    Interesting facts: (More to come)

     

    - Mushishi is the most nominated film in CAYOM 2.0 history to not have been nominated for BP at 15 nominations. The previous record was 9, held by Spark (Y5), Avarice (Y7) and The Seventh Seal (Y1). (Side Note: The Concert's End at 11 nominations would've also broken this record)

    - Cinema Studies is the least nominated BP nominee in CAYOM 2.0 history, tied with Rich and Famous from Y7. Coincidentally, both of these films were released by Spaghetti. 

    - Mushishi is also the most nominated film written by a first time player in CAYOM 2.0 at 15 nominations. The previous record was 12, achieved by The Coming Storm in Y3.

    I am very happy about having 3 Best Picture nominees in one year.

    It was an odd year definitely, not that many strong contenders. Mushishi's 15 noms indicate not many strong blockbusters as well. One weakness of CAYOM Oscars is the tendency of players to cluster nominations in films based on critical reception, even if other films might be more obviously worthy in certain tech categories.Don't expect a repeat next year.  ;)

    The results I don't think will be nearly as predictable this year (though I don't know that much because I've been absent all years and I've only tabulated 2 ballots so far lol cus I've been lazy :P)

    These predicts were pretty tough. I'd say that GotW is the only lock here.

     

    Best Picture
    The Bronx is Burning (Because Alex Spark was in Hand Drawn Heroes. Trust me, Numbers.)

    Best Animated Feature
    Hand Drawn Heroes (Because this has a bit more passion than Redwall)

    Best Director
    David Lynch – The Giver (A tough one, but I decided to go with the most well recieved)

    Best Ensemble
    Mushishi (Though it could be Concert's End)

    Best Actor
    Jared Leto – Flowers for Algernon (A very tough one, but this may be the film's only big shot)

     

    Best Actress
    Anna-Sophia Robb – Cinema Studies (Maybe just wishful thinking on my part, but in my opinion, she honestly does get a lot to do, and most people did praise the acting for this film.)

    Best Supporting Actor
    Jeff Bridges – The Giver (Either him or Chiwetel, but Bridges seems more likely)


    Best Supporting Actress
    Rose Byrne – Mushishi (Seems like the best choice in a weak year for the category)

    Best Voice Actor/Actress in a Leading Role
    Neil Patrick Harris – Hand Drawn Heroes (He'll probably ride off the film's good will.)

    Best Voice Actor/Actress in a Supporting Role
    John Hurt – The Legend of Redwall (Should be a likely victory for this awesome actor)

    Best Original Screenplay
    Resonance (Cinema Studies relies more on dialogue, but this may get it simply because it's liked more. The Concert's End may surprise, though)

    Best Adapted Screenplay
    The Bronx is Burning (A tough one, but never underestimate a Scorsese directed screenplay)

     

    Best Original Score
    Joe Hisashi – Mushishi (If he doesn't win, I might be more pissed than Rukaio)

    Best Original Song
    Flowers for Algernon – Everyone Needs a Home (Seems the most baity of all the lyricized songs)


    Best Film Editing

    Resonance (Aronofsky + Psychological Horror = Sold)

     

    Best Cinematography

    The Giver (Black & White + David Lynch = Likely win)

    Best Production Design

    Mushishi (The unique period flair could give it an edge)


    Best Costume Design
    The Concert’s End (Early 20th century politicians in Europe, so expect lavish costumes)

    Best Makeup
    Dragon Age: Awakening (Because the last Dragon Age film won this category)

    Best Sound Mixing
    Resonance (It's all about sound and sound terror, but Tommy may also pull an upset)

    Best Sound Editing

    Resonance (Same reasoning as above, but Tommy probably has a smaller chance)

    Best Visual Effects

    StarCraft: Brood War (Though Little Mermaid might be able to take it)

    Best Use of Action
    StarCraft: Brood War (Seems like the most popular choice of the contenders)

     

    Best Documentary

    Guardian of the West (Duh.)

     

    NOTE: Do not let these predictions influence your votes in any way, and be sure to vote for Hourglass Pictures' releases!

    Might as well do my own predicts as well.

     

    Best Picture- No idea

    Honestly, I don't know where this one will go. Bronx had lots of people voting for it, but it didn't make many Top 5 lists, possibly suggesting the push isn't as strong as it appears. I think maybe it'll be The Giver, but I can't be sure. At the moment, it looks like it could go to anyone. Except probably Cinema Studies. (Sorry Spaghetti)

     

    Best Animated Picture- Hand Drawn Heroes

    Yeah, with Rorschach no longer voting, this seems pretty assured.

     

    Best Director- David Lynch

    Del Toro or Aronofsky could take it though.

     

    Best Ensemble- Toss up between Mushishi and Concert's End

    The former has a strong central cast and very very nearly was nominated for all 4 acting categories (and would've been if it wasn't for that meddlin' Numbers (*shakes fist*)) and the latter has everyone in existence. At the moment, I'm leaning towards the latter.

     

    Best Actor: Liam Neeson

    Because people love Liam Neeson here.

     

    Best Actress- Isla Fisher

    Same reason as I put her in my predictions thread.

     

    Best Supporting Actor- Jeff Bridges or Chiwetel Ejiofor

    It's one of these two. We all know it.

     

    Best Supporting Actress- No idea

     

    Best Voice Actor in a Leading Role- Harris or Eisenberg (with Serkis possibly riding in as a Dark Horse)

    Again, we all know it.

     

    Best Voice Actor in a Supporting Role- John Hurt

    Because it's John Hurt. And if he doesn't win, I shall lay down some Hurt. (Heheh, I'm writing that one down)

     

    Best Original Screenplay- Cinema Studies

    Resonance is more dependant on visuals than Cinema Studies, so this may take it thanks to that.

     

    Best Adapted Screenplay- The Bronx is Burning

    The only non-visual dependant competition is Flowers and I feel this will probably trump it.

     

    Best Original Score- Mushishi

    It's Joe fucking Hisashi. No other words needed.

     

    Best Original Song- Hand Drawn Heroes

    I'm just guessing this one. It'll probably be this or Flowers.

     

    I'm going to ignore most of the technical categories since I have no idea how they'll go but, let me just say, if Mushishi doesn't win all of them then my fictional propaganda machine has not been doing its job properly.

     

    Best Visuals Effects- Mushishi

    Again, fictional propaganda machine should've been working on this one.

     

    Best Use of Action- Starcraft Brood War

    On account of being the most liked action blockbuster this year.

     

    Best Documentary- Guardians of the West

    Duh.
