Each year TheSkyKid.Com announces nominations for a special kind of award: The Coming of Age Movie Awards.
In 2009, when we launched this new project, we did not have an established format. That’s why the nominations for that year were not chosen with a specific release year in mind. In 2010, the choice of the nominated films and actors was more focused.
For this year’s 3rd edition of the awards, in addition to the other criteria applied to the films, in order to be considered for nomination we have added an extra one: the release data of the nominated films. Therefore, for 2011, we have chosen films released in 2010.
You may recall that, in 2010, we hoped to have an official event to announce the winners of the awards. Several alternatives were considered – one of them being participating in a European film festival. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to secure a presence at an offline event. However, this remains a goal we would try to achieve in the future.
Most of the titles included in the nominations will be familiar to you. If you are not sure about a certain title, feel free to use the search engine at theskykid.com or IMBD to learn more about the film in question. All nominated films belong to the coming of age genre . For newbies to the genre, and for those who would like to refresh their knowledge, I recommend that you read the article entitled Coming of Age Films – definition.
Voting is open until 3rd of May 2011. The winners will be announced on this web page, which is going to be updated to include detailed information for the films that receive recognition each consecutive year. Happy Voting!!
