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 […]

Now that 2015 is finally over, it’s time to celebrate the year that was and the art that was made. This is home base for our entire 2015 Awards Season. Starting with the Nomination Announcements, then the Nominee Interview Series and, finally, The Winners! Without further ado, This Year’s Nominees Are:  The 2015 MyCinema Award Nominees The […]

Here they are, the final winner announcements of our 2014 Awards Season! Make sure you check out the My TV Award Winners and the My Theatre Award Winners from Boston, New York and Toronto. IMPORTANT REMINDER: the My Cinema Awards are based on the films that hit wide (or their widest) release before December 31st. […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2014 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. People like to say that the romantic comedy is dead. Screenwriter Mark Hammer isn’t interested in a world where that’s true. In 2014 he set about proving those people wrong by writing one of the most delightful […]

This was a strange year at the movies, full of psychopaths and scientists, musicians and war heroes (I swear there was a week when I saw 3 WWII films in a row). The year was peppered with the bittersweet final films made by late legends but it also marked the arrival of several bold, new […]

It’s officially 2015. Instead of panicking because that means we’re closer to 2030 than 2000 and you’re just not ready for that, let’s celebrate all the great things that made last year’s pretty tough 365 days so much better. This is home base for our entire 2014 Awards Season. First there were the Nominees: The […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of All Ages, the moment you’ve been waiting for (for not all that long since last year’s awards season dragged on Forever) has finally arrived: It’s time we celebrated the year that was 2013! In January we announced all our nominees: The 2013 My Cinema Award Nominees The […]

After 95 interviews in the Nominee Interview Series and the announcements of the Boston, New York and Toronto My Theatre Award Winners, and the My TV Award Winners, it’s time for the 2013 My Cinema Award Winners. The Oscars snubbed a lot of our favourites again this year but we also somehow found ourselves rewarding […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2013 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The Dirties was an affecting phenomenon of visceral independent filmmaking. Matt Johnson was its driving force, earning him three My Cinema Award nominations- Best Director, Best Screenplay (with Evan Morgan & Josh Boles) and Best Picture. With a strong backbone […]

Another year, another Award Nominee Interview Series. We love this time of year because we get to celebrate the work of so many amazing artists AND we get to grill them about everything from their backstory to their process to behind-the-scenes gossip (okay, so we rarely ask that last one outright, but we sometimes get […]

2012 was one of those years where almost all of our favourite movies were small independent productions that, come awards season, got very little mainstream love. 2013 was not. 2013 was the sort of year where we had to choose between two standout Leonardo DiCaprio performances to put in our Best Actor category. The directors […]

It broke our hearts when we looked at the category breakdowns in this year’s My Cinema (and My TV, for that matter) Awards and realized that Mark Duplass wouldn’t win anything.He’d barely missed out on being nominated in the Best Actor in a Drama category for his superb improvised performance in Your Sister’s Sister and […]

Here we go, guys. It is Finally time for The Winners! Those patient few of you who’ve stuck with us since January’s announcement of the 2012 nominees, through our epic 50+ piece Nominee Interview Series– the wait is finally over. Through a combination of popular vote and staff picks, we’ve found a list of winners […]

Last year we introduced the My Theatre Emerging Artist Award to our season. This year we’ve extended it to become a part of the My TV and My Cinema Awards as well. Here’s where we honour someone who made our radar in a big way for the first time during the 2012 season (I know, […]

There’s always at least one magnificent piece of work that just doesn’t fit into our annual awards, either because it stands head and shoulders above the rest of the work being done or because it’s simply so very different, incomparable. That’s what our yearly Honorary Awards are for. There’s one for each branch presenting awards: […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. In honour of the Oscar Argo is about to win, we thought we’d celebrate the night by publishing our Exclusive Interview with one of its most intriguing stars. Scoot McNairy’s beautifully conflicted turn as trapped “houseguest” Joe Stafford […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The lovably scatterbrained Fran Kranz has quickly become the great Joss Whedon’s go-to guy for casual genius characters like Dollhouse‘s futuristic tech whiz Topher and The Cabin in the Woods‘ stoner philosopher Marty. He’s a Yale grad […]

Here it is, folks, the final set of nominees in our 2012 Awards Season. You’ve seen the My TV Award nominations, the My Theatre Award nominations and even our first-ever set of My Games Award nominations. And here, hours after The Golden Globes pushed back against Oscar folly by awarding Ben Affleck and Argo, are […]

A tradition that started on My Theatre is now being carried over to My Cinema as we announce our Performers of the Year for 2011 as part of the annual My Cinema Awards (the winners of which were announced earlier this week). Still to come is our yearly Honorary Award- given to one person or […]

I know, I know, these are unforgivably late. But our annual Award Nominee Interview Series ballooned to 50 people and took forever to roll out. There are still a few TV/Theatre interviews to come but, in the mean time, we can at least announce the winners of the second annual My Cinema Awards. (Read the […]

Our annual My Entertainment World Award Season began today with the My Theatre and My TV Award Nominees, and now it’s time for our 2nd annual My Cinema Awards. Then we’ll kick off our Nominee Interview Series and announce the Winners, Performers of the Year and recipients of our yearly Honorary Award. The following is […]

Introducing the annual My Cinema Honorary Award. This distinction, announced separately from the rest of the winners, is awarded each year to celebrate standout achievement in any given category. We have 2 winners this year, because we simply couldn’t choose. Winners aren’t nominated in the regular My Cinema Awards. Rather, they’re honored separately as the […]

For the first annual My Cinema Awards our writers got together to honour the best of the best in the 2010 film landscape. Out of the 4 or 5 nominees in each of our 12 categories, these are the ones who stood out the most to us this year. Some are multi-award winners or Oscar […]

One of the best films to come out of Canada last year (actually, just one of the best films period) was The Trotsky, a comedy about a teenage re-incarnation of the Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky, starring Jay Baruchel and Colm Feore. If you’ve seen the film (as all of you should have), you’ll remember the […]
