    So after creating my own FYC posts for Mad Max: Fury Road and Ex Machina, I figured I’d continue my trend of creating FYC posts for genre films by discussing Kingsman: The Secret Service and which categories it deserves serious contention for:

    Best Picture
    Best Actor (Taron Egerton)
    Best Adapted Screenplay
    Best Supporting Actor (Colin Firth and/or Samuel L. Jackson)
    Best Film Editing
    Best Sound Editing/Mixing

    Now, I’m sure plenty are wondering why I picked this film. But I think this film has plenty of layers to it as serves as a pastiche for spy or Bond movies while also demonstrating humanistic storytelling about a youth trying to become a better man and to stay true to himself. Plus, it is highly entertaining as well. I have a feeling some will see this as a doomed fan campaign and their stance is justified. It’s just I am still REALLY passionate about voters thinking outside the box, temporarily closing the Oscar bait factory. Do it like they did in the 70’s! 

    If there is one film that is a rather outside the box choice that you think should get Oscar recognition, I highly encourage you folks to create your own FYC post.

    Agreed. This film is fantastic, I saw it twice on opening weekend (and I really don’t do that often, the last time before that was the sixth Harry Potter movie) Along with Mad Max, we’ve had two fantastic action movies already this year. I can’t help but think that neither will be remembered at all come Oscar time, but their reward will be the great box office and eventual sequels. That church sequence was at the same level as some of the scenes from The Raid or Raid 2, which both featured some the best action of any recent film. It will really surprise me if Kingsman doesn’t make my top 10 at the end of the year, but I will be just as surprised if it does end up on the academy’s.

    I so endorse this. I thought this was a better overall movie than Mad Max so yeah it’s my favorite action movie of the year. I would put Colin Firth in place of Caine and Jackson though. I thought it was his best performance since King’s Speech and I would love to see him do more in the spy genre. I would love sound nominations and editing in a realistic world

    I think Colin Firth deserves recognition as well, he was fantastic, better than he had any right to be. It’s still one of my favorite performances of the year. The film itself is also terrific fun. I personally prefer ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, but it’s one of the year’s best surprises.

    Great news: Matthew Vaughn has said that he is currently writing the script for the sequel to Kingsman.
