Vote Now! 2019 Cinelinx Movie Awards Nominees

2020 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 2019 Cinelinx Movie Awards (“The Linxies”).

This will be our seventh year of handing out these special awards. 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. At the end of this article are links to our two-part ballot. Simply vote for whichever nominee you think deserves to win in each category. Make sure to vote in both ballots! 

Results of these reader polls plus our own picks will be announced on February 8th. That gives you 4 weeks to watch a lot of really great movies to help you decide who you want to win. Need some help deciding? Head over to our reviews to read our thoughts on these impressive films.
