The number of nominees in a given category was determined by the number of nominations submitted for that category, so that each category had 3-6 finalists, with 5 being the preferable number (in the event that either 4 or 6 had to be chosen, 4 were chosen for lesser categories, and 6 were chosen for the major categories).

I will decline to vote in this seeing that Howl's Moving Castle, and many other great movies, miss the thing.

I Call for a Boycott! :x

How the hell do War of the Worlds, Chicken Little, and Charlie and the Choclate Factory, just to name a few, worthy of any nominations?

C'mon, Harry Potter was ok, but it was severly lacking in some areas, just because all the little fanboys of harry potter vote for it, dosn't mean it should be nominated for diddly squat. :roll: The same goes with the Time Burton fanboys.

It's pretty sad when King Kong dosn't get any big nomination. That proves that it is fanboys, not by popularity, because Kong is #5 of 2005.

Your loss.

I assume you meant "are" instead of "do", but they are worthy of nominations because people voted for them obviously. Not me - I haven't seen any of those.

So we should just disqualify votes from fanboys and only accept what you nominate? That hardly seems like an awards competition. More like castleinthesky picks The Best of 2005. I can't think of an awards program that doesn't base its selections on what people vote for. If anything, this was an even purer process since there wasn't the whole issue of campaigning to us. Sure, the films that are nominated are the ones that more people saw, but just because people saw them doesn't mean they had to vote for them.

Seeing as how all of the Polls & Games survivors are dictated by alliances and what a select few people want to stay in play, I think it's highly refreshing to see awards based purely on what people like. And I think Aaron has done a great job so far at coordinating this. If negativity is all you're going to bring, perhaps it is best you boycott this thread.

Fanboys only voted for these movies because they loved the movie because it either was a Harry Potter movie or a Time Burton movie. They voted for these movies because they like the thing related to the movie, not because the movie was actually great.

These awards are for the "best of", not which has a "bigger fan following". :roll:

Oh, and by the way Luke, Aaron is doing a great job. It is not his fault in what movies get nominated.

Voted and posted.

I suspect that I was heavily leaning towards a certain comic-book adaptation, but it deserves to win SOMETHING this year.

Pardon my query, but who exactly is Time Burton? Did Tim Burton and Time Warner have a big merger that I haven't heard about? ;)

Anyhoo, this awards program is in the same vein as a People's Choice system, castle - it's not a "high arts" program like the Goya or BAFTA awards, for example. So the films that will be recognized are the mainstream, mass-produced, big-name offerings like Harry Potter and Star Wars and King Kong. Much as I'd love to increase the masses' awareness to other less-known but better-quality films, it's just the way the herd moves. :roll:

Dunno if I'll vote in this yet or not. I'll have to have a look-see at all the groups up for selection.

For those who feel scorned by the finalists, perhaps you can take some comfort in the fact that it was a very close race, and the arthouse films didn't exactly get trampled, even if they didn't all make the cut.

And yes, the media awards shall be tended to soon, perhaps in a slightly different capacity. More on that soon.

I'd vote, but I don't think I'd do the nominations justice, because a lot those films I either haven't seen or they need to be rewatched to be properly judged.

I'm perfectly fine with this slate of finalists. It was to be expected. However, can I put in an early bid to change the voting system for next year? Even as a group voting process, this still does not determine who we think is the best of the year. It's very much in the vein of who-saw-what and how many movies can a nominate? Point in case: the same nominees appear over in over again. Basically, ten movies everyone saw were chosen and given nominations every which way. I chose not to vote because I knew this would happen, so I'm not complaining. It's just that the preferential voting system is the only way to determine what a group thinks is the best and to ensure that everyone's vote has equal weight.

:)

Everyone's vote did have equal weight this way. It's inevitable that the movies that many people saw (and liked) wound up in the finalists. The only thing the preferential voting system does is tip the scales so that if a few people liked one movie, they can put it atop all their nominees and easily get it in. Which presumably leads to more alliances and eventually, finalists that only a few people saw, i.e. The UD Oscars.

I think your logic is quite the other way around. Even if a group of people really liked, say, Brokeback Mountain, that doesn't mean everyone is going to put it as #1. Maybe I am naive, but I didn't think people would vote based on alliances (that's for Survivor, after all). Simply tallying up votes is majority rules, which results in similar nominees for every category. As for "tipping the scales," I would expect the preferential voting system would grant one nomination (two at most) to the minority of voters. That would be enough to make me happy. Everyone walks away with a little of something. On further expection of the nominees, I count fewer than ten movies represented overall. If that's what the majority wants, then I'm OK with that. I can step back from an annual thread, no probelm. But I ask, if that's the case, what's the point? :?
