Cinema 2015 It’s almost Oscar time, celebrities everywhere are trembling in fear of the upcoming Ricky Gervais Golden Globe hosting stint, the theatres are filled with prestige fare… well, the few screens that aren’t monopolized by Star Wars, anyway. It’s officially time for the MyCinema Awards!

Our rules are that films need to reach wide release (or as wide as they will ever go) within the nomination period (Jan 1- Dec 31) to be eligible. That means that we might miss a few things that the Oscars catch because of sneaky festival-dependent release strategies. We’re okay with that, we just thought we’d give you a heads up.

The winners will be announced in March along with our Performer of the Year, Emerging Artist, Honorary Award Winner and Fan Favourite.

Our Editors and Staff Writers all get a say in who wins but we use your votes for tie breakers and to choose a Fan Favourite so be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section, on Facebook and Twitter.

All nominees are invited to participate in our annual Nominee Interview SeriesPlease email to sign up. 

Also be sure to check out our nominations for the MyTV Awards and MyTheatre Awards in Toronto, London, New York and Boston.
