Here are your 2018 Golden Cage award winners


There are approximately 20 people who were happy that Green Book won Best Picture at the Oscars last night and they were all on the stage to accept the award. The rest of the world was more in line with Spike Lee as he nearly stormed out of the theater. Thankfully, we here at Flixist have the antidote to the stodgy old Oscars: The Golden Cages. 

If you’ve been following along for the last two weeks you’ve seen us revealing the winners for each category, culminating in this past weekend’s announcements of the winners for Worst Film and Best Film. It’s possible, however, that you weren’t paying attention the entire time and so below you’ll find the full listing of our awards so you may nod your head in agreement at how wise we are. Winners are bolded with links to their posts.
