2018 Bobby James Awards | The Nominees are…

The film section of the Bobby James Awards is one of my favorite. I’ve loved movies my entire life. In fact, I always thought I should be in the movies (for a more detailed reasoning, please see Jurassic Park and know that childhood Bobby would have been an equal, or better, “Tim Murphy”). Okay, maybe Chief Bogo (Idris Elba) was right, me replacing Joseph Mazzello in Jurassic Park is nothing more than an “insipid little day dream.” It may be time to “let it go.” Forgive me, I’ve digressed. The nominees are…
