Title: 2018 Xixax Awards - Nominate!
Post by: Jeremy Blackman on December 29, 2017, 06:09:28 PM
The Basics

We're continuing with our simplified process:


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 (http://xixax.com/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=21) 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

For movies released in 2017, consult this list (http://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/90th_reminder_list.pdf)! (That should be mostly accurate, but we can stray when necessary.)

The Oscar-nominated screenplays are online as PDFs (https://theplaylist.net/download-oscar-nominated-screenplays-20180130/)

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.
Title: Re: 2018 Xixax Awards
Post by: eward on January 30, 2018, 06:16:25 PM
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?
Title: Re: 2018 Xixax Awards

For The Master they released the script that had leaked. I only see trolling...

Additional nominee for Best TV Performance: Tatiana Maslany in Black Orphan. She plays 4+ characters per episode and is amazing.
