The Underdog Awards: What If?



The Underdog Awards: What If?

 

 

Okay so I know I said the Underdog Awards 2014 were over, but I had this great idea that I just couldn't let go. 

The idea was for me to go back to 2000 up till 2011 and see who would have won the Underdog Awards in each of those years according to me, I haven't seen any new films recently from those years especially from the early 2000's so my list might not comply with a lot of people. 

So the idea is to see who would have won the major awards for film, director, acting and writing. One rule I've negated is no comic book movies, so now any cbm is applicable and yes that means The Dark Knight as well. I'm only going to list the winners for the respective awards, if you want to know why they were selected then just go watch the movies and respective performances cause I'm too lazy to type much. No nominations.

I might just end up doing, one or two of these Underdog Awards What If extended if anybody really wants to see them (type in the comments) or if I have time next year during the road to the Underdog Awards 2015. 

So from 2000 to 2011, here's what the Underdog Awards would have brought...

Thanks for indulging me once again. Remember, if you want to know why I awarded these particualr films or performances the award, just watch the films. After all it's cause not many people watched it to appreciate it, that they're on my list. 

If you want more details for a specific year, then comment below and I will make an extended post on that. Just fair warning though, for the earlier years I might have an inconsistent number of nominations.


'Nuff Said
