Please post the surprise films yr considering (and you would like yr fellow filmspotter to consider) for the 2014 Filmspots here and check this list before nominating. When posting if you could add some detail as to why your particular selection came as a surprise it may help other evaluate it as well.
Any relevant questions whose answers may benefit everyone will also be added to this post... with said answers, obviously.Note:
Films that earn nominations in certain major award categories (Picture, Ensemble Cast, Animated Film, Documentary, and Debut Feature) will become ineligible for the Surprise category.
What is the Surprise category?
It's a chance to honor films that, even though they might not be Top 5 of the year material, still exceeded expectations — or came totally out of left field — and were, as the name implies, a pleasant surprise. Previous winners include 21 Jump Street, Warrior, 17 Again, Chop Shop, and Once, which beat out nominees such as Dredd, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Cedar Rapids, Humpday, Paranormal Activity, Redbelt, Mister Lonely, This is England, and Enchanted.
