    How's Knightley getting nods over Williams, she's the worst actress of her generation.

    Strangely enough, it's not the worst film this year that's guaranteed an Oscar nomination. ;) @Alfred: 1) Obviously your opinion of her acting ability doesn't hold for all. 2) I thought the lead of LoveBytes was better written and developed than in Flowers of Arvika. Edited by 4815162342

    It's not about the character, it's about the person for me, Keira Knightley is just awful and I haven't met a single person, who likes her. Maybe it's an English thing and she has better reputation over the States. ;) I would just hate the fact if she gets nominated, regardless that she's up against Williams.

    It's disappointing to see Williams having a tie-breaker, I don't blame the people, who picked others, I blame the ones, who didn't post votes at all. I don't get it. What's the point of playing this game if you're not there for the Oscars? We shouldn't have tie-breakers with 3 votes, we should be having 10 ballots.

    Director is a mess, still up in the air.

    A lot of categories are a mess.Note, multiple of the two-person/film races are still tied. Since the only thing that would break a tie is another person's vote, if a 2-person race is still tied at the deadline would people want to wait for someone like Hiccup/Electric/etc to submit his votes for the tied categories only, should I break the tie with a coin flip, or should I just admit both picks for a 6-person/film category?Likewise, if two people or films are tied in a race with 3 or more contenders, I will simply have a second-round tiebreaker featuring only those people or films.

    In this case, I think you should just wait for someone else to submit a ballot. Six nominees is just awkward in my opinion.
