The end is near! – We’re getting closer and closer to the end of 2016, and I almost don’t believe we’re already in Thanksgiving week. That also means that you might be looking for my best of the year lists for films and television shows.
Of course, I’ve also got my little awards presentation thing again this year. So, let me tell you how I’m going to be doing it this year, and how that way differs from last year’s schedule.
Last year, I released the list of nominees for the IJR Awards on December 14th, and the awards presentation itself was posted on December 21st. Originally, I had planned for the list of nominees and the 2016 IJR Awards presentation to be posted around the same time this year.
However, I’ve grown tired of having a lot of ineligible films. So far, the IJR Awards have only considered films from the year it’s recognizing, which were also released in Denmark in that same year, and not traditional Oscar season films that are normally released in January of the next year.
Last year, I, originally, did the same thing for my ‘Top Ten Films of the Year-list.’ But I’ve recently updated the 2015 list, and decided to reserve the right to update any and all end of the year lists, when I finally get to watch every major motion picture.
This year, however, I won’t be releasing my ‘Top Ten Films of 2016-list’ in 2016. I’ll wait until either late January or February 2017 to release that list. And again, there will be one or two major films that aren’t released in Denmark until March or April, so if I deem any of the 2016 films released in that period worthy of being put on the list, then the list will be updated.
Unlike the Top Ten Films of 2016-list, the Top Ten TV-Shows of 2016-list will be released already at the end of 2016. Of course, I reserve the right to update that list later, but I plan to release the aforementioned TV-list on New Year’s Eve.
And the 2016 IJR Awards? Well, I’m not quite sure yet. I think I may have to release it around the same time that I’m releasing my Top Ten Films of 2016 list. I’ll be updating the ‘upcoming’ section of the sidebar, when I’ve got final dates for the films list and awards presentation.
