Vote Now! The 2017 Cinelinx Movie Awards Nominees

2017 is now behind us, and to celebrate the achievements in film over the last 12 months, Cinelinx presents our nominees for our 2017 Movie Awards. We need the help of you fellow cinephiles, however, in order to decide the winners, so come inside to check out the nominees and vote on your picks!

2018 has arrived, and although there are a lot of exciting films on the horizon, it is important to reflect upon all the accomplishments in film from last year. For this reason, we are proud to present the categories and nominees for the 2017 Cinelinx Movie Awards (“The Linxies”). This will be our third year of handing  out these special awards and with your help we can make it something really fun and special. Listed below are the categories we’ve chosen to highlight all of the hard work that goes into movies. These categories are organized to reflect our review system. These are categories that we judge movies by because we think they are the most important. The nominees have been selected as the best representation of each category.

Now comes the fun part. It’s time to narrow down the list of nominees and select winners, and WE NEED YOUR HELP. Below (and at the bottom of this article) are links to a two-part survey. Simply follow this link to vote for whichever nominee you think deserves to win in each category. You are allowed to vote once per day until the winners are announced. Use #TheLinxies to tag your picks on social media!
