GOLDEN FLAMINGOS

Golden Flamingo Nominations 2018

NEW YORK – As the movie award season comes to a close, it’s time for the least prestigious awards. Based every year on a single voter’s subjective opinion, the “Golden Flamingos” highlight some of the best films and performances of the year. In it’s fourth year, the Flamingo nominees were announced at 2PM ET yesterday in Brooklyn, NY. Those in attendance shrugged, nodded, and generally responded with an “awesome.”  Fan favorite category “Best Animal” caused quite a buzz as both fan favorites Dante the Dog from “Coco” and Porg from “Star Wars” were nominated. Those in attendance were surprised by the new category introduced this year “Best Car.” Both Batmobile and Lego Batmobile face the stiff competition from “Cars 3” and “The Fate of the Furious.”

Before reading the list of nominees, it’s important to refresh on the voting process of these awards. Movie’s qualify for awards when they are viewed by the sole voter. The sole voter then breaks the films and performances into tiers for each category. The top tier is than taken as the nominees, and a winner is selected based purely on the sole voter’s opinion. All of this is thoroughly documented on the sole voter’s blog which averages 13 views per post. Without further ado, here are the nominees…
