AFT Awards: Best Opening

This is the twenty-third category of the 4th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category.

Note: This category is for opening sequences. Full scenes like those in “The Social Network” are represented in the upcoming Top 15 Scenes of the Year.

The winner:
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World established its distinctive style with its visually-assisted musical performance of “We Are Sex Bob-Omb!”

Other nominees:
Please Give hilariously began with a montage of mammograms set to “No Shoes” by The Roches. District 13: Ultimatum offered a crash course in its universe with an exciting, pulsating introduction to its colorful characters. The Disappearance of Alice Creed started out as a taut thriller with a scored, silent assembly line preparation for an abduction. The Killer Inside Me was moody and old-fashioned fun in its splattered credits sequence.
