We know all Amy Wongs around the world must compete against Amy Wong for attention, so while doing my random google search for tracking my stuff online, I ended up cyber-meeting Amy Wong.

Amy is the owner of Creative Melancholic.

And if I didn’t know I have my own WordPress account, I could have sworn I could be blogging there. Why? Well, because Amy is a designer. And Amy and I blog about some very similar things. She is even blogging about Peruvian director Ricardo de Montreuil (who made Mancora).

And I swear, this is not me talking in the 3rd person.

Voting results are in! Which is exciting… and a bit surprising, I think xD

Among the love, there’s The Hurt Locker, Basterds, District 9, you know… the usual suspects, plus some love for Moon, Antichrist… and surprisingly enough, Watchmen. ;P

Here are the winners…

Behold!

Nominations are done!!

It’s actually kind of exciting, even if not that many people sent nominations. However, it’s actually a really great way to hear about all these many other films that people mentioned so many times, and I knew nothing about.

at Cinencuentro again!

This time around pointing out some experiences while watching those films, which doesn’t necessarily reflect what I consider the best… keyword, necessary.

Sorry, only in Spanish.

check it out here.

Here’s the main idea post.

And yes, I made it passed the 48 films. I’m nearly on my film #70, I think.

Since it’s nearly December here, and it’s December already in several places. It’s time for a reminder because I haven’t heard from many of you, and I promised to remind everyone.

  • You’ve got all this month to watch films to complete your 48 film-count.
  • Your nomination list should be sent by January 7th 2010.
  • Nominations categories are the same as the Academy Awards, except;
    • no Best Foreign Film category.
    • no shorts (documentaries, animated or live-action)
    • no Documentary Features either.
  • Nominations are announced on January 10th 2010
  • Voting for a winner ends on January 28th 2010
  • Winners are announced January 31st 2010.

So grab and Academy Award nomination list, fill in the blanks except for the categories specified above, and send them my way. ;P
