It’s time to vote for your favorite film achievements in our 20th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards! When it comes to movies, 2021 has been no less messy than 2020, with streamers like Netflix and Amazon continuing to produce movies primarily for the web, while other studios have embraced hybrid models or gone exclusively facing the rooms. But regardless of how you’ve watched movies this year, be sure to support your favorite 2021 releases (except for January and February movies like “Judas and the Black Messiah” which were considered in the previous rewards cycle due to the pandemic). Enter now to choose from 22 categories. Voting will be open until Sunday, January 23 at 9:00 p.m. Pacific/12:00 a.m. EST.
To vote for our rewards, visit our prediction center here. Then scroll down to “2022 Gold Derby Film Awards Nominations” and click on the green box that says “VOTE” to choose from as many or as few categories as you want.
For nominations voting, we use a ranked ballot, so you’ll rank your top three picks in all categories except Best Picture, where you can vote for up to five movies. Click on a category at the top of the predictions page. Below, add the candidates from the left column to the right column by clicking on the green + symbol. Arrange them in the order of your preference (number one is your first choice). Grab each entry to drag them up or down to make changes, and be sure to click TO SAVE. (Illustrated instructions are at the bottom of this article.)
Your first choice gets three points, your second choice gets two, and your third choice gets one, except in Best Picture, where your first choice gets five points, your second choice gets four points, and so on. Whoever has the most points at the end of the vote will be our official nominee, so passion is key: it takes multiple votes for third place to equal the voting power of one vote for first place.
You have until the late night of January 23 to make your final choices, so there’s still time to catch up with the contenders you haven’t seen yet. But you don’t have to wait to see it all: you can vote now and come back to edit your ballot as often as you like. No one’s choices are final until voting is closed.
Voting for our awards has evolved over the years. From 2002 to 2010, voting took place by secret ballot on our electronic bulletin boards. In 2011, the voting moved to our prediction hub, and while Gold Derby was okay with the Oscars from 2011 to 2013, our users have gone their own way for the most part since then.
In 2014, the Oscars elected “Birdman” as best picture, but we opted for “Boyhood”. In 2015, the Oscars chose “Spotlight”, but we opted for “Mad Max: Fury Road”. In 2016, the Oscars surprised us by awarding “Moonlight” when we (and most other awards groups) chose “La La Land.” For 2017, the Oscars went to ‘The Shape of Water’, while we gave top honors to ‘Call Me by Your Name’. And for 2018, we gave Best Picture to “Roma” while the Oscars preferred “Green Book.” But Gold Derby and Oscar have been in agreement for two years: we both picked ‘Parasite’ for 2019, which also won our Best Picture of the Decade award, and then ‘Nomadand’ won both for 2020. full list of last year’s award winners here.
