Year-in Awards 2020

Published: 21-01-2021

1st annual Year-in Awards

The Year-in Awards, purely intended as an imitation of the Oscars in the image of Mark’s Remarks. The awards focus on all films published in 2020 as long as their reviewed by me. A look back at everything seen this year dividing the excellent from the mediocre.

The following list is a compilation of the films I’ve reviewed, some films released this year might not be included purely due to that fact I have not seen or reviewed them. This is my first attempt of watching everything worthwhile in a year. Apart from those films missing, content like this is bound to evoke disagreement, in those cases please understand these are my personal choices and I’m not discounting any differing opinions

Despite exclusively taking in 2020 releases there are a few films that had already been shown during film festivals in 2019, due to their theatrical release during the course of this year these still made the cut.

For the awards in different genres, I couldn’t include everything due to either a lack of award-worthy contenders or shortcoming in the specific genre this year.

With all that aside, I hereby present my first Year-In Awards, something new, something interesting. Who are the winners of Mark’s Mark? Find out below.
