2018 Xixax Awards - Nominate!

The Basics

We're continuing with our simplified process:

  • In this thread, members suggest nominations in whatever fashion they choose.
  • Admins & mods will decide final nominees in an authoritarian yet benevolent fashion, largely drawing on this thread.
  • We'll post polls for each category, and that will be the final vote.

Let's get started! We'd like to get public nominations done in just a week or two, so don't delay!

Post your nominations here, in any format or quantity you'd like. Doesn't matter. You don't even need to read the rest of this post. Make several posts if you want; post what you can think of now, and come back for more later.


Further Guidance (optional to read)

Is there an underrated film you're especially passionate about, or an incredible performance that no one is discussing? We're especially interested in those unusual choices to fill out categories. If you'd rather keep it private, you can PM me nominations.

TV categories are the same as the last two years. If you need to review how they work:

Quote
Our one-hour/half-hour division is meant to roughly divide dramas from comedies. (Longer shows can go in one-hour.) For "Best TV Performance," simply nominate an actor in a thing (not a specific scene or episode). For Best TV Episode, we do want to get more specific. If you're not sure if a TV show is eligible, ask here; but we're going by common sense rules, i.e. did it mostly air in 2017?

This will be our third year with "Most Disappointing Film." Remember, it's not Worst Film. What were you genuinely disappointed by in 2017? What was supposed to be good or great but just wasn't? This is for the heartbreakers.

Here are the categories. Suggest nominations for whatever you want — one, two, or all of them.


Best Film
Best Director

Best Female Performance
Best Male Performance
Best Cast
Best Minor Role Performance

Best Screenplay
Best Cinematography
Best Original Music
Best Debut Film
Best Documentary
Best Film Poster
Most Disappointing Film
Best Film of 2016 - Redux

Best One-Hour TV Show
Best Half-Hour TV Show
Best TV Performance
Best TV Episode



For movies released in 2017, consult this list! (That should be mostly accurate, but we can stray when necessary.)

I've often wondered if these are actual shooting scripts--or something special put together after the release of the film.  Something more polished and that matches the finished product more closely.

[edit]  And not a Phantom Thread among them.

PT mentioned something in one of the interviews that the final Phantom Thread shooting script was around 110 pages or so, and the printed for-your-consideration version is only 82 (frogs), so yeah it makes me wonder.

I have a copy of the 82-page For Your Consideration draft - it definitely reads like a PTA shooting script (grammatical madness and typos galore) and there are a few additional moments/quirky delights not in the final cut.... The draft they released for The Master was a quite early version... How much input does PTA have in this department?

Best Film


Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

Is everyone catching up? Pretty much everything should be on VOD now.

Personally I need to see I, Tonya and Ladybird, then I'll have a mostly complete list.
