Hello everyone!

I am proud to announce the 2009 Bricks in Motion Awards! This event is an annual award presentation that recognizes brickfilms that do extraordinarily in many

aspects of film and entertainment, these awards being for films made in 2009. The Bricks in Motion Awards are like the Oscars for brickfilms.

I will be organizing this year’s Awards, and with the help of the judges, have finished the nominee list for the 2009 Bricks in Motion Awards. Ballots were sent out to

members who’d been invited to judge. They were to choose 3 films for each category that they felt deserved to be nominated for that specific category. The ballots

were tallied up, and the top 4 films for each category became the nominee list, which is what is shown at the bottom.

Categories and Nominations

The categories will be described along with their nominations. Judges will soon be sent ballots for the winners; the ballots will be tallied up, and all awards will be

announced in a live chat session, (more details later). The films are listed in alphabetical order, and are not ordered with any bias or favouring. The judges were not

allowed to nominate their own film, as the awards are meant to be as fair as possible.

All brickfilms with directors on BricksInMotion.com 2009 were eligible.

Looks like FancyPants is up for quite a few. GO MAN GO.

Congrats to all the nominees! mini/smile

IMO, this feels a little bias, just like last year, except with Fancypants' Clone Halloween instead of Unrenewable.
Not that I don't like Clone Halloween or Unrenewable, it's just an observation I made.

The thing is if a director makes good film, they are likely, more so in brickfilming, to do things well in almost every area; that's what makes the film good.  A Clone Halloween has great technical work in all areas so it's naturally going to get a lot of nominations.
