2nd Annual ROCP Award Nominations

Posted: December 29, 2012 in award season, movies

Well the movie year is coming to a close and it’s time to announce my nominations for the 2nd Annual 2012 ROCP Awards.  There’s been a lot of great movies these past few months, but I do my awards on my OWN terms. Here are my nominations, check back New Years Day (Jan 1, 2013) for my results. I could be persuaded to include write in nominations if you give me good reasons! I’ve also added a few more categories from last year’s awards….
