The Film Nest’s 2012 Platinum Nest Movie Awards

The Film Nest’s Platinum Nest Awards For 2012 Movie Year

In what has actually been a fairly decent movie year, at least as far as the top films of the year goes, I struggled to conclude what would win the overall big prize of Platinum Nest Best Picture. I continually, even as I write this list, flip flop between Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. Both are wholly original works and both are completely different movies and thus difficult to compare. Ultimately, the primacy-recency theory is also at play with Django having been released half a year after The Master. Still, in the slightest of edges, as I write today, I am going with PTA’s completely genius opus. Top to bottom, from acting to originality, I give it the very slightest of edges. I can accept either as the award winner in any category though, essentially. Read on for the rest of the winners and losers of The Film Nest’s Platinum Nest 2012 Movie Awards.
