Greetings! It's time to nominate for the 2020 Xixax Awards. This year, we'll be doing a couple things differently:

The final votes will be cast through Google Forms, and we'll post the results all in one thread.

Acting categories are revamped. We're going to try out Leading and Supporting, with the conventional definitions that come with those terms. If you're not sure if a performance is leading or supporting, go ahead and guess (and your nomination will be counted) or ask for clarification here.

The rest will be the same:

Nominations will last for about 2 weeks starting now. So let's go! Post your nominations here in any format, with any level of completion. Vote for 1 category or 5 or all of them.

Alternatively, you can PM me your nominations.

You can also make a case for a particular nomination here if you so desire.


Categories are:


Best Film
Best Director

Best Female Leading Performance
Best Male Leading Performance
Best Female Supporting Performance
Best Male Supporting Performance
Best Ensemble Cast

Best Screenplay
Best Cinematography
Best Original Music
Best Debut Film
Best Documentary

Living life big time

Jeremy Blackman

For movies released in 2019, consult this list. Although we can make some exceptions. For example, I think we should push Portrait of a Lady on Fire to next year, since no one's seen it, and its wide release is mid-February.

Reminder for the "Most Disappointing Film" category — this is most disappointing, not worst. What was supposed to be good or great but just wasn't? What broke your heart?

Odds are we will especially need help with the smaller categories, so your nominations there will likely have a great impact.

I'm just going to use this forum to remind people that none of you reprobates have watched The Death of Dick Long yet, and all your votes are invalid as a result.

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.
