2017 Film Junk Junkers’ Choice Award Winners

2017junkerschoice

Our “Best of 2017″ lists won’t be officially unveiled until next week, but in the meantime, here is a quick assessment of some of the movies that other Film Junk fans and listeners most enjoyed in 2017. As always, we presented a list of nominees for several categories and then turned it over to you guys to cast your votes. The results showed that there were pretty clear winners in most categories with the exception of the Animated, Drama and Thriller categories (Best Animated film was decided by a single vote!). Even though the Best Movie of the Year allowed free-form entry, there was still a lot of agreement on a winner (on the other hand, many of the Best Movies were considered disappointments by others). Check out the full results of the 2017 Junkers’ Choice Awards below.

  • Colin

    Really surprising to see BR2049 beat out Dunkirk for Best Movie

  • kamenhaven

    Interesting how high The Last Jedi rated on both the Best and Biggest Disappointment of the year. This film really is that polarizing.

  • pcch7

    Very nice, deserved wins for Blade Runner

  • aliatari

    Man, that thriller category was stacked!

  • dgneb

    I feel at home in this community after reading these results.

    Blade Runner was a masterpiece. I also greatly liked Thelma….too bad that wasn’t an option.

  • Sean

    Thelma was an option in Best Foreign Film but not Sci-Fi.

  • Blake in Boston

    So many great films in the “Biggest Disappointment of the Year” category. This is why we can’t have nice things.

  • Beat_C

    thanks for the great work, guys ???????? although i’m disappointed the best movie of the year, “the square”, didn’t even win the foreign film category. also, is “okja” – produced by plan B and distributed by netflix – really a foreign film?

  • Strybeck

    My hot take: I think It Comes at Night is better than Get Out (but both are really great.

  • Roberto

    Lego Batman and Coco tied? And Lego Batman somehow won?! What is going on here Sean, the people demand an explanation.

  • Sean

    Yeah it’s up for debate… it’s a co-production with South Korea. I was mainly thinking “foreign language” films, but both Okja and Personal Shopper are partially in English so I guess that part is also up for debate.

  • Sean

    Lego Batman received one more vote than Coco.

  • Beat_C

    yeah, i guessed so and i can totally understand your point of view. also, “okja” was probably the only half-foreign thing most of your fans watched last year J/K “personal shopper” is a european production, so even if they speak english in the movie (as they did in “clouds of sils maria”, because there’s characters from various countries), it definitely qualfiies as a foreign movie.

  • devolutionary

    it’s a hot take that I happen to agree with. Looking back there is a mini backlash to the overwhelming critical praise of Get Out. Armond White notwithstanding.

  • Mrespony

    I claim that vote. I’m Batman.
