Ok, so we need five short-term members for the next round. If you're interested could you email us the name of the film you'd like to nominate to hofnominations@gmail.com, by the 22nd of September, the deadline for the first round of the current HoF. For the current long-termers, it's the last round for Imp', Paul and Gimli, Hubu still has three rounds left.

I'm putting my name forward for this one, but I've done two in a row so far, so I can't complain if you choose me over someone else.

It's all done by random draw anyway rather than actively picking people. But if anyone does miss out on the next round, we have 8 spots opening up for the following round, three of them long-term slots.

Rebel, do you want us to roll over your nom from last time?

Btw, if people want to go for the big guns again next round, feel free.

I'm wondering if Gimli will pull something even stinkier than Van Helsing out of the bag for his/her last nomination.

Go out in a blaze of glory and all that.

I like to offer variety. Tunes of Glory was well received and all those with good taste liked The Music Box. I felt it was time for a hated blockbuster

Nah, since it's up for the Eurovision at the moment I'll change it to something else.

EDIT-Sent a nom to the email.

I've sent one this time. Well, two, with a coin toss to come if that's OK

Andy Warhol really was a pretentious ballbag at times, wasn't he?

Anyways, I've decided to swap my nom for another.

Interesting, considering what your new nomination is. I think pretentious is a terrible form of criticism, but if any film deserves it...

You sure you don't want to switch back to your brilliant first choice?

Elab, no probs deciding closer to the time between the two of them

Gimli, it would be a better choice than Van Helsing.

Actually, yeah I'll go back to my first choice.

My second choice was a total whore move, but I'm going to take the moral high ground over all you bitches.

It's a very divisive film though, your second choice I mean. Your first one is more of a whore film. Although there's nothing wrong with whoring, we make fun of it a lot, but winning is part of the point. And it is nice to see a line-up like the one we currently have, a mix of a few films that could easily win it and a few more obscure titles.

Hubu has pmed to say he's not going to be able to carry on as a long-term member, so there'll actually be six slots in the next round, one of them as a long-termer. If you're interested, let us know, the only requirement is that you've completed at least one round as a short-termer.

I'll put my name in the hat for this one, though I can't believe my choice hasn't been nominated before now (or, if it was, I can't find it.)

Fucking hell! You weren't joking about expensive. What we might need to do is ask you for a backup nom, just in case the Youtube links go down by the time the next round starts.

I did warn you.

Yeah, I thought that might be a sensible back-up plan. I've got a few that I'm thinking about it, so if the links are gone by the time we need to start I'll pick then if that's OK.
