If it's any consolation, I'll be moving Boonmee to first slot on every ballot anyway.

Not really. I loved Boonmee, itís one of those I put off forever and now I think it was a twattish move on my part. Confessions was a fantastic experience 18 months ago and both Even the Rain and Gods finished in my Top 100 last year. I think a marathon rewatch is in order.

Unpopular Opinion Alert
Also Iím not sure if Iím being deliberately perverse ignoring (well at the moment) The Kingís Stutter Oh How Embarrassing but not really when his brother shagged Hitler* and Ballet Lesbians but they really are coming across as beige compared to numerous films on the eligible list.

You know what the lesson is here? If I tell you a film is amazing, then I'm always right.

I think I maybe considered ballet lesbians for editing. That's about it.

I'd expect Four Lions to see a few noms though

Four Lions is pretty high on a couple of my lists - although I've gone for Nigel Lindsay in support.

I'm going to offer an experiment. Does anyone want to try voting outside of the eligibility list for next year? Eligibility list as the main guide, but anything with an imdb year of 2010 would be eligible, unless it appeared on the Oscar eligibility list for 2011/2012. That way people wouldn't have to feel pressured into researching what films were possible outside of the guideline list, but they can if they want to. I'd also then be willing to expand eligibility for the foreign list to any non American films made in that year.

What do you all say?


Sorry if this has already been decided upon, I couldn't be arsed trailing through all the posts since.

I'd say keep it within the Academy eligibility lists, with the exceptions being the documentary & foreign language categories - for the reasons you've pretty much articulated previously.

Not to give away potential people on my ballot or anything () but:
Mila Kunis - Black Swan
Amy Adams- The Fighter
Olivia Williams - The Ghost
Chloe Moretz - Kick-Ass
Whitney Able - Monsters
spring to mind.

While I'm here:
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION:
SHUTTER ISLAND: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Jackie Earle Haley), Best Adapted Screenplay
BURIED: Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor
MONSTERS: Best Original Screenplay, Best Visual Effects

Also, I wish The Hole was eligible .

Also also, I want to give Submarine a watch, then I'll get my votes in.

Jacki Weaver, Lesley Manville, Julianne Moore, Barbara Hershey, Rooney Mara all had performances worth looking at it.

Can I only vote for Best Picture, Animated Feature, and Foreign Language?

EDIT: Never mind, I didn't read the first post very clearly.

I think rawls is offline for a few days.

To be honest, I think just send 'em when you're ready, or maybe after Sunday when the winners go up.

Cool cool.

Ok, I'm calling time on this as the last two nominators (Rebel and Brooksy) have sent their votes. I'll get the results thread up in a little while.

Actually its between Ahmed and Penn (Fair Game) for my fifth best actor nomination. Not always a Penn fan, but thought he was excellent in that film.
