IJR Awards 2017: TV and Misc. Nominations Announced

Today I’m revealing the first half of the 2017 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 2017-post.

The second half of the nominations will be revealed at the end of 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 2018. Without further ado, let’s get to it.
