Last off-season, as Oscar nominations were announced, we decided at Around the Foghorn to get creative with the categories and create our own nominations for the 2016 San Francisco Giants.
This year, we have decided to bring it back.
We will be looking at the following categories with our own baseball twists: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Starring Role, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Original Screenplay, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Short Film (Live Action), Best Sound Mixing, and Best Song.
For Best Picture, we will literally look at the best photos taken in 2017.
For Best Director, we will look at the coaches as well as the front office.
