2013 Damned Arty Mural Awards

I know you've all been wondering who won this year's Nutbush Movie Night filmmaking awards, and I won't keep you in suspense any longer.

Nominees were chosen from all movies shown at movie night in 2012.  Marty and Adam picked the nominees (because we're the only ones who have seen every movie, and also because we're in charge so you just shut up), then voted on by everyone who attended movie night, even once, in the past year.  The Academy lets members vote for movies they haven't seen, so why not?

There are a bunch of ties, due to having only six voters. It's worth noting that in the categories of Best Actor and Best Actress, every nominee got one vote and the winners got two, indicating a very strong field.

Finally, we disqualified Citizen Kane and There Will Be Blood from competition on the grounds that either of them could win every award there is, and we wanted to keep this somewhat interesting.

The winners:

Best Documentary:  Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Best Supporting Actor:  Adrien Brody, Midnight in Paris
Best Supporting Actress:  Catherine Keener, Being John Malkovich
Best Score: (TIE) Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey and Toy Story 3
Best Cinematography: (TIE)  Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Kontroll
Best Actor:  James Cagney, Yankee Doodle Dandy
Best Actress:  Sissy Spacek, In the Bedroom
Best Director: (TIE)  Robert Aldrich, Kiss Me Deadly and Akira Kurosawa, Throne of Blood
Best Picture: (TIE)  Midnight in Paris and The Conversation
