Thanks for that !
I agree about Inglorious Basterds, that should be nominated instead of the dreadful Precious.

While I wasn't as much in awe as others, it seems odd that Duncan Jones doesn't get nominated for best director, yet his film is up for best movie, and he gets a nod for debut feature.

I haven't seen Precious, but from the looks of it it doesn't do anything particularly unique with the subject matter. Does "difficult subject matter" automatically make it one of the best films of the year? I don't get it.

Yup, "difficult subject matter" often wins awards and Precious is indeed a very mediocre film. I suppose its big innovation is that the abused girl isn't pretty and she isn't played by a glamourous actress who is playing "plain". Awards voters like to congratulate themselves for empathising with someone they wouldn't otherwise give a second look.

^ And it's got Mariah Carey in it. It should fail for that alone.

In all fairness, she is surprisingly good in the film and without a ton of make up on she isn't that good looking, so she doesn't look out of place.

The Hangover keeps raging on - surprised to see its big win at the Globes earlier this week, and also very surprised to see its screenplay nom here.

Did you say you were a BAFTA voter? Help us here. Who puts these things up as the nominations? Is there a committee meeting where a very small group of board members decide which films will make the awards look as inclusive as possible? I can't see that there's a point having awards if that's the case.

And where's Zombieland! there's not been a more enjoyable film this year than that. How come only Tarrantino gets past their genre picture filter? I wasn't that amazed by Inglorious Basterds. It component set-pieces weren't strung together that well.

Yeah that wasn't that great either. It was like an Apatow picture but without any soul or meaning. Personally, apart from the dire ending, I think that "Very Bad Things" is a better buddies in trouble in Vegas film.. and "Go" does it a million times better as well.

Yes I'm a voter and there are three voting rounds. All BAFTA members (around 5000 or so) get to vote in each round with the exception of a few specialised subjects (short films for instance), so there isn't a committee. It depends a lot to what degree distibuters make a film available. There were lots of screenings for Precious for instance and screeners got sent out.

Many of the things I vote for don't even make it into the first selection and the distributors forgot to include one of my favourite films this year.


*edit*

I've just voted. I'd forgotten that in the final round you only get to vote in seven main categories, including best film and actors. Members within the right profession get to vote in the specialised subject that applies to them.

Ah that's interesting. Most weird that a film's availability dictates how well it does, not based on the film's merits. I guess people have to see it before they can decide on it, but like with the Oscars, the advertising campaigns, and the money that requires, are the only way to get votes; that seems very counter intuitive. Are they awarding the films or the marketing departments? I guess there's no difference these days

Of course in the end all the major film awards are never really fair and can't be taken too seriously. It very much depends on how much a studio pushes their films and if they feel they are in with a chance they make as sure as possible that as a voter you get to see their film.

The fact that they keep referring to it as "Precious: Based on the novel Push by Sapphire" rather than just "Precious" is enough to dissuade me from seeing it.

Plus it looks like the most depressing movie ever made.


Anyhoo, back to the Bafta noms; I guess Kirsten Stewart will win the rising star award. Carey Mulligan probably deserves it much more, but if it's voted for by the public, the Twiglet fans will swamp the vote.

Hopefully Ms Mulligan will get best actress though.

Isn't that technically part of the animation process though? I guess the very definition of cinematography has changed then?
editAh! I see that it has indeed with the evolution of digital cinematography etc.

They should really update the categories to take new technologies into account. I agree that it would seem odd to award best camera to a film like Avatar, because the job of a cinematographer is split between lots of different people.
