Your complete Oscar(TM) Ballot - PLEASE read before voting Can't Post

Inspired by friend Patty, here is the whole Oscar Ballot. Vote for who you think SHOULD win, this is not for predictions.

This could get (alread is) confusing, so watch closely.

You can vote for multiple selections, so ALL the categories are in one poll, marked with the category in caps.


For example:

Vote for one of the following two

BEST PICTURE: Babel

BEST PICTURE: The Departed

And now vote again for one of the following two

DIRECTOR: Clint Eastwood

DIRECTOR: Stephen Frears

So please vote for one of each category or don't vote for a category that you don't wish to vote for. Clear as mud? If you haven't seen any of the ANIMATED SHORT films (for example), you can either not vote, OR pretend you are a member of the Academy and vote anyway despite not seeing some or any of the entries. It is tradition after all! (According to many tales over the years). Sorry for any typos, sorry for an omissions (but I think I got them all), sorry for being sorry and for anything else I forgot.

Moderators, I will gladly scap this entirely if a better method exists.

Uhhh you missed the option [In reply to] Can't Post

to vote 'I have seen NONE of the main films nominated'

Nor any of the others come to think about it.

Really I've not. Been a great year for movies though, from the ones I have seen :p

The Academy rules are somewhat complex [In reply to] Can't Post

for films that were first shown outside the US, so it's possible that Pan's Labrynth isn't eligible except as a Foreign Film. I wish it had been nominated - it would have been interesting!

More like 27 [In reply to] Can't Post

Each person votes MANY times. Once for 'best picture' once for 'best director' and so on. There are not so many voters at all. IT seems 27 people voted for 'best picture' by the deadline which is the category I suspect MOST likely to have the most voters. Probably a lot of people didn't vote for "best documentary short" for example.

Good ol' me! [In reply to] Can't Post

Alright, Xo posted it, but I begged him first! Evil

I didn't think he would get it posted on Sunday but he is, as always, completely on top of it. Shall I bother to post the winners or can everybody just read it for themselves? I saved the winners as of noon Sunday, just in case anybody cares.

I rarely ventured off 'Main' on the old boards, sometimes to 'Reading Room' and here and there but now, I find my interest is much spread out. I hope more folks catch on to the possibilities of places like "Pollantier" and collecting and gaming and so forth and so on.
