Endy Nominations: 2012

Reviving a tradition I had to abandon last year after spending the second half of 2011 in a baby-induced movie-free zone, it’s time to nominate some movies for some end of the year awards.  I’ll list the nominees in each category here, and then on Saturday publish the winners, along with my predictions for the winners of that other set of awards. As always when assigning dates here at The End, movies are categorized based on their imdb date, which means that a number of films that would be Endy favorites (Damsels in Distress, Margaret, The Deep Blue Sea, etc) are not eligible for this year while several films that won’t open theatrically in the US until 2013 are eligilbe.
