nightmare on film street freddy's horror awards

The 2017 FREDDY'S

Horror Awards

Horror movies have never had a very large turnout at the annual Oscars gala. Gore isn’t reserved a seat.  The answer when reporters ask “What Are you wearing?” isn’t “Someone else’s face”.

Until now. 

We here at Nightmare on Film Street want to honor Horror films; the films that delve into the darker side of humanity, the freaky fantastical, and the morbidly hilarious. Enter THE FREDDY’S – HORROR AWARDS. (Consider Freddy the maniacal younger brother of the perfect, pristine Oscar) And you, the esteemed Horror Public, will be making all of the decisions.


Your Role

You’ll be able to Nominate, Vote, and Recognize the gory, the depraved, and the terrifying- just like dramas and period pieces at the Academy Awards. Public Nominations are open for categories such as ‘Best Actress‘, ‘Best Cinematography‘, and ‘Best Documentary Feature‘! Help us to celebrate all things Horror in the first annual Freddy’s!


Thank you, voting has now closed. Please check back March 1st for the final winners!
