But the one I like, the really cute one, is the quick, dependable chap. Nothing he won't do for you in a pinch - so he says.

I've got a dilemma.  I'd prefer not to do these categories at all.  If I submit my choices, I'm contributing to their likelihood of being included.  On the other hand, if they do get included, I'd like my nominations to be under consideration.  Will there be some time between the announcement of the additional categories and the deadline for submissions?
Title: Re: FYC: Other
Post by: sdedalus on March 31, 2012, 04:17:31 PM
You're under no obligation to vote on, or care about, any or every category.

I never said anything about obligation.  If a category is going to be included, I'd prefer my voice to be part of the outcome.

Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

Best Line - "If talent had anything to do with success, then Brooks Brothers would go out of business. Movie studios would be turned into supermarkets."
and
"We're warming up a top rewrite team to rewrite the last top rewrite team."

Best Scene - The Commercial Break. ("Ladies and gentlemen, this break in our motion picture is made out of respect for the TV fans in our audience, who are accustomed to constant interruptions in their programs for messages from sponsors. We want all you TV fans to feel at home, and not forget the thrill you get, watching television on your big, 21-inch screens.")

That's it.

Cool.  Part of me was wondering if you were talking about the later shots with the men and horses visible.



(got a screenshot?)

If anyone would like vid clips instead of screenshots let me know via PM.  I'll gladly get the clips for you and post them up.  Or you can do them your own with free software:

http://vimeo.com/videoschool/lesson/26/video-101-trimming-and-cutting-with-windows-live-movie-maker

For some shots, I think a clip would be better than a screenshot; while a screenshot can say a lot for certain shots.
