The 6th Annual Awards Psychic Halfway Awards

It is hard to believe that it has been six years doing this, but here we are, and there are no signs of stopping anytime soon. For those who are not familiar with the Halfway Awards, it is my way of honoring the best films of the first half of the year. Some like Before Midnight end up going all the way and winning my year-end honors, others fall by the wayside. But it is always a fun way to take a look at the year as it stands. Also, keep looking for Emmy nomination predictions right up to the July 10th announcement, and then we turn our eyes to the Oscar race with my annual July predictions!

  1. A little surprised over the lack of The LEGO Movie, but excellent choices nonetheless.
