3rd Annual Rants Of A Crazy Person Award Nominations

Posted: January 7, 2014 in award season, Movie Reviews 2013, movies, ROCP Awards

I know you’ve all been on the edge of your seats waiting for the nominations for the very prestigious 3rd Annual ROCP awards. It comes late this year, partially because I wanted to be able to watch more of the “Oscar” contenders, and the Golden Globe nominees. I still have two films to watch Dallas Buyers Club and Inside Llewlyn Davis that could potentially make this list (from the rave reviews I have a feeling Jared Leto and Matthew Mcconaughey will be making an appearance), but here are my nominations.

Check back this weekend for the winners! Don’t be surprised if there are additional nominations for the above movies…I’ve added a few more categories from last years. Let me know if I forgot anyone.
