Fantastic Fest 2014: Awards Go To IT FOLLOWS, THE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYA, ALLELUIA, And More
Not to wax too nostalgic, but the awards show for Fantastic Fest 2014 is quite a bit different from the first one I attended back in 2006 for the festival's second edition. 

For one thing, it's much more elaborate. For another, there are many more awards. For yet another, it's no longer held in a bar down the street on the last night of the festival, mixed in along with other bar patrons. Nowadays, it's a highly coveted ticket, held on Monday evening, although one thing has remained consistent: the winners are expected to chug a glass of beer. If the winners are not present, someone else is enlisted to drink a beer in their honor. 

For legal reasons, that's probably as much as we can say about that. Here are the winners, via official release from the festival:
