The 3rd Annual Cinemaniac Awards – NOMINEES

I’m a little late this time, but better late than never, I suppose. Especially since I’ve been compiling this list since early January, maybe even late December. Anyway, 2014 was a really great year in movies, which is part of the reason why coming up with a full list of nominees for this year’s Cinemaniac Awards has taken me so long.

Please note that any films given a limited release in 2014, and then a wide release in 2015, will be eligible for next year’s ceremony. This includes Selma and American Sniper.

I’m interested to hear what all of you think of the nominees this year. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment on this post. So now, without further ado, I give you the nominees for the 3rd Annual Cinemaniac Awards:
