Category Archives: Poll
My roommate and I have this system wherein every weekend (we started in September) through the end of the year has a notecard and on each notecard we write the movies that are opening (well, the ones we are interested in, anyways). When we see one we initial it, when we’ve both seen the film we cross it out.
I want to know what films y’all are interested in seeing!
Poll after the cut due to how large it is.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards are tonight at 8PM EST / 5PM PST on both TNT and TBS. The Oscar race has done a 180 in the last two weeks with The King’s Speech taking top honors at both the PGA and the DGA. All we’ve got left is to see if it sweeps the SAG awards tonight. After the cut are polls for all the film categories.
The Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Awards are tonight (they air starting at 5PM PST on VH1), so I thought it might be fun to get your thoughts on who you think will win tonight. Black Swan leads the nominees with 12 nominations, followed by The King’s Speech and True Grit with 11 each. After the cut I’ve got polls set up for some of the major categories. You can see all the categories and nominations here. Also, while you’re at it, if you could take a second to vote for Cinema Fanatic at the 2011 Total Movie Blog Awards, I’d be ever so grateful.
This is just for January through June releases. I’ll do another poll in June for July through December releases. Keep in mind a lot of the big summer movies open in July, so that’s why they aren’t on this poll. Personally, the only 2011 release that matters for me is Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life. What about y’all?
Some of these people are dead and will never get themselves a competitive award. A few of them are getting kind of old and time is ticking and a few of them have plenty of time to go, but quite a large number of nominations with no win. Although, with all of these people winning or not winning an Oscar doesn’t really matter. They’re all remarkable in their fields and have had stellar careers. Oscar would really just be a cherry on top.
Unlike yesterday’s post, today I want to know how you think the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is going to vote. Who do you think WILL WIN the awards tonight?
I’ll post my predictions along with what my beloved readers think around 4 of 4:30 tonight, but then I have to hide from the internets because the awards ceremony is tape delayed and I’m on the West Coast and don’t want to get spoiled THE SHOW IS NOT BEING TAPE DELAYED THIS YEAR. It’ll be shown simultaneously in the East Coast and the West Coast. This is wonderful news. I’ll be live-blogging the ceremony over on my tumblr: http://oldfilmsflicker.tumblr.com/ if you’re interested.
Polls after the cut.
With the Golden Globes coming up tomorrow I thought I’d throw out some polls and see what y’all think. Keep in mind what I want to know is what you think deserves to win, not necessarily what you think will win. Feel free to comment and explain your choices!
