The Cosmique Movie Awards

2002 Cosmo Awards
Spring of 2003


Best Historical Film of 2002


Awarded to the 2002 film deemed by Cosmo voters to have the been the best in historical films genre. Voters will need to decide for themselves how expansive or narrow they wish to define this category. It clearly includes the film representation of a specific historic event, including the portrayal of historic people, even if some liberties are taken with historical accuracy for plot reasons. But for some voters, it may also include fictional characters set against the backdrop of a historical event (such as "Gone With the Wind"). It might also include historical figures set in a completely fictional setting (such as last year's winner, "Gosford Park," which included the appearance of the historic actor Ivor Novello). And finally, for some voters it could include completely fictional characters involved in completely fictional events, so long as those characters are set in a recognizable historic setting where the setting plays an important role in the film.
