I feel like I've watched the key things I wanted to. I think seeing what gets nominated and trying to catch up with those would be the most useful part now.

That's pretty much where I am too.  I'd vote "move up both deadlines" but that isn't an option.

Same for me.

Me too. I'd like to focus on nominated films for rewatches.

At first I wanted to push back both deadlines.  Then I realized that it would be the same problem (not enough time) just at a later date.  Might as well stick with what we got.

They'll be posted today and due next Sunday. Sorry for the delay. Busy times.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Nine ballots received so far. Will that number quadruple by the time I wake up on Wednesday morning? Because that would be awesome.

Don't go crazy refreshing the forums hoping to see the rest of the nominees. There's gonna be a few hour delay minimum before the rest go up. Continued apologies!

The initial plan called for ... final ballots to be due on June 24.

Is anyone ready? I'm so not ready.
