Post Re: The Third Annual ReelViews Academy Awards
Sometime in February is all I can promise. I'm waiting for everything to show up in my area. I'll get back to you on that in a bit.

You should post this in another forum, Pedro to promote it a bit better. It's tough to find buried under the "first annual" banner. Just happened by it this year, thought you weren't going to do it.

Always fun though, my picks to come!

I will, though it'll just be a link to this topic.

In the meantime: February 21st/February 22nd is your deadline. I want to get to work by 10:00 AM Thursday morning.

Question: how will the one-actor-two-movies thing work? For example, if I want to nominate Seth Rogen as supporting actor for 50/50 and Paul, do I list him once with both movies or does he take up two spots among my 5 nominees?

This site is helpful for remembering which movies came out in 2011.

http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/index2011.php

A lot of movies get listed as coming out on December 31 which really don't come out till the next year, so you may want to check http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/index2010.php as well.

I consider Bérénice Bejo a lead in The Artist, too. She's splitting the categories in the various awards. Shailene Woodley in The Descendants is close to being a lead as well, but everyone seems to be putting her in supporting so I will, too. The Help, on the other hand, has two actresses in leading roles.

Which two? If it's Octavia and Viola, I don't quite agree. If it's Emma and Viola, I'm closer to agreeing. You could argue that's all three or just Emma, too.

The central connection in The Help, if you ask me, is between Skeeter and Aibileen. Skeeter's connection with Minny is somewhat secondary, as is Minny's connection with Celia. This why I feel Emma and Viola are the leads and Octavia and Jessica are supporting.

But the main, main, main character is Skeeter and that's part of why I don't like The Help. She's not memorable in the least, but the story revolves around her and her book.

In conclusion, let's keep Emma and Viola in the lead category.

He takes up two spots.

I was referring to Emma Stone and Viola Davis as leads in The Help. Everyone else is supporting, including all the male characters.

I would think that in cases like that, whichever actors (one male, one female) have the most screen time would be considered the leads, though the Academy has departed from this definition a few times.

In the case of The Help, none of the male characters really have enough importance to be considered a lead. Even the love interest for Emma Stone is less important to the movie than Octavia Spenser and Jessica Chastain, who are both supporting.

I'm only speaking technically. I don't mean to say that any of them fills the function of the lead in the story, just that if the Academy needs to pick one, they'll have to default to some kind of definitional criteria.

Pedro, are we doing two votes again this year? That is, we create nominees first and then select winners a few weeks later?

Maybe. Probably.

*groans in self-pity*

I'll participate in order to honor the "goodest forum on earth" (David Bordwell) but I wonder how I'll manage to catch up on the 20-30 films I need to see in order to make my ballot both timely and respectable. I should have learned to tesser like I promised myself I would in third grade. And then again in 7th. And last year.

Instead of mastering the manipulation of space-time, do what I'm doing and base your decisions on the tiny number of 2011 films you've seen, and fuck 'em if they don't like it. Then master space-time once that's out of the way.

So uh... I meant February 22nd/February 23rd. My bad.

I can't add 14+7 apparently...

There are still a few movies I need to see. Melancholia, The Artist, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Hugo among a few others. But if by the 21st I still haven't seen them then I'll just send my current picks.

Damnit man...this shit is hard. I'm fucking terrible at decisions. And I'm not liking my nominations considering how highly you guys spoke of movies I hadn't seen...but whatever. I'll keep going with this thing. It'll be on its way tonight Pedro...

I am excited for this. Physically.

I wasn't too terribly pleased with mine, either. There was just so much I hadn't seen that a lot of people around here loved (Certified Copy, Melancholia, Take Shelter, etc.), that I felt like my nominations weren't up to par. Oh well. I guess everyone has stuff they haven't seen so it should all even out in the end, right?

I'm still pretty damn excited to see the nominees.
