Our NYMF 2016 Nominations + Awards Predictions!

The NYMF Awards for Excellence Ceremony is tonight!

Both nominations and awards will be announced tonight. Here are our best bets on what will be nominated! Each listing in bold is our guess for who will win in each category.

A couple of notes: We were able to review 16 of the 18 contenders this year (whew!), so “Icon” and “The Last Word” are not included in our predictions. (Best of luck to them tonight, though!)

Also, the “Outstanding Individual Performance” awards are given to a variable list of winners instead of just one person winning, so the list below are our guesses for all of the winners for that category.
