We’ve reached the end of another financial year and that means… it’s time for the nominations for the annual Toomey Awards (or as they are otherwise known by some of my friends – The Golden Owls).
I started doing this back in 2000 as a way of honouring my favourite films and performances. I work on a financial year basis as it better aligns with a film’s year of production. Many Oscar contenders are released in Australia between December and February each year. Instead of having them split into two years for the purposes of my own awards, this brings them together.
Of course, you won’t find a set of awards more biased than this one. I’m the only person that gets to vote and it’s the truest form a monopoly.
Above all else, I hope it inspires you to see some of these films. If you don’t agree, I’m more than happy to engage in a debate!
