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

Yes, but, by definition, nobody saw them.

I'm later to the game this year than ever before. I've only seen two films so far that I'd consider for Best Picture, and a list of a couple dozen that have made other people's best ofs.  >:(

To spice things up this year and add an element of randomness to the nominations, I'm going to tabulate the ballots drunk.

Actually, I'll start sober, but I'm going to take a shot every time someone nominates a supporting role as a lead role, and vice versa.

My votes are never heavy in this department anyways, but I am farther behind of the end of the year stuff then any other year. I probably won't have seen a single Oscars best picture nominee (unless Gravity is in there). This baby thing makes getting to the theatre a challenge! Martin Scorsese and David O. Russell aren't helping me out with their runtimes either.

A lot of Spring Breakers votes are going to come from me  :)
