Reply Wed 3 Feb, 2016 02:36 pm
$10 Million in metaphysical prizes maybe awarded to the player who picks the most amounts of Oscar winners from this august batch of actors, filmmakers, and auteur [CHOOSE ONLY ONE FROM EACH CATEGORY PLEASE].

Anybody game? You don't have to actually have watched the movies to be able to play. Just a good sense of randomness and perhaps a dart board....

I haven't seen all of the films on this list but I can with confidence say, you clearly watched too much from the WORST movie nominated this year.

I know I did wrong by even letting any of it play at all, but I was curious what the actors were like and why this stuff made the author tons of money.

@tsarstepan,
I'm just following along, didn't read up this year, just getting interested now; will enjoy seeing who wins the awards, and the a2ker winner.
I was liking Jespah's picks but hey, haven't looked at others yet.

I remember seeing the first Shoah film; if I remember, it was a two day stretch at our local theater.
Major..
Now I want to see the second.

@fbaezer,
Ok, but I trust you from your takes in the past. Somewhat.

As many here know, I'm not up to speed re film -
you all don't have to deal with my hilarious computer.
I could be meaner, and likely smarter.
