Possibly my Best Award Season Ballot~

January 28, 2019 — 1 Comment

I’m ready to vote! I received the most digital screeners this year so far, so it’s been easier (and it’s made it lazy-proof) to sit through dozens of screeners. Plus, Netflix has a lot of the nominated movies readily available too. This year is possibly my best award season ballot in my history of keeping up with ballots. lol

It’s not only my Spirit Awards ballot~

I also have a pretty complete Oscar ballot. lol

This is the first time I’ve seen more than half the nominees in the Documentary Feature category, LOL. And for the first time EVER, animated shorts were made available before nominations were announced. Spoiler: I’m surprised Pépé Le Morse [Vimeo] didn’t make the cut because it was one of my Top5. I’m rooting for Late Afternoon and One Small Step [Vimeo].

Overall, you’d know I’m so-so with [American] movies this year. And I think it reflects in the fact that out of the five Directing nominees, three are for foreign directors -mostly- doing foreign films. Also, someone explain to me how Slumdog Millionaire managed a SAG Award nomination for Best Ensemble, but no one bothered to do that for Koreeda’s Shoplifters? Salty, that’s what I am.

Anyway, I’m rooting for BlacKkKlansman, but wouldn’t be surprised if Green Book wins. Welcome surprise would be The Favourite. But just to not seem so cynical, my favorite movie was Christopher Robin. LOL, so I’m rooting for it in Visual Effects xD
