I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards 2015: Nominations Announced

It’s about time for the third annual I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards! Writing it like that makes it sound super silly and serious all at the same time – don’t worry, I realize that! This year there are a total of 18 awards or titles. Each title has a maximum number of five nominees, and a minimum of three.

Today, in this post, I’m revealing the entire list of nominees, before returning with the official IJR Awards 2015 presentation on Monday the 21st of December. I had considered presenting the titles on the 18th of December, but due to the fact that I want spoilers for The Force Awakens to stay at a minimum on this site, I will not give myself the possibility of speaking in spoiler-language until the Monday after its release.

Speaking of Star Wars, I’ll be seeing it on the 16th of December, and due to the franchise’s place in my heart I’ll reserve a spot in each relevant category for The Force Awakens. Continue reading “I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards 2015: Nominations Announced”

I.J.R. Awards 2015 – Current Frontrunners

For the uninitiated: In 2013 I launched a yearly ‘award’ post for the blog called I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards, this post names the current frontrunners (up to two titles for each award).

In a month we’ll be halfway through the year, therefore I’ve decided to look back and note my current frontrunners for each award, and reveal if there are any changes for this year’s I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards. Continue reading “I.J.R. Awards 2015 – Current Frontrunners”
