What's it look more like to you?  And as far as the number of people voting for it goes, well, that can't be helped, but I sure would like everyone who was thinking of maybe voting for it to be maybe to be able to vote for it.

dont be so sensitive buddy, I'm fine if you want to vote for it... what i said is that in IMDb the year always shows next to the title (regardless of the release dates) and that one says 2006. I'm not sure what is our criteria here, if we base our schedule on US release dates, or first release date, or whatever our admins decide.

If a non-film festival USA release date falls in 2007, then it is eligible. So in the case of Exiled, the NYC, NY release is fine.

The Lives Of Others is also eligible, since the USA release date was in Feb. 2007.


Here's my guess, based on past awards (someone please correct if I'm way off):

Atonement - Knightley, McAvoy, and Ronan leading, everyone else supporting.
Zodiac - Gyllenhall, Ruffalo, Downey Jr leading, everyone else supporting.
Amy Ryan, Tom Wilkinson, and Javier Bardem would all be leading, but Michael Cera would be supporting.  I would say for Juno, the only leading performance would be Ellen Page; everyone else in the movie would fall under supporting.

I'll agree with these, although a case could be made for Amy Ryan being supporting.  :yabbse-undecided:

Marie-Josée Croze in Diving Bell - supporting or not?
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?

Due to the popularity of There Will Be Blood, we will have a runner-up designation for certain awards.

Syndromes and a Century isn't on the official Academy list, but i think it got released in april of 2007.  Will you guys count votes for that film?  Don't care if it has no chance of winning, just want to be sure that my favorite film from last year is at least eligible.

I would say each of the actors playing Dylan count as leading.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

If I want to vote for the Blade Runner 5-Disc Blu-Ray set, how do I specify that on the nomination? Are we to specify disc quantity and format (Standard, Blu-Ray or HD)?

Just double-checking that the songs from Once do qualify as Original Music.
