Alliance of Women Film Journalists Awards

Tilda Swinton in Snowpiercer
We hadn't heard of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists Awards before now, but they sound awfully fun.

Like the Cosmique Movie Awards, they give awards to films in both traditional and unconventional categories. Some of their more conventional awards this year went to Boyhood for Best Film, Richard Linklater (Boyhood) for Best Director, Michael Keaton (Birdman) for Best Actor, and Julianne Moore (Still Alice) for Best Actress.

But they also have some really fun awards of note that are limited only to female nominees, including:

  • Best Woman Director - Ava DuVernay for Selma
  • Best Female Action Star - Emily Blunt for Edge of Tomorrow
  • Best Depiction Of Nudity, Sexuality, or Seduction - Scarlett Johansson for Under the Skin
  • Actress Defying Age and Ageism - Tilda Swinton (who also won Best Supporting Actress for Snowpiercer)
  • Most Egregious Age Difference Between The Leading Man and The Love Interest - Colin Firth (b. 1960) and Emma Stone (b. 1988) for Magic in the Moonlight
  • Actress Most in Need Of A New Agent - Cameron Diaz for Sex Tape

We're going to make a note to keep this one on our radar. Check out their full list of winners.
