The 2nd Annual Movie Talk With Jake Salinas Awards

american-hustleAlright, here we are again. I enjoyed doing it last year so I thought, what the hell, let’s do it again. I’m of course talking about the 2nd Annual Movie Talk With Jake Salinas Awards, or the M.T.W.J.S. Awards to make it shorter. I always get pissed off at the academy for not recognizing films that I enjoyed or performances, etc. So here, I will honor what I feel is the best of the best. I’ll start out with the technical categories, then move on the writing, acting, directing, and then best picture. I don’t like to beat around the bush, so let’s get to it, shall we?
