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 soon, perhaps within a week, 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 2018?

This will be our fourth year with "Most Disappointing Film." Remember, it's not Worst Film. What were you genuinely disappointed by in 2018? What was supposed to be good or great but just wasn't? What broke your heart?

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

He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Most Disappointing Film - The Incredables 2, The Old Man and the Gun


Bold.

It's not an epic. It's not even a zeitgeisty (and his best yet) A Ghost Story. But to say you're disappointed? For shame.

Additional Best TV show: Picnic At Hanging Rock
