The Hobbit bit is still quite confusing though - so you get away with music being written, rather than lyrics.

I think I only recognise a couple of them, both from the same film.

Song of the Lonely Mountain doesn't feature all that much that isn't unoriginal though, heavily inspired maybe I think there's one line that's direct from the book.

Re shorts - do we have options other than the longlist? I wondered if Paramanjang eg might be eligible?

I thought it was just if it's written specifically for an eligible film then the song would be eligible too.

I have no idea how they decide those things.

Longlist only. One of the things that'll keep this light and easy is if we have to stick to the lists. Otherwise it starts bringing up people having to research films that might be eligible and asking about them, etc. Which kind of puts this in the same territory as all the other lists and sooner rather than later people will get fed up of it. So I have to be a stickler on this one.

Tell you what, ban anyone who uses the word pretentious when they obviously don't understand what the word means and I'll allow films outside the longlist in the specialist categories. Not anyone who uses it, just those who clearly don't know what it means.

Just a quick note, I'm not going to count the lists until deadline day again, so once a list is in then it's in, with no changes. So make sure you have things in the right category, especially when it comes to screenplays. Under Academy rules, any sequel automatically goes in Adapted. Even things that came from t.v. shows first, so The Muppets goes in adapted. Just be sure to check they're in the right category, so Drive or Submarine are in adapted because they're based on novels, 50/50 is in original because even though it's a true story it isn't taken from an existing text, etc.

The External World is a very odd short.

Having gone through 20 odd in the last couple of days, Dimanche (Sunday) is still my For Your Consideration

Double check - Tyrannosaur would be Adapted because of its link to Dog Altogether?

Also - Of Gods and Men says 'adaptation' in IMDB but I wondered if that's just the way they say it when it's an original script with more than one person working on it.

There's no listing of a text for Of Gods and Men, so I think it's just weird wording and it's original. As for Tyrannosaur, I guess it'd have to be, yeah.

Anyone in the US or with a VPN can watch Amigo - John Sayles last film - on Netflix. Criminal lack of distribution on that one.

50/50 was a true story? Wow you mean the guy really had such a annoying best friend?

Just to be clear I take it best film you can nominate ten and the rest its five? Will try and get my list in later.

My animated feature and probably song will be 3. Not sure about a couple of others.

I think I need 10 for supporting male though.

Yep, maximum 10 for picture and 5 for everything else.

Supp Actor - As long as you have Albert Brooks and Patton Oswalt on your list then your ballot will still be counted, otherwise it depends whose ballots I have to drop to make sure they get nominated.

With TTSS, Of Gods and Men, Le Havre etc Best Supporting Actor is a very touch category.
