For people who want to see Million Dollar Baby on its Friday wide release, we're extending the nominations deadline to Sunday 9 PM Central.

And we need more votes!

Remember, you can send a partial ballot if you only want to vote for some things. That's perfectly fine!

I won't get to see Sideways or Life Aquatic 'til after this first round, so, uh, whoever thinks those are worthwhile movies, please bang the drum for them so in case I love them I'll get a chance to vote for them in the finals.

Thanks and stuff.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I still have problems. I've seen a lot of the films in question, but even if I were to make even a top 10 list right now, i'd have only around seven films I'd even qualify as worthy for a top ten list. I just don't understand why we have to have this before the academy awards. Maybe if everyone here had the same priveleges of seeing all the films the way academy voters do, then I'd understand. Its just all of us don't and worst, some of us are really restricted. Million Dollar Baby does open wide this friday and for me, that means its distance away is excess of only 4 hours instead of the 6 hours before.

How many ballots in total do you have so far?

Put it this way, it's like a baseball team voted for the All Stars, instead of the fans.

So, when in doubt...it's a leading performance.


The admins will sort if out when we count, but...

WE WANT EVERYONE'S NOMINATIONS!!!


I noticed that my noms didn't follow the rules exactly (concerning lead and supporting).  Are the admins still going to sort this out?  Should I resubmit?

I know it's too late, but is "Touching the Void" cosidered a drama or a documentary?

Documentary. The only problem mixing the lead and supporting is that sometimes it split the vote.

I still think Jeremy Blackman added that French chick to the "leads" in Huckabees because he's fucking in love with that movie.

Don't worry about it. Just do better next time. Every vote will be counted!
