Best animated feature wasn't a category until 2001, but there were some good ones in 1999.

We can do best animated feature if you want.

I've never seen American Beauty, so don't know if it deserved all the awards it won over the others I did see.

Rest easy, it didn't.

LIES!!! LIES AND SLANDER!

In fact, one of the reasons I picked 1999 was because of the BULLSHIT decision to give best actress to Hilary Swank instead of Annette Bening.

I also think this should have a dumber name like The Riffies

That is the name...just spelled differently

Is there an official rule (from the Academy, I mean) as to what constitutes a supporting or a leading role?


It seems like it's pretty much up to your discretion based on what I've seen and read

Yeah, I agree, but that could cause split votes depending on how we collate the nominations?

Unless we get double digits submitting I think building a list of nominations will be almost impossible

I'm not so sure.

If just the people posting so far all provide lists, short of all of them being unique, we should come up with a list. We might have to let more than five go through to the final round though.

One movie gets five noms
One gets four
Four get three

Maybe we have six movies to vote on?

Ok, lets figure out a cutoff date, combine all the lists we have at that point, and then make a decision about where to go next.

Actually, it's down to five, everything after Bringing Out the Dead (IE the honorable mentions and I should have seen it), are just shout outs.

Five would be better unless we are weighting the nominations by position (ie, the first one is worth ten votes, the second worth nine etc)
FINE

So just to be clear, these five nominations for now are based on everyone's list of actual nominees (and only five allowed on their list), with these four so far being the most mentioned, and still one slot free, right?

Depending on how many people jump on board, I guess some of those might get knocked out yet.

I haven't posted my list - I thought we were meant to post for ALL categories in phase one?

I think we might want to just stick with Best Picture for now. Keep things simple while we work out the kinks, then add in more categories when we come back for another year.

Yeah, one category at a time.  I say leave things open so Ed can get in there and maybe we'll have a fifth nominee.
