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.
Now, you may be sat there thinking “what the hell are The Odysseys?”, and you’d be well within your rights to ask. But, we thought we’d be nice and save you the trouble by putting together this little post to get you all up to speed.
2016 is drawing to a close, and that means just one thing (no, not Christmas). For all us film geeks, the most fun we can have in the festive season is to put together our end of year film lists of course! Here at JumpCut UK, we go one step further, with our annual awards show. Last year’s show was a roaring success (it definitely roared, and you can’t prove otherwise), so we’re back again this year to try and top that.
This year’s show is set to be bigger and better, with lots more of our favourite film friends getting involved. Even more exciting, is the fact that we have golden envelopes for all our presenters this year (stay calm everyone). But, perhaps even more exciting still, is the new name for our awards show – The Odysseys! See, it all makes sense now.
Whilst the official title for the show will remain The JumpCut UK Film Awards, we thought that was a bit of a mouthful, and so we came up with a more snappy little title that will make discussing and hashtagging about the event a lot easier. So no more excuses, get talking about The Odysseys – the awards show made by film fans, for film fans.
