The 3rd Annual Jackoff Awards TRAILER (Tenet Final Trailer Style)

Hey everyone, Jack Drees here! Today we are unveiling the all new trailer for The 3rd Annual Jackoff Awards! As of now, the ceremony has an official release date! That by the way, depending on how things go, is March 14th. I said this ceremony would take place this winter and I choose to honor that timeframe. Promises made! Promises kept! I feel like a politician!

For those unfamiliar with the Jackoffs, or for those who need a refresher, the Jackoffs is a ceremony I do every year where I take a good portion of the year’s films and nominate them for the achievements they’ve reached. It’s basically the Scene Before version of the Oscars. We have categories like Best Animated Feature, Best Cinematography, Best Director, all of which are an appetizer for Best Picture, which to avoid predictability, is chosen by popular vote. This year could be tough because movies in general have not done as well in recent months, but I will do my best to decide whether a popular vote is worth keeping or worth discarding.

If you remember, the last trailer I did was basically a teaser just reminding you that the ceremony was happening, where I did a tribute to one of my favorite game shows on the air, NBC’s “The Wall.” However, for this trailer, I am sticking with the theme of 2020 cinema, because I have decided to do this trailer in the style of one of the year’s most talked about films, “Tenet.” Considering this, I am showing a bunch of clips related to the 2020 cinematic calendar with Travis Scott’s “The Plan” playing in the background.

I should remind you, this trailer will likely not reflect all the movies that will be nominated. There is a good chance that all these movies could be recognized, but as for whether they will get a nomination for the ceremony, that remains a mystery. I admittedly still have movies that I need to watch in advance to make a certain part of the ceremony possible. And unlike ceremonies such as the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards, which are bending their rules slightly this year to allow films like “The Little Things” or “Judas and the Black Messiah” to be nominated, I am only going to accept films that had a theatrical premiere or release from January to December 2020. Although films like “Minari” and “Nomadland,” which premiered virtually in 2020 and are going to be theatrically released later on will count should I get around to them.

The 3rd Annual Jackoffs hits Scene Before on March 14th, with nominations being announced on February 28th! Watch the brand new trailer and get ready for a ceremony that will remind you that winning is not cancelled!
