    thanks for your help. what would you have picked?

  • lkorn

    I would have created a Best Cinematography category, but besides that, everything is pretty much to my agreement… I might have replaced Superbad’s nomination place with Juno, but you guys did a swell job with the winners. How do you think Owl Pellets will compare to the Oscars, in terms of winners, I mean…? I think No Country might take Best Picture in comparison to O.P.’s There Will Be Blood.

  • mangold

    i’m guessing our awards will contrast quite a bit with the oscars, except for the best actor/supporting actor winners. no country will probably win picture/director, julie christie will probably win female actor, and cate blanchett or amy ryan will win supporting. my bet for music is on atonement. so yeah, not too similar.

    yeah, we should do cinematography next time, and maybe split up the music award- one for score and one for actual musicals. also, maybe change the writer award to original and adapted.

  • Ashley Powell

    Excellent! I couldn’t agree more…though
    I feel as though that it is necessary for me to check out Once.

  • robfunk

    Bored, so I calculated the winners’ (top three) points, etc. in terms of wins.

    First place = 3 pts
    Second = 2 pts
    Third = 1 pt

    There Will Be Blood: 5 first place spots + 1 second place spot = 17 pts

    No Country for Old Men: 1 first place spot + 2 second place spots + 2 third place spots = 11 pts

    Sweeney Todd: 2 first place spots + 1 second place spot + 2 third place spot = 10 pts

  • lkorn

    Good system… Any winners that you secretly didn’t want to win so you were tempted to cheat a little by changing the points around, but then you decided to play it fair, but really you’re a bit disappointed that a certain placer didn’t win, so you’re going to somehow rig the next O. P. Awards to that if, by chance, you and Evan are unhappy with a winner, you’re overriding opinion prevails?

    I’m kidding of course… But kind of curious.

  • robfunk

    No, the system was not perverted. Evan and I both ranked each categories nominees from 1st to 10th then compiled the points from those lists. The only time any “this one deserves it b/c it hasn’t won enough” took place during tie breaking rounds, when people on our tie breaker lists hadn’t seen the film or another tie came about from said round.

    Yes, there were obviously films that I wish had taken first, but didn’t, but I’m not frustrated from the whole thing.

    Hopefully, for the Second Annual Owl Pellets Awards, we’ll have all contributors submit a list and then compile the top three from there. We just had enough trouble figuring out the system, publicizing it, working on it, that that additional phase just didn’t work, but hey, first time around went pretty smoothly. Next year will probably be even better/more comprehensive.

  • lkorn

    No, I agree… The system seemed to work well. I didn’t mean to offend the creators or the system by my previous post if such a thing occurred.

  • mangold

    i like the system, but yeah it needs more contributors. also, we need to figure something out for people who haven’t seen everything, since obviously that really hurts a film’s chances.

  • lkorn

    I think a good film screening would just need to be done… I know movies are expensive, but for films that someone wasn’t planning on seeing, piracy (though not promoted in any way on this site) can be to his/her advantage, yeah?
