The 8th Annual 20/20 Nominees Honoring the Films of 1996
THE ENGLISH PATIENT racks up 12 nominations, excluding Best Picture

 At the crack of dawn at Seattle’s members only Casbah Club, the nominees for the 8th Annual 20/20 Awards were announced. Revisiting the films from 1996, THE ENGLISH PATIENT leads the pack with 12 nominations but was snubbed for Best Picture. The Best Picture nominees are FARGO (10 noms), TRAINSPOTTING (9 noms), SECRETS & LIES (5 noms), and JERRY MAGUIRE and SLING BLADE (each with 4 noms). 
Of note are a pair of newcomers, nominations for Ewan MacGregor and Robert Carlyle for TRAINSPOTTING, John Ritter who was overlooked for SLING BLADE, and the addition of both Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly from BOUND. Also getting a fair shake are the documentary PARADISE LOST and foreign favorite SHALL WE DANCE?

Here is the complete list of nominees. 

Winners of the 8th Annual 20/20 Awards will be announced on Thursday February 23, 2016.

The 20/20 Awards views films through the perspective of time and annually re-evaluates films from 20 years prior. Benefiting from hindsight, a voting body of film industry professionals elects new and/or previous nominees. Then we host a live awards ceremony designed to both honor and offer new analytical perspectives on the impact of the 20 year old films, past cinema in general, and its influence on our present culture. It is our hope this fresh analytical method brings a new voice to the films of the past.
