  1. Wow. That’s a boatload of award categories lol. Maybe just me, but do they really need so many different categories?

    BEST …

    1. Movie
    2. Director
    3. Screenplay
    4. Actor
    5. Actress
    6. Music
    7. Editing
    8. Cinematography
    9. Special Effects
    10 Makeup/wardrobe
    11. Supporting Actor
    12. Supporting Actress

    Don’t think I’m leaving anything significant out. Am I?

    1. Yeah that’s about right, Globes have around 12 while the Academy has about 24. I don’t mind it though, the art of film is very much a collaborative process so I think it’s fair to honor the different crafts and disciplines going into a production. I actually wish more award organizations would add a Best Ensemble category.

      1. I guess the problem with ensemble is that it doesn’t fit a broad category of movies. Where is the ensemble in a movie where it’s one or two people in it? I’m trying to think how many movies actually that would make sense in that I’ve seen and it’s a small number out of the hundreds this year. Knives Out that fits, sort of. What movies would you apply that to?

      2. Yeah it can be somewhat limited. Although the Screen Actors Guild usually manages to pull it off relatively well with a cast award. It’s not impossible.
