These are the 2019 Endy Award Nominees, wherein I pretend to give out maneki-neko statues to the best movies, performances, etc of that year in film. Awards for many other years can be found in the Rankings & Awards Index. Eligibility is determined by imdb date and by whether or not I’ve seen the movie in question. The winners are highlighted in bold. And the Endy goes to. . .
