After a 2012 of seeing, quite frankly, too many movies, and watching too many award shows filled with snubs, Flickchart users have once again voted for their favorites from the last year in a variety of categories. In the first ever Flickcharters’ Choice Awards, users picked Drive as their best film of the year.
Once again this year, Flickchart users voted on their nominees, then once all votes were tallied, voted on their favorites in each category. 2012 was a great year in film, making it even harder to narrow the bests of the year to just five, then to one final winner. Through hard choices, fantastic films, and even some awful disappointments, the winners are finally here. So without further ado, here are your 2nd Annual Flickcharters’ Choice Awards Winners!
Last year, we decided that our voices needed to be heard. Among all the award shows and critic’s groups, it seemed like they never got things quite right – so we decided to take our own stab at it. Last year’s best picture nominees included Oscar nominees like Midnight in Paris and The Ides of March, with favorites like Drive (last year’s big winner), Melancholia and Take Shelter, to create a hybrid awards that mixed critical adoration and fan admiration.
Since the first year was a success, we brought it back for 2012. We increased the voting pool and even changed around some categories. So without further ado, here are the nominations that you came up with for the 2nd Annual Flickcharters’ Choice Awards!
Over 40 million rankings have been made in 2012. You’ve added every movie you’ve seen from the year to your Flickchart, and pit them head-to-head against the best movies of all time. This breakdown of the year’s best is the result of each and every one of your rankings aggregated together to form the combined chart of the highest ranked, best movies of 2012.
Without further adieu – out of over 1000 total movies released this year – here are your current picks for the Top 20 of 2012:
Disney Movies Online has been the digital streaming service for the company since 2008. If you had a Disney Magic Rewards account, whenever you redeemed the code for any Disney DVD or Blu-ray Disc that included a Digital Copy, you also unlocked a streaming copy of that film through your Disney Movies Online account. It was all automatic; you didn’t have to do anything except redeem your Magic Rewards Code and Disney did the rest for you.
Flickchart at its core is about two big things: helping you discover and rank movies to develop a coherent chart of your favorites, and mashing everyone’s individual charts into a globe-straddling list of the greatest movies of all time. All the other stuff — social features, recommendations, and so on — flow from these overarching pair of concepts. If either are broken, it’ll ripple through the site in ways small and large.
