Never mind Oscar, here’s the 2014 FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards Nominees Ballot!

CHAINSAWAWARDS14BALLFEAT

Yes, the nominations for those other awards were announced this morning, but where do fright fans get the chance to vote on the horror year’s best? In our annual Chainsaw Awards, honoring the best and bloodiest of 2013. Jump past the jump for all the nominees.

For this year’s round of nominations, we’re sticking to movies that have a true horror vibe, as opposed to sci-fi/action (which means we’re excluding PACIFIC RIM and THE WORLD’S END—sorry!). E-mail your choices—one list only per person, please—to postalzone@starloggroup.com. Be sure to vote in all categories; personal e-mails only, no mass ballots. For the Fango Hall of Fame, be sure not to vote for Forrest J Ackerman, Dario Argento, Tom Atkins, Rick Baker, Clive Barker, Mario Bava, Tobin Bell, Rob Bottin, Doug Bradley, Tim Burton, James Cameron, Bruce Campbell, John Carpenter, Jeffrey Combs, Roger Corman, Don Coscarelli, Wes Craven, David Cronenberg, Jamie Lee Curtis, Peter Cushing, Joe Dante, Guillermo del Toro, Brad Dourif, Robert Englund, Larry Fessenden, Lucio Fulci, Stuart Gordon, Sid Haig, Danielle Harris, Lance Henriksen, Bill Hinzman, Kane Hodder, Tobe Hooper, Anthony Hopkins, Peter Jackson, Doug Jones, Udo Kier, Stephen King, KNB EFX, Heather Langenkamp, Christopher Lee, David Lynch, Richard Matheson, Dick Miller, Bill Moseley, Paul Naschy, Bill Paxton, Emily Perkins, Ron Perlman, Donald Pleasence, Vincent Price, Linnea Quigley, Sam Raimi, George Romero, Eli Roth, Tom Savini, Angus Scrimm, Dick Smith, Christopher Walken, Sigourney Weaver, Joss Whedon, Kevin Williamson, Stan Winston, Kevin Yagher or Rob Zombie—they’re already members.

Write-in votes are acceptable in all categories. Deadline for ballots is March 20; winners will be announced in Fango #334, on sale in May, and at this site the same month.

  • Sarah Dgaf

    Evil Dead is going to take every catagory its in. GOOD LUCK!

  • HeatherSeebach

    No director category?

    • Luis Mariano Garcia

      Agree. There should be such category, come on.

  • Kell y Rawn

    Hell yeah awesome list…especially love that Tristan Risk and Katharine Isabelle are in there. WD Ladies. A few other faves in there (Stephen McHattie) but those two ladies are my most fave choices of course because I adore “American Mary”

  • Lord Elric

    Whoops. Nothing for Vera Farmiga?

  • Fredkrueger29

    You’re Next,You’re Next!!!It’s the best!

  • Jill Sixx

    where do we vote?

  • Wally E

    You should have a director category. Best film means the whole team (or producers)

  • Johnny Zero

    Where are the categories for costumes, sets, photography, editing and sound?

  • Jorge Nitales

    MACHETE KILLS and WE ARE WHAT WE ARE for WORST PICTURE.

  • Matt Faure

    Worst film: All The Boys Love Mandy Lane.

    It was made in 2006 but RELEASED in 2013, so I still count it. They SAY it took so long to release because of “distribution problems”. I’d have a problem distributing such an unimaginative film too.

    • Jodi Barrett

      I never understood it. I watched this film 4 years ago on the horror channel so it must have been released before 2013. Weird.

  • DP Craig

    Annabelle should be nominated and win Best Supporting Actress.

  • Hewho Shouldnot Benamed

    Wish it were televised since they cancelled SpikeTv The Scream Awards a few years back. My picks and yes this will be a long read. If you disagree whatever these are my picks I don’t give a shit about yours so keep it to yourself and like what you like. Plus I haven’t seen them all so I reserve the right to not choose in any category and say whatever I like. BEST WIDE-RELEASE FILM-THE CONJURING/ BEST LIMITED-RELEASE/DIRECT-TO-VIDEO FILM-Whatever I didn’t care for any of the ones I saw./ BEST FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM-Haven’t seen any of them and I hate subtitles./ BEST ACTOR-Patrick Wilson, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2/ BEST ACTRESS-Katharine Isabelle, AMERICAN MARY/ BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR-Stephen McHattie, HAUNTER/ BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS-Lili Taylor, THE CONJURING/ BEST SCREENPLAY-Didn’t like the plot that much for any of the 3 I saw or 4 trailers I saw so one is as good as another/ BEST SCORE-I usually don’t pay enough attention to care or distinguish one from another so no choice/ BEST MAKEUP/CREATURE FX-Roger Murray, EVIL DEAD/ WORST FILM-Fright Night 2: New Blood or V/H/S/2

  • Jay H.

    “Maniac” is NOT nominated for BEST LIMITED-RELEASE/DIRECT-TO-VIDEO FILM???

    What a joke.

  • manapelike

    Lili Taylor winner! The Conjuring deserves it.

  • Mark Krawczyk

    Worst Film: Texas Chainsaw 3d

  • Evan

    Everything American Mary!

  • Seph

    Nothing for Vera but yet you have You’re Next on here? You’re Next had great marketing but the film didn’t live up to the hype. Not knocking anyone involved and Sharni is very nice in person but the film wasn’t that great.

  • Nope

    I hated almost everything about Evil Dead, but how the hell did Jane Levy not get a nomination? She’s the best thing in it!

  • Nope

    Also: Vote The Conjuring

  • H3WM3R

    Rutger Howard for his turns in the hitcher, and hobo with a shotgun. He also played a good roll as Rourke the cannabilistic priest in sin city.

  • barry m

    Jugface!

  • Wendy

    EVIL DEAD COOL THE BEST FOR ME

  • Yas

    Im voting Magic Magic was the worst movie in 2013. The characters and story angered me! Also voting Adam Green to be inducted into the hall of fame

    worst film. Devils Pass aka Dyatlov Pass Incident. Can I have that time frame back please?

    Best actress: Katherine Isabelle of course. She’s come along way from seeing her as a werewolf in puberty. And really American Mary is the coolest film to ever come out of Canada!

    Supporting Actress: Tristan Risk… hands down the hottest little minx to come out of Vancouver and a damn good actor to boot!

  • https://lazysight.wordpress.com/ sarCCastro
