Two years in the past, following the shortage of recognition on the Oscars for horror movies, Hint Thurman and I created “The Hereditaries” (named after Toni Collette’s Hereditary omission), a sequence of horror awards to acknowledge the entire nice work being finished within the style.
The response that we acquired was out of this world and we instantly determined to make the awards an annual occasion.
Enter the third annual Hereditaries, which celebrates the superb range of horror movies launched in 2021. Starting from blockbusters like Candyman and The Night time Home to avant-garde indies like The Feast and Titane to “underneath the radar” releases like Shudder’s The Boy Behind The Door and The Medium, we’re shining a lightweight on the entire nice horror content material that has come out throughout (yet one more!) unorthodox yr.
Right here’s what you’re voting on:
Greatest Extensive Launch
Greatest Non-English Horror
Greatest Beneath The Radar
Greatest Horror TV
Greatest First Characteristic Director
Greatest Supporting Actor
Greatest Supporting Actress
Greatest Youngster/Teen Actor
Greatest Creature Design – New for 2021
Greatest Ending – New for 2021
Context: The 18 classes have been knowledgeable by listener responses after which narrowed down by Hint and I. As a way to be eligible, movies needed to be broadly accessible this yr (both broad theatrical, VOD or on streaming companies), which sadly means no pageant exclusives.
As a way to maintain the voting aggressive, most classes have been capped at 5 nominees and movies have been solely eligible as soon as per class. This inevitably implies that some favourites have been omitted, however that is greatest means to make sure a decent race. Kill your darlings, people!
Lastly, we’ve additionally added spoiler warnings for the final 4 classes, simply in case you haven’t seen movies like Violation, Outdated or Silent Night time.
