Arts & Faith Top 25 Films on "Waking Up" Nominations Thread

132 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

*UPDATE*: I am slowly compiling a spreadsheet of all nominations here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sfXcS9EgpEyaF94ITih_Ld-osbl6dJ14S2J-7nIN1Ng/edit?usp=sharing


This thread is for nominations and seconds ONLY; discussion and advocacy for your nominations should be posted in this separate thread. I would strongly encourage each of you not to just nominate films without any explanation for why you think they belong on the list. Part of the nominating process should include nominating the film and then going over to the discussion thread to explain why the film merits your nomination and our votes. Please do this.

Nominations will be open until 5/28. The rules are as follows:

1) Nominations must follow this format:

Title:
Director:
Year:
Language:
IMDB Link:
YouTube Link (a clip of/trailer for the film):
Link to the A&F thread on the film (if there is one):

2) Every nomination must be seconded before appearing on the ballot (some require thirds - see below). To second, simply reply to the nomination post with “Second.”

3) Every A&F member can nominate up to 25 films.

4) There is no limit on nominating films from the same director; however, only the top three vote-getters per director will be allowed on the final list.

5) No films released after December 31, 2016 can be nominated. (Like last time, if there is a heavily advocated for exception, we’re open to allowing for it.)

6) TV series of more than one season cannot be nominated.

7) Miniseries and special TV-to-cinema works like Dekalog, which have appeared in theaters sometimes or in parts, are eligible for nomination; they must receive a third nomination to appear on the final ballot.

8) Trilogies and series of films shall be considered as separate films unless:
a. They were filmed at once by the same director and crew, e.g. Lord of the Rings;
or
b. The theme and plots are interwoven in such a way as to necessitate the watching of all films to complete an understanding of each, e.g. Three Colors.
Trilogies and series nominated as a single work must also receive a third nomination to appear on the final ballot.
