Forget The Oscars, because awards season ended for all the true film fans out there last night, with our annual film awards show – The Odysseys – finally hitting the web.
With help from our film twitter friends, the team at JumpCut UK, and a few famous faces, we’ve got 25 awards to hand out this year, and you can see the whole thing in the video above. The aim of The Odysseys is to offer a true representation of the films that real film buffs actually want to celebrate, and we do it all in a fun and inclusive way. So, if you have the time, please do watch the show, and we hope you enjoy.
If you want to be boring and you’d rather just get the results instantly, here are the winners at The Odysseys 2016.
Awards season is coming to an end, with just two major events left to go; one is a little, unknown ceremony, and the other, is The Odysseys. If you watched the JumpCut UK Film Awards show last year, you’ll know that The Odysseys (as the show is now known) will be the most fun film awards show out there. The Odysseys is all about true film fans from all over the world coming together to celebrate the films that really mattered to the most important people in the industry – the fans!
Well, you’re all surely dying with excitement to see the show and find out who wins our prestigious awards, and we can now confirm that the show will be ready for you all to view from 7pm on Sunday 19th February. So, clear your diary, because your Sunday evening entertainment is sorted. Look out for more details nearer the time, by keeping an eye on our Twitter.

Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to write my first ever article for JumpCut UK, and what better place to start, at this time of the year, than with a Beginners’ Guide to Awards Season.
Now, Hollywood runs to a pretty tight calendar. Spring usually offers up plenty of family-friendly films; Summer is all about the big-budget blockbusters; Autumn gives us the horrors and thrillers, whilst winter signals the start of awards season, when studios battle it out with their carefully selected productions, aiming to surprise and move audiences, with one eye firmly placed on adding some gold statues to their trophy cabinets. There are awards-skeptics who now regard all of this as simply over-the-top, politically and racially motived, Hollywood excess, whilst others can’t wait to delve into the treasures that studios have been saving for this time of year. Lastly, there are those who are new to the whole awards season buzz. If you fit into this category, then hopefully you’ll find this simple guide to be a helpful introduction to the glitz and glamour of awards season.
