AFT Awards: Best Opening

This is the twenty-second category of the 11th 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. Click here to see previous years of this category. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Runner-up: The Florida Project

The winner:
Molly’s Game didn’t need to dive right into its protagonist’s time spent as a poker game runner, choosing instead to have her introduce herself with a detailed breakdown of the end of her skiing career, culminating in an intense conclusion that set this film’s events in motion.

Other nominees:
The Greatest Showman got off to an energizing musical start with its title song, amping up the excitement from the beginning with a strong song and good beat to go along with it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 frontloaded its action-packed runtime with a humorous opening scene and then a fantastic jam session featuring Baby Groot.
