Once again, the epitome of awards season is upon us.

$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....

Fill out your ballot (ONE CHOICE PER AWARDS CATEGORY) by midnight (EST) Friday, the 24th of February.

@tsarstepan,
Sure, I'll play. Smile Mostly guesses. I think there will be a lot of splitting of votes.

@tsarstepan,
OK, I'm in.

@tsarstepan,
If I knew more about it I would be in. Instead I'll just make a few observations if that's OK. I think La La Land will win best film, from what I've heard it's sweeping the awards right now and seems to have resonated with the filmgoer's psyche, much like The Artist did a few years ago.

Not seen Jackie, but Natalie Portman was brilliant in Leon when she was still a kid so my gut would go for her. Oscar judges are quite fickle though and I can see Meryl Streep getting it for her anti Trump speech.

Radio 4's PM programme was really pushing Watani: My Homeland the other night. They had Oscar judge Tim Rice on and we lobbying him to watch it. He said he would but out of fairness would have to watch the others in the same category.

Apparently a lot of the judges rely on third parties to tell them about certain films, very few, if any, watch all of them.

@izzythepush,
Documentary and live action shorts aren't particularly strong categories for me (in terms of actually getting around to or even enjoying when I do). They tend to be the weakest category: narrative wise.

I do however go out of my way to watch the animated short films each year.

@tsarstepan,
I don't really think of documentaries as films to watch at the cinema, they're something to watch on the telly at home. The only documentary I've ever seen at the cinema is Bowling For Columbine.

@izzythepush,
I see a great deal of movies in the movie theater. But I do try and catch a couple of feature length documentaries on the big screen as well. Documentarians need box office love too.

The ones I caught at the cinema for the past two years:
The Eagle Huntress (2016)
Do Not Resist (2016)
The Lovers and the Despot (2016)
Where to Invade Next (2015)
Michael Moore in TrumpLand (2016)
The Wolfpack (2015)
Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil (2015)
Last Days in Vietnam (2014)

Really decision are not in our hands, so we can't choose the best we watched and thought it to be the best one.

I watched part of the Oscars for the first time in forever and Viola Davis' speech reminded me why I stopped. "I became an artist and thank god I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life." Oh please. Bullshit like that is why people think Hollywood is out of touch. Carry on with your self-congratulatory circle jerk. And make sure every acceptance speech is a thinly veiled insult to Trump.

That's certainly not tiresome. Razz

Never seen the appeal in any awards show. Print off a list and use the money for saving orphaned children from being adopted by celebrities.

@izzythepush,
Ive sorta adopted the same view of all televised awards shows, except for the WInter Olympics (no speeches) .

In college a bunch of us used to watch the Miss America end game where they ask each finalist a question ,the answer to which, showed us why these contestants were never in an engineering program.
