Those BASE Awards nominations in full…

It’s the first year for the new incarnation of the industry’s premier awards event, as the name change for the trade body formally known as the BVA means that they ceremony and evening is now being held under the banner of the BASE Awards, and, after a day’s judging event, the full shortlist has now been revealed.

Universal dominates the proceedings, with a total of eight nominations, showing its dominance across the sector in 2015, with the sheer breadth of titles up for gongs highlighting just hjow strong its slate was acres the board, taking in everything from Barbie to Jurassic World, taking in comedy, fitness, DTV fare and more.

Studiocanal cements its growing reputation as a major player by earning nods across the board too, four showing its ability to handle mainstream family fare from theatrical and TV franchises (Paddington and Bing), elevate 18-rated titles to big success (Legend) and continue to work its impressive catalogue.

Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and HMV all score big across the more traditional retail categories, while the likes of Sky and Amazon are strong in the digital sectors.

And in the film categories, it’s good to see the likes of Arrow and Signature taking on the studios with their innovative marketing and release strategies, again highlighting the scope of our business. Commetning on the nominations and judging, BASE chief executive Liz Bales said: “We are thrilled to announce the shortlist for the 2016 BASE Awards, each year the standard of entries is astoundingly high and it’s consistently challenging to whittle down entries to a handful for the shortlist.  All entrants should be extremely proud of the work entered for the awards, it is testament to the skills and experience that drive the category forward.

Many thanks to all our judges for their expertise and professionalism in evaluating the entries, and for their valuable contribution and ongoing support.”
The winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony held in its new home over in east London, Tobacco Dock, on June 9. For ticket details and more information, contact Vicki Geddes at vicki@baseorg.uk or via www.base.org…
