As you may or may not be aware, The Bobby James Awards date back to 2002, when I decided to create a year-end list for the “Best of WWE.”
Since that time, I’ve expanded my year-end rankings to include movies, television, music and TNA Impact Wrestling. This post, however, is about the film categories and history – which are listed as having began in 2007. For several years though, I’ve been haunted (for lack of a better term) by the fact that some of the movies and performances I most admire and treasure haven’t had the opportunity to be honored or recognized – by me. Yet, in conversations related to all things movies, I find myself constantly referencing some of these titles, actors, characters, scores, etc. and find one (Brokeback Mountain) among my all-time favorite movies.
This post serves to provide notice that I’m dating the “Film” categories back to 2005. All “award” recipients will have an asterisk placed by their name (for 2005, 2006), and below the category, this note shall be referenced.
