From the Editors: The 2nd Annual High Contrast Awards

Nate and Alex:

Let us offer a belated welcome to 2020. To wrap up 2019, we are presenting our 2nd annual recognition of the best of the past year in film. Unlike last year, when just the two of us selected the winners, this year’s awards began with a shortlist of nominees that we voted on along with our contributors and those who support our blog behind the scenes. It is our belief that this process resulted in a better representation of what really made an impact in 2019, rather than just reflecting the opinions the two of us shared throughout the year in our reviews. Without any further delay, let’s get to the winners!
