ANNOUNCEMENT: The 2015 Undies Are Coming!

from White God, nominated in Foreign Language
That's right, chickadees. Hold onto your britches because the 2015 Undies Awards are just around the corner.

Last year, burnt out and frustrated with how the Academy Awards and most major awards shows and critics seem to reward the same movies again year after year, we here at Kiss My Wonder Woman came up with a new tradition: the Undies Awards. An awards competition focused on only looking at films which, for whatever reason, were underappreciated by audiences, critics, or the awards shows. Starting with something like forty movies, we narrowed it down to twenty-five films in five categories. Then all of you got off your butts, picked a category, saw the movies and sent me your votes. It was awesome.

Those five winners then went head to head in the final round to determine what movie from 2014 qualified as the absolute best underappreciated film of the year. And now it's time to do it all again.

from Mistress America, Micro Budget
I mean, we probably would have done this again even if the Oscars had somehow magically managed to get their act together in the past year, but as the nominations have proven, the Undies are still as needed as ever. Not a single actor of color was nominated this year, and the best picture nominees left off some really obvious fan favorites. So we're here to fix all of that. Sure, the Undies isn't exactly as prestigious as the Oscars, and sure, technically the only award anyone wins is bragging rights, but we are democratic as hell and that's got to count for something.

As with last year, though, I need your help. I'm great, but if I am the only one watching these films and voting on them, then that's not a very democratic process. I need your help both to select the films we'll be viewing and to vote on them. Here's a quick run-down of how the process will work:

First! You send me a list of movies you think are the best underappreciated films of the year. The only qualifiers are that it had to come out in the US in 2015 and it cannot be a film nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Foreign Language, or Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards.

Second! I will put out a finalized list of the five films in the five categories. You email me with the name of the category you want to vote in. The categories are: Big Budget (budget of over $80 million), Mid-Range (budget of $10-80 million), Micro Budget (budget under $10 million), Foreign Language, and Animated. You pick one and tell me which one you've picked.

Third! You watch all five movies in your category.

Fourth! You email me and tell me which one you think is "the best" - whatever "the best" means to you.

Fifth! I compile all of these votes and then post the winner from each category.

Sixth! You watch all the five winners and email me whichever one of those you think is "the best".

Seventh! I compile the votes and tell you which movie is - according to your votes - the best underappreciated movie of 2015!

Good? Good.

The Undies are a lot of fun for me, and I hope they're a lot of fun for you guys too. I think it's important to take a minute and recognize those movies that might not be mainstream enough or white enough or comfortable enough for Hollywood to appreciate but which made us all sit up and listen this past year. The Undies exist for a reason, and that reason is to highlight movies that deserve more time in the sun.

So, with no further ado, here are the preliminary lists for the nominees at this year's Undies Awards:

Jupiter Ascending, Big Budget

  1. Wow, hard to believe it's already been a year since the first ones! I have two questions:
    1. If we pick a category with a movie that we saw in theaters, are we expected to rewatch it again for the process, or can we count that as watched?
    2. Are you going to put together a Tumblr promo for this? I would signal boost the heck out of that.

    1. Right? That last year just flew by.
      1. No, you don't have to see the movie again if you don't want to, provided that you can remember it well enough to judge it.
      2. Yes, I am totally going to Tumblr promote this! Probably tomorrow, if that helps. :DDD
