The 2016 Ole Miss Football Oscars, hosted by the Bag Man

The awards ceremony that honors the best in Rebel football film over the past year.

The real Oscars take place on Sunday night, which means you've got a little more than 48 hours to cram in all the movies* you meant to see but never got around to, probably because you just wanted to watch Mad Max: Fury Road for the fifth time due to all the FIRE and EXPLOSIONS and OH THE NOISE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE FOR IT TO BE LOUD ENOUGH. Since the Oscars are upon us, it seemed like a good idea to conduct a ceremony to reward the achievements of those involved in the film of the 2015 Ole Miss football season.

The awards results that you are about to witness were voted on by the Academy of Gray, one of our nation's most prestigious institutions (and always in need of donations). I am completely confident that you will agree with all of these about as much as you would a Hugh Freeze fourth-and-goal play call that does not involve Chad Kelly taking the snap.

*FILMS, you simpleton

So let's get to the ceremony and find out who all will be taking home a trophy.

As per awards ceremony rules, we must start with the "lesser-known" awards and work our way up to the GLORY BOY awards.
