Nominations for the 6th Annual Jammies

What a year 2019 was for cinema. And what a cracking awards season we’ve been having. Anyone voting this year is truly spoiled for choice across practically every category, which has naturally led to some painful omissions. As such, we head into the sixth year of the Jammies with plenty of difficult decisions to be made.

This year, we’re doing things a little differently. First up, you’ll be presented the final six nominations for all categories with the winners being announced a few days later. And, given it’s the end of the decade, there are three bonus awards this year to celebrate the actors and filmmakers who’ve crafted consistently spectacular work over the last ten years.
