I'm sure this will be a blazingly popular year ;) It's the earliest I'm going to go with this game, 1910s is a step too far.

--

Intro
For anyone new to this, the aim is to re-run the Oscars for each year but with the benefit of our much better taste & hindsight. Copy and paste the template from the spoiler and fill in your choices for as many (or as few) of the categories as you want. Everyone's points get tallied and the shortlisted nominees will be announced after the deadline, and we run a poll to decide the winners from the shortlist.

Rules
-please use the template (copy & paste from spoiler below)
-only films listed as being released in 1920 on IMDB are eligible
-please state which film you are nominating director/actor/actress for

Notes/FAQs
-Best Film category is open to any type of film/short/documentary/miniseries
-Best Music is not limited to original scores
-If actors/actresses end up getting nominations in both support & lead, the points will be combined in whichever category obtained the most points [i.e. they may end up in a different category to the one you select but your points will always be counted either way]. In the rare case it is an exact split, I exercise my own flawless judgement :folded:

Template


Links
1920 in Film
Movies you've rated on IMDB from 1920
Blind Spots - your unchecked films from 1920 on ICM
Films on your IMDB watchlist from 1920
Films on your ICM watchlist from 1920

All past results, upcoming schedule, etc, are on this thread

I'd love to see art direction, costume design, and editing awards. Maybe even sound.

We could treat the period before 1920 as one year. That would still be an interesting poll?

I was tempted to not submit anything this year (only checked three features and three shorts according to iCM), however, One Week is pretty much the best film that Buster Keaton ever made. It is certainly his funniest.

Yeah I'll consider that, maybe as a bonus when I've done all the other years

Thanks! It says May 20 at the link at the top of the page so that might stop some from casting their votes.

Yeah. One of the admins will need to change that. The deadline highlighted in this thread and the title, though, is May 26th, so hopefully people will look there instead of at the very top.
