t we have something similar a year or two ago, The Plast Awards? That was before my time though, can anyone tell me about that?

That sounds like a great idea. But like Mot said, people shouldn’t have submit their films, there should be a special panel of judges from Brickfilms, CBM, and other large brickfilming comunities. The films can be nominated and every one can find out if their film was nominated a month before the actual awards. Then there can be like a special ceremony where everyone gathers to find out the winners, like a live screening of a movie displaying the results. It might get abit complecated at times, but it is do-able and an excellent way for many communities to colaborate with one another. There doesn’t even have to be prizes other than the glory and maybe a small trophy or something.

I think it’s not an altogether crumby idea, but honestly I’m not excited about being involved in its organization. I propose that an academy is organized somehow, one that is independent from the Brickfilms site. If there’s enough support for the academy and how it chooses to present some awards, I’ll be happy to post results and proceedings and such here at the site, and give my support to whatever decisions the academy makes.
