it's never too late to make lineups guys, and it's better late than never. Isn't that kind of the point of this series to begin with? I didn't have lineups before I came to MA but because of polls and series like these I've been backtracking my viewings and have gotten all the way to back to 1960 over these last few years (and a lot of these years in the 60s and 70s I had to build up practically from scratch) precisely so I could contribute but also for my own edification. It was a bit of a legwork to be sure but once you've constructed the list you've already done most of the work and from that point on you just have to add things to it as you see them. Now anytime I watch a new movie I can keep track of it and that's an amazing feeling. Two years ago I had only seen like five movies from 1969 and now I have over 20 in my list (same story for 1970, 1989, etc etc). That too is an amazing feeling.
I think that's all, but Irglova and the editing will probs make my ballot too. And maybe two more songs, but you can't go All the Way Down the ballot with one movie, although When Your Mind's Made Up, I suppose there's no point in trying to fight it. I guess that If You Want Me to do make an honest ballot, I'll just be stuck torturing myself trying to find a way to fit seven songs into five slots.
Reaaaal big FYC for this man right here who gives possibly one of my all-time favorite performances in this film (also FYC to the film itself which should be a shoo-in for Original Screenplay at the LEAST):
(Film by the way is Lars and the Real Girl for those who still ought to check it out)
Other FYCs: Atonement for just about everything, but for the love of God, Score and Cinematography at LEAST. And let's get ALL three Brionys into Supporting Actress! Zodiac, duh. But shout-out to John Carroll Lynch for Supporting Actor. stephen back me up Sunshine in all, but VFX at least. Gone Baby Gone for all, but don't forget about a double nomination for Casey this year (both in Lead preferably but I know some of y'all are weird and put him Supporting for Assassination ). 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days for all top eight, but mostly shout-out to Anamaria Marinca. The Tracey Fragments for Ellen Page. Enchanted for Original Song (mainly "So Close") and Amy Adams. Persepolis for Animated and Foreign. 30 Days of Night for Make-up.
About a billion others I'd throw out there in such a great year, but these are the big ones for me (that aren't obvious like No Country or Hot Fuzz).
I always forget about this because I didn't have the category in my own line-ups until very recent, but what are we thinking for Choreography?
The Bourne Ultimatum seems like a shoo-in. Probably Hot Fuzz as well, at least for the final third of the film. I'm considering Atonement if only for that ballsy long take, but I know it's kind of dumb to choose a movie simply for that. What else?
Maybe for musicals we have Enchanted and Across the Universe?
Oh how could I be so stupid. Shoot 'Em Up easily needs to make this category. For further evidence (sorry for the shit quality):

just gonna throw this in here mateys, whatever any of us may think of Pirates 3, its techs were phenomenal and absolutely deserve consideration, especially for costumes, makeup and production design (the Singapore sets alone should make it a lock).
