The Results Are In! Find Out the Winners of the 1st Annual FilmExodus Awards!

The results are in and the FilmExodus Community is proud to announce the winners of the 1st Annual FilmExodus Awards (or 2019 Bernies for you hip kids).

The Bernies celebrates all the films released in 2018. We didn’t care if it was a laugh-out-loud comedy, a $200 million dollar blockbuster, or a prestigious indie. If it was good, there was a high chance it got nominated. Voting was open to the public for two weeks during the middle of February.

Sailor Monsoon was originally going to host, but we think he’s off on a Vodquil rampage through Hollywood. So we’re going hostless too Oscars!
