Our fan led community version of the Oscars
The Deathies is a community award ceremonies run by the AoDR where members and friends can vote on the year's Academy Award categories as if they were members of that academy!
In addition, our own special branches create their own category, which can then be voted on by all particpants.
In addition to the nominees in each categories in the year's Academy Awards, the AoDR consists of 6 branches, each of which create a category and shortlist nominees that go forward to the Deathies ballot.
In 2023, the branches and their categories were:
- Food & Drink Branch - The Best Food or Drink Scene
- Animal Lovers Branch - The Best Animal Performance [The Johnny Award]
- Kino Branch - The Best Kino Film
- Queer Branch - The Best LGBTQ+ Film [The Queer Palme d’AoDR]
- Creators Branch - The Best Conversation Piece [The Biggest Cow Award]
Any member of the AoDR can join multiple branches, and be involved in creating the branch categories and shortlist that year. For further information, see the Community branches section of this site, or the individual branch's page.
