The Craigy Decade Awards – Celebrating the best of Film (Part One)

With the decade almost over, I have decided the form the ‘Craigy’ awards which celebrate the best of film and television over the past ten years.

The big-screen is the centre of attention this time with films like Avengers: Endgame, The King’s Speech and Les Miserables amongst the major winners.

This first edition of the film awards centres on various categories including “Best Musical Sequence of the Decade”, “Best Kiss of the Decade” and “Best Hero / Villain of the Decade”.

As previously mentioned in the TV articles, I have created a special drop-down option that enables readers to choose the category they want rather than scrolling down. With all said and done then….
