IJR Awards 2016: Nominations Announced, Part One of Two

I'm Jeffrey Rex Awards

Today I’m revealing the first half of the 2016 nominations for this blog’s IJR Awards (I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards, but you probably already guessed that). The two legend awards (Film Legend and TV Legend) aren’t getting any nominees, instead I’ll reveal the winners, or honorees, in the eventual IJR Awards 2016 post.

Now, the second half of the nominations will be revealed around February, in order for me to be able to watch some of the Oscarworthy films that won’t be released in Denmark until the beginning of 2017. So, today I’m revealing the nominees for the following categories:

  1. Best Performance by an Actor in a Superhero Film or TV Show
  2. Best Performance by an Actress in a Superhero Film or TV Show
  3. Superhero Film of the Year
  4. Best Guest Performance by an Actor in a TV Show
  5. Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Show
  6. Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Show
  7. Best Performance by a Cast in a TV Show
  8. Television Episode of the Year
  9. Television Show of the Year
  10. Unforgettable Television Quote of the Year
  11. Best Performance by a Voice Actor in a Gaming Experience
  12. Game of the Year
  13. Song of the Year

Without further ado, let’s get to it.
