The Boys, Supernatural, Da 5 Bloods win big at action-friendly Super Awards

Last June, the Academy of Movement Pictures Arts & Sciences made the unmatched choice to bump the yearly Oscars event from winter season to April 2021, and move the eligibility window to the end of February. The hope was that films that dealt with hold-ups over the COVID-19 pandemic may be able to cover in time for release, and provide the year a robust collection of competitors as if whatever was regular. To compensate, a lot of the awards season mile markers, like the Golden Globes and the Critics Option Awards, likewise transferred to later on dates.

Without January’s normal gluttony of dramas commanding the discussion, the Broadcast Movie Critics Association, the group that arranges the Critics Option Awards, chose to benefit from the minute and honor movies seldom represented at the Oscars. The Super Awards, which aired on Sunday night, was the Broadcast Movie Critics Association’s (BFCA) very first genre-movie awards reveal, an eminence option to the MTV Film Awards honoring the very best of the year in action, scary, sci-fi, and superhero movie theater (a classification that likewise included Computer game Movies due to the fact that sure why not). There’s a reasonable argument that developing an alternative awards reveal recommends that category films don’t belong in the regular Oscar discussion, in spite of whatever from Lord of the Rings to District 9 and Black Panther showing otherwise. However because the standard awards narrative essentially omits action, scary, and sci-fi usually, why not hire Kevin Smith and Dani Fernandez to invest 2 hours paying aspects on The CW when absolutely nothing else is going on?

The best part of the inaugural Super Awards winners is that there are some genuine surprises, due to the fact that 2020 took its toll on the Hollywood release schedule, and that the BFCA continued to skew toward the mainstream instead of wading into grungier VOD offerings. This is not a group that is bowing at the altar of Scott Adkins and mainlining HiGH&LOW movies on Netflix. So Da 5 Bloods is the big winner in the action category. Is Da 5 Bloods even an action movie? There are at least 2 shootouts. Possibly that’s enough? An action lover may roll their eyes.

Still, there are movies and series amongst the winners that would never ever discover love anywhere else, making the list a deserving discussion starter. Here are the winners of the 2020 Super Awards. A couple of might even wind up at the Oscars.
