    Yes, it's that time of the year again, which means...

    Nominations are open for this year's Film Awards https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=480

    This is the second year of our trimmed down categories, so no waiting - all nominations threads are up now! As usual, we welcome any feedback or suggestions.

    As noted in the nomination threads, eligible films must have been released in Irish cinemas between April 2018 and March 2019, which means most of the Oscar nominees are eligible. If anyone has any questions about eligibility, ask here.

    If I get around to it I might put up a shortlist of significant films in the major categories to help remind people.

    Anyway, enjoy and thanks for participating! :)

    A far from definitive list of films released between April of last year and March of this year.

    Probably saw fewer new films in the past year than previous years, which my nominations definitely reflect. I must try to get to the cinema a bit more this year.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 22,525 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Sad Professor


    Should we allow some overlap with films released in March of last year? Though technically eligible then, they might have featured more strongly in the nominations had they been released earlier. Some of them came out March 30th just as we closed nominations.

    Red Sparrow
    Fantastic Woman
    Wonder Wheel
    You Were Never Really Here
    Mary Magdalene
    The Square
    Tomb Raider
    A Wrinkle in Time
    Pacific Rim Uprising
    Unsane
    Ready Player One
    Isle of Dogs
    Journeyman


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 28,643 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Seems fair, given when these awards pop up, that the overlapping films get a shot.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,960 ✭✭✭✭ dark crystal


    I definitely think it's missing the Best supporting Actor/Actress categories. Would be nice to see those return imo.

    Though looking at that list I realise I've seen far fewer movies than I thought I did over the last 12 months :(


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 28,643 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Also, what defines as 'indie' in this case? Is it related to the studio who released it, or whether it got general release?


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 22,525 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Sad Professor


    It's an imperfect category with a lot of grey areas and exceptions to the rule, but I would define "indie" as not made by one of the big studios, low budget (20ish mill and below), having a limited release, and spending a fair bit of time on the festival circuit. Style is also a potentially big factor.

    Bump for the mid-week crew - please do throw your nominations in, because only then do you have the right to complain that your own choice didn't make the cut :P

    No "Worst Film" category?
    I had 4 nominations for "The Predator" ready


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,403 CMod ✭✭✭✭ johnny_ultimate


    Final push: will close the threads tomorrow evening so please do nominate if you haven't already!

    Thanks to everybody for nominating... now’s the time to vote!

    Major thanks as ever to Mr E for putting together the survey. It’ll stay open until mid next week so make sure to get your votes in.

    Voted! I do wonder if sticky threads get a little lost, considering (IIRC) on the new mobile site they're' hidden by default.

    We did less bumping of the thread prior to making it a sticky this year, so maybe that contributed to it. I've raised the issue of the responsive site hiding sticky threads in the past but have given up trying to cater to multiple versions of the site, especially half-baked/abandoned ones. I just assume any regulars use the legacy/touch sites.

    Participation in the awards has being falling for several years now though. I forgot to nominate in several categories myself which didn't help matters.

    Spider-verse deserves more than just a puny Oscar?


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 28,643 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Mission Impossible: Fallout didn't win a single gong? That's oddly disappointing.

    I blame Marvel fans.

    I blame Marvel fans.
    As do I!

    I have complete Avengers ennui at this point, and thought MI: Fallout was the best popcorn blockbuster in years.
