MMA has honored some of the industry's best, including Robert Redford, Virginia Madsen, Justin Timberlake, Alison Pill, Snoop Dogg, Thom Yorke, director Pierre Coffin, cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, production designer Geoffrey Kirkland, composer Philip Glass, stunt legend Zoe Bell, and SFX makeup visionaries K.N.B. Effects Group. The result is industry recognition alongside well-known contemporaries. MovieMaker Magazine raves, "If you are wondering if you should submit, the answer is: YES!"
With 42 Maverick Awards-and up to 14 nominees in 21 categories-MMA is proud to be a platform on which a diverse range of talents can shine. All facets of form, function, style, and craft are afforded a level playing field at MMA, in a forum that honors Best Picture and Best Director alongside frequently overlooked disciplines including stunts, special effects makeup, and original music.
