If everyone's gonna bitch and moan about the outcome of our own awards then why even have them?  Why doesn't everyone just have their own fucking awards, that way everyone's ideas and opinions are met.  These awards resemble the popular vote on this site, most people here love PDL so, not surprisingly, it wins the most awards.  So?  It was a great movie and worthy of recognition.  Is it worthy of every award it got?  Who knows, it's just opinions anyway.  Not everyone will agree with every single win, it never happens.  We bitch about the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes and eveything else and then we bitch when we have our own chance to honor the movies we deemed worthy of winning that might have been overlooked by the 'system'.  I think we just like to bitch.

I thought the whole point of internest message boards was to bitch and moan?! What next, no Santa!

I just look at the Xixax Awards as great message board fodder--an excellent excuse to create diatribe.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Maybe so, I don't know.  I guess I just felt like bitching a little bit too.  I'm over it now and I feel better already.

It just struck me as ironic how most of us would say the Oscars are shit and then we have our own thing and we think it's shit too.

Oh, by all means. You created the thread... feel free to bitch away. I wasn't trying to stifle it.

In fact, I'm probably still employed thanks to internet message boards. They allow me to unload all my surplus sarcasm so the hardcore stuff isn't directed towards a client or sales rep while on the job.

I haven't been bitching about PDL rocking on at the awards...I was one of the contributors after all, I probably voted for it in every category it was nominated for. I guess it was sort of boring and I think it will be every year PTA releases a film. Don't get me wrong, I praise god for PDL and PTA...many people including myself really do feel PDL was the best film of the year and a miracle in many ways...it fucking was. I just think that PTA will dominate because he truly is the best, not because people like him for no reason.

Next year's awards should be a lot more fun and unpreditable...unless PTA decides to release a film of course.

Which would be awesome!

The internet was designed from the ground up for people to bitch about movies and share pornography.  Or something to that effect.

Complaining is fine. As years go on, fanboy smuttiness will start to disappear and we will see a difference in winners more. For these awards, I would choose like Cannes, where you try to spread the awards out more to honor all good films. But complaining is fine and I may be wrong, but i have yet to hear anyone call the Xixax awards as bad as the oscars and everyone here secretly pays attention to everything that award show says, if agreeing with it or not.

I was wondering if anyone would recognize it.  Glad to see there's someone with a little Raffi background among us.

What if people really exist who truly believe that PDL is just that good?

How would that fit your definition?

They do exist. The coincidence is that many of them happen to congregate at a place that held an awards competition. Thus our results.

It's like TV or radio ratings. If you get a sample that's not representative of the true "general public" then you get skewed results.

I like the fact that our community is a tad atypical. It gives it character. But we should have expected that this would happen. It's not like upset was really an upset.

I think most people did find PDL the best movie of the year, but when you got into more minor categories, (sound, editing) you got people mainly voting off fav film instead of what deserved to win. PDL still can be best movie of the year and not win those. I use to be the biggest defender of PDL as best movie of the year, but Spirited Away grows even more on me with every viewing (seen it 4 times so far), so I don't know.

I don't think that's a very good clarification. If you voted for PDL, you're honest, but if you also voted it in for best sound and editing (which I think it deserved, by the way), you're "fanboy smut"? And for someone who didn't vote, you seem to have a lot of complaints about the results.

Do you assume that the PDL voters were being dishonest to themselves, or that they are blind to the truth?
