The 2013 Biggie Awards (& My Top 10 of 2012)

The 24th Annual Biggie Awards

aka The Biggies

for achievements in film for the year 2012

I’ll be the first to admit I had unfair expectations for 2012. Given the impressive roster of movies on tap, I predicted as early as April of 2011 that 2012 would be the best year in movies since 2000, which I consider to be the best year for movies in my lifetime.

What I liked most about 2012 was that it had a lot of variety, as I think you’ll see reflected here in my nominees.

Who would they have worked with? I guess I just figured it would be cool to put down the names I think about most often and talk about why I miss them. Although I’m sure one exists somewhere out there, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else do a list like this. This particular one is comprised of people who died from 1990 thru 2012, so basically, during the time in which I’ve been an active moviegoer. To qualify, the person must have been younger than 75 at the time of their death, indicating that had they lived, they’d likely still have had years left to contribute, decades in some cases.
