2013 Film Guy Awards Updates

Hello, Bloggers, after viewing and experiencing the brilliance that is Stories We Tell, it not only makes a splash on my 2013 ballot, but it wins Best Picture amongst my other five nominees. Because 2013 was a KILLER year for films (still in awe over how great it was), it feeels cruel to narrow it down to just five. Also, I made some changes to my other categories as Place Beyond The Pines has a strong showing in Best Supporting Actor and Actress with Ben Mendelsohn and Eva Mendes, respectively, making an appearance. I also added Sally Hawkins on my Supporting Actress ballot, taking out previous winner Scarlett Johansson for Her. But Johansson is still a Film Guy nominee and possible winner on an upcoming ballot, so no matter. You can see my updated ballot here.
