We've always considered Boise Weekly readers to be Oscar-caliber. But this year, along with our friends at The Balcony and The Flicks, BW is offering a bit of our own red carpet revelry with the 2016 Red Carpet Movie Awards. First prize is an amazing unlimited movie pass to the Flicks for a full year; second prize is an overnight stay at Cactus Pete's in Jackpot, Nev.; third prize is a $75 bar tab at The Balcony; fourth prize is a 10-admission movie pass to The Flicks; and fifth prize includes two movie tickets to any show at The Flicks.
Entry is very simple. Register at redcarpetballot.boiseweekly.com, You can also text "boiseweekly" to 77948 and have the ballot sent to your smartphone. Make your picks (and share them with your friends). That's it. Voting is open until 5 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 28. Enjoy the show, or join the fun at The Balcony's own Red Carpet extravaganza, starting about one hour before the ceremony and continuing through the night.
Need some help on some of the tougher categories? I've made my own picks on a sample ballot below (feel free to use any of them). But honestly, your guess is as good as mine.
