IGN’s Best of 2019 Awards Nominees

It’s been a wild year in the world of pop culture, from games of yesteryear returning with surprisingly excellent remakes to some of the biggest cinematic events in recent memory. There’s so much Peak TV now that we basically don’t sleep anymore, and there is a consistently great array of comic books being released each month.

From comics to TV, anime, movies and games, here are our nominees for the best that entertainment had to offer in 2019.

Best Game Award Categories for 2019

2019 was a year full of surprises for the gaming community. From Mr. X’s triumphant (and terrifying) return in the Resident Evil 2 remake to the bizarre characters to meet (and help/betray/mess with) in The Outer Worlds, it’s been full of some excellent comfort-food games and new standouts alike. With plenty of standout direction and design, there’s a lot to celebrate in this year’s crop of games. To that end, here are IGN’s Game of the Year awards nominees for 2019:

Best Movie Award Categories for 2019

With the year coming to a close and awards season in full steam, it’s time to celebrate the films that have wowed us most in 2019. From comic book movies, both epic and intimate, to action extravaganzas, compelling dramas, uproarious comedies and more, we found the following films and artists to be this year’s biggest standouts. Here then are our movie of the year awards nominees for 2019…

Best TV Show Award Categories for 2019

They say it’s a new Golden Age for TV, and you know what? It’s true. In fact, the biggest problem we have these days is finding the time to actually watch everything that’s worth checking out. And 2019 continued the trend of TV’s ascension in the pop-culture pantheon, with streaming services and cable networks jockeying for position and the viewer reaping the benefits with so many terrific shows. HBO’s Watchmen has proven to be a masterwork right out of the gate, while Netflix is constantly dropping new programming, and often really hitting the mark with the likes of the head-trippy Russian Doll or the consistently great The Crown. Star Wars has a TV show now too! And Amazon is no slouch either with the likes of The Boys. And the best part is, all of these shows will be getting new seasons before you know it…

Best Comic Book Award Categories for 2019

This was a momentous year in comics as epic runs on Batman and Thor came to an end, enthralling sagas continued in The Immortal Hulk and DIE, and new voices were added to the mix with The Magnificent Ms. Marvel and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It was an especially notable year for bold projects like Spider-Man: Life Story and DCeased that caught us off guard with emotionally powerful stories. One need only look at the stellar artwork published in 2019 to see that we are being spoiled with some of the finest talents to ever grace the medium, which made deciding on this year’s nominations quite the daunting task. But having too many outstanding comics to choose from is a problem we’re happy to have.

Best Anime Award Categories for 2019

Each year we see long-awaited series return, are surprised by cool new anime, and more than ever, are able to see new anime movies in theaters. 2019 was especially good to returning anime series and movies; we finally learned what’s in Eren’s basement and Broly’s backstory got revamped. IGN’s anime awards are a celebration of those moments and other storytelling and animation accomplishments.
