And the Blackberry goes to…
In honour of the screen that bankers spend more time watching than any other, Euromoney has created the Blackberries. Here are this year's nominations.
February is awards season for the movie industry. Writer strikes permitting, Hollywood turns up the glamour and the glitz for the annual Academy Awards presentation.
Alternative awards ceremonies have also sprung up. While the Oscars recognize the best in film, the Razzies give prizes to the worst films and performers of the year.
The past year has been like one great thriller, horror story and comedy rolled into one for the global banking industry. So Euromoney decided to put finance and film together and, in honour of the screen that bankers spend more time watching than any other, has created the Blackberries.
