Interference Movie Awards--NOMINATIONS OPEN!!

(Mods, please STICKY this)

It's that time of year again.

We're going to have a fairly long nomination process, with the final ballot done in polls the week before the Academy Awards telecast on Feb 22. So there's enough time to catch up on what you may have missed.

Please PM me with your Top 5 choices in each of the following categories:

BEST PICTURE
BEST DIRECTOR
BEST LEAD ACTOR
BEST LEAD ACTRESS
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
BEST FOREIGN (NON-ENGLISH) FILM


* Your choices will be weighed in reverse numerical order, so five points for your #1 choice, four points for #2, etc. In the event that you don't have enough in any categories, the point allotment will be diminished (e.g. If you only have four actors listed, your #1 will only get four points). The Top 5 point-getters in each category will be on the final ballot, with a point tie broken by number of total mentions.


* Here is a link to official 2008 releases to refresh your memory:

Category:2008 films - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


* And the earlier thread that has some For Your Consideration suggestions and discussion about the poll:

Is this an Oscar pool or do we pick our personal favorites even if they haven't been nominated?

The latter.

Just sent mine in, Laz.

Yeah, it's anything goes. I know some people in other countries get stuff early or later than the U.S., so whatever floats your boat, and feel free to use that Wiki page for reference.

Just keep in mind that if you go too obscure or unpopular, your choice may not get enough votes to make the final ballot.

I'm waiting to see Waltz With Bashir this weekend. After that I'll write-up my ballot.

I think you'd have been better off either using the actual Oscar noms or just coming up with some yourselves because let's get real - how many people here are going to come up with 5 foreign films to nominate? First of all, most people aren't huge movie buffs, and second, a lot of people don't live in places where indie theatres are easily accessible.

It's been done for the last couple of years, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, we didn't have an overwhelming response last year but this is rather sad.

Maybe we need to post something in the movie review and movie talk threads?

Did I make it too complicated? I was trying to SIMPLIFY things.

I was going to wait to see another film or two, but I doubt it will matter too much. At least for just the nominations ballots. I'll write mine up today.

Laz, if you don't get enough submissions in a few days, you want to just do personal ballots and round-ups right here and discuss?

I think we need to spread the word more. Maybe my explanation of the point system made it seem too complicated.

A simple post in the other threads asking people to just rank the categories may help.

We could also start PMing specific people asking them to contribute, and to forward that request to one other person to participate.
