Nominate! – 2017 Xixax Awards

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.

Just a few changes from last year. Best Trailer is gone (no interest). There are brand new, completely revamped acting categories! Should be self-explanatory. "Best Cast" is geared toward ensembles.

We were very happy with the TV categories — those remain intact. 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 2016?

This will be our third year with "Most Disappointing Film." Remember, it's not Worst Film. What were you genuinely disappointed by in 2016? What was supposed to be good or great but just wasn't? This is for the heartbreakers. (For example, Tomorrowland won last year.)

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

Zoe Kazan for Best Female Performance for The Monster.

He suggests, knowing full well no one has seen it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
