I feel like we just collectively gave the finger to The King's Speech.

I totally forgot to put Enter The Void on the list of films I was working with. It was supposed to top three categories, too... sonofabitch.

Awesome job, Pedro. As expected. You're the man and I owe money to your PayPal for a Mountain Dew.

ugh Exit Through the Giftshop. Scott Pilgrim would've even been more deserving.

I, too, would like to express my thanks to Pedro. This is definitely a cool contest, and we all owe him a Coke for putting it together.

So, when do we do the final ballots? I'm anxious to make the picks that should win, but won't.

You sent me Sweet and Lowdown a while back, let's call it even. :lol:

Send them to me Oscar night. Everyone'll be on the forums anyway, right?

Booooooooooo The Girlfriend Experience didn't get enough love!

Many thanks Pedro. You're the best moderator since Trevor and Patrick. Oh wait that's a horrible insult.

First: another big "thank you" to Pedro. I genuinely appreciate the effort you've put into this again.

6 Nominations doesn't feel like giving it the finger. I think we've corrected the excess love given by the Academy. Of course, I haven't even seen this yet.

I know that was all in jest James, but I still liked the inclusion of The Girlfriend Experience last year even if I didn't nominate it.

I know you're joking about the moderators too but I'll briefly add that while Trevor was here he was the most active moderator in terms of keeping things on topic, merging threads etc. Those decisions weren't always popular but they needed to be made. Also, when I'd complain publicly he was nice enough to PM me explaining the theory behind his decisions.

Of course, I'll always remember the effort Pat put into repairing the defaced Great Movies section. That had to be gruelling, but he did it quietly and efficiently.

****

Now, we all like to complain about the Oscar Nominees so I'm sure no-one will mind if I complain about our nominees.

For folks who bitch about the Oscar choices, we've sure gone and come up with a bunch of nominees that look pretty darn similar!

Sweet. Both made my shortlist and were late scratches but I'm still glad that you've recognised them. Certainly deserved.

My #1 choice for actor was Mads Mikkelsen (Valhalla Rising) but I'm not too crushed since many folks didn't see that one. However, no Pierce Brosnan (The Ghost Writer)? I thought he was the best thing in that film! Doubly surprising since The Ghost Writer did better than I thought it would.

Had both Tilda Swinton (I Am Love) and Rebecca Hall (Please Give) among my Best Actress nominees but I suppose those movies weren't the most widely seen.

Closest I've ever felt to being impotent. I didn't nominate even one of these lovely ladies. My ballot looked something like this:

Best Actress in a Supporting Role

1. Greta Gerwig (Greenberg)
2. Mia Wasikowska (The Kids Are All Right)
3. Catherine Keener (Please Give)
4. Mary Tsoni (Dogtooth)
5. Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom)

Poor Greta :cry:

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Biutiful


Say what? Who saw this? I'm not doubting anyone, it's just that I've still to hear a single opinion about this on Reelviews and I'm really looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say about it. Some critics really seemed to hate it so I'm wondering if it's actually a dud.

You know what disappointed me the most? No Best Music for TRON: Legacy??? Seriously? I wasn't the only one on these boards to complain about the Academy omitting it, so some guys either forgot about it or just didn't submit a ballot. It deserves a nomination for Art Direction too, but snubbing its soundtrack is a fucking sin.

I had hoped for some love for Four Lions (Postman? MunichMan?) and the exquisite Costume Design/Cinematography of I Am Love (Ebert Presents had a great clip on the impact of I Am Love's costume decisions in establishing rapport between characters) but I can deal with that.

But the TRON soundtrack? Damn, guys.

One thing I'm proud of is that the mediocre, overrated Kids Are Alright was left behind.

Yeah thanks, Pedro. Must've been a lot of work.

How can Enter the Void make the list of Best Picture nominations, but Gaspar Noé not be nominated for Best Director? Instead, the chief animator from Toy bloody Story 3?!?

Post Re: The Second Annual ReelViews Academy Awards Nominations
Black Swan ?? 14 nominations ?? A visual effects nomination ?? TWO sound nominations ?

I guess we had no love for Shutter Island either .. A shame ..


on another note it seems that were a good bit of votes as my #1 choices for best picture and director didn't make the cut in either categories .

It would appear so - if I understand Ed correctly, he (like me) also had Pierce Brosnan as his number one choice for Best Supporting Actor and he didn't make the cut.

How many people submitted nominations lists, Pedro?

How are we supposed to vote for the award winners? By PM again?

I contributed to both of Black Swan's sound nominations because the sound really impressed me during the theatrical viewing. Embarrassingly, the surround sound even caught me off guard once. At one point in the film someone knocks on a door and it played through one of the rear speakers only. I was sitting close to the rear exit and actually turned around to see what idiot was knocking on the door. Then I realised it was the movie's sound :oops:

Pedro changed the points system this year a little so that a single #1 nomination won't have as much influence. Not sure exactly what that entailed but I had at least 3 #1 choices that weren't nominated at all.

Sorry, I must have phrased that wrongly. I did nominate Brosnan but only had him in 4th place. Still, given the love shown for The Ghost Writer I would have assumed that he'd get a nomination. He gave the best performance in that film, after all.

I'm pretty sure we have to PM Pedro, but I would like to know what format we're voting in. Do we choose a winner-only in each category or sort 1-5 according to preference?

The number one rule change was for the Best Picture category.

Pierce Brosnan was very close to a nomination.

Ed, I'd like to try a 1-5 weighing if that pleases the assembly.

Shutter Island was close to receiving a few technical categories, I think in art direction and cinematography, maybe one or two of the sound categories, too.

I guess no one else had Ben Kingsley for Best Supporting...

Major has sent me his final votes due to his impending absence. He used the ranking system while putting XX to the films he did not see. This is how I would prefer it.

Just another thank you and thumbs up to The Pedro.

Get those votes in snatch faces...

I'm not sure I understand this. Does this mean we're not just voting on one film per category? That we're voting on multiple films, ordered by weight?
